Happy b-day, Iowa's mom!

Dr Alice

Dear Mrs. Burge:

Sorry to pile in so incredibly late, but I hope you had a fantastic birthday. Your son is a great guy and he knows a thing or two about cars, too.


We all know and adore Jesus' mom and now we get know a little of Iowahawk's mom who is adorable. Happy Birthday Dave's mom.

Yojimbo the Greek

Wow happy birthday Mom Iowahawk, you should be proud of your scion, he provides quality entertainment for the masses at reasonable prices. I know you would feel better if he got a real job but for now just rest easy knowing that he lightens the day for an awful lot of us drunks and degenerates.


Yeah my wife speaks publicly of her own rape and i can t take it capable gang rape defination kseni rape porn sites alinuta


Happy belated birthday Mrs. Burge. I hope you spoke to your jailers about the poor quality of the bologna sandwiches and weak koolaid in the clink.
Your son is very funny and you should be proud you birthed him. Which makes you a birther, I guess. Bonne anniversaire.

Will B. Donne

Happy, Happy, Birthday Baby! Your offspring is a couple of beers short of a six pack.


Render's mom says he better say happy birthday to Iowahawk's mom.



Yo ... Ya still got Mom's car?
What? She traded it in for a defective new Toyoter?
Well, at least you can write a nifty song about dogs, pickup trucks, trains 'n stuff when yer Ma gets outa prison.
Might even be the best song ever ... A BIG seller!
Now that's a Happy Birthday indeed!


No One You Know

Happy Birthday Dave Burge's Mom. On this most auspicious occasion, I would like to pass on some advice my father gave to me.
1. Never date a woman with gold teeth
2. Never play pool with someone named after a city.

I've tried to live my life according to those little bits of wisdom, and today I spend my spare time reading blogs authored by people such as your son, so "grain of salt" and all that.....

Dick Stanley

Why, yes, yes, yes. I'd do it for that pert hair perm alone. And the sly wink. But what's with the stacked corn?

Bernadette Flores

Happy birthday David's mother. Thank you for giving us David. How many times did you drop him on his head?

Eli K.

Happy Birthday


Happy Birthday, Mother-of-Iowahawk!

I would send you my AMEX info but the gummint already took it. They ran up such a tab at the UAW Motors Retirement Lodge Bar, I had to take out a second mortgage offered by Dodd-Frank Bank of Fire Island to pay it.

I'm sending the other August 4th birthay boy a message, too. It is either the Bill Withers classic "Lein on Me" or the Harry Nilsson "You're Breaking My Heart."


Happy Birthday!

You have my permission to be extremely proud of your son, who uses humor to convince people to do the right thing, day in and day out. It's very rare to find someone with such a gift who is willing to put in the hard work to make something of it.

Thank you very much for the way you raised him.



how do I know that it really is HER birthday? Does she behave like a real Leo? Not with that kind of rap record.....

My birthday is August 1 so you can wish me a happy birthday instead :)

Dick E

Dear Mrs. Burge,

A very happy birthday to you!

As a token of my esteem, I would be pleased to advance you some bail money for your next brush with the law. Just send me your bank routing number and account number, and you’ll have the money lickety-split.

Best regards.


Dear Mrs. Burge:

Happy Birthday to you. Any woman who had to raise a son like Iowahawk deserves a credit card.

My brother's in in the mail...


Happy Birthday! I hope you have a son skillful enough to slip you a shiv shape enough to hold some of the biker chicks who might be attracted to that fine form. I'm pretty confident.

Old Codger

Sorry, got distracted. Happy Birthday young lady.

But I really hate those overused banal phrases.

Old Codger

"Just saying" and "or something" should be banned from the internet.


Happy Birthday Mrs. Hawk,

Greetings to you in the name of the Lord,I am unable to send you the information requested, but I do have a house I could let you rent at a reasonable rate.

So i would want you to really bear with me.I am willing to rent out the house for the price of $900 plus utilities like water, heat, washer and dryer hookup,air condition, Refrigerator, internet cable, Pets are considered and available for move in Immediately...Don't be surprised when you get to the home and see a for sale sign in the home, i had the intention of selling the home but i thought about it again and decided to rent out the home to any one that can really take good care of the house.....Because it is a very beautiful home and i will always love to call it my home....So i will want you not to bother yourself about any sign you see in the home saying it is for sale and also i have inform the realtor that incharge it before to remove it but am not sure if he do that,because am no more working with him any more due to his attitued and also is not trustfull.....and i don't want you to contact them because i am now renting out my house and don't have anything with them anymore. If you are willing to see the inside, then you can peek through the windows, because i have the keys here and i hope you understand.......By peeking through the windows, you will be able to see a lot of the interior.

Good B-Day Hawk Mom!

We regret that your son did not fulfill his early promise in the exciting field of air-conditioning repair, but we know that this has not caused him to lose his love for you.

I am about to offer him paying work and I know that, should he accept, his moving out of the attic will be the very bestest present I can give you.

 Your Roach buddy

It must be time for blue corn meal and fresh kilt meat, grilled, not baked into a cake. Covered in Jäger frosting and lit with Roman candles for your special day, out on bail. Careful where you bite (might find the file). Wash it down with Andre Brut while we all hoot "Heppy Birfdaze"


Happy Birthday Lady Hawk!! You don't look a day over 71 (although we'll see how that goes on the 5th)!!!


Happy B-Day Iowahawk's Mom! I would like to offer my services for your upcomimg parole hearing. For the low payment of $5000, I may be able to see to it that certain members of the board are "sympathetic" to your case.

Signed, Rod Blagojevich

Guy T.

Happy birthday!


Happy birthday, Mrs. Iowahawk. You must be very ashamed of David.

A. Sullivan

A most happiest of birthday wishes, I-hawk mum. I'm afraid I'm a bit short on quid after my weekend in P-Town. (Those Brazilian male hookers weren't cheap but they were yummy! Plus, the X-tay bill got a little out of hand.) But frankly, I'm not really convinced that you actually conceived this Iowahawk fellow.


Happy birthday, and many happy returns! Hope the ile-fay in the ake-cay made it through the screening process. If not, we'll see you at the parole hearing, anyway.


Have a happy, Mrs. B!

Lori Grubbs

Happy birthday to the sweet one who birthed Iowahawk. May you enjoy many, many more (years, not Iowahawks)!


Happy b-day Mrs. I-hawk.

I've been told that you inheret two things from your kids. Senility and poverty; so make sure junior-hawk is buying the drinks. Before you forget how much he owes ya ;)


In celebration of your day, I will forward a slightly used Ginzu knife and a pocket fisherman. I need an address since the your son's PO Box is under Federal scrutiny. Remember, it's the thought that counts.

Mumblix Grumph

Happy birthday, ma'am. I see that the cake with a file in it arrived without incident.

Bill Spencer

Happy Birthday Madam! Seventy two! That's almost a hundred! (I think ...)

I will provide my credit card, etc. just as soon as someone agrees to let me have one. I do ask for them. The folks behind the desks only laugh. And laugh ...

I promise you that next year I will bake you a special cake with a very special file secreted within.

Again, Happy Birthday!

Slightly Above Average

Happy birthday, Hawkmom. Please find enclosed the 'good faith' money Dave requested to show I can be trusted to split the inheritance from that nice Nigerian fellow with you in an equitable manner. The password for my PayPal account is "FluFFyBunny".

Chris from Lakeland

Happy 42nd Anniversary of your 30th Birthday, Ms. Burge!

I'm sending you a cuddly, quilted, orange jumpsuit with nice big pockets for stashing your flask and stogies!

David W

Dear Mrs. Burge,
It is with a deep and honest sincerity, and more than a little Old Forester, that I write to wish you a most happy and memorable birthday. Birthdays are a time of reflection, which all-too-often leads to a time of alcoholic binge. I want you to know that this year, its ok. We understand. As the young kids say "we feel you, sister."

We too have often wondered "What might have been, had the Burges chosen the Asian kid those many years ago," or "Why did they have to teach him to read?" But the years of sacrifice, struggle, and (certainly in your case) hiding, were worth the effort. Though teaching the Iowahawk that "life doesn't run on liquor and old cars" may still be on your bucket list, he did manage to absorb enough of your principles, wisdom, and wreckless deviance to find and trap the Hawkette, which legally or not, ultimately did lead to the arrival of the Hawkspring. For that, at least, most of the world is grateful. Especially Typepad.

So on August 4th, I encourage you to stop and smell the corn. Don't dwell on "what might have been," but revel quietly and privately in your life's accomplishments. Tell those you love that you love them. Focus on the bright and wonderful moments, and the impressive and important accomplishments of your life, and do not dwell on those moments that others may have seen as failures. They do not define you.

When none of that really does it for you, get liquored up and tell all of them "they can kiss your ass" or the timeless "I brought you into this world, and I can take you out." Its your day, make it memorable.

We know you through David, and somehow, we all still love and respect you. Starting around your 3rd gin and tonic, remind him of that every 10 minutes or so.

Happy Birthday, IowaMom :)

And thanks!


Happy Birthday, Iowahawk's mom, and many happy returns of the day.


Happy Birthday HawkMom


VISA number... (eh, just a sec... someone walking by with a wallet about to fall out...)


I wish to wish your mother a very happy birthday and to inform her that she may have won the Irish lottery, God willing, if we can just extract further details and etcetera.

With Kindest regards.


Happy Birthday HawkMa! That ride you're sitting in was almost as pretty as you!

The Ancient Mariner

Can we really trust a woman who has that much corn stashed away for making likker in the dead of winter? I think not!...Unless....she's being coerced by a close family member or a religious sect enforcement thug...

Ah, what the hey. Happy Birthday, MamaHawk! You did good with raising your youngun!


Everyone got that, so I started using the hash tag #ObamaGifts on Twitter - kind of a gift register for our Great Leader.

First up was a deck of Race Cards, illustrated with portraits of the oppressed and some leading race-baiters.

Join the fun

Anthony Bialy

Happy birthday, Mrs. Hawk. Thank you for teaching me my most cherished life lesson: I do the time, I don't let the time do me.


Fantastical Happy Birthdaze, Mrs. 'Hawk, with many more coming down the Route 66 pike~!


Happy Birthday, Mrs. Burge.

Thanks for raising such a fine, upstanding young man, and best of luck with those over-zealous officials.


Izzat real Iowa corn in them silos LA boy? Here I thought your mid-west heritage was merely a cheap ironic ploy, like hipsters wearing trucker caps and swilling PBR.

As a gift to you on your birthday Mizz Burge,I am smoking at this moment one of my newly purchased Cuban Habanos. Maybe not as thoughtful as a card but rest assured I am thoroughly enjoying it.


Your son is teh win, Mrs. Burge.

Happy Birthday, Momma Hawk.


Happy Birthday, Mrs. Burge! My credit card's in the mail!
...that's how that works, right?

new balance

If a man empties his purse into his head, no man can take it away from him, an investment in knowledge alaways pays the best interest.Do you understand?

Hey Burge! I used to know a guy named Burge and I called him Burge because I liked the way it sounded. Is it O. K. if I call you Burge, Burge?
Oh yeah, and Happy Birthday Burge's Mom.

John Alway

Happy Birthday to you Mrs. Burge!!! My credit card number is 123456789 Exp 3002 December. You are welcome to buy as much as anything you want with it.

I hope you have a fantastic day!


Best wishes,
...John Alway!

SAH(and drink)Mom

Happy Birthday, HawkMom!
In lieu of my credit card information, I pass along this video - As a mother myself, I understand how big a milestone it is to switch that evening bottle over to PBR.


Happy Birthday Mrs. Burge. I never did believe anything Dave said about you. No one could ever treat their own son that way. Glad you're out of jail this year. If you can manage to stay out of Dave's little stash for a little longer you can enjoy this birthday from the outside. Dave said it was OK to use his AmEx card to get your self a little something since he mentioned he wouldn't "be buying that &(^%&%*% a damn thing this year". So here's his credit card info. Acct #984047473287332. exp. 04/13 Code #6880
Have a wonderful day!

Happy Birthday Mrs Burge!

How much did you drink when you were pregnant with him?

just sayin'


Happy Brthday, Iowahawk's Mom!

- from Traction Control

You've got a good son who would remember his momma's birthday like this.

Herbert Hill

Mrs. Burge, Happiest of birthdays to you. My own mother and you would have a great deal to discuss, it seems. She generally recommends tequila slammers.

Joy McCann/Miss Attila

Most of my money is kept . . . you know, out of the bank. Perhaps I could ship the money directly to Mrs. Burge in small, unmarked bills?
I'll send it to the farm via UPS, hidden in a pinata shaped like a 1960s-era Caddy convertible.
I hope that will suffice . . .


Dang it. I fell for it. But it did make me laugh. I decided not to leave an appropriate message where indicated.


David is such a good boy to do this for you, Mrs. Burge. Enjoy your day!

Joe Redfield

Happy Birthday Mrs. Iowahawk! As a special present from me to you, pop on over to the Chicago Federal Reserve and help yourself.




LOL. Another good one from the master of satire. Thanks Mrs. Burge for raising such a gem.

btw Twitter is a happier place with @iowahawkblog in it.

brad essex

Happy bday mrs. burge may you enjoy the freedom of being out of jail and have a great day


That's really funny


Ahh...I see that you also received MO spam.

The recipe for MO Spam insists that it remain tasteless.
