Dear Famous Person ... Sincerely, Smudge Ink: May

by Sabrina Garber

Just a few notes we'd like to send this month to Princess Charlotte, Tony Hawk, André the Giant, Ellie Kemper, and Margaret's parents ...

Happy Birthday, Princess Charlotte | Smudge InkTHIS CARD to Princess Charlotte (born May 2, 2015)

Dear Princess Charlotte,

Happy 1st Birthday! You are just. too. cute. to ignore on your big day. The fact that you don’t know how famous you are makes you even more adorable. I don’t tend to use the word “lovely” very often, but I feel it’s commonplace in the British vernacular, making this card perfect for you! Also, I hope your brother is nice to you on your birthday and doesn’t try to upstage you in his new robe. Happy birthday!

Sincerely, Deb

PS: You and your family should really consider a visit sometime – we have a guest room.

Happy Birthday, Tony Hawk | Smudge InkTHIS CARD to Tony Hawk (born May 12, 1968)

Hey Tony! You are going to be 49 years old. Daaaaaaaang brah. You're gettin' up there, but I'm sure you're just as awesome at skate boarding as you always were. So go ahead and grind, carve, ollie, caballerial, fakie, and pop shove-it! And as always, don't forget to get a little goofy (pun intended)! Just don't hurt yourself. Happy birthday!

Sincerely, Clayton

Happy Birthday, Andre the Giant | Smudge InkTHIS CARD to André the Giant (born May 19, 1946)

Dear André the Giant,

Last year I read Cary Elwes's memoir, As You Wish, about the making of The Princess Bride. I always loved Fezzik, but after learning a little more about you as a real-live man, I was even more impressed. You were larger than life in every way. We'll all raise a glass (or 100) to you to celebrate your birthday!

Sincerely, April

Congrats on Your Pregnancy, Ellie Kemper | Smudge InkTHIS CARD to Ellie Kemper (expecting first child in August 2016)

Dear Ellie,

I feel like Kimmy Schmidt would appreciate a pocketful of bright confetti to celebrate your pregnancy! I don’t know how you finished filming Season 2 without a peep but I guess that’s the unbreakable way. Although I was tempted to binge watch, I actually stretched it out over a few weeks, amazing! I hope the rest of the pregnancy is as perfect as Kimmy’s laugh-out-loud references circa 1995. A heartfelt congrats to you and your husband … it’s going to be, y’know, a fascinating transition!

Sincerely, Sabrina
