His mature age is certainly going to make any performances of “The Real Slim Shady” feel just a little off and it gives a whole new meaning to this agist passage: “‘Cause at the rate I’m goin’ when I’m thirty/ I’ll be the only person in the nursin’ home flirting/ Pinchin’ nurses’ asses when I’m j***in off with Jergens.” Where’s your walker, Mr. Mathers?
If this fun little fact didn’t blow your mind sufficiently, we’ve gathered a list of people and things who have also celebrated their 40th birthdays this year:
The series finale of Bewitched
George Carlin’s “Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television”
The Miami Dolphins
“Hey, Mikey! He likes it!”
“School’s Out” by Alice Cooper
The Price is Right*
The Egg McMuffin
The Joy of Sex
The Watergate Scandal
Miss Frisby and the Rats of NIMH
That’s right, in the same year as little Marshall took his first breath, Jack Woltz woke up to find a horse head in his bed and Richard Nixon began his descent into crook territory. Crazy.
*The “new” Price is Right reboot with Bob Barker launched in 1972.
