Happy Belated Birthday to Mr. Yuk

Somehow, I missed Mr. Yuk's birthday. He turned 34 years old on March 7. I didn't recall this, but he is nine months younger than my youngest brother. Mr. Yuk's distinctive look and song have been warding children away from poisonous substances since 1971. Thanks Mr. Yuk and Happy Birthday!
