It's a very special day for all of us here at the Gawker empire. Nick Denton, titan of finance, destroyer of worlds, and master of us all, is celebrating a milestone birthday. You can imagine the scene at the office: champagne, canapés, solid gold busts of Nick's head for every guest... it's really something. Nick hired the Emerson String Quartet to provide live musical entertainment (they're playing a collection of his favorite Motorhead songs), and, in a few minutes, he's going to pick three employees, strangle them, and bury them in the backyard, just because he can. Happy Birthday, Mr. Denton! Here's wishing you another sixty wonderful years!
