Happy Birthday Fedora

I was going to do a modification of the Fedora birthday cake image with Marilyn Monroe coming out of the cake but…. I decided against the idea.

So, my birthday present to Fedora is SPARING YOU ALL the horrible image I’ve described above by not drawing it.

      • Well, I spend half of the day a couple of days ago trying to find the punchline for a joke starting with 5 people around a cake with 5 candles for the webcomic. It was supposed to be a explosion and something coming out, but I wasn’t able to come with something both funny and Fedora-related.

  3. Hmm…

    One of my servers here is named marilyn. But my server coming out of a cake doesn’t sound like much fun to draw. It’s probably not much fun to look at, either. So thanks for not drawing my server coming out of a cake. 😉
