Each year at my birthday, known as The Brannigan, I perform a special speech. This is the speech from Brannigan 2009.
Welcome to Brannigan 2009, Brannigan 6. It’s now time for the annual speech
Good evening. In less than an hour young adults from here will join others from around the world, and you will be launching the largest celebration in the history of mankind.
Mankind… That… word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences any more. We will be united in our common interests.
Perhaps it’s fate that today is in the month of November, and you will once again be fighting for our birthdays. Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution, but from annihilation. We’re partying for our right to live. To exist.
And should we win the day, the month of November will no longer be known as Wes and Newbs’ birthday, but as the month when the world declared in one voice, “We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight!” We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive!
Today we celebrate our Birthday.
