Happy Birthday Guy!

Yes, I am fully aware of what day it is. However. Kalinara once theorized that Guy was an Aries. Makes perfect sense to me. Also, although Hal Jordan has an official birthday (February 20th) and so does John Stewart (October 17th) for some reason both Guy and Kyle do not. Therefore, I am assigning Guy, April 1 as his official birthday. Besides, it seems the sort of joke that an unforgiving Providence WOULD play on poor Guy.

In the early days at least, Guy was,in addition to being rude, crude and lewd, the butt of an awful lot of jokes. Steve Englehart did his part, as did Gerard Jones, but of course, the real masters were Giffen and DeMatteis over at the old Justice League. They continued their antics with both "I Can't Believe its the Justice League" and "Formerlly Known as the Justice League", and the Super Buddies, which may be out of continuity, and WAY over the top, but which were a lot of fun nevertheless.

So, in honor of the day,here are some of Guy's least finest moments.

It...it's just so perfect. Poor Guy.

Wally and Chunk come to visit Guy. Guy has a serious "Hal" reaction.


We learn what Guy REALLY wants. It's little more information than we want.


Guy vs. console. Console wins

The darndest things just keep happening!


Guy vs the Mouse. The Mouse also wins.

Later on, fortunately, once he'd gotten his brains back and grew up a little bit, fewer ridiculous things began to happen to Guy. Instead, he became the instigator of the jokes, not to mention becoming the virtual master of the One-Liner.

I still find this utterly hilarious.

Knows just how to turn a phrase.

Nobody can roll his eyes like Guy.

And finally, one of the SUPREME moments in Comic Book History. Only Guy would have the balls to do something like this. I do have to say, that Bats took it surprisingly well. Kyle is embarrassed, Superman and John are flabberghasted, while Wonder Woman seems to be quite...intrigued.

Happy Birthday, Guy!

Oh, but in Guy's defense, though he's often been depicted as a "victim," he's a pretty good prankster himself! :-) He really should pull more stuff on Hal, though. Hal DESERVES it.

I wish...I really do wish that Guy had more time to pull some really serious pranks. I still think that he should get together with John, who is probably secretly a marvelous practical joker himself, and do a number on Hal...who certainly deserves it.

I think that at least Hal would take it better nowadays than he probably would have when Guy was still nuts. But the getting them all drunk on New Year's gag is still a classic.

That last picture, I can't decide what I find funnier: John's look of horror, or Kyle face-palming. Although, the follow-up, where Bats says to tell Guy he needs a shave is pretty funny too. I know he's Batman, but I give him credit for remaining composed in the face of. . . that.

Remind me again -- what were Wally and Chunk doing in Guy's shower?

Ahhh...the shower scene. Wally had accidentally put on a helmet that turned him into basically an idiot-savant, and Chunk was there to rescue him from himself. Chunk wanted to join the JLI, and Wally and he decided to just show up at the door. Guy in the meantime was primping for an interview by a hot female reporter, and kept trying to throw them out.

They proceeded to manhandle Guy's poor half-nekkid unconcious body for QUITE some time.

It was lovely.
