happy birthday wapuu

happy_birthday_wapuuI can’t believe that wapuu is already five. It’s hard to put into words how much joy he has brought to my life. There is no hardship or problem that can’t be overcome with wapuu’s help.

People think I’m nuts when I say this but I don’t see any possible way to get to 51% without wapuu. He’s a unifying force that I think is absolutely vital for the WordPress community.

wapuu has had a pretty amazing first five years and I can’t wait to see what he does with the next five.


I struggled for quite a bit trying to decide what to get wapuu for his birthday. In the end I commissioned a portrait done up in a pop art style that I had printed on wood.

Note: wapuu’s birthday is on February 19th and I’m so excited to celebrate it that I decided to celebrating it at 12:01am Fukuoka time. That way I can get away with starting the celebration a bit early 🙂 .
