Three cheers for the birthday boy!

He's celebrating his birthday, but he's not sure anyone else is.

Mickey says that all the attention seems to be going to other folks in their 80s: Betty While, Charlie Rangel, Tony Bennett, etc. "No one cares about me at all," Mickey complained. "I guess they're waiting until I either reach 90 or die."

Shaking his little head from side to side, the sad little mouse pointed out, "Of course if I had been arrested for driving under the influence or been caught texting to girlfriends other than Minnie, then I'd be in the news."

Mickey has revealed exclusively to The Spoof that he's thinking of branching out to other fields of endeavor. It won't be easy. "I'd like to have a clothing line," he said, "but clothing consultants say my wardrobe choices are too limited. Red pants and yellowish brown shoes are no longer in, they tell me." Although a reality show is a possibility, Mickey isn't counting on it, stating, "Since I'm not real, I don't think my chances are that good."

He's thought about trying to develop a fragrance line for men, but he's not sure that guys would be eager to take recommendations from a rodent.

Fans who know of some career opportunities for Mickey are asked to contact him. Call him at 1-800-Mickey1 or email him at MrMouse82@Yahoo.web. He also has Facebook and Twitter accounts.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
