OFF THE WALL NEWS FOUNDER AND SENIOR EDITOR DAVE TAYLOR TURNS 61

OTW FOUNDER TRIED TO KEEP HIS BIRTHDAY LOW KEY IF NOT QUIET, BUT DUE TO A POSSIBLE LEAK, IT TURNED INTO A TON OF FUN.....

BRIDGEPORT, MN


Dave Taylor and the elephant in the room.
Dave Taylor's 61st birthday last Friday, became cause for celebration at the OFF THE WALL news headquarters in Bridgeport, Minnesota.  Taylor, who tried to keep his "day" hidden from the news, was surprised when a four ton elephant with "Happy 61st Dave" written on its forehead came high stepping into the boardroom.

Taylor looked around the table and asked if anyone else could see the elephant in the room and received blank stares. The pachyderm then smeared frosting on Taylor's cheek with its long trunk and the room errupted with laughter.  The next hour was filled with uncontrolled laughter, as reporters related their favorite OFF THE WALL news story from the past eight years. At the end of the day, the huge birthday pachyderm was crated and sent to an elephant sancturary in Afica, where it could celebrate all its remaining birthdays amonst fellow elephants.

The staff was given the rest of the day off and Taylor went back to work, scouring the wire for worthy news stories.  Taylor would like to thank readers for their birthday wishes and promises continued reporting of news not reported elswhere.
