Happy Bacardi Show Birthday greetings today to everybody's favorite TV wiccan, Alyson Hannigan aka Willow on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Also sharing her birthday is none other than Mr. R. Lee Ermey, an ex-Marine drill instructor who parlayed a memorable turn as a- that's right, you guessed it- Marine drill instructor in Stanely Kubrick's half-brilliant Full Metal Jacket into an acting career that thrives in spite of his utter inability to act. You can see him in the recent remake of Willard with Crispin Glover. The first 45 minutes of FMJ are absolutely hilarious, and the biggest reason for that is Ermey's Gunnery Sgt. Hartman. The picture above is from the jelly donut scene. "Chow is forbidden in the barracks, Private Pyle!"
