Here's a Bacardi Show Birthday Greeting for that huckster par excellence, the original Funky Flashman: STAN LEE, who turns 84 today.

Hard to name a favorite Lee-scripted comic- and I do believe he scripted, that is to say dialogued as well as (mostly) co-plotted, most of those long-ago seminal 60's Marvel comics. But the one that keeps coming back to me as the one that I was most entertained by was Amazing Spider-Man #16, in which Spidey and Daredevil teamed up to battle the Ringmaster and his Circus of Crime, and the snappy dialogue just flowed fast and furious- amusing 4-year-old me a great deal, and in subsequent years as well.
