Happy Birthday, B.J.!

B.J. Novak

Without B.J. Novak, there would be no Cadbury egg controversy, no Kool-Aid man, no Five Families, and no d-bag performance of the year.

Most importantly, there would be no OfficeTally.

Happy Birthday to the hottest Beardy we know,
B.J. Novak!


  1. Happy Birthday, B.J.! Hope you have fun! But only after you finish writing an awesomely hilarious episode for season 5.

  2. BJ, you are great. So funny, and a pretty awesome writer also!
    Happy Birthday!

  3. Happy Birthday, B.J.! Make sure no one combines the birthdays on this day. Go out an make it a great one.

  4. To the man that brought us Diversity Day! If I could, I would throw you a party in pink – Kelly Kapoor style, o’course!

  5. Happy Birthday, B.J.!
    Without you, not only would we not have THE best show on television, we wouldn’t have this wonderful community here.
    You rock! You’re so hot…and you’re so…hot…

  6. Happy 29th, B.J.! Hope it’s the best one yet!

    P.S. You are exactly 4 days younger than me!

    P.P.S. Thanks for getting me addicted to The Office by writing Diversity Day. I still say it’s one of the most brilliant episodes of television ever written.

  7. “the hottest beardy”…. Tanster you have such a way with words :)

    Happy Birthday BJ!!!

  8. Happy Birthday, Beardy! Thank you for writing some of my favorite episodes and thanks for being so nice to us when we meet you!

    I hope you have a great year!

  9. Happy birthday BJ! I thoroughly enjoyed Ryan’s transformation to douchitude this season, complete with beard. Keep writing terrific episodes as you always do!

  10. Have a great birthday! Thank you so much for all brilliant moments you have brought us!

  11. Have a great birthday, BJ! Though I definitely agree that you’re the hottest Beardy we know, I do hope this next season will be a “beard-free” one for you!

  12. Hopefully you write more episodes this year!
    Happy birthday, B.J.

    [32.. you beat me to that haha.]

  13. First time I kinda liked that beard is that pic. Nice choice, tanster.

    Happy b-day, BJ!

    (I rhymed.)

  14. Happy birthday, B.J.! Ryan is one of my favorite characters, mainly because he starts off so quiet, and then explodes into a massive jerk. And I love Kelly and Ryan.

  15. Oh wow!!! I had absolutely NO idea I shared a birthday with BJ!! lol I knew J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter, and I were birthday mates…but BJ…welcome aboard buddy!!! Happy 29th to you and Happy 17th to me!!! lol

  16. Happy Bday to the guy with the best lines ever on the show! Ryan is my all time fav character!

  17. Happy birthday to Mr. Wonderful BJ Novak, who writes amazingly great episodes, does the best DVD commentary, and has the character of Ryan perfected to a T! I saw his stand up show in Seattle with the incomparable Dan Mintz and it was pure awesomeness.

    PS:(I just saw that Mindy Kaling is scheduled to be on Letterman tonight–maybe she will do a happy birthday shout out to BJ, too!)

  18. oooh look at that smoldering look
    happy birthday man- do what you want
    now get back to work on making season 5 the best ever!

  19. Happy b-day, BJ. Better blow out those birthday candles before they start a… fire.

    I know, cheesy.

  20. A little birthday advice: that particular expression isn’t going to make you any friends in prison.
