HAPPY BIRTHDAY HOUDINI!

Today is Houdini's 142nd birthday. The great escapist was born on March 24, 1874 in Budapest, Hungary to Mayer Samuel and Cecilia Steiner Weiss. As I do each year, I will gather a collection of birthday greetings from around the web and link them all below. So send me your link if you have one. Also check out Twitter #Houdini for many more birthday wishes.

Because today everyone is wild about Harry!

"Go easy, boys, it's my birthday."

  1. A great photo and a textbook example of correct arm placements inside a straitjacket. There is no Straitjacket Fail here!

    I think it's safe to say that if Whitehead had not punched HH, he still would not have made it to 2016!
