Happy Birthday Alexander Graham Bell, here’s American Idol!

Adam Lambert, Satisfaction

Were he not seized by the cold hand of death, Alexander Graham Bell – the man behind phones, texting, and, of course, Snake – would be turning 162 today. That would make him not only the cleverest man on the planet, but also the oldest. And by some margin. So, we thought we should buy him a gift. But what to buy such a kindly old wizard. It boiled down to a toss up between a packet of Fruit Gums, or a clip of the startling young vocalist who will surely be crowned American Idol before too long. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday Bell!
