It is not the Richer way to half ass anything - particularly on birthday salutations. So when I called my sister at 9:30AM EST (3:30AM Hawaii time) to sing her happy birthday ... we got the whole newsroom involved. Given her sleep interruption she was not impressed.
But when I went on to sing the second and third verse of the Richer Happy Birthday tune, I was surprised to find the version used on the masses actually has a copyright . Hmmm. Good thing us Richers went Vanilla Ice on Mildred Hill and dropped our own version back in the day.
Take that USPTO! (United States Paton and Trademark Office).
