Adam West is celebrating his 86th birthday today, and while he’s done many great things in his career (most notably, he was the original Batman!), our generation most likely knows him best as the mayor of Quahog on Family Guy. In that role, he has proven time and time again to be one of the greatest leaders of our time. So, on Mr. West’s birthday, let’s look at all the reasons why he’s exactly the kind of man we need in charge.
He’s a responsible pet owner.
If you step into his yard, there’s only one way you’re leaving: in a body bag, from dog injuries. Hey, at least he’s giving everyone a fair warning.
He adjusts to change quite well.
The dude realizes he’s a tomato, and he just takes it stride.
He tells people what they need to hear.
Who cares if his answers don’t actually make any sense, or contain any real information? He puts the public at ease, and sometimes, that’s what we need the most.
He has a real passion for the arts.
Hey, there’s nothing wrong with doing lite-brite well into your 70s. And you know what, maybe his name really is Adam We (again, he adjusts to change quite well). Nobody messes with Adam We.
