Dick Van Dyke, the actor who overcame having a tragic last name to becoming one of the world’s best loved stars, was born today, December 13. I can definitely relate to getting teased by simpletons who think they are telling you a joke you haven’t already heard before with having the last name I have. I’ve met Dick Van Dyke on many occasions and he’s always a super nice guy. Hope he has a great day today and we wish him many happy returns.
