Two Men 80

What unites Michael Caine and Quincy Jones? Apart from the possibility that they were both involved in the same movie in one capacity or another, which is a pretty good bet given that they have each had a hand in about a thousand films, they both turn 80 today. Also, Quincy Jones' middle name is Delight, which I don't think I ever knew before but now will never forget. Michael Caine, who was born Maurice Joseph Micklewhite, should change his middle name to Delight, both because it would cement the bond and also because Michael Delight Caine sounds awesome. Anyway, best wishes to both, etc.

"…because Michael Delight Caine sounds awesome." And because Maurice Delight Micklewhite sounds even awesomer.

Seems like the place to throw this out there.

Now can we get Steve Coogan to do a Quincy Jones impression?

@Astigmatism ALMOST a jinx.
