WCCO) When a young St. Paul boy got to pick the theme for his third birthday party, he didn't pick Nemo or the Wiggles or Dora the Explorer. He didn't even pick his favorite sports team.
Henry Schally picked "The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer".
His mother, Jennifer Schally, designed party hats complete with pictures of the PBS news program's regular contributors.
"I think most kids get their favorite show for their birthday party theme," Jennifer Schally said.
Henry's father, Troy Schally, explained he and his wife have watched the show during dinner since their son was an infant. He believes the show's distinctive theme caught his son's attention.
"I don't know if it's a fluke this year and he'll be into something next year or if it's a sign of things to come and he wants to go into broadcast journalism, who knows?" Troy Schally said.
The party was over Memorial Day weekend, and the Schallys made all their guests wear the hats Jennifer Schally designed. They got a cake with the photo of the show's correspondents and Jennifer Schally arranged for Jim Lehrer to send an autographed photo for a birthday present.
It read, "To my youngest fan" and was signed, "Jimmy Jimmy BoBo", which is the nickname Henry gave Lehrer.
Jimmy Jimmy BoBo?? Now that's a good one.
Moonbat from day one. This kid doesn't stand a chance.
I think KAR would have fun with this one.
