Betty White turned 96 years old today, and everyone's favorite Merc With a Mouth Deadpool is wishing her a happy birthday in a new image.
Shared by the official Deadpool Twitter account, the images shows Wade Wilson lounging on the floor beside a photo of Betty White eating a hot dog. Holding a martini glass and a hot dog himself, Deadpool salutes the Golden Girl with the message, "Happy Birthday to the one and only @BettyMWhite. Cheers to another year of ‘Tinis and Weenies!" Emojis of a martini glass and hot dog complete the message, showing Deadpool to be hip to how all the cool kids are using social media.
Deadpool has long been a fan of the Golden Girls, beginning with his massive crush on the late Bea Arthur. The mercenary-turned-movie star celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Golden Girls, and was also lucky enough to have White herself review his first solo film. After being showered with birthday wishes, perhaps White will return the favor with some Deadpool 2 promotion down the line.
Directed by David Leitch, Deadpool 2 features Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Stefan Kapičić as the voice of Colossus, and Karan Soni as Dopinder, with newcomers Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Cable, Julian Dennison in an unknown role, and Jack Kesy as a villain widely thought to be Black Tom Cassidy. The film hits theaters on May 18.
