On Saturday, LeVar Burton celebrated a birthday....


From Wikipedia:

Burton is known for portraying the young Kunta Kinte in the 1977 award-winning ABC television miniseries 'Roots', based on the novel by Alex Haley. He is also well known for his role as Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge in 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' as well as the co-creator and host of the PBS children's program 'Reading Rainbow'.

"I told Pierce a thousand times, I never wanted to meet LeVar in person!
I just wanted a picture. You can't disappoint a picture!
I hate you, Pierce!"

Leonard Hofstadter:
You're having people over

Sheldon Cooper:
Yes. Must be killing you wondering who.
Fine, I'll tell you:
Stuart from the comic book store, Barry Kripke from the university,
Penny's ex-boyfriend Zack, and TV's LeVar Burton. 

Leonard Hofstadter:
Really? LeVar Burton's coming over

Sheldon Cooper:
Possible. I tweeted him. 

Sheldon's guests are singing karaoke. All have been drinking, and Stuart is still in towels from taking a shower 

Stuart, Kripke, Zack:
I'm walking on sunshine... who-oo... 

LeVar Burton arrives at party late, and enters

LeVar Burton:
Hello, I... 
Sees strange guests and backs out of doorway

LeVar Burton:
Oh, I don't think so... 

Quickly walks down stairs

LeVar Burton:
I am so done with Twitter.

So here's a belated Happy Birthday!
