Jump in, the water’s warm! This cartoon character who looks like she’s about to go swimming turns 34 today. She doesn’t look a day over this week’s weave. PopWatch grapples daily with its mixed feelings towards Tyra — a struggle best outlined in typical birthday-haiku form:

Yo Ty Ty, what up?
You are a fool enormé
Why don’t we hate you? apparently agrees with us on this pressing matter. Like a Buzzy Beetle from Super Mario Bros., Tyra Banks is difficult to defeat and/or avoid. But the pixelated landscape we call television just wouldn’t be the same without her.

Okay everyone, now go have some ice cream! WE’RE GOING TO TY-LAND!
