White House Wishes Baby Boy A Happy 101st Birthday

The White House apparently thinks an infant from Utah is 101 years old. The Shosted family requests personalized greetings for each of their children after birth. And the first three times it went off without a hitch. But when mom and dad opened Benjamin's letter, they were surprised to find it wished their son a happy 101st birthday.

Benjamin is their youngest child and his first birthday is a few days away. The letter, printed on White House letterhead, spoke eloquently of Benjamin's place in history, calling him an "integral part of the American narrative." For all the confusion, the family was sanguine, wondering whether another—much older—Benjamin Shosted might have received a letter applauding his birth or, perhaps, whether their son is actually Benjamin Button come to life.
