Everyone is delighted by the absurdly large bouquet of flowers John Kerry got for his birthday.

U.S. State Department

The U.S. secretary of state turns 72 today. And what better way to celebrate than with a large group of fellow world officials in Paris. To mark the occasion, India’s environmental minister Shri Prakash Javadekar apparently raided the Tuileries Garden and presented Kerry with a bouquet of flowers that rivals Kerry’s own 6’4” frame.

Happy Birthday, John! Good luck finding a vase to fit that arrangement!!
