Happy birthday, Betty White!

Happy birthday to someone literally everyone in the world loves, Betty White!

Everyone's favorite television icon is celebrating her 93rd birthday today. From The Mary Tyler Moore Show to The Golden Girls to Hot In Cleveland to Off Their Rockers, Betty White has captured the hearts of four generations, and with good reason: She can play promiscuous (she was almost cast as Blanche Devereaux!), do the "dumb blonde" thing ("Back in St. Olaf ...") and be the sassiest smartass around (everything else she does). Whether she's slaying beer pong, advocating pet adoption, chowing down on hot dogs (her favorite!) or fanning herself over Jason Momoa (girl, we understand!), there is seriously no way to not love Betty White.

Here are just a few of the many, many, many reasons why we adore her. Have a toast to America's Golden Girl (and Captain America's Golden Girl). Thank you, Betty White, for being a friend.
