On Tuesday night's respective editions of CBS' The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, each host pegged a bit to Romney's birthday celebration, which consisted of a cake made of Twinkies delivered to his Senate office.

"Look at that", he said in video posted to Twitter.

The internet is talking about the very polite, very particular way that Romney blows out his birthday candles.

Actually, wrote a third, "Anyone well-actuallying in Romney threads about the hazards of blowing out birthday candles in a conventional manner is a cop, sorry". While most people bend over their cakes and blow the candles out in one big breath, Romney takes a different approach.

Romney displays an unusual technique to blowing out the candles.

The video: In the video, Romney is seen smiling and laughing over the cake, saying, "Oh my goodness, what I've always wanted!" Instead of blowing out all of them as once, as is tradition with every human being alive, he plucked each individual candle from its Twinkie host and blew it out, meticulously savoring each wish with the intensity of a guy who has bodies hidden under his floorboards.
