Am I the only one who finds Photoshopping pictures of Gedolim like that to be nauseating?

My source was that I heard such a shmu'ah.  But I just asked his elderly SIL (RMDT), and he said that he never heard of such a thing.  He did say that on Reb Moshe's birthday the children and grandchildren would all call up to give and receive brochos.  So I stand corrected.
There is a well known story which according to this may be  a bubbe meise that a bais yaakov teacher was teaching the class that only goyim celebrate birthdays and she gave them the whole shpiel about paroh.  One of the girls raised her hand and said but my zayde sends me a birthday card every year. The teacher said I am sure he means to do something nice, he just doesn't know better.  The girl responded and said but my zayde is rav Moshe Feinstein.

I'd maybe believe this story if it was the first day of class, and even then it's hard to believe. The teacher didn't know she had R' Moshe's granddaughter in her class?

Why should she know, if she had a different name. And suppose it was a great-granddaughter.

We finished Selichos already.

Besides for Tzom Gedalya when we cut off the beginning and end and stick it into the middle of Tachnun.
