Living legend Betty White turned 96 Wednesday, and one of her biggest fans is marking the occasion.

The official Deadpool Twitter account shared an image of the Marvel antihero (Ryan Reynolds) holding a martini and a hotdog, while looking at a photo of White as she eats a hot dog.

"Happy Birthday to the one and only @BettyMWhite. Cheers to another year of ‘Tinis and Weenies!" the photo was captioned.

It's long been established that Deadpool is a fan of Golden Girls, White's NBC sitcom that ran from 1985 to '92. Reynolds celebrated Golden Girls' 30th anniversary back in 2015 with a special tweet, and in 2016's Deadpool, the character's katanas are named Bea and Arthur after late Golden Girls star Bea Arthur.

The feeling of admiration is mutual, as White gave the first Deadpool high marks in her NSFW review (see below).
