Starting the festivities for her upcoming milestone a bit early, DeGeneres called on the denizens of Twitter to "rate the 60 year olds in your life."

I can’t believe I’m going to be 60 this week! I love rating your babies but this week I want to rate the 60 year ol… https://t.co/jGi1a3HjdR

People responded to the call to action, posting several photos of their favorite sexagenarians, but folks were puzzled by one thing: Could it really be true that Ellen was turning 60?!
