Today is a good day to behave in the manner of that person. (as Wheaton himself nearly did)

That person is good for this day.

Because of that person, this day is good.

How would you render "Today is a good day to be That Guy"?

On the model of "Today is a good day to die, it would be {loDvetlh X-meH QaQ jajvam}, but there is no verb X meaning "to be".

Also, can anyone think of a way to get across the idea of "That Guy" better than just {loDvetlh}?
