Birthday Wishes

Birthday Wishes: Sharing a laugh in a  birthday card is a great way to personalize a card for someone you know well. Wisecracks about getting older, jokes about over-indulging, gags about gifts (or the lack thereof)—all are good possibilities for funny messages.Examples

  • “Happy birthday to my favorite former punk rocker!” (Or: hippie, goth, Valley Girl, grunge rocker)
  • “From one of your favorite bad influences” (Added after the card’s printed “Happy Birthday”)
  • “Hope it’s happier than me at a shoe sale!” (or: spa, bar, coffee shop, beach.)
  • “You get to be the center of attention today! Tomorrow it’s back to me.
  • “Have a martini for me! Or two!” (Or: substitute recipient’s favorite drink.)
  • “I think this is the year you get a pony! JK That’s never.”
  • “Happy birthday to you and your cat! (I know how the cat hates to be left out.)”
  • “May the cake calories go straight to your boobs!”
  • “To quote Shakespeare: ‘Party thine ass off!’”
  • “Dibs on the presents you don’t like!”
  • “You totally don’t look like crap at all!”
  • “I hope all your wishes come true, even the weird ones.”
  • “Sorry there’s no money in here.”
  • “Please stop aging so gracefully. It’s getting kind of boring and predictable.”
  • “Have a great day, you old geezer! (Takes one to know one, right?)”
