By the time you're [insert age] you've learned everything - you only have to remember it! Many happy returns on your birthday.

YOU SUCK!
...at aging. Can you at least try to look older?


Funny birthday one-liners

Don't let aging get you down. It's too hard to get up again!

You are so old, you walked into an antique shop and they sold you.

You know you're getting old when you can't walk past a bathroom without thinking, "I may as well pee while I'm here."

You know you're old when you turn down the lights to be economical instead of romantic.

Q: What goes up and never comes down?
A: Your age!

Middle Age Birthday Wishes

Middle age: that time when you finally get your head together - then your body starts falling apart.

Middle age is when your age starts to show around your middle.

Middle age... when "happy hour" is a nap!

Night sweats and hot flashes are nature's way of lowering your heating bill so you can save more money for your retirement.

How do you know you've hit middle-age? In preparation for a big sneeze you cross your legs really hard and hope for the best!


Funny birthday messages about gray hair

Those aren't gray hairs you see. They're strands of birthday glitter growing out of your head.

A little gray hair is a small price to pay for so much wisdom.

You know you're getting old when the little old gray-haired lady you helped across the street is your wife.

Don't worry, they are not gray hairs, they are wisdom highlights. You just happen to be extremely wise.

If gray hair is a sign of wisdom, then you're a genius!


More Funny Birthday Messages

A wise man once said, "Forget about your past, you cannot change it". I'd like to add: "Forget about your present, I didn't get you one".

I spent 3 hours searching the internet for the perfect birthday message for you and then I gave up. Happy Birthday.

I wanted to get you something truly amazing and inspiring for your birthday and then I remembered that you already have me.
