Some funny birthday wishes include, "Thanks to all who posted birthday wishes on my Facebook page and made me look more popular than I really am," and "However old you are is the new 30." Other humorous wishes include, "May you live to be so old that your driving terrifies people," and "Happy birthday to someone I hope is my friend even when we're too senile to remember birthdays."
In addition to traditional greeting cards, funny birthday wishes are available to send from online sources such as eCards. Some greeting card companies even offer printable birthday cards. Funny music, animation and other graphics can be added to customize cards according to the recipient's likes and sense of humor. Some popular styles include "young at heart" and "over the hill."
A funny greeting that features an animal video or light-hearted song may avoid offending an acquaintance whose sense of humor may be unknown. Dogs and cats playing piano, cats and frogs wearing glasses, and animated elephants distributing hugs are some eCard options. ECards can be sent via email as well as social networking websites. More tongue-in-cheek options, such as singing nuns and alcohol jokes, are available for people with closer relationships.
