Funny Birthday Wishes: 60 Different Ways to Say Happy Birthday

Do you want to wish someone a happy birthday, but don’t want to sound too sappy? There can be funny ways you can congratulate a friend on this special day. Here’s a list of funny birthday wishes you can use:

One of your closest friends has a birthday coming up. You’re not one of those people who will write a sappy letter or an emotional card, but you do want to make it special and unforgettable. It can be done if you exchange the heartfelt messages with some funny, sarcastic and ‘’offensive’’ ones.

Birthday wishes for an ‘’old’’ friend


The way we communicate with our closest friends might sound weird to other people. But, they know you well enough to understand that your sarcasm and jokes are filled with love, and they are ready to give it back. We all have that one friend who is obsessed with age, so let’s show some love to our ‘’old’’ friends.

1. You’re birthday reminds me of the old Chinese scholar… Yung No Mo

2. As you get older three things happen. The first is your memory goes, and I can’t remember the other two.

3. Like a fine wine we get better with age… or rather, we feel better about our age with lots of wine. Happy birthday.

4. I made you a birthday cake to celebrate, but I couldn’t light the candles. It turns out the fire department requires a permit for bonfires.

5. Looking fifty is great – if you’re sixty.

6. Just think now you’re one step closer to the senior citizen discount at the movies.

7. You are getting old and I’m getting drunk. Happy Birthday!

8. Happy birthday, old friend! When I say ‘’old’’ I mean I have known you a long time… but you are also just old… and a friend.

9. Allow me to politely suggest this be the year you start lying about your age.

Don’t think of it as getting older; think of it as becoming a classic

11. You have reached the age where all compliments will be followed by “for your age.”


12. If all grandmas looked as good as you, nobody would care if they baked cookies.

13. Have a great time on your birthday and don’t worry about getting old. That happened years ago.
14. Don’t worry! I have been 29 since I was 29.

15. Do you know why old men wear black socks with sandals? You’re one year closer to finding out. Happy Birthday.

16. I can’t believe you’re 50.,  I mean, I can’t believe you’re only 50 (I thought you were way older than that.).

17. I’m not going to make any age related jokes because I genuinely feel bad about how old you are.
18. It sure was easier remembering your age when you were 29 every year.

19. I have one word to describe you -“Vintage” Happy birthday!

25. Without birthdays we wouldn’t know how much makeup to put on in the morning.

26. May you live to be so old that your driving terrifies other people.

In this case they are already old, and there is no way to go back. But you still want to make a joke relating to that, and tell them that age doesn’t matter.

Everything will be just fine…

Of course, you might be getting old too, so it’s time to say: never mind, everything will be just fine in a funny way:

‘’I didn’t get you any presents’’ wishes

Your friends already have a priceless gift – You! A crazy, funny, and an extraordinary friend who can make them laugh every day! Who needs presents then? Of course, you bought your best friend a birthday present, but you have to make them think that you forgot to do it. Here are some ideas for the card:

43. Forget about the past, you can’t change it. Forget about the future, you can’t predict it. Also, forget about the present, I didn’t get you one.

44. Actually, I wanted to get you something super great, super terrific, unique and beautiful for your birthday, but I don’t fit into the envelope.

45. You deserve so much more than just a card. And that’s why I also got you that green envelope. I hope you didn’t rip it! Happy birthday!
