Joke about their age

Poke some fun at how old they are with these cheeky greetings.

  • Remember to start taking daily multivitamins and fiber supplements, you old fogey!
  • Inside every old person is a young person wondering what happened.
  • Don’t forget to wear your birthday suit. But make sure you check it for wrinkles first!
  • Even with your ripe old age, you’re still the best friend someone could ask for. I’ll get the prune juice ready though.
  • Welcome to 40, everything hurts here!
  • Another year older and you’re one step closer to getting those Velcro shoes!
  • As you get older, three things happen. The first thing is your memory goes, and I can’t remember the other two.
  • If anyone calls you old, hit them with your cane and throw your teeth at them.
  • Happy birthday! Party hard, but not too hard – I hear hangovers get worse with age.
