One of the best times to make people laugh at themselves is their birthday. Any age is fodder for humor. A poem with a simple joke or witty turn of phrase is enough to amuse anyone. But pick a memorable verse — a birthday is, after all, a special day in somebody's life.
Choose a poem below that best brings out your sense of humor in your message. Important: go the serious route if the birthday boy or girl can’t take a joke.
Happy birthday to you.
You live in a zoo.
You look like a monkey.
And you smell like one too.
Even though this message comes to you a little late, the wish it brings for happiness is good on any date.
Happy belated birthday.
I picked it myself, the choice was clear.
Once you see it, I’m expecting a cheer!
I know you will need them, on your many adventures.
Inside the box is a new set of dentures!
Happy birthday, old fart!
Today is your birthday.
Don’t pull your hair.
Look in the mirror — nature was fair.
Not a day over twenty.
I’m kidding! You’re plenty.
Don’t mean to burst your bubble, but stop asking for trouble.
You know what I mean, when you drink that caffeine.
What should I bring?
Just give me a ring.
Elephant or clown?
I knew you would frown.
Today I turned fifty.
I feel really good.
My body’s still working quite well, thanks. (Touch wood).
My hair’s not too grey, my wrinkles are few, I can still touch my toes with my knuckles. (Can you?)
I’m quite full of vigour, just getting ripe. (But they now print the phone book in much smaller type.)
My hearing’s still good.
What’s that you say?
Speak clearly, don’t mumble, your voice wafts away.
Inside this old body I’m still young, but then if life starts at forty, I’m really just ten.
Just because you're 50,
don't despair, oh no.
Overnight, you won't discover you've lost your get up and go.
Nor will you become all wrinkled, nor ache from head to toe.
So even though you're ripening, don't regard it as a blow, you won't suddenly look decrepit....
...because that happened long ago!
A birthday belated, I know you have waited.
Has it been another year?
My apologies are sincere.
When I realized I forgot, my old stomach formed a knot.
Our adventures came to mind, and your deeds that are so kind.
Hope you had the greatest time, entertained by a funny mime.
A belated birthday wish with the most delicious dish.
God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.
