What are some good lines or jokes to write in a birthday card?

Asked by brettvdb (1192points) February 10th, 2010

I am writing a quick birthday note for a friend of mine who is turning 71. Does anyone have any suggestions of nice lines or appropriate jokes I can use? I am trying to stay away from comments about age.

Front: I bought you a card for your birthday!

Middle: Here’s the middle!

Back: And here’s the back!

And another,

Front: Congratulations on your new car!!!

Middle: The proprietors of Cards Ltd TM apologize for the spelling mistake on the front of this card. In compensation, here is your missing letter: “D”.

Birthdays are like dogs. Once you have a few, they start running together.

I can direct you to some great ideas, but remember they are copyrighted and must be credited, my friend Ashleigh Brilliant has some great one liners.

Here’s a few I recall……. :-/

1. Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.

2. A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip.

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

4. Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.

Hope these help!! :-/
