Funny happy birthday messages.

A birthday is a day that should be full of joy, so laughter is heavily encouraged. Keep your friend’s sense of humour in mind as you compose your fun-filled greeting.

Best friend, we’ve been through it all. We’ve celebrated birthdays together from our nappy days as kids and I look forward to our nappy days as adults. Let’s live it up while we’re young.

Like a fine wine, we get better with age. Or maybe we just feel better about our age with a little bit of wine.

Your birthday is a painful reminder of how old I’m getting. At least we’re in it together.

Happy birthday to someone who is smart, talented, pretty, creative and fabulous. I love that we’re so much alike.

It is scientifically proven that people who have more birthdays live longer. Congrats on your success.

At least you’re not as old as you will be next year. Happy birthday.

Here’s to hoping all your candles this year don’t set off the fire alarm. Your birthday is gonna be lit.

If things really do get better with age, then you’re nearing perfection. I bet it feels as good as it looks. Happy birthday.

For your birthday, how about a fruit salad instead of cake? A fruit salad with mostly grapes - no, all grapes. Fermented grapes. Wine it is.

I can barely keep up with everyone’s birthdays these days, but you better believe I’d never forget yours. Happy birthday to the best friend there is.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, the best friend in the world was born. Happy birthday.

Another birthday, another year older. Don’t you think it’s about time we started to act our age? Well, I know exactly what you’ll say. Next year. Happy birthday.

You’re not old. You’re just old enough to know better but not old enough to care. Happy birthday.

Another year to prove that older doesn’t really mean wiser. Happy birthday.

When I say, ‘have a happy birthday’, you better freaking do it.
