Humorous birthday toasts and funny sayings give us a chance to laugh at the trials and tribulations of growing older.  Afterall, advancing birthdays are much better than the alternative. 

If there's a significant birthday in your
future  -- a birthday that ends with a
zero or a five --  celebrate with guests and offer a funny birthday toast. Remember what Marie Antoinette said:

"Let them eat cake"

There are hundreds of humorous birthday toasts. You've no doubt heard some of these funny birthday sayings:

  • Lordy Lordy -- Look who's 40
  • Isn't it nifty--Fred is 50.

  • To 60 years and Social Security
    Guess it's time to show some maturity.

  • 70 years and he's going strong
    He's still a hunk. . . but not for long.

If your birthday party guests have a good sense of humor, you might want to pull out these adaptations below of popular birthday sayings and stories or check out this collection of baby boomer humor:

Humorous birthday toasts and sayings

You're over the hill when your back goes out more than you do.
    --Anonymous

    Age is strictly a case of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.          -- Jack Benny

You know you're getting old when you bend down to tie your shoelaces and then think about what else you might do while you're down there.
--George Burns

The generation gap is one war in which everybody eventually changes sides.
    -- Cyril Connolly

Dr. Seuss on the golden age (slightly modified from an earlier version)

The golden years have come at last,
Why don't I feel this is a blast?

I cannot see, I cannot pee.
I cannot chew. What can I do?

My memory shrinks. My hearing stinks.
No sense of smell..I look like hell.

My body's drooping, got trouble pooping.
And people ask, "Why am I stooping?"

The golden years have come at last.
The golden years can kiss my ass.


Senior life on the highway 

As a senior citizen was driving down the freeway, his cell phone rang. Answering, he heard his wife's voice urgently warning him,
"Herman, I just heard on the news that there's a car going the wrong way on 280. Please be careful."

"Hell," said Herman, "It's not just one car.
It's hundreds of them!"
