All humor makes life more enjoyable!

Birthday humor, just like all humor, is priceless. It doesn't need to be limited to funny jokes. It is all around us - if we look for it.

Humor is designed to amuse the listener.  It should produce spontaneous laughter.

Of course, there are individuals who are just funny. They can make us laugh and they know it. These people are popular because they are able to see the humor in almost anything.

Birthday humor should always be kind as age is not something that we can control. I can remember a neighbor lady telling me that I would understand something better when I was older. At the time, I was a very mature 14 year old. Although I said nothing in response, my immediate thought was: "If I'm too young to understand something, maybe you're too old to understand."

The following stories and jokes about birthday humor are not new. They have all been around for years. Many are known to have a slightly different version.

An 80 year old man goes to the doctor with his wife. After the exam, the physician pulls the wife aside, and says, “I'm afraid your husband has an advanced stress disorder."

"Please do exactly as I tell you, otherwise he’ll die very soon. Always be sweet and pleasant. Each morning, fix his favorite breakfast. Prepare delicious, healthy lunches, suppers, and snacks. Encourage him to nap whenever he wants, and don't let him do any chores. Under no circumstances should you nag him about anything. Give him regular massages, and make love at least twice a week. Keep this up for a year, and he'll return to a state of near-perfect health for his age.”

Later in the car, the husband asked his wife what the doctor told her.
She replied, “Honey, he said you’re going to die soon.”

He called her and she instructed him as follows: "Park in front of the building and come to the main door. You'll see a big panel on the right. With your elbow, push button 115. I'll hit the buzzer and I'll let you in. Walk inside and turn right for the elevator. Get in, and with your elbow press number 115. Walk out of the elevator and turn left. Come down the hall to 115 and ring my doorbell with your elbow."

he says. "That's easy enough, but why the heck am I pushing all these buttons with my elbow?"

she replies. "You're coming empty handed?"


An 80 year old woman who was an avid golfer, decided to move to Florida and join a country club. The female assistant pro offered to play with her. The older woman said, "I've been playing great lately. I just have a heck of a time getting out of sand traps."

When they came to the par four 18th hole, the older lady hit a great drive, but her second shot landed in a steep-sided bunker next to the green. Playing from the sand, she lofted a high, soft shot. It came down a few feet from the cup and rolled in for a birdie.

The 80 year old was still standing in the trap when the pro walked over and said, "Beautiful shot! I thought you said you had a problem getting out of traps?"
"I really do,” 
the 80 year old replied. “Would you mind giving me a hand?"

His employees replied again, "No."

His workers responded, "A puppy."


It's a hot day--there's a traveling salesman passing through a small town in Texas when he sees a little old man sitting in a rocking chair on the porch of a house.  So he stops and says to the little old man, "You look as if you don't have a care in the world!  What's your formula for a long and happy life?"
And the little old man says, "Well, I smoke six packs of cigarettes a day, I drink a quart of bourbon every four hours and six cases of beer a week.  I never wash and I go out every night; I don't get to bed until four in the morning."
And the guy says, "Wow, that's just great.  How old are you?"
And the little man says, "Twenty-two."


It's my wife's birthday tomorrow. Last week I asked her what she wanted as a present. "Oh, I don't know ," she said . "Just give me something with diamonds." That's why I'm giving her a pack of playing cards. 


A couple had been debating the purchase of a new auto for weeks. He wanted a new truck. She wanted a fast little sports car so she could zip through traffic around town. He would probably have settled on any beat up old truck, but everything she seemed to like was way out of their price range.

"Look!" she said. "I want something that goes from 0 to 200 in 4 seconds or less. And my birthday is coming up. You could surprise me." So, for her birthday, he bought her a brand new bathroom scale.
