Funny 80th Birthday Wishes For Mom

  1. Dear Mom, the Bank of Dad has closed and is not answering my calls. I heard that the Bank of Mom opened a new branch, though. There are no credit checks, and you get a 0% interest overdraft for life! Say hello to your new favorite customer!
  2. Dear Mother, I wish I could have spent more on your birthday gift, but the cost of buying 80 candles for your birthday cake has really eaten into my budget.
  3. Apparently, 80 is the new 40. You know what that means!… Time to update your resume and get you back into the working world for another 25 years before you hit retirement age again!
  4. I have always wondered why our elders get the kids to help blow the birthday candles out. At first, I thought you were just being nice, but now I realize it’s all a ploy to avoid taking out your false teeth. Glad to see you’ve started to delegate the more menial tasks to the younger generation to save yourself some trouble!
  5. To my marvelous mother, the most amazing person this world has ever known. Wishing you a very happy 80th birthday! If you keep this up for another 20 years, Mom, you’ll receive a letter from the King on your 100th Birthday. 
  6. Unlimited days off, playtime with grandkids, random naps at any time, and not having to do anything because people don’t expect you to – I never realized that turning 80 had so many perks!
  7. They say age is just a number, but my limited mobility, forgetfulness, and list of daily medications tell a very different story!
  8. Being retired and unemployed are practically the same if you think about it. The only difference is that the former actually get paid for doing nothing.
  9. Legend has it that those who celebrate their birthdays live longer. So let’s ditch the calendar and celebrate your Birthday every week. In 52 weeks from now, you’ll be the only person in the world who’s reached 132 years of age! How’s that for a proud moment?!
  10. Wonderful wishes to you on your 80th Birthday, Mom! Hope your special day is filled with lots of memorable moments and bags of laughter…not too much laughter, though; we don’t want your false teeth to fall out again!
  12. Happy Birthday, Mom…(10-second pause)…Hey Mom, I said Happy Birthday…(another 10-second pause)…HAPPY 80TH, BIR…by this point, I had to remind you three times that it was your Birthday, and by the 4th time, you were fast asleep!.
  13. Happy 80th to my magnificent Mom! Some people believe the older we get, the stranger we become. Let me give you the perfect example of this. You’re always telling me how worried you are about catching nasty viruses, so you stay away from people in case you catch something. But hey, here you are, letting your grandkids spray their germs all over your birthday cake because they wanted to blow out the candles? Kinda defeats the object, no? Just saying.

80th Birthday Wishes For Mom From Son

  1. Happy 80th Birthday, Mom! Dad and I were thinking about giving you some birthday bumps. Still, by the time we’re done, Dad would have put out his back, you would probably need a new hip, and I would have to quit my job to become a full-time carer for both of my parents. So instead, I bought you this card as the only injury you risk from receiving this is a paper cut. Wishing you many years of good health, love, and great humor from your loving son!
