Get a birthday card laugh from this one that revolves around the theme of "What's good about aging?" (Of course there is nothing good about aging that I can see and that's what makes it funny.)
And, of course, based on the theme, I would use it for older people. They already know that "The Golden Years" are more about rust than shiny metal!
I used to get tired of hearing old people talk about their aches and pains and operations. Now I do that with my friends!
Anyway, add the following verse to a blank card for a "yuk"..
One of the good things about getting older is [ ]you are released first in a hostage situation [ ]you don't have to run into a burning building [ ]you can hold a party and the neighbors won't notice [ ]we learn what is important in our lives [ ]your joints are more accurate than The Weather Channel [ ]your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.
At last we realize [ ]our investment in health insurance is finally paying off [ ]our arms are almost too short to read the newspaper [ ]how much it means to have a close friend like you [ ]things we buy now don't wear out [ ]you can eat dinner at 4:00 [ ]there is nothing left to learn the hard way.
