40th Birthday Humor - Ideas and Quotes to Lighten Up the Occasion

Are you seeking inspiration for 40th birthday humor?

Many people see turning forty as a very significant lifetime event. Some look forward to it, viewing it as a milestone marking what they've already done, where they've already been, leading to where they'll go, and what they'll do in the years to come.

A lot of people, however, fear it, dread it, and see it as the very date that sets the process of going "over the hill" in motion. Regardless, there are a lot of ways to look at this time in a person's life as humorous. As a matter of fact, throwing humor into it is likely to lighten a person's dark and dreary outlook of this specific birthday.

Here, I'll take some time to share with you some 40th birthday humor that you might use to brighten another's day.

The first way to add some humor to a 40th birthday is through a funny piece of clothing. There are hats and shirts out there that say some very hilarious things. One that caught my eye was an image of a hand holding up only the middle finger (interpret this as you please) saying "I'm this many: (image of the finger) x 40!"

If the one turning 40 is a single woman (or maybe not-so-single but with a great sense of humor), the slogan, "The lovely thing about being forty is that you can appreciate twenty-five year old men" (this is quoted from Colleen McCullough) can be used for 40th birthday humor.

Another very funny shirt for a 40th birthday has a drawing of two hands on it and the humorous saying below, "I'm 40 & I feel great. Feel for yourself!" Any t-shirt with the above funny quotes on them is sure to turn some heads and get some laughs!

Another place to include 40th birthday humor is in a card. It might be more personal to buy a card that's blank on the inside and just has a funny image on the outside. This way, you can come up with your own funny or witty saying for the card.

You could state something like Charles Schultz's saying, "Just remember, once you're over the hill, you'll begin to pick up speed." You might even draw your own picture for this one! You could use Tom Stoppard's quote, "Age is a high price to pay for maturity." Or even one from Bob Hope, "Middle age is when your age starts to show around your middle." Libby Reid said, "The 'I just woke up' face of your 30's is the 'all day long' face of your 40's."

Any of these (and there are many more ideas online, or you could come up with your own) messages of 40th birthday humor would be sure to get a laugh out of the person reading the card you've made them.

If you're trying to bring some 40th birthday humor to someone who's really not looking forward to getting older, any of the preceding ideas will work wonders. You'll probably really cheer someone up and brighten their day, and perhaps make them see that turning the big "four-oh" isn't so bad, after all.
