60th Birthday Humor - Funny Ideas and Inspiration for Turning Sixty

Need some inspiration for 60th birthday humor?

Turning 60 can be a monumental birthday. Aside from being the entrance to a new decade, it could signify that you are now retired, or at least closer to retirement, and that you're now in a position in your life where you can sit back and enjoy yourself without some of the obligations that you faced in your youth.

With that in mind, when it comes to the 60th birthday itself, a lot of humor can be found when it comes to birthday gifts and birthday cards. In fact, sometimes, it's difficult to find cards for the person turning 60 that aren't humorous!

Popular birthday cards, T-shirts, mugs, bumper stickers and other paraphernalia talk about not only turning another decade, but joke about becoming senile in the process. If the person that you are buying for appreciates this kind of 60th birthday humor, then you will be in luck because there is a wide selection of items to choose from.

Some 60th birthday humor relies on clever wording, or even outright lies when it comes to turning 60. For instance, one popular T-shirt design proclaims "I'm 30 - that's my story and I'm sticking to it!" There is another design that states that the wearer of the shirt is "chronologically gifted."

There is also menopausal humor for women to consider as well. Sayings about being able to light up a dark room with hot flashes, wearing bathing suits in the winter time, and growing facial hair abound. One recent 60th birthday humor T-shirt read "Is it hot in here or is it me?"

Memory loss is a common running joke in regards to men turning 60. One birthday card, for example, started out by saying: "You know you're getting older when you stoop to tie your shoelaces and wonder what else you could do while you're down there."

Although these jokes can be funny, you have to make sure that you are giving them to the right person. Not everyone has the same sense of humor, and you want to ensure that they are actually seeing the humor in the jokes, and not getting offended by such 60th birthday humor.

However, even famous people have made their own jokes about turning 60, and some of the comments, although made years before, are still relevant today. For instance, it was Oscar Wilde who said, "To get back my youth I would do anything in the world, except take exercise, get up early, or be respectable." Likewise, Lord Hood joked about turning six decades by saying that, "Some people reach the age of sixty before others." Of course, you can't pass up hilarious comedian George Carlin, who cracked that, "I'm sixty years of age. That's 16 Celsius."

Age is relative, after all.

If you don't like the idea of purchasing humorous birthday gifts, then there are a variety of birthday cards that contain humorous sayings when it comes to turning 60. These can be a good alternative to gag gifts, which don't always go over as planned, and other 60th birthday humor items that might be forgotten in a couple of weeks.
