Funny, Rude Ways to Say Happy Birthday

  • Since I don't believe much in birthday surprises, let me tell you beforehand that I'm going to come to your place and expect to be treated with the best of drinks and a great party. Happy birthday and thanks in advance!
  • We make such a great team—me with my good looks, charm, and intelligence, and you with your ability to be such a great friend to me. Happy birthday!
  • Are you going to use your birthday as an excuse to get totally wasted? Because I'm in. Happy birthday!
  • We know it's your birthday today and you're dying to throw us a splendid party. So, here we are. Happy birthday!
  • It is better to be one year older than one month late. Happy birthday!
  • I wonder why you are celebrating the fact that you're turning older. Nevertheless, I will attend your birthday party. Happy birthday!
  • Happy birthday to you and your newest chin.
  • I hate surprises, so I really hope you have good food at your party. Happy birthday!

  • Another year has gone by, but you haven't gotten any wiser. Oh, well. Happy birthday!
  • I don't feel like wishing you a happy birthday. Because, like everyone else, I don't like reminding you that you are growing old. Happy birthday and stay young!
  • Don’t you think you should make your birthday celebration more mature this year? I agree. Instead of offering orange juice and cake, I think you should graduate to champagne, exotic wine, and caviar. Have a great birthday!
  • What are you so happy about? It's your birthday, and you are going to have to spend a lot of money to keep us happy. Have fun doing it! Happy birthday!
  • Keep some hangover pills ready—we're going to make sure that you need them tomorrow morning. Happy birthday!

  • It doesn't matter to me that you're ugly and stupid. You'll always be my friend. Happy birthday!
  • Do you know how you can set yourself apart from the millions of others in this world who share your birthday today? Just throw us a great party! Wishing you a very happy birthday.
  • I wanted to bake you a birthday cake, but I was honestly worried I'd get frosting in my hair. So, I didn't. Happy birthday anyway!
  • I'm stoked you have a karaoke machine for your birthday! As long as you promise not to use it, you can count on me to show up at your party. Happy birthday!
  • If you don't want us to ask you what your real age is today, just keep the chocolate and champagne coming for the rest of the week, and we'll keep mum. Happy birthday!
  • It would be so much easier to get you the perfect birthday gift if you'd just buy one yourself. Happy birthday!
  • Smart, good-looking, and funny. But enough about me. Happy birthday!
  • An amazing watch, a sexy outfit, a souvenir cap, or the latest PS2 game—I was wondering what I could buy you for your birthday. Don't get too excited, though. None of that was in my budget. Here's a card instead. Happy birthday!
Make your friends laugh with a hilarious, insulting, and slightly rude birthday message.
