The funniest birthday memes
Are you on the hunt for hilarious birthday memes? Will the perfect GIF birthday meme make that special person’s day just a little bit more magical? Is this collection of ultimate birthday memes sufficiently distracting to relieve the gnawing anxiety you feel about your own looming mortality?
Birthdays rule. A whole day, that’s entirely dedicated to you! An annual celebration of your literal ongoing existence – a cheery signpost, a colourful rest-stop, if you will, on life’s all-too-short highway.
Perhaps you’ll throw a party, or get together with friends and family for a special meal. Heck, somebody might even bake you a cake and sing ‘Happy Birthday To You’, which is apparently the most performed song in the English language.
Anyway, as it’s the 21st century, there’s an excellent chance somebody will also pop up on your social media feed with a cute birthday meme, just for you. You lucky thing!
FUNNY BIRTHDAY MEMES
Traditionally, birthday greetings were sincere and thoughtful – a warm, kind acknowledgement of the passing year, delivered in a schmaltzy tone of voice with, I dunno, a picture of a teddy bear or something.
Today’s slick, internet-literate generation prefers their greetings with a side of irony, and even sometimes a soupçon of goodnatured, hilarious cruelty.
Make your own personalised birthday memes and GIFs with a little help from your old pals at Memix. We know funny.
PERSONALISED BIRTHDAY GIFS
But what if you literally can’t think of what to say on your awesome personal GIF birthday message? Not everybody is hella creative, after all.
Memix has a handy prompt system, offering you ideas and inspiration. Never have writers block again!
But realistically, if you just put their name on it, and ‘happy birthday chump’ or something equally droll, that’ll do the job.
On one level, it makes you look great, because you applied creativity and effort. But on another level, you didn’t have to actually visit a store and buy a card. You just used your phone, like always!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY QUOTES
Still hunting for that all-important inspirational birthday quote, that will elevate your humble birthday greeting – delivered in a custom GIF meme via the magic of Memix – to the rarefied status of ‘omg dude that’s perfect you’re the best friend ever!’?!
Here’s a doozy from Lucille Ball: ‘The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age’. Saucy sixties icon Brigitte Bardot, for her part, reckoned: ‘It is sad to grow old – but nice to ripen’.
Julia Child was of the opinion ‘A party without cake is just a meeting.’ Melanie White said ‘Now that you’re 21, it’s time to stop playing video games and start designing them.’ Veteran comic Bob Hope loved to say ‘You know you’re getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.’
Here’s an absolute banger of a quote from Keanu Reeves:
BIRTHDAY PARTY GIFS
If you’re not likely be meeting up with the birthday boy or girl in person – because they live miles away, or aren’t celebrating, or you can’t be bothered – you can guarantee that a witty custom GIF meme from Memix will brighten up their special day anyway.
Just pick from one of thousands of templates and slip in a hilarious saying of your own, or something culled from the great minds above.
Making somebody’s special day just a little better is one of the most sacred duties you have as a friend, a sibling, or a creepy stalker. So let them know exactly how you feel.
Hey, IS STEALING MEMES ILLEGAL?
While we’re here, does anybody know IS IT PRONOUNCED GIF OR JIF?
