January is a time of many important birthdays in my family, all around the same time. My Uncle Tracy’s birthday is first, then my sister’s and tomorrow is my husband’s birthday! My dad, who has surprisingly advanced social media skills, is the master of posting great birthday memes on everyone’s Facebook pages, so today I’m taking some inspiration from him and bringing you some of my favorite birthday memes. If you want #allofthememes in one easy spot, just follow my “Hilarious” board on Pinterest.
My first category is Somewhat Nice Birthday Memes, which can work for just about anyone. Were you about to write a boring “Happy Birthday! Hope you have a great day!” on someone’s Facebook wall? Stop right there my friend. Put a little more effort into that birthday greeting with one of these fun images. They’re good-natured enough to work for everyone on your list, so keep a few of ’em tucked away for the next birthday greeting you need to send.
And then there are the Not So Nice Birthday Memes, which are admittedly much funnier. Though you wouldn’t send one to your boss or your mom (hopefully), they are perfect for that smart ass friend whom you know can take it. There are even more Grumpy Cat ones too — I just picked my favorite to include here.
Your girlfriends, though, deserve one of these fun Birthday Memes for Girlfriends. Do you have a few friends who are still celebrating their 29th? A friend who enjoys Ryan Gosling memes? (Actually, my love of Ryan Gosling memes is well documented, so you can just save that one for my birthday thankyouverymuch.) Text her one of these on her special day and then go get mani-pedis together because birthdays.
For anyone who is older than you are, making fun of his or her age becomes increasingly fun with each year. At least for me. These Birthday Memes About Getting Old will help you to imply that the birthday boy or girl is ancient or at the very least, close to becoming a nursing home resident any day now. Yes, it’s a cheap joke, but these memes are actually free so even better.
The perfect gift for your drinking buddy (besides buying the next round), these Alcohol Fueled Birthday Memes will get the party started early. Post one of these on your friend’s page so he’ll know how excited you are for
drinking lots of wine later celebrating his birthday together tonight. Again, these are just my favorites of the many lovely drink-related birthday memes available.
Perhaps you need something tame for your boss or your mom who doesn’t even know what a meme is. In that case, here are some lovely Dog Birthday Memes for the occasion. Slightly cheesy but undeniably cute, each of these memes is sure to please. They can also work beautifully if your dog has a social media account and you want to publicly wish her a happy birthday. Just sayin’.
And those are just a few of all the great ones out there! So I encourage you, friends, whenever someone in your life has a birthday coming up, don’t just send a lame text or post a boring “Happy Birthday” on his wall. Take a few extra moments to select the perfect birthday meme for the occasion. You can even grab all of these and more by following my “Hilarious” Pinterest board! And that has been today’s Public Service Announcement. Happy Birthday.
