When someone's birthday approaches, simply wishing her a "happy birthday" may not suffice. A more humorous technique for the celebrant's special day may be a better way to go about it. Funny birthday wishes can help make it a day to remember.

A singing telegram that wishes the celebrant a happy birthday can be amusing, interesting and possibly a little embarrassing. Whether the telegram shows up at work, a party or at home, it is sure to be an experience not soon forgotten. Singing telegrams include characters in a wide variety of costumes, such as a bag lady, a doctor, a pink gorilla and even a chicken. Prices vary depending on the company but typically cost more than £65.

Everywhere Prank

If you know where a person will be throughout his birthday, or at least know one or two people who can help you, consider pulling a small prank almost everywhere the celebrant is going to be on the big day. For example, at home in the morning, if he eats breakfast, put blue food colouring in several items he usually uses, such as milk or bread. Put a whoopie cushion on the driver's seat of his car. At work, set his screen saver to pictures he might never use, such as pictures of stuffed teddy bears.

At each prank, write "Happy Birthday!" on a piece of paper and stick it somewhere he can see it.


If you have the time and access to the celebrant's home, blow up as many balloons as possible and fill up a room in the house. For example, if time and money are limited, fill up the bathroom. Otherwise, try to fill up a larger room, such as the living room. He will either have to move all the balloons or spend quite a bit of time popping all of them.
