When selecting a birthday card for your beloved brother, consider one that both reflects the bond you share and induces laughter in the recipient. There are a number of ways that you can create an uncommonly funny card for your sibling. Consider one of these options in place of a standard card for his next birthday.
Family Photo Fun
Create a card using a classic family image. Search your photo albums for a humorous image from your childhood. Look for a photo in which you or your sibling has been caught in the act or is looking a bit out of sorts. Use this image on the front of your card, and compose a short phrase on the card interior to comment upon the image. For example, if you locate an image of your father holding your brother upside down by his feet, you could write on the inside "And people wonder why you are weird." This distinctive card will likely be appreciated by your brother, as he will see that you have put extra effort into the greeting.
Top Ten List
Create a humorous top ten list for your sibling. On a blank card, write a top ten list on a topic such as "Top Ten Reasons I Like Being your Brother" or "Top Ten Reasons I am Surprised we Survived Childhood." Compose an array of funny entries in your list, placing the first nine on the front of the card and the final, funniest entry, on the interior. Include inside jokes or make references to special experiences that you share as siblings to make the list truly one-of-a-kind.
Spice up a boring card with a sibling-themed joke. Peruse a joke book and look for a joke that is germane to the relationship that you and your brother share. Write this joke in a blank card to give your brother the gift of laughter as he ages another year.
You Are Older Than...
Poke fun at your ageing brother with a "You are Older Than..." card. To create this card, gather images of things that your brother is older than. Depending on your sibling's age, these things could include the Internet, MTV or the laptop computer. On the interior of a blank card, write "You are Older Than..." in dark print. Glue your collected images around this phrase to finish your greeting.
