7. A Prank Call
One of the most creative, surprising yet funny ways to say happy birthday is through a prank call. Say for example, you can talk to the birthday person like a caller from a popular game show. Tell him or her that he or she has won a chance to visit the show. The excitement heats up when there are more interesting questions from his or her side, as if it is a real call. Finally, when he or she is completely into the phone, sing a nice birthday song and give a f****** surprise.
8. A Funny Birthday Greeting At The Beach
This prank can only be played if you are all out at a beach on his or her birthday. Let the b’day guy enjoy the bright sun rays, resting on a towel on the sand. As soon as he goes to the washroom, ask someone to keep him busy. Meanwhile you can dig a hole right under his towel. The deeper the hole, more fun it is. But since you might not find time to do, you can try as much as you can. Once this is done, put back the towel in a way that it neatly covers the hole. Once he comes and rests, it will be fun to watch! This is the right moment to cuddle him and sing a funny birthday song for him.
9. A Personalized Birthday Card With Funny Poems
Birthdays are incomplete without cards and gifts. Talking about cards in particular, you can do something creative out of this. Explore some nice ways to do this. Perhaps, you can sketch few funny cartoons, write some funny phrases or poems or sketch illustrations on the card. Here are few great versions we got from the internet:
Men are just like chocolates
Us girls know that is true
Found in bars they don’t last long
Enough to satisfy you
And on that thought
Inside every older person.
Is a young person.
Wondering what the hell happened!
The day after your birthday,
you look in the mirror to see:
a) you’ve got a zit from eating all that cake;
b) your love handles have expanded a half inch;
c) you singed your eyebrows blowing out the candles.
You may look a little older,
Sadly youth doesn’t come cheap,
So skip all those Botox parties,
And just get your beauty sleep.
Be glad you’re young at heart,
And still look as good as gold,
Too bad you’re not a millionaire,
And can’t put your looks on hold.
The day after your birthday, it’s time to:
a) return some gifts (what IS that, anyway?);
b) call your friends and apologize for yesterday;
c) get out of the country, fast.
10. Confuse Him With This Time Travel Prank
This certainly is one of the funny ways to say happy birthday. But this prank requires the birthday person to be at home so that you can turn his or her birthday into real fun. All you have to do is set the entire clocks in the house ahead by 1 or 2 hours to get things confusing. This funny trick goes really well if you are with the victim so that you can keep him diverted even if something is about to go wrong. The birthday boy will look puzzled when he steps out the next morning to office and finds out that the world is running too slow. Surely, he will come back annoyed. Then, just wish him with a funny message.
11. Terrify And Then Scream – “Happy Birthday”
Arrange a surprise birthday party well earlier. When you drive the birthday boy or girl to the location, have someone to push a human-like pinada in front of your car. This will almost shock the shit of his life. This is the right moment to scream – “Happy Birthday”.
12. Itching Birthday Greeting
This is one of the most successful and funny ideas to say happy birthday to someone you love. Throw a big party at his place. Invite his friends and with a surprise, burst a big balloon on his head (the balloon should already be filled with some itching powder). By the time he/she realizes that there is something fishy going on, the scratching process would have already begun. Preoccupy the washroom so that he or she is not allowed to wash off the itching powder away. Don’t think that this is dangerous. Most itching powders, especially the ones designed for birthday parties are manufactured using natural products. Hence, within a short time he or she will stop scratching. You can wish him or her then.
13. Birthday Tees
T-shirts have always played a good role in making any occasion memorable and funny at the same time. Prearrange few people and some t-shirts, which have an alphabet printed on it. So, you got to collect 20 to 25 t-shirts that completes the line: HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOHN (or whatever the name you want). Have his friends wear all the t-shirts and surprise him by showing this.
14. Friend Inside A Box
This funny birthday greeting turns really interesting if he or she is pretty inquisitive about those birthday gifts. All you have to do is to get a human-size carton, where one of his best friends should be inside, wearing a really creepy mask. Wrap the box neatly but ensure that there is enough space for the person inside to breathe. Once the birthday person opens the gift with an intention to get something big, he will get the scariest moment of his life. You can just imagine what happens next.
15. Finally, Say It With Funny Quotes
Add a little flair when you wish happy birthday to someone. Here are few funny ones to try:

Good luck beating the rape charges!
So excited to measure your popularity and overall value as a person based on how many birthday wish comments you receive! (Hope things have improved since last year.)
Just wanted to show how much you mean to me by exerting minimal effort to express basic human pleasantries!
Your profile picture is so saturated and hipstamatic’d to within an inch of its life, I’d swear you’d turned another year younger! And that it were 1977!
I don’t know you at all but we have a lot of mutual friends and I think I met you at a party once. Now I’m going to force an inside joke out of something trivial I recall from that night: Like, MCNUGGETS?! Hahaha seriously! LOVE YOU, BITCH XXOXOXO
Four more years! Four more years!
I am purposefully leaving a comment devoid of capital letters and proper punctuation to show how little I care about you hugs and kisses your passive aggressive frenemy
I can’t believe something as gross as your parents having sex made something as normal as you!
It bums me out to see you marching ever closer to your inevitable demise! 🙁
You’re one year closer to finally finding out the terrible truth your family has kept hidden all this time!
I hope you have the kind of day that inspires a terrible Black Eyed Peas song!
After checking out the profiles of the other birthday well-wishers, I agree with what you were saying about most of your friends being ugly and boring! Gag! LOL!
Rumor has it that you are as old as your nose and your two big toes, but a little older than your teeth.
Happy Free Dranks Day! (Looking forward to your Intervention Day coming up soon!)
We were all worried when you arrived that the stork had delivered a bad egg…but we were wrong. For now. Happy Birthday!

Handing a small trophy to the birthday person: congrats! You have won this award for having a birthday that falls on today. May you bask in pride.
I usually try to give people a birthday card that matches their age. Unfortunately, they were all out of the stone tablet and ancient papyrus greeting cards. I guess this more modern version will have to do.
So weird that after this many years of experience, you still do almost everything wrong!
Since your mother worked extremely hard on your birthday to birth you, shouldn’t she be the one getting the presents, cake, and party?
If you were a witch, you definitely would have found out by now. Let that dream go!
If it’s your birthday, then you better dress for the occasion. Wear your birthday suit. Just kidding, your suit is probably too wrinkled.
Time to stop acting the way you act!
Great job passively being born all those years ago. You could have clawed and fought and beat your little baby fists to stay inside your mother, but instead you just said “whatever” and let the chips fall where they may. I really admire your commitment to zoning out and letting external forces take over. You haven’t changed a bit!
