If you wish a few good words for this occasion, have a look at these special 40th birthday speeches

If you feel anxious about speaking on this auspicious occasion, I have found music in particular helpful and other interesting ideas that help me relax.

Here are some ideas and 40th birthday humour you may find helpful on the day.


Don’t fill up all that you say with just jokes, too many and you can become monotonous, especially if they do not really relate to the birthday person.

So here are four basic guidelines:

  1. A joke at the beginning (gains attention) and maybe at the end (ends on a good note) will make your words more memorable and persuasive;
  2. Short jokes and one-liners are best. Some personal stories about the Birthday person can spice up your message;
  3. If you find a good joke, adapt and change it to the Birthday person – that way the audience will find it even funnier and personal;
  4. Take care not to embarrass the Birthday person by inferring that 40 is “over-the-hill", especially if you are very young.

Most important is number 3 above: always select, adapt and change humor for your birthday speech, and your audience will be thrilled.  It is not hard to do and can be done in minutes.

There is much here and even more.  Check out at the end.  There is no need to search everywhere for that right piece of humor, it's bound to be here.

Now SCROLL Down and

Enjoy this 40th birthday humour.

The Birthday Study – It’s Proven !

It is proven that the celebration of birthdays is healthy. By reaching your 40th you are one of the healthiest in this room, because Statistics show that those people who celebrate the most birthdays become the oldest. -- S. den Hartog, Ph D. Thesis Universtity of Groningen.

Adapt this Sport Short Story

This Joke can be adapted to any Sport the Birthday person may play.

John was just turning 40 and he had been playing golf all his life.

He comes home one day and said to his wife, "That's it, I will have to give up golf, my eyesight is that bad I can't see where the ball is going anymore."

His wife in trying to cheer him up replied, "I am sure you can give it one more go. Take my older brother with you."

"What good is that," replied John. "He's nearly 90."

"He may be nearly 90 but his eyesight is perfect," replied his wife.

Next day, off they went to play golf. John is a bit shaken up because of the previous day, but confident in his brother-in-law's eyesight. He tees up, breathes slowly and steps forward. And with an all mighty swing - drives the ball down the fairway.

He turns to his brother-in-law and asks, "Did you see the ball?"

"Of course John" replied his brother-in-law. "I have perfect eyesight".

John, all excited, turns back again and says "Where did it go?"

(Split second silence) "I don't remember".

One Liners For Those Who Exercise

Take care <name>.  My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was 40. Now she's 67 years old and we don't know where the hell she is.

Did you know that <name> joined a health club last year, spent about 400 bucks.  He/she hasn’t lost a pound. Apparently you have to go there. 

<Name> was telling me earlier/yesterday that he has found the secret to exercise!  The secret of exercising every day is that you die healthier.

<Name>, if you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country.

And last but not least: <Name> doesn’t exercise because it makes the ice jump right out of his/her glass.

You could run these walking jokes over to your friends but why not just e-mail it to them!

The only reason I would take up exercising is so that I could hear heavy breathing again. 

(ROAST) <Name> has flabby thighs, but fortunately his stomach covers them.

(ROAST)  <Name> has to exercise early in the morning before his/her brain figures out what they’re doing.
