I reached my annual birthday in April. As you get older, it’s less of an occasion to celebrate anything except survival, what you should have learned and what you still plan to achieve in the diminishing time remaining.
Some of my friends, sent me funny stuff. I used to get it within cards, now it’s from the web. Bear in mind my earlier blog about friends – Are Friends That We Only Communicate With Digitally, Actually Real Friends At All? (12 November 2013).
Still it’s the thought that counts.
And what is the point of an internet avalanche of funnies if you’re still going to queue up at Tesco to buy me an actual card from their Value range?
No, no. So here are some of the jokes people emailed me to mark my birthday!
