Lordy, Lordy, Look Who’s Forty! A Leap Day Joke
Having a birthday on February 29 was always kind of tough, but this year a Leap Day birthday boy was having an especially difficult 40th birthday.
In the morning, his two teenage kids kept saying that they were older than he was (because it was only his tenth Leap Day birthday), and that got old really quickly. While he was at work, the 40-year old Leap Day birthday boy kept thinking about the significance of 40, and he contemplated his place in the universe and wondered if he had contributed anything worthy by his life’s likely halfway point.
Then when he returned home from work, his wife surprised him with a party and a “Lordy, Lordy, Look Who’s 10!” birthday cake.
The 40-year old Leap Day birthday boy flipped out, yelling, “I’m not 10! I’m not 10! I’m 40! Quit calling me 10!”
And with that, he stormed out, ran into the bedroom, and slammed the door.
The Leap Day birthday boy’s wife was quite embarrassed. “I can’t believe this is how he acts on his 40th birthday,” she complained.
“You’re lucky your husband’s birthday is on Leap Day,” her best friend said. “My husband’s birthday is on a normal day, and when he turned 40, he bought a shiny new sports car and ran off with his secretary.”
