PIO #2 - Funny Card

Pile It On's  challenge #2 of the year could easily be my favorite.  It's to make a humorous birthday card.  Who among you doesn't love to torment anyone older than yourself with an insultingly funny card?  Sadly, for some of us, no names mentioned, the list of people we can send this kind of card to is growing shorter.   I've remedied that by sending them to people younger than me too, hey, they're getting up there now too and it's about time I let them know it.  And yes I know that it leaves the inevitable "you'll always be older than me" remark to be made but it's going to be made sooner or later in the conversation anyway so I might as well get my dig in there too.  Have you noticed that the people who are only a little bit younger than you are the ones who really like to dig it in, or am I the only one who has that kind of friend?
Here's the deets:
stamp - Bugaboo "Make It Snappy Stella - Stella Birthday Old Fart"
ink - hp printer
paper - My Favorite Things "Kraft" card stock; October Afternoon "Sarsaparilla"' Stampin' up "Brilliant Blue"
miscellaneous - copics; mini brads; buttons; burlap twine
