Are there funny senior citizen sayings?
Off course there are! Besides being filled with wisdom, we’re funny people. Anyone who lasts as long as we have has to have a sense of humor. Right?
Some of our sayings are just pure wisdom of the ages. Don’t you agree?
Like, “A penny saved is a penny earned.”
My dad had his own little twist on this one. It was one of his favorites. AND, it has actually served me very well: “A penny saved is a penny and a quarter earned.”
No tax on the saved penny.
Where do these funny senior citizen sayings come from?
There are things that poke us and make us respond. And, things that just make us laugh.
And, then there are our attitudes from all this experience. We don't respond well to nonsense and politically correct idiocy. We've lived long enough that we don't have to put up with all those kinds of things. So,... we have our own way of responding...
As seniors, we also have all kinds of amusing issues that belong just to us. And, these things can make us laugh too.
Our issues, observations, thoughts, pearls of wisdom and frustration all turn into “sayings”. Many are not only wonderfully true, they are also just plain funny!
That’s how this whole page got started.
A bunch of us were sitting around one night, sipping a bit of wine (OK, more than a bit…), and this topic of funny senior citizen sayings and attitudes came up.
There were so many, and they had us all laughing so much, that we wanted to share as many as we could with you.
Before we get you laughing with us, we want you to remember why you are so Beautiful.
And, with this famous little poem, by Mark Twain, we want you to remember what made you that way!
Life is short.
So, Break the rules.
And, never regret anything
that made you smile.
~ Mark Twain
OK. That was the serious philosophy stuff. Just to get you ready.
Let’s take a look at some of the funny senior citizen sayings we’ve all probably heard before, and some of the the ones you hopefully have not heard and enjoyed yet.
We hope these will put a smile on your face, and make you laugh a bit!

Don't mess with
We didn't get this age
By being stupid!
Never pass up
an opportunity to pee.
I used to think
50 was old.
I was wrong.
Not even close.
Sometimes you need to
talk to a three year old

It really kind of sucks
That it takes
Most of your life
To learn how to live.

I AM older, and, I understand absolutely nothing...

Would take longer..."
