Funny Belated Birthday Memes
We are bringing the funny belated birthday memes so don’t feel bad you were just delayed.
Nothing is worse than a busy week, where you are so productive you aren’t even on Facebook. You get some downtime – login to the face of books to find out that you forgot your aunt’s birthday who also shares a birthday with your next door neighbor.

Word to the wise – these funny happy belated birthday memes are perfect for co-workers. Especially if your coworker had a bday over a weekend, make sure to send a meme!
When I was in corporate America, I loved printing out memes and taping them to my co-worker’s desk! Yes, ironic but that was totally the point!
This tactic also works well for every day use, especially when stress in the office is high. Check out our work memes to help make a day better!
Late Birthday Memes Are Fine
Rather than being trendy and wishing your friend a happy birthday on their actual birthday.
I mean, who really wants the gifts and cake covered in confetti when you can just gift your friend a funny belated birthday meme.
Everyone is sending birthday wishes on the actual date of someone’s birth is fine. But what really matters is when you are late and no one is thinking of your friend or loved one but you are. Because you are late.
Slow to Wish Happy Birthday
When you are slow it’s best to just call it out. If your friend or family member knows you well, chances are that they know that you are slow and they totally didn’t expect to get an on-time bday greeting from you anyways.
So own your slow with these funny belated birthday memes!
Better Late Than Never
We are all busy and unless your friend is a real well let’s just say a not very graceful person, they will forgive you.
Birthday greetings are better late than never. Just send the belated meme and ask for forgiveness, also don’t be mad at your friend if they are late or forget your special day next year!
Forgot Your Birthday Meme
Don’t you hate when you remember that you forgot an important date? I’ve started putting people’s birthdays in my phone calendar but you have to remember to make it an annual event!
Or you could just ignore that you are late and reframe it as something else. Donald Trump would!
Now Chuck Norris on the other hand, he would just change the date to today.
Happy Belated Birthday Images
If none of the other happy belated birthday images tickle your fancy, fret not we have more.
Nobody needs a mainstream friend. Keep it weird, be late.

Have a friend that loves the Muppets or Beeker? This belated birthday meme is for them.
For the Yoda or Star War lover – I mean, with this how could you not be forgiven for forgetting someone’s day of their birth? Don’t miss our Star Wars birthday memes.
We all have that special friend who either does this face or that you make this face for. And if you don’t, you need to find that friend and not forget their bday. But if you do, make sure you send them this.
I think the kids call this happy belated birthday image, “late.”
Not Late – Just Early
When you aren’t necessarily late, you are just early for the next year.
3 Tips for Remembering Birthdays
Here are 3 tips to help you remember someone’s birthday so next year you can just send a regular birthday meme and not have to *face palm* send a happy belated birthday meme.
Using technology, here are 3 easy and helpful ways to not be that person who is late or forgetful. And if you are that person, don’t worry. Do as I say, not as I do.
- Phone Contacts – Put your friends and family birth dates in your contacts on your phone. By doing this, you will get a notice on your phone’s calendar on their bday.
- Facebook – Yes, I know. We all have a love hate relationship with FB. This is the only way that I have any recollection of birthdays – yes family included. You can actually see birthdays now a few days in advance on Facebook home screen’s right sidebar when on your computer.
This is helpful to know and has saved me many times when someone special is about to turn a year older! (If you have quit Facebook – Facebook quitter memes are perfect for those who have quit the book of faces.)
- Family Google Calendar – get that Type A person in your family to create a family Google calendar featuring all of your family members’ birthdates. Add in your friends dates as well. Make the Google family birthday calendar shareable so now there isn’t an excuse when you forget your sister’s birthday.
