Fortieth Birthday Party For His Wife

Deciding to throw a fortieth birthday party for his wife, a man ordered a huge cake from the bakery. Over the phone he said: “The message I want is ‘You are not getting older, you are getting better.'”

The baker’s assistant said: “That’s a lot of words. How should we arrange it?”

After a moment’s thought, the man said: “Put ‘You are not getting older’ at the top, ‘You are getting better’ at the bottom.”

OK,” said the assistant, making a note of the inscription to give to the baker.

Come the day of the party, friends and family travelled from far and wide. At the height of the celebrations, the birthday cake was unveiled. The wife was greatly embarrassed to read the message on it: “You are not getting older at the top, you are getting better at the bottom.”
