15 Funny and Relatable Memes For Everyone Over The Age of 40

There’s a quote I love by George Bernard Shaw that says, “You don’t stop laughing when you grow old, you grow old when you stop laughing.”

And there’s nothing quite like a child and their unfiltered quips to make you laugh about being old. A recent conversation between myself and my fact-toting son:

My son: “I just can’t believe you were alive at the same time as Picasso.”

Me: “Oh my God, how old do you actually think I AM? I was most definitely NOT alive at the same time as Picasso!”

Him: “Picasso died in 1973.”

(Dead silence)

Me: “No more Google for you.”

And since I’ve worked as a substitute teacher in an elementary school and preschool for a number of years, I bet I could write an entire post on kids making me feel old!

Anyway, let’s stay young by laughing together…I’ve rounded up 15 relatable memes for those of us “of a certain age”…enjoy!
