It's 2019, which means e-cards, Facebook picture collages, and the ancient art of handmade (aka bought from Papyrus, we see you) birthday cards are things of the past. In a world where Instagram DMs are the new snail mail and Game of Thrones is officially over, we desperately need some extra laughs — especially on our birthdays. We've put together the perfect list of memes to send to everyone from your mom to your partner in crime celebrating the day of their birth.
