It’s your birthday, they said. Enjoy your day, they said. But no one said about how terribly wrong birthdays can become.

Like you, people were highly excited about their birthdays, but the universe had other plans for them. So what do we do when we get the short end of the stick? The only thing there’s left. Laugh.

Below are some unfortunate birthdays that made us laugh.
