BirthdayCardFilter: Give me your best pun for this birthday card.

Making a b-day card for my younger brother. He's turning 23 in October and is in his first year of grad school for psychology. He just recently moved into his first apartment.

Currently, the back of the card is blank and this image is on the front.

Just trying to put a smile on his face when he gets this in the mail.

Thanks!

'This dog had a horrible wasting disease. He could not even negotiate a path around that ball to get to the bone he desperately wanted. He died soon after this card was designed. No one attended his funeral.

Hope all is well! Talk to you soon!

-Your name'

"Bone or ball? Ball or bone? Life is full of decisions. Looks like you're making the right ones. Happy Birthday!"

I know there's a good pavlov joke here somewhere.

"Observe our analysand: Fido's lack of proper socialization in early puppyhood left him with a sublimated desire for the bone as a stand-in phallus to replace his father. However the ball he does not desire, as it is symbolic of his mother whom he internalized after suffering a melancholic separation, thus negating the need for outward maternal symbols."

A bit long, but maybe he will find it funny.

"Just like Lance Armstrong at a strip club, Fido had one ball and a bone."

"I hope some lucky dog gets slobber all over your bone and ball. Happy Birthday!"

This is, of course, reliant on coming from a family with questionable taste.

Ok, wow. You guys are good! I have to mail the card in about an hour, so I'll wait until then to mark the one I choose.

But really, they're all great based on the little info I provided!

Thanks everyone!

Age-inappropriate sparkling plastic two-dimensional cartoon dalmatian wishes you a happy 23rd birthday!

(bone and ball also send their regards)

You'll know it was a great party when you wake up with glitter on your balls.

Even Fido had to admit this game was a lot more fun than the little cards with the black ink all over them. Happy Birthday!
