This can is meant more for a many, but most of the sayings could be changed. Here are the sayings on the sides and top of the can. I just added chalk to accentuate words.
Chronologically gifted! Aged like fine wine, complex & fruity. I'm not old, I'm youthfully challenged. Are we the grownups yet? It's not about age, it's about attitude. Getting old sucks, but it sure beats the alternative. 40! I demand a recount. Happy birthday, you old bird! Enjoy your birthday, you're not extinct yet! I'm 40 & I feel great. Feel for yourself! Oh no, say it isn't so. Not the big 4-0! Forty happens! Lordy, lordy, look who's forty! 40! Not me, no way! After forty everything that doesn't hurt doesn't work! Charter member, "Old farts hall of fame". Forty is the ultimate "F" word. Love your 40's, because you know what comes next? Your 50's! I'm not 40, I'm 18 with 22 years experience! I can't believe you're 40; 39 maybe, but never 40! Once over the hill, you pick up speed. My own mortality will be the death of me yet. How the hell'd I get this old? In dog years I'm dead. Naps & farts, that's all I'm really good for these days My wild oats have turned to mush. Old fart, young heart. Aged to perfection! You're a classic, you only get better with age! On your birthday: count your candles, count your years, count your blessings! I'm in no shape to exercise. Don't interupt me while I'm talking to myself. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. Age equals wisdom, yeah right!Fabulous forty! Da Man! I'll be spontaneous when I get around to it. D@mn right, I'm good in bed. I can sleep for days! I would enjoy walking if it weren't for those long walks back. I used to jog 5 miles a day; then I found a short cut. I used to be a man of vision, before the medication cleared it up. Growing old is inevitable. Growing up is optional. I get everything I set my mind to. Now where'd I set my mind? If you see me getting smaller, I'm leaving. Been there, done that. I have the body of a god - Buddha! Be kind to your kids; they'll be choosing your nursing home. Ask me if I care. I'm immortal -- so far! Adults are just teenagers who owe money! Avenge yourself; live long enough to be a problem to your kids!Everyone has a photographic memory. Some just don't have film. Go ahead, make my day! Caution, senior moment in progress! Cleverly disguised as a responsible adult. Age is not a destination, it's a journey! Old dude, made of achy breaky parts. Caution, middle age meltdown I'm too sexy for my hair, that's why it isn't there. Over the hill and on a roll. Hi-ho, hi-ho, it's over the hill I go. Over what hill? What hill? I don't see any hill! I remember when motorcycles were dangerous and sex was safe! 40 year old; one owner; needs parts; make offer. I live in my own little world, but it's okay because they know me here. You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me. Official member of the "Piss & Moan" club. Age is like underwear, it creeps up on you! I'm at that awkward age between desirability and complete senility. Better to be an old fart than a young $hithe@d. Age is important only if you're cheese or wine. Old age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill. Seen it all, done it all, can't remember most of it. If God had wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees. I get enough exercise just pushing my luck. Few women admit their age. Few men act theirs. Eat right, exercise regularly, die anyway. When I feel athletic, I go to a sports bar. The older I get, the better I was. Suffers from Clue Deficit Disorder. My karma ran over your dogma. I was built for comfort, not speed. Hard work will pay off later. Laziness pays off now! Living right doesn't really make you live longer, it just seems like longer! Mouth is in gear, brain is in neutral. I'd explain it to you, but your brain would explode. I used to get lost in the shuffle; now I just shuffle along with the lost. Chaos, panic & disorder.... my work here is done. It's easier to get older than it is to get wiser. Don't worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older, it will avoid you. Our parents were never our age. We are born naked, wet & hungry, then things get worse. I am NOT in denial According to my best recollection, I don't remember. Sometimes I wake up grumpy -- other times I let her sleep. My mind is made up, don't confuse me with the facts! A mind is like a parachute: it only functions when it is open. As you grow older, you stand for more and fall for less.

I have a question on the paper...how did you get it to fit completely around the can? Did you have to piece it together? I plan on making something like this, but my paper won't go all the way around the can!
------------------------------ Somewhere in the world Americans are risking their lives so that I may live and work in peace and safety. I thank them and wish them well.
