It’s not always easy writing a birthday message for someone, especially for those who don’t want to be reminded of their age.
Luckily one man had the support of his loving dad who told him that turning 33 isn’t necessarily a “special” birthday.
Mac Thompson recently celebrated his 33rd birthday and his dad Dennis was there to send his wishes in the most unique way.
Instead of his usual “From Dad” message, the 65-year-old teacher reminisced about becoming a parent at the same age.
But he also included an “out of the blue” morbid note, which read: “Jesus was 33 when he was crucified. Enjoy your day! Love dad.”
And it’s safe to say that the birthday wishes left Mac, from Florida, US, slightly baffled.

He said: “What the f*** LOL’ Like I didn’t really expect him to include that part about Jesus considering we’re not particularly religious.
“I think he was just reminding me of the fact 33 was a big milestone for him personally.
“He grew up going to Catholic school so maybe that random piece of information stuck with him.”
After sharing the surprise message on social media, Mac’s post quickly went viral as he was inundated with comments.
He explained: “Mostly everyone has been commenting on how everyone’s dad has the same handwriting.
“My plans for 33 are to not to die from Covid-19 and to try and eat healthier with help from my new air fryer from dad.”
