When someone is ill or injured it can be a frustrating, miserable and often lonely place to be. They could do with being cheered up or having a laugh. That's why funny get well wishes can be so great. If a loved one or friend is unwell then you can send them a funny message or joke, maybe gently making fun of their situation. Putting a smile on their face when they're feeling down or fed up will be hugely appreciated and could brighten their boring or unhappy day.
However, you must be certain that the recipient of your message or card is going to be able to laugh at themselves and be part of the joke. There is a real chance they may not find being ill funny and could take offence. So be mindful of that and try to be 100% sure the person the message is intended for is the type who will be open to having their illness/injury poked fun at.
