I understand this was done more for amusement, but if you were going to do this I would recommend that you get the business card blanks at a local office supply story so that you can print at home vs. going to a printer. 

That way:

You can save money, Very Mustachian, by printing small quantities.
You can create custom cards, where each one has a different middle line.  People will be begging for your cards to see what kind of witty wisdom you are advertising for the day.  You will have the fortune cookie of business cards.  Of course they will be financially independent cards vs. business cards as you will not conducting business or you will be deemed to be not retired, but that is another topic.

I am still digging the Senior Mustachian or Global Moderator titles, but that could be envy as I am a lowly Handlebar.

‘Clairvoyant’ and ‘Card Carrying Member’ are both inspired.

I like ‘Renaissance Man’ and ‘Sage’, but if you are modest you might prefer ‘Apprentice Renaissance Man’ or ‘Apprentice Sage’. I suspect that many Mustachians would like to see themselves as one of these.

Samuel Johnson, in eighteenth century London, wrote a series of essays collectively known as The Idler. I may have read a few at school, and my hazy memory is that an Idler is an intelligent and educated man who has enough money that he does not need to work, but, either because of inadequate wealth, or by inclination, is not at the social level of a Gentleman. I am surprised to discover that there is a British periodical called the Idler, published since 1993. I not have yet found out much about it, but it seems that the ideas behind it are partly Mustachian.

I therefore recommend the term ‘Idler’.

Or for something completely different, ‘Galactic Hitchhiker’.

Nice!

Though I'd prefer the first definition over the second (the "or").

I knew a retired guy with cards like you're describing. His "title" was Bon Vivant.

I like that, except I don't like food THAT much, and I want people to understand it right away, rather than having to google it (and having to explain it means it's automatically too pretentious... Try to explain what a Bon vivant is without sounding pretentious.)

"Aristocrat."

Epicurean is out for the same reasons.

Favorite: custom-made flash drive business card - http://www.seeedstudio.com/recipe/img/recipe/FNYY46TGQ5PYP4K.MEDIUM.jpg; don't confuse this with the mass-market usb drive business cards you can buy. One is off the shelf, the other custom made.

Close second: doesn't have to be a built, functional design; it can just look good - http://hackedgadgets.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/damage-designs-circuit-board-business-card_2.jpg

If circuit boards aren't your thing, how about laser-cut aluminum or stainless steel business cards? http://studiokandm.com/guestblog/images/creativebusiness-12.jpg

I suppose a downside to these might be that you're no longer getting a hundred printed for $3, and maybe you'll have to start caring about to whom you give your cards. I suppose another downside would be that in many industries, and many geographical areas, you might look like a fool giving one of these out. So it goes. Maybe this won't do for a lawyer. It'll do just fine for a professional geek, though.

There is literally no other thread on this forum that has ever made me so excited for early retirement. I want to eat Ramen every day just so I can use one or more of these ideas one or more year(s) earlier.

My current real b-card says "Nice to meet you" in that spot.
