Funny Yearbook

When it comes to choosing a yearbook quote, most high school seniors will go with one of a few options. Some students choose a powerful song or poem lyric that speaks to them, maybe something that helped them to get through a particularly difficult period of time. We’ve dedicated this list to the select few high school seniors who decide that, rather than taking their senior quotes seriously, they would prefer to use them as a chance to make teachers, parents, and fellow students laugh. The former high school students on our list truly went above an beyond in their quest for comedic gold. These hilarious high school yearbook photos will have you in tears from laughing so hard.

18 Years And Going Strong!

It’s safe to assume that Michelle has probably heard her fair share of rude comments, wisecracks, and jokes about her family’s name.

yearbook
18 Years And Going Strong!

As a matter of fact, in middle school just about every time a teacher needed to read the attendance list, Michelle would ask to use the rest room. A lot of time has passed since her days of hiding in the bathroom during the daily attendance and grown-up Michelle wants the world to know that she is now proud to be a Ho!

Something Doesn’t Add Up…

High school was hard for Zachary Chastain. It’s nothing short of a miracle that he somehow managed to balance academics, extra curricular activities, a social life, and college applications, all on top of being a teenage male single mother with no children.

yearbook
Something Doesn’t Add Up…

The yearbook committee had a policy of accepting every yearbook quote, as long as they weren’t vulgar, so Zachary’s still made the cut. Once all of the students saw what he wrote, they realized that they probably should have been friends with him.

Liar, Liar

Brandon and Tasha seem to both have a pretty warped view of what ‘everyone’ is thinking.

yearbook
Liar, Liar

While Brandon is clearly a bit delusional, assuming that everyone he has ever come in contact with thinks he his the nicest guy ever, Tasha also doesn’t seem to be the most reliable source, making the outlandish statement on behalf of ‘everyone’ that Brandon Dawson is a serial liar. With senior year in the books, these two will just have to agree to disagree.

She Didn’t Choose The Single Life, The Single Life Chose Her

For many, high school can be some of the cruelest and loneliest years of life. The awkward trials and tribulations of love can leave many adolescents feeling overwhelmed, and helpless.

yearbook
She Didn’t Choose The Single Life, The Single Life Chose Her

These students cling to the hope that they will find a significant other in their 20s. While her four years of high school were certainly difficult, at least Morgan has a sense of humor about it and will be able to laugh at her hilarious yearbook quote for years to come.

Modest Maxwell

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. That’s what Maxwell Barrett learned from his high school experience. Maxwell’s sense of humor and inspirational attitude definitely came in handy during his high school years.

yearbook
Modest Maxwell

While he most likely dealt with his fair share of bullying, ridicule, and name-calling before graduation, Maxwell certainly got the last laugh with his hilarious and clever yearbook quote. We just hope that Maxwell brought his positive outlook, sense of humor, and wardrobe with him to college!

Quoting A Scholar

Kim Kardashian is at it again, proving to the world why her net worth is valued at $175 million. If you thought it was her television show, fashion empire, or relationship with rapper Kanye West that led her to her current level of fame and success, think again.

yearbook
Quoting A Scholar

Before the highly intellectual Kim Kardashian was known for her reality television series, business exploits, or overly publicized love life, she rose to fame as one of the world’s leading linguistics scholars.

The Over-Share

It was always a mystery why Tyler Bentley would laugh hysterically for the entirety of sixth period, her first class after lunch. Well, the mystery has officially been solved.

yearbook
The Over-Share

Tyler should learn that some things are better kept secret, or at least not published in her high school yearbook for all of her classmates to see. When it comes to sharing information about bodily functions, less is always more. It finally makes sense why she laughed so much harder on pizza day.

Never Too Old

Here we have yet another clever duo of yearbook neighbors. This time they wanted to honor everyone’s favorite Nickelodeon cartoon.

yearbook
Never Too Old

Considering that the first episode of Spongebob Squarepants aired all the way back in 1999, this is truly a timeless reference and will probably still be relevant when these two decide to reminisce and share some cherished high school memories with their children and possibly even grandchildren. This just goes to show that you’re never too old for some Spongebob.

Missy Knows Best

When the school administrators told Hannah to “pick a quote that matches your personality,” she knew exactly who she wanted to quote- none other than her role model Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliot.

yearbook
Missy Knows Best

Missy Elliot is a rapper and producer who pretty much ruled the 1990s and early 2000s with her catchy beats, innovative style, and willingness to say anything on her mind. When they asked Hannah why she chose Missy to be her senior quote her response was, “Real recognize real, right?!”

Twinning

Yearbook twin jokes never get old. With practically endless material out there and two photos almost guaranteed to appear next to one another, twins never cease to amaze us.

yearbook
Twinning

This time, Katherine and Rebecca Henderson came up this hilarious side-by-side demonstration of why it’s so awesome to be a twin. While most of their classmates probably laughed and appreciated the twins’ humor, we’re not so sure that their parents felt the same way when they saw their daughters’ page in the yearbook.

Syked!

Having a positive self image is so important, especially for high school students. Garrett Syke is the perfect example of what it means to be proud of who you are.

yearbook
Syked!

While having butterflies is typically a sign of love or attraction and some might even say it’s a little weird to get them when thinking about oneself, we’re just going to go ahead and call it a sign of self-admiration. Way to go Garrett Syke! Keep being who you are!

Quoting A Legend

While we don’t doubt that Martin Luther King Junior probably did, in fact, eat some incredibly delicious tacos at some point during his life, we’re not sure that these exact words actually came out of King’s mouth.

yearbook
Quoting A Legend

Sure, if the tacos were actually some really good tacos, he could have said it, but we can’t help but wonder if this high school graduate could have maybe chosen a better, more appropriate quote from the most influential civil rights leader of all time.

Not A Morning Person

Connor Hart must have a pretty bizarre morning routine. For just about every high school student, the act of waking up is the most difficult part of the morning by a landslide. For Connor, however, there is something more challenging that he faces every morning.

yearbook
Not A Morning Person

Perhaps Connor has a strict and demanding workout regiment that he follows each and every morning. This could also explain why Conor never wears sweatpants to school because they are always dirty after his morning workouts.

Classic Shwartz!

This one is really just classic Shwartz. We all thought he had outdone himself when he took his shirt off at the senior museum field trip and started riding one of the dinosaurs. But nope!

yearbook
Classic Shwartz!

Shwartzy is at it again! Good old Greg definitely had his fair share of success with the ladies during his reign at GHS and was never shy about it. We’re just thankful that the always-classy Shwartz decided to pull off one more epic senior year shenanigan before graduation.

Giving Credit Wear Credit Is Do

This gentleman used his yearbook quote to give a shoutout to all of the English teachers who have molded him into an intelligent and capable young.

yearbook
Giving Credit Wear Credit Is Do

We’re sure his WHS teachers are so proud of how far he has come since his freshman year, when his writing needed improvement, to say the least. Now, as a graduating senior, he has learned so much more than can be taught in the classroom. His former teachers are confident that he will always do the write thing.

Know Your Role

Mitchell Wieland decided to use his senior yearbook quote to drop some harsh truths on his peers. While parents will often tell their children to “be themselves,” this advice can oftentimes be problematic and misleading.

yearbook
Know Your Role

What parents fail to consider is the possibility that their kid is naturally an unlikeable and undesirable person. Thankfully, for these kids, that’s where Mitchell comes in to tell them that it might be better to just try to blend in with the crowd.

An Honest Vegetarian

These days, it seems that everyone is talking about the latest dieting trends. Whether it’s vegan, vegetarian, paleo, or carb-free, the food we eat has become much more than a source of nutrition.

yearbook
An Honest Vegetarian

For some, switching to a plant-based diet has become an obsession. We all know that one vegan who, no matter what, will never stop talking about being a vegan, despite obvious social clues of disinterest. As the first ever honest vegetarian, Ankit Jain is truly a breath of fresh air.

Just One Time

Jason Avina chose to use his yearbook quote as an opportunity to advocate for one of everybody’s favorite breakfast foods. With absolutely zero context, we’re not really sure what Jason wants us to do with the information presented under his photo.

yearbook
Just One Time

Perhaps Jason was trying to drop hints about the graduation present he had been hoping for- a gift certificate to his favorite bagel place. A much more likely option, Jason was simply a class clown looking for one last laugh before graduation.

Honesty Is The Best Policy

Anyone who’s seen Mean Girls, knows that high school girls can be incredibly cruel to their peers. Alixandra Garcia was apparently known among other students as a hilarious friend who would often say things that were so mean, there’s no way she could have possibly meant them.

yearbook
Honesty Is The Best Policy

Alixandra decided to use her yearbook platform to confess that she was, in fact, being entirely serious with all of the terrible things she said over her high school career. At least she was honest.

Dropping Some Knowledge

With one of the more profound and inspirational quotes on our list, James Curtin decided to quote a man with wisdom far beyond his years. We’re talking about none other than Sisqo of course, an R&B legend from the late ’90s.

yearbook
Dropping Some Knowledge

Some might argue that Sisqo’s subject matter is simply too deep for a high school senior to comprehend. But James Curtin would dare to disagree. James believes that it’s never too early to take on deeply philosophical texts and quotes.

Ambition

We could all learn a lot from Madi Genz and her inspirational attitude when it comes to food.

yearbook
Ambition

Madi is a true go-getter and the type of girl who refuses to let limitations such as dietary guidelines or what may or may not be considered socially acceptable hold her back from chasing her dreams and turning them into reality. There’s no mountain she can’t climb, no ocean she can’t swim, no obstacle she can’t conquer, and no pizza she can’t scarf down in one sitting.

That Spelling, Though

The always eloquent John Wayne has brought us some great words to live by. Wayne’s advice on how to live a happy, healthy, and fulfilling life is so moving that this gentleman decided that it belonged in a place where its wise words could echo into eternity- his high school yearbook.

yearbook
That Spelling, Though

This powerful commentary was included alongside two equally powerful senior photos. The only thing that could possibly strengthen this quote would be a quick spell check. Nicely done, yearbook editors.

That’s What She Quoted

Something tells us this kid might be a fan of The Office. Raunak Manandhar’s clever yearbook quote is a play on words inspired by one of Michael Scott’s favorite one-liners.

yearbook
That’s What She Quoted

While at first, it may be unclear or difficult to understand, anyone who’s seen the show will surely appreciate Raunak’s subtle and dry sense of humor. We’re just glad that Raunak decided against using a boring inspirational quote like most of his peers and went with something a little more entertaining.

Shake And Bake

These yearbook neighbors drew some inspiration from the famous Will Ferrel comedy film Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. As huge Ferrel fans, Anthony and William decided to get creative when they realized that their yearbook photos would be placed next to one another.

yearbook
Shake And Bake

The shake and bake duo of Ricky Bobby and Cal Naughton Jr. was the perfect starting point for this brilliant yearbook idea. It was definitely worth convincing the yearbook photographer to capture the notorious fist bump.

The Spam Folder

Well played, Segun. The best way to deal with sticking out in the crowd is to simply embrace your differences. Segun is the perfect example of this theory.

yearbook
The Spam Folder

When he first got his photo taken for the yearbook, he clearly understood that his name would stick out in a sea of typical American names like John Smith or Sam Thompson. So Segun Akigbogun decided to use his yearbook quote to acknowledge and embrace his Nigerian roots in the most hilarious way possible.

A Can-Do Attitude

Here is a student who simply can’t be brought down, no matter what. Despite the face that Yonosuke Shigeta’s 10th grade English teacher told him he’d never amount to anything, he continues to put his best foot forward and strive for excellence.

yearbook
A Can-Do Attitude

The ultimate secret to his success is his tunnel vision. Yunosuke has the unique ability to turn any negative feedback into a positive and beneficial learning experience. He is always putting his time and energy into what matters most.

Not A Typo

Carlos Carlos from the class of 2017 had a rough time in high school. “It wasn’t just hilarious because he had two first names, but also because both first names were the exact same name!” said class bully Chad Stevens.

yearbook
Not A Typo

“I honestly felt an obligation to pick on him for it.” Since his yearbook entry was published, Carlos has moved on to college, where he is still frequently ridiculed for his hilarious name. He has been contemplating legally changing his name.

The King Of The Dad Joke

Bumb Avkit always knew what to say to get his teachers laughing. However, his unique brand of puns didn’t sit as well with his fellow classmates.

yearbook
The King Of The Dad Joke

While they initially found his humor to be mildly entertaining, the novelty soon wore off and Avkit’s jokes were eventually received with sighs and scoffs rather than laughter and applause. Based on his pun game, However, Avkit may just have a long and successful career as a dad joke comedian in his near future.

Taking A Stand

Agboke Toluwalope decided to use her yearbook entry as an opportunity to stand up for African high school seniors all over the country.

yearbook
Taking A Stand

Agboke strongly believes that the number of syllables should not influence how badly the principal butchers a name when the time comes to walk across the stage and accept a diploma. Agboke just wants her school to recognize that not everyone grew up with easy to pronounce names like Jennifer Smith, Sarah Johnson, Tiffany Goldstein, or Jessica Thompson.

Silence The Doubters

Nothing feels better than proving someone wrong who thought you couldn’t succeed. However, it’s a little different when your very own mother was the one doubting you in the first place.

yearbook
Silence The Doubters

Mothers are supposed to believe in their children, no matter how ambitious their dreams may be. Let’s face it, graduating high school isn’t exactly the same thing as discovering a cure for cancer. We hope that Sofia continues to surprise her mother, along with anyone else who doubts her.

Ladies’ Man

Though he may not look the part, Keegan Large was the smoothest ladies’ man in his entire high school. He even won the superlatives of Class Flirt, Nicest Eyes, Most Likely To Succeed, and Best Hair.

yearbook
Ladies’ Man

Ever since his sophomore year, ladies were lining up to date MHS’s most eligible bachelor. Some of the teachers even admitted to having a crush on the charming and handsome student. For his yearbook entry, Keegan chose to use his very own motto as his quote.

Spellcheck Is There For A Reason

For those of you who may not be familiar with popular rap music, Gucci Mane is a popular figure in the world of hip-hop who rose to fame in the mid-2000s. Gucci Mane has certainly made a name for himself in the world of rap and hip-hop music.

yearbook
Spellcheck Is There For A Reason

But we’re not so sure he’s the best possible source for a yearbook quote. While other students went with quotes from Steve Jobs or Albert Einstein, Jared went with this poorly-spelled quote from his rap hero.

Shameless Self-Promotion

Marvin Biano has always strived to be the next big hip-hop superstar. Even though he graduated with honors, his heart has always been in his music.

yearbook
Shameless Self-Promotion

Rather than finding an inspirational quote which defined the four years he spent in high school, Biano decided to seize the opportunity and promote his latest mix tape. These days, it’s all about getting your music to reach as many people as possible. After all, you never know whose parent might be a big-time record executive.

Words Hurt

This student is sick of people calling her a dumb blonde and she wants her entire high school to know that she has had enough! Unfortunately, she must have gotten her words mixed up and ended up submitting this yearbook entry, which most likely did not help her cause.

yearbook
Words Hurt

Hopefully, she got a dictionary as a graduation present so she can look up the correct way to use “pet peeves.” Hopefully, she’ll be able to laugh about this hilarious mix-up one day.

Joanna’s Guide To Success

Joanna Clark has always been an overachiever. Her can-do attitude, high level of motivation, and all-or-nothing mentality have helped her come in third place back to back years at the state tennis tournament, finish high school in the middle of her class, and get into the safety school of her dreams.

yearbook
Joanna’s Guide To Success

In her acceptance speech for winning runner-up for best hair in her class’s senior superlatives, Joanna made sure to thank her parents, teachers, siblings, and “most importantly, Paris Hilton.”

Sharing A Private Moment

Everyone has their own relaxation methods. Who are we to judge Aaron Portillo for what he wants to do during his nightly bath time? What he wants to do within the confines of his tub is his business and his business only.

yearbook
Sharing A Private Moment

However, we have to admit that it is a bit concerning that he felt the need to share this strange part of his personal life with his entire high school. Some things are better kept to yourself, Aaron.

Wait For It…

When best friends Emily and Benjamin heard that their photos would be placed in the yearbook next to each other, they couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to share one of their favorite Barney Stinson quoted from How I Met Your Mother.

yearbook
Wait For It…

The only thing that would have made this yearbook entry more epic would have been the dramatic and suspenseful effect of needing to turn the page between each photo. We still think it came out pretty awesome though.

Use Your Emojination

James Royel is a high school senior who knows how to think outside the box. While most of his classmates went with boring words for their senior year yearbook quotes, James decided to get creative and express himself in a different way.

yearbook
Use Your Emojination

When making a statement, sometimes, words just don’t get the job done. Sometimes, if you want to truly add emphasis and evoke an emotional response, you need to add emoticons, also known as emojis, to your work.

Triple The Fun

Ever since they were little, the Durham triplets, Kassidy, Keaton, and Kylee, were always known for their hilarious shenanigans. They simply had a knack for comedy.

yearbook
Triple The Fun

In elementary school, their jokes became so distracting to other students, that teachers needed to physically separate them and place them in different classrooms. When it came time to select quotes for their yearbook, the entire school was expecting something big from the Durhams. They definitely did not disappoint with this hysterically cheesy knock-knock joke.

Quoting Yeezy

When it came time for Kelly to choose a yearbook quote, she decided to go with a quote from one of the greatest musical geniuses of our generation- Kanye West.

yearbook
Quoting Yeezy

While she could have quoted one of his many song lyrics that provide an astute social commentary on the politics of the 21st century, or maybe even one of his intelligent Tweets about family, she decided to go with this Kanye quote, which criticizes flight attendants for giving out unnecessary water bottles.

When You Put It That Way…

Jessica Enciso is truly an original thinker. In today’s world, we spend countless hours worrying about whether or not we’ll ever find that one special someone.

yearbook
When You Put It That Way…

We think about and stress over our potential loneliness so much that we miss out on valuable time which could be spent sleeping. With just one senior yearbook quote, Jessica unintentionally started a movement which urges men and women to spend more time sleeping and less time swiping. She then took to Twitter, tweeting, “#moresleeplessswipe.”

Keeping His Eye On The Prize

Will Faurot never let his eye patch get in the way of his love life. Over time, he learned how to use it to his advantage.

yearbook
Keeping His Eye On The Prize

When asked about it in an interview, Will said, “Girls were always quite curious about the eye patch, but they never knew how to ask me about it. Maybe they were worried I’d get offended. But once I started making jokes, it opened a whole new world of possibilities.” Will was voted “Class Ladies’ Man.”

Still Counts

Hannah Goldsborough learned a valuable lesson in high school. She learned that, as long as you finish something, it doesn’t matter how close you came to failure. The only thing that matters is that bullet point on your resume.

yearbook
Still Counts

When the time came for job interviews, Hannah only needed to explain that she graduated high school. She chose not to share that she “barely” graduated because that piece of information was not relevant. Her yearbook quote was a different story.

Just To Be Clear…

High school was tough for Alice, Kim, Theresa, and Vivian Nguyen. Every single student, and even most of the school faculty just assumed they were quadruplets without even thinking to ask.

yearbook
Just To Be Clear…

No matter how many times they attempted to get the point across that they weren’t sisters, nobody paid attention. They even went so far as to make an announcement over the loudspeaker after the Pledge of Allegiance. Hopefully, their classmates will finally understand that they aren’t quadruplets.

Life’s Not Fair

Sometimes, life is unfair. That’s what Aditya Tammana learned when he tried to stick it to the man with his yearbook quote which happened over the 100 character limit. Aditya truly believed that his voice was censored by the school’s harsh administration.

yearbook
Life’s Not Fair

Out of his frustration, he tried to lead a school-wide walk-out in protest. Unfortunately, the school year had already finished, and no one else showed up to protest alongside him during their last summer vacation before college.

An American Pastime

These two senior baseball players just can’t seem to remember their positions, so we will try to clarify. Will is the pitcher and Makenzie plays catcher. Or is Makenzie the catcher and Will the pitcher? Or do they switch off between the two positions?

yearbook
An American Pastime

Apparently, we also can’t recall who plays what. In either case, the baseball team finished with a state championship in their last high school season ever, so both Will and Makenzie came out on top.

Proof

Paulyn Trinh has always been the type of student to think ahead. She was already planning which colleges she would be applying to back in middle school.

yearbook
Proof

When it came time to choose a yearbook quote, Paulyn decided to use her yearbook entry to serve a different and unusual purpose. She wanted to have some proof for her future children that she was “hot back in high school.” As usual, Paulyn was thinking ahead, preparing herself for anything and everything.

Just A Lil’ Yearbook Joke

Lucky enough to have seats assigned in alphabetical order, Abbigail and Tory spent all of senior year sitting next to each other in first period, thanks to their shared last name.

yearbook
Just A Lil’ Yearbook Joke

Over the course of months, they weighed out their options and ultimately chose these powerful lyrics from the inspirational musician, Lil’ Jon. Not everyone understood their choice of yearbook quotes, but at least they could take their bond to college and beyond.

No Shame In The Game

Makenzie Goluba just wanted to clear the air. Following a series of false rumors that began circling her junior year, Makenzie just wanted all of her classmates to know the truth.

yearbook
No Shame In The Game

Rather than picking the typical yearbook quote, Makenzie decided to dismiss the rumors about herself and proclaim her love for food as well as her healthy eating habits. We sure hope that her classmates respect the courage it took her to face this issue head on, in the high school yearbook.

C’s Get Degrees

Hugh Vo is an athlete with his priorities in order. The All-American football player had an amazing high school athletic career and is hoping to make a big impact at the next level.

yearbook
C’s Get Degrees

While football will be a big part of Hugh’s new life in college, he understands that he is a student first and athlete second. That’s why he’ll be provided with the best tutor the university has to offer to take his tests and write his papers for him.
