For the majority of students and teachers, their high school yearbook serves mostly as a repository for embarrassing pictures of their peers sporting ugly hairstyles, braces, or just plain old acne. Most yearbooks are basically filled with a few nice memories tucked away somewhere. But when it comes to a few genius students, the yearbook serves as a portal to endless possibilities. It's the ideal setting for letting their personality shine with the most hilarious phrases and poses. For some perfect yearbook quotes and jokes you will ever see, read on!
She Loves Canada
Well, all we can say is that this cANADa-loving girl should have maintained her posture because it's causing the writing on her shirt to appear much naughtier than it really is. In fact, it is purely bad luck that her posture made it look like she loves to make butt Jokes. Guess what everyone’s reaction was when they first saw this photo. The reaction of this girl’s parents must be…oh boy.
And hey, they wouldn’t have published the photo if it actually said what we read. Imagine how the school tried to make sense of it before approving the photo.
A Real-Life Hero
Hmm, we did not know Bruce Wayne left his lavish lifestyle and became a teacher. Perhaps he wanted to get to the root cause of all the crimes in Gotham and found that Geometry teacher Carol (the one on the top right) is responsible for organized crime in the city. Well, he is not hiding his identity anymore. So, we can assume that the Dark Knight has already defeated the villain.
And we don’t know what anyone else thinks, but we have a strong feeling that Carol has some sort of connection with the Joker. Does anyone agree with us on this one?
He Really Meant It
At first look, some names don't appear to be amusing. However, once we say them out loud, we quickly understand how ridiculous they are. For instance, there was a judge named Willie Stroker. There is a Chinese man named Chew Kok. Someone was named Dick Smalley. We are not done yet. There was someone named Jeremy Bakhole. And lastly, someone had the name Judy Graham Swallows (that sounds like an actor's name but not just an ordinary actor).
So, we can see why this boy named F. You brought smiles to our faces. Make use of these names the next time you make a reservation at a restaurant.
The Subtle Art of Expressing Your Disapproval
Hey, are you thinking what we are thinking? Is he the younger brother of the student F. You? Or maybe he saw F. You’s photo and decided to take it to the next level. We can assume that this kid didn’t want to be in the yearbook photo in the first place. When forced by his parents and even the teachers, maybe he said, “you are going to take my photo on my terms.”
We are pretty sure this kid has a bright future ahead of him. He seems to know how to show the middle finger without making it too obvious. We all need such control over our emotions.
Bromance At Its Finest
The two male teachers did something hilarious in the yearbook of a private Christian school in Glendora. It seems like a new way for the homeroom teachers to show their bromance to everyone. Those days are gone when yearbook photos of teachers looked boring and plain simple. They have a perfect shot, but we wonder whether they have planned this before doing it. It seems they have planned a harmless little prank.
How sophisticated all the teachers look! We can say one thing for sure: these two are the best buddies for life and they couldn’t even miss the fun in the yearbook pictures, which are actually supposed to look more professional.
The Most Unfortunate Name
That’s the real name, no joke. Most people are given pretty decent names when they're born. But sometimes, some have to deal with a bad hand from the moment they enter this world. They end up with a funny name that pretty much makes them a laughing stock wherever they go. So after hearing this person's name, one can only speculate as to what her parents were thinking at the time.
Or to put it another way, they were most likely not thinking hard enough. She also appears to be a lovely person, so we almost feel bad for her.
These Pictures Are Worth Way More Than a Thousand Words
This legend is clearly showing the world what it takes to be a dedicated person. He could have done so many things in life that others might have ignored, but he knew what would grab everyone's attention. We love this person because he is not only dedicated but also stubborn. You see, he tried not to change anything in the photos except for his age (which is obviously something we cannot control). He couldn’t get rid of that mustache for the sake of the gag.
If anyone is wondering who this person is, well, he is a retired teacher Dale Irby. He turned a mistake into a dare and took photos for 40 years. He said in an interview that he outgrew his outfit but kept it in the wardrobe and only took it out once a year for those yearbook photos.
The Smile Says It All
Okay, so we have a feeling that these two guys are very close friends who have done some pretty awesome stuff together. So, they thought why not make yearbook photos more interesting? We are glad they synchronized everything so perfectly. Perhaps they are thinking about the party they are going to attend or could be using telekinetic powers to communicate with each other. We’re not sure, so we’ll go with telekinetic powers.
One thing we know for sure is that true friendship is pure joy and a blessing. Plus, they look like so much fun to be around.
Blondes And Their Problems
Most of us have something in particular that really annoys the hell out of us and makes us crazy, and this senior student is no exception. She could have easily gotten offended and mad at so many things in life like quarantine, different strains of COVID-19, and even Johnny Depp and Amber Heard Case, but she decided to get mad when someone calls her a dumb blonde. It gets on her pet peeves!
Well, what can we say here? We have become so numb in the past few years that nothing makes us lose our minds anymore.
Is It A Deep Sea Diving School Yearbook Photo?
Now that is impressive. It must've taken them hours to figure this out. We are pretty sure these high school teachers really missed going on a vacation (thanks to COVID-19), and decided to recreate their memories in the yearbook. We must admit that they pretty much nailed it. But we are not sure about the fish type on the extreme left. We can see half of her face so we can’t say for sure.
We know for sure that these three grown-up people have found ways to make themselves happy. We should also think of creative ways to make seemingly dull things interesting.
Who Is Craving A Pancake Now?
We love how the guy on the left (Alexander) has a very inspirational quote, and the look on his face shows that he actually means it. And then we look at good boy Joseph, who doesn't care one bit about what Alexander just said. He just wants a good pancake, and we find nothing wrong in that. It seems like Joseph is friends with Alexander and knows how he tries to copy quotes from others.
We can assume that Joseph is one of those guys who just want to have a good time and doesn’t care what happens in the world.
The BEST Teacher Ever
"Today, we will learn how to chase cats and almost every other creature out there. And yes, please don't forget to tell me I'm a good boy after the class ends." Some would say this doggo looks like Brian from the sitcom Family Guy, but we have a strong feeling that it is just some ordinary dog trying to make a decent living. We don’t know about you guys, but we would love to be in that class.
Imagine how easy it would be for students to get good grades. They just need to give their teacher Mr. Woof some treats to get an A+.
Best of Luck Andy
Everyone deserves to be whatever their heart desires, and Andy is showing us that he just wants to be a fruit seller. We don't know why he explicitly wants to sell fruits at a busy intersection, but we feel he seems like a guy with a plan. Most importantly, he is not like most young kids who have no idea what to do for a living. He knows what he wants to do, and we wish him the best of luck.
We also appreciate the fact that Andy is not giving up on education. He seems determined, and we can feel his oozing positivity.
Fine, Sean, We See What You Did Here
Well, the girl on the left has made a valid point because life is relatively short. For instance, if someone gets to live for 72 years (which is the average life expectancy), they live 26,280 days or 630720 hours. So, we can understand what she meant there. Life is indeed short, and we need to make the best of it. We wish there were some time machine that could give us back these years we lost due to COVID-19.
However, Sean disagrees with her. Hey Sean, listen buddy, you’re too young to feel this way. Try entering adulthood before saying something like this, okay?
Making Friends With Snakes
These three took a photo for the ages. We can see that the guy in the middle is demonstrating his choices when it comes to making friends, and his pals are totally into what he's doing. We knew that a snakebite could kill a person, but we did not know the side effects included goofy facial expressions and a corny photo op. It is kind of cute though, you have to admit.
We have respect for these teachers for pulling it off. And yes, if anyone is thinking, the bald guy does look a lot like Bryan Cranston.
Someone Didn't Get The Memo
Well, the savage kid clearly looks like the president of the club. After all, who would have the guts to wear a t-shirt that says YES on a yearbook photo of Just Say No Club? Either he wants to make a statement, or he is clearly tired of saying NO all the time. Maybe the kid thought that saying No wasn’t always beneficial for him. For instance, he had to say No when his parents asked if he wanted a Christmas present.
We really want to know where this kid is today. Maybe he is the president of a club called Just Say Yes.
That's One Angry Pocket-Sized Human
We see how some people want to look different, and there is nothing wrong with it. Well, it doesn't hurt to smile once in a while, especially when it comes to high school yearbook photos. This guy in the middle sure looks angry, and we cannot put our finger on the real reason behind his not-so-friendly facial expression. Maybe it is because the photographer said they couldn't fit his hairstyle in the photo.
We think that maybe he is a big fan of rhinos. It would be best to never go into a jungle; poachers might shoot him for his valuable horn.
Well, well, well. What do we have here? It seems like a classic case of a man imitating a woman. Or maybe it is the other way around. We can’t say anything for sure. Some would say Teresa Kennedy wore a controversial Halloween costume for the yearbook photoshoot and we might even agree with them. We may never know the truth. Either Ben has something to do with this mishap, or Teresa never existed.
Ben seems like a decent guy, so we won’t call him an alien who clones itself. Who knows, maybe he is Agent Smith from The Matrix.
The Smile Says It All
Here is a statement from a kid who is very proud of whatever he's doing. Most readers must've quickly realized what is wrong with this picture, but we are going to act naive and clarify that his t-shirt says, "I came, I saw, I conquered." His devilish smile tells us a lot about his activities. For instance, we can bet that when this photo was taken, he had some magazines hidden somewhere in the house.
One thing we know for sure is that this kid wore the same t-shirt the next day after getting married. That’s all we can say about him right now.
The Pre-Planned Mustaches
Attention everyone! It is time to raise your mustaches. This yearbook photo of teachers shows us why and how the mustache fashion trend died. Facial hair has always been a trend for men, but by the 1970s, it slowly started to go out of style. Now, sideburns and mustaches are slowly making a comeback. After seeing these professors, we really don't understand why. And neither does the teacher in sunglasses!
Some might say that these professors look a lot like undercover police officers trying to bust a drug-dealing 13-year-old kid. Or they were just pulling a prank.
The Nguyen Mystery
The quotes beneath the photos collectively say, "We know what you are thinking and no, we are not related." Honestly, we didn't think they were related. It would have made some sense if they were part of some sorority, but that seems highly unlikely. Our wild guess is that they gathered all the girls with the surname Nguyen and told them their yearbook quotes were replaced with one clear message.
We have seen twins wear similar clothes and we find them really cute. It would be best if the Nguyen girls started doing the same
That's One Adorable Teacher
If anyone ever says getting an education is no fun, just show that person this picture. After all, who wouldn’t want to study when the teacher is such an adorable doggo. And what can we say about the other teacher who is giving us a funny yet somewhat creepy look. It seems like the doggo belongs to the teacher. If that is true, they make the best teacher team ever. We wouldn’t mind studying even if they teach math class; we would love to learn there.
And we think it is about time schools start recruiting cats as well. Just imagine a doggo and cat teaching in the same school.
Hmm, we know what Sean did here. Well executed, Sean! It seems like he knows what he is doing and we kind of agree with him. While there is nothing wrong with quoting Sex and The City, it looks like Stephanie couldn’t come up with an original quote and decided to copy one. Sean noticed an opportunity and grabbed it with both hands. We can say with 100% certainty that she had a word with Sean afterward.
Legend has it that Sean was never seen again. We have a theory that he went to Hollywood in hopes of convincing directors to make another Sex and The City show.
Yeah, Something Like That
We find it hilarious because this is how grandparents are when they have to use new technology. But we can relate to how he felt at that time. Alex was as clueless as we are during these times. He was as naive as most of us are about global warming. He was as answerless as we are about what came first: the egg or the chicken. We’re glad he finally found out how it worked.
We guess he might have to repeat high school for another quote. One wonders if Alex still asks questions like this one even today.
Spreading Truth One Quote at a Time
Here is someone who really knows and understands Santa Claus. Matt looks pretty confident, and that is why we are going to take his side on this one. After all, he seems pretty sure Santa Claus is black, and we don't want to argue with him. Who knows, maybe, he actually saw a black Santa Claus growing up. So, it would be best if we don't start a debate over his claims.
Given that Santa's ethnicity varies in the diverse USA, we cannot say if Matt is telling the truth or not. If it makes him happy, we are delighted.
Horses Got To Graduate Too
There is nothing wrong with this yearbook photo. After all, what is wrong with a horse trying to study and play baseball? One could argue that he is BoJack Horseman, but we strongly feel that he is just an ordinary horse who decided enough was enough and wanted to change his profession. We can feel how difficult it must’ve been for the horse to study among humans, so we have massive respect for him.
We wonder if anyone told this student to quit horsing around and take a normal yearbook photo. We are glad he didn’t listen to anyone.
Ah, This Poor Kid
We are speechless. We don't know what to say. Okay, let us give it a shot. He wouldn't have this name if his father had actually used a condom that day. Or maybe they actually named him Jesus Condom because the parents were tired of using condoms for so many years and finally wanted a baby. We feel for this kid. Seriously, just imagine how many students must’ve made fun of this poor kid.
On second thought, maybe it was a cruel joke or something. We really hope it is just for fun and no one has this horrible name.
She is Her Own Biggest Fan
Aww, poor Vincent Tabares. How kind and naive you are, unknowing that your colleague had been scheming all along to exploit you in a call for attention. The poor soul became a victim of a conflict he didn't realize he was in. As for you, Amanda Taggart, you are a genius. Note the usage of the winky emoji and that every word is capitalized, providing an impression of child-like naivety that only covers the actual intents underlying the phrases.
She has made Mr. Tabares feel down only to boost her self-confidence. That's one clever move.
Boys Can’t Argue With That
No, absolutely not. This statement is effective on so many levels: first and foremost, it is relevant. After all, who enjoys the tedious and killing process of getting out of bed in the morning? That's right, there's no one. Second, it's amusing: most people, given they are adults, will read this and get a good laugh as a result of it. Third, and maybe most importantly for a teenage male, it will subtly arouse interest in their particular interests among others around them
He's a cunning young man. We strongly suspect that this young man will most likely kill at a comedy club.
His Smirk Says It All
William Beckett, please keep your smirk to yourself! Obviously, your yearbook remark is fantastic. But how did you come up with such a gem? Although this is wrong, it is amusing and will remain in our minds for a long time. Many of our readers are going to read this, and they are going to respond in a particular manner. The audience may laugh, grumble, or roll their eyes, but they are reading what you've said.
Our readers' memories will be of William Beckett and his forthright comments, which will very probably prohibit him from being hired by the clergy.
After All, This is Not Hogwarts
Everyone needs a strong sense of humor, and it appears that Ms. Elkheir possesses an exceptional (and excessive amount of) sense of humor. Not everyone would be able to deal with whatever repeated statements sparked this phrase with a lovely grin and a yearbook quotation that is immaculately balanced between respectful and sharp, to put it another way. A single line of 12-point writing is all that is required to put inquisitive aggravators in their place, and she has demonstrated flawless class and grace throughout her life.
We think this is the best way to deal with anything that annoys us in life. Instead of being offensive, we can take a sarcastic route to make others reconsider their actions or words.
Brother From Another Mother
Only the most brilliant brains would conceive of using something as harmless as a yearbook to present a straightforward and confusing contradiction in the same way as this one. Can you picture the thinking process that went into creating this masterpiece? Two closest friends sat across from one other, debating what they should write in their final yearbook. Should they pursue the inspiring route? Well, one of them came up with the best plan.
They decided to use two quotes that are both superficially simple and stunningly complicated in a way that everyone who reads them will have their brains melt. This is just great.
Sometimes, It’s Better To Keep Your Thoughts To Yourself
A yearbook quotation can refer to a variety of things. It has the potential to be inspiring. It has the potential to be amusing. It may be a matter of personal preference. Alternatively, like in the instance of Mr. Portillo, it can be really, extremely weird. Perhaps, he has never allowed anyone to get close to him; maybe he viewed the yearbook as an opportunity. Another possibility is that he had given an image of himself that wasn't entirely accurate; the Aaron Portillo that his peers were familiar with was nothing more than a deception.
Perhaps this yearbook quote provided him with an opportunity to display his soul. Nonetheless, he's doing a fantastic job.
We Need This Guy's Confidence
This youngster is totally crushing it, and all it takes is one glance at his expression to realize this is true. Just take a look at that smirk! He's well aware that he's possibly the coolest child on the face of the planet. It takes a lot of courage to claim the words of Queen Gretchen Wieners as your own, but wow, does this child have a lot of guts.
Richard Gray, here are the six most important words for you: Sky’s the limit for you. Just never lose this confidence in life, and you’re good to go.
He Was Meant To Be An Actor
Who knew Darren Everett Criss would end up in the movies someday. Well, the star of Girl Most Likely and Glee meant it when he wrote, "AARRHHHHUNNNGH!!!" What matters, though, is the quotation and more significantly, the sound effect that was used to deliver it. Chewbacca, the courageous Wookiee warrior, is an excellent source of motivation for youngsters. He put everything on the line, traveling the galaxy and confronting dark forces everywhere.
This person had a lot of courage and had an incredible ability to stick to his convictions. WOW, it is very inspiring.
He Knew How To Beat The System
A single look at Karl Timothy Mangune's dead-eyed expression is all you need to see to know that he is finished. We can see that he has been through enough already. He has experienced four years of whatever specific hell his school has thrown at him, and he has reached the point where he is unable to find the words to describe his thoughts. As a result, he has decided to mock them instead.
Rather than offering any kind of wisdom, even in the form of a silly little statement, he has launched a sarcasm bomb that is just perfect.
Say Cheese As It'll Be Your Last Day!
It looks like teachers who don’t keep their hands to themselves. We are wondering what both of them are up to! We understand that sometimes people do something unintentionally and end up making the picture funny, but this pre-planned picture is way more exciting and funnier than 99% of teachers’ yearbook photos. Applaud for the photographer for capturing it so perfectly and don’t forget about the one who placed them in a way they were meant to be!
They seem like best friends in real life who love to do mischievous activities even after becoming teachers. Or maybe they don’t like each other at all, and they can’t do anything for real, so they ended up doing a visualization of killing each other in the yearbook photo.
Backstabbing Twin Brother
There are 2 kinds of people in the world: the good and the bad. Among those who have shown gratitude to their loved ones and friends is Andrews. They are kind and honest, but they are all too easily deceived by the Adams and won’t do anything about it. In fact, the Adams will put a dagger into the backs of their most cherished people while simultaneously presenting their radiant personalities to the world.
For this reason, while Andrew was expressing his gratitude to his brother, Adam found the best time to stab his brother in the back.
Monday Mornings Be Like
We can see the kid on the right had a bad morning. We feel for him because this is how most of us are when we get up in the morning. It got worse during the COVID-19 since we slept with a face like him and woke up similarly. Nothing has changed so far, and it hurts so badly. At least he didn’t say no when they were taking the photo, so we have to give him some credit for trying.
But we think he should join that Just Say No Club. He should be a real president of that club. What do you guys think about it?
He Means Business
We can see that Kevin Chang knows what he wants in life. He is tired of failing, so now his whole life mission is to ensure everyone else fails too. After all, there will be no losers if there are no winners. In a way, his approach to life makes a lot of sense. He wants a world where everyone is equal. We kind of have a feeling that he has an evil plan for the world.
We also feel that he might create a club similar to Just Say No Club called “No Winners Here.” Yeah, that would be a big hit.
The Staring Contest
This professor is in a staring war with his bird, and we can see he is determined to win it. He seems more determined than anyone else in the world. We are pretty sure Kevin Chang from the previous photo wants both (the professor and the bird) to lose. We have a feeling that he starts a stare content with everyone, even the students. While the bird seems unfazed, it won’t be too long before it cracks under pressure.
Legend has it that he has made every student in school uncomfortable with his power of staring.
This Living Legend
If someone intends to use a quote, it would be best to double-check the source's authenticity. The reason for this is that we are very certain Martin Luther King Jr. never said such things. This is something he might have said about any other food, but not about tacos. However, we still find it the best yearbook quote ever. He knew what he was doing and what we love is the confidence with which he said it.
We just hope he never becomes a politician because he will misquote many things in life. We hope it never happens.
He Must Be A Cyber-Crime Teacher
Here is the best teacher ever. He deserves an award for The Most Coolest Teacher In The World. We are not sure if he is actually a cybercrime teacher who wants others to know about how to prevent cybercrime and identity theft or maybe he is a big friend of Pirates of Caribbean. After all, he looks like an actor in a B-grade Pirates movie. We honestly thought we were looking at Johnny Depp here.
And hey, is anyone following Amber Heard and Johnny Depp's case? One thing we know for sure is that this teacher is rooting for Johnny Depp.
May The Force Be With The Science Department
What can a person do if he teaches science but is a big fan of Star Wars? Instead of waiting for Halloween or some event to showcase your love for the franchise, why not use a yearbook photoshoot. Well, this teacher grabbed the chance with his head and used a Stormtrooper mask without any worry in the world. That’s the way to do it, and we are pretty impressed by it.
He loves Star Wars and isn’t shy about showing it to the world. We’re just glad he is not a fan of Chewbacca.
What Did That School Do To Him?
It seems quite a hilarious way of clicking school ID card pictures that may help people laugh and wonder about the back-story. It looks funny and somewhat frightening as well. Gabe Parez must be a bright student as the pictures surely imply his success story that he didn’t drop out. He is jumping out of joy in the yearly upcoming yearbook photos. Surely he must be excited about what lies ahead of him.
Or the school must have done something really bad to him as the name indicates HUNTINGton High School. Perhaps he’s just trying to imitate the evil logo on his ID card, and we can say for sure that he got pretty successful over the years.
