High school yearbooks are not only meant for jocks and popular girls to brag about their dubious accomplishments but also for that quiet kid in your class to shine brightly with some hilarious quotes. Funny yearbook quotes, after all, are something to be remembered by.

When it comes to school yearbooks and writing that little senior quote next to your photo, it can be tough. It's just not always that easy to think of a good yearbook quote for all your classmates to remember you by when you can't even use the same amount of symbols for your cool quotes that are in a tweet. This is why sometimes the result can, later on, be embarrassing, hilarious, simply lame, or all of the above. But not for these kids, that is!

Below, Bored Panda has put together a list of people who have utterly slain the whole funny graduation quotes thing. We have sarcastic quotes, we have some savage quotes, and even some silly puns and high-class dad jokes. Whether these inscriptions were intentionally funny or not - they sure made us laugh! Keep on scrolling to take a look at the funny yearbook quotes, and don't forget to vote for your favorites. We also wouldn't mind at all if you'd share your own funny quotes when you had a chance to make your own!

How do you Come up With a Senior Yearbook Quote? 


If you’ve opened this article, chances are you’re looking for inspiration to come up with your own funny graduation quotes. And, scrolling through this list, you might’ve started to wonder how the people who came up with these senior quotes managed to do it so well! While we cannot be certain of their creative process, we can absolutely give you some pointers on how to come up with your own funny yearbook quotes. 

First off, decide on what type of senior quotes you are looking for: 

Once you’ve decided on the type, the next step is the content of your funny senior yearbook quotes. Here are some of the topics you might want to consider: 

  • A memorable moment at school;
  • A summary of your experience at school;
  • Obstacles you overcame;
  • Future plans;
  • An inside joke;
  • A well-wish for friends and teachers;
  • An entertaining quip. 

When you decide on both the type of the quote and the topic, keep your quote short, appropriate, and light, and remember – absolutely no cussing in yearbook quotes!

But most importantly – make a senior quote that reflects on you the best. And if you can’t be bothered about it, choose one of these funny yearbook quotes from our list. After all, they’re tried, tested, and hilarious.

How Important is a Senior Quote?

Before we try to understand the importance of a funny senior quote, you might even be wondering whether yearbooks really do have and require them in the first place. 

The short answer to that is yes, yearbooks absolutely still keep this fun and entertaining tradition. However, it is up to you to choose whether you’d like one next to your name and a photo of you or not. 

Now, you might also be wondering what the point of these funny senior quotes is and whether they are really so important. 

The long and short of it is - yes, absolutely, senior graduation quotes are very important. Not only because they are a long-standing tradition of any high school but also because leaving a personal note to remember you by is a beautiful way to immortalize your school years. 

No pressure, though!

What is a Good Quote for a Yearbook?

A question for the grand prize! To answer it, we decided to do a little research. Here’s how we did it: first, we took five of the best senior quotes as voted by our readers. Here they are: 

  • A got a haircut, and no one noticed (next to a photo of a girl in a headscarf);
  • High school was easy. It was like riding a bike. Except the bike was on fire & the ground was on fire & everything was on fire because it was hell;
  • The happier we get, the less we see #asian #life;
  • I’m that Nigerian Prince that keeps emailing you;
  • It's hard being a single mother, especially when you have no children and are a teenage male.

Then, we took a deeper look into these funny yearbook quotes and learned that: 

The best senior quotes are funny, use sarcasm or irony, are often self-reflective, and are always memorable!

So, if you were to keep these pointers in mind when thinking of your own memorable quote for a yearbook, you’ll be good to go!
