Finding the perfect quote for your senior yearbook is a fine art. As a senior who’s about to leave high school in their rearview mirror, you have to either sum up your past four years or get the last laugh in less than two sentences. You could go the classic route and quote Dr. Seuss or Gandhi, but those might be better off as captions for your Instagram selfies. Over the years, yearbook quotes have gone viral for being less and less serious, what with quotes of YouTubers to carefully masked words figuratively translating to a middle finger. What better way to leave high school than with a bang?
If you didn’t get a superlative among your class, don’t fret. Take inspiration from these viral yearbook quotes so you too can come up with something people will remember you by.

Others poked fun at their ethnicity.
“Anything is possible when you sound Caucasian on the phone.”
“‘You’re an Asian, not a B-sian.’ – My dad.”
