Yikes, this is a rough one. The young lad surely used a can full of hairspray to craft the perfect yearbook picture. The only problem is that hairstyle resembles that of a housewife from the mid-1980’s.

There’s nothing pleasant about this picture. We’ll cut the young boy some slack. Maybe he hasn’t been able to grow into his smile yet. Let’s hope he’s now able to look back at this photo and have a good laugh.

Zachary, we appreciate your humor. It’s always great when someone is able to capitalize on a platform in order to entertain others. We don’t know where Zachary is now — though it wouldn’t surprise us if he’s a stand-up comedian somewhere.

Ah, the ’80s. Among its idiosyncratic quirks, the decade is known for loud clothing and gigantic hair. As we see here, this girl appears to be going for the “make my hair look like a waterfall though I’m equally as skeptical” look.

Like millions across the globe, we all wish we had the opportunity to grace the halls of Hogwarts. Based upon Damenian’s message, it appears as if he was a fan of Voldemort over Dumbledore.

This young chap certainly has a satirical sense of humor. He’s also got a great one — considering he’s quoting one of the best fictional television characters (Michael Scott) from the last 20 years. Steve Carrell should congratulate this kid with some Dunder Mifflin gear.

Michael Wilson doesn’t beat around the bush. As straight a shooter as his intense look would suggest, Wilson offers unsolicited advice to anyone who happens to come across his yearbook picture. In the words of many, “Fake it ’till you make it.”

We don’t know exactly when this picture was taken. However, if we had to make a guess, we’d say it occurred during the height of Elton John’s popularity. Many around the world continue to imitate John’s fantastic music ability. Instead of following in those footsteps, this girl simply tried to imitate his eclectic look.

Keegan simply screams sophistication. He’s looking fresh with the trendy eyeglasses, blue sweater, and button down combo. Even more than that, he’s a ‘woke’ poet. Good on you, Keegan.

We feel for this guy. There have been many moments in which you’re forced to do something you don’t want to do. In this instance, the kid looks like he’s not only in massive pain, but also blinded by those ridiculously bright lights they use upon snapping the picture.

At least Emily is being honest. Many of us hide behind various social media accounts as to not fully divulge our true personas. We’re shocked Emily didn’t include her Instagram or Twitter handles.

There’s a lot of ‘bold’ in this picture. The tie-dye shirt is certainly impressive — as is the abnormally large yet still appropriate chain. Where we’re having some trouble is the chosen hairstyle. While creative in its own right, it appears as if vines are sprouting out of this dude’s forehead. To each their own, we suppose.

Well…there are a few theories for this picture. In one case, the student may have not been posed properly for the shot. Additionally, he may have been mid-sneeze as the shot was taken. Regardless, he gets some major kudos for that quilt-like shirt. We’re guessing a great aunt knitted that for him as a Christmas present.

’90s and early 2000’s kids are quite familiar with the phenomenon of Airheads. The elongated taffy came in all sorts of colors, and was a heavy staple within the candy game during this time. As for this guy, he decided to incorporate Airheads into his hairstyle. At the very least, he became the most popular kid in school.

Well, we’ll go out on a limb and assume that this girl is a huge fan of The Cure. Either that, or the Grunge Era impacted her in a big way. We aren’t quite sure how to categorize this hairstyle — though it’s wildly captivating all the same.

The story behind this one is rather simple. Forgetting to set his alarm, this guy rolled out of bed, made himself a pop tart, hopped on his long board, and headed for school. Halfway to campus, he only then realized that picture day was that morning. Invariably, he also forgot to comb his hair.

The picture really speaks for itself. Credit the girls for coming up with a hilarious bit of teamwork to pull off a funny joke.

Raunak was certainly ahead of his time. Using this quote platform, he pulled off what a classic comeback in a subtle way.

There’s a lot to unpack with this one. For one, the mullet is immaculate. From the flowing length to the slicked back top, we salute this guy for channeling his inner Joe Dirt. The ‘stache would make Tom Selleck jealous. Additionally, we must applaud the pensive yet seemingly distressed look on his face. Is he looking into a future filled with denim? Or, is he secretly a model preparing for life on the runway? We hope it’s the latter.

There’s so much to love about this picture. The girl in question is certainly going full bore into her ’80s fandom. The dedication is much appreciated. From there, she’s also giving the camera person the look of “These really don’t come wallet size?”

The Brady Bunch — one of the most iconic sitcoms of all-time — came out in 1969. Around the same time, this young girl had her picture taken for the school year. By the looks of it, she idolized the Brady’s housekeeper, Alice.

Yunosuke Shigeta is a man of many talents. Involved in both student government and the wrestling team, many would even call Yunosuke a well-rounded individual. By the looks of his Yearbook quote, he’s also clearly a master motivator.

There’s something to be said about someone who can poke fun at themselves. Even more respect is earned when that person can be honest and refreshing at the same time. Katia Perez seemingly has hit on both counts.

Have you also been getting emails from the Nigerian prince promising you millions? Well, don’t open that bank account just yet. According to Segun, he’s the real culprit behind the Nigerian Prince money-making scheme.

*We don’t actually think Segun is the mastermind behind the Nigerian Prince money-making scheme.

This might be the most fantastic picture ever captured on film. For one, the teen exudes crazy levels of charisma. Laying his head upon his flexed hand is a nice touch — as are the garish earrings. Plus…we must give him props for the hairstyle. Few are capable of pulling that off.

Stephanie essentially admitted that she never once opened a book during her high school career. Can’t say we blame you, Steph. Search engines everywhere are the lifeblood that fuels the hearts of academic champions.

As we talked about previously, we have tons of respect for anyone that’s willing to poke fun at themselves. This high school senior certainly feels the same way. At the very worst, he’d be excellent whenever needing to uncover gossip from down the hall.

Another Harry Potter reference! We simply cannot get enough of those. This girl is supremely clever by combining her usage of a hijab with an absolutely awesome pop culture reference. Let’s just hope Voldemort really isn’t setting up shop on the back of her head. We’d guess that’d be rather uncomfortable to deal with (especially for those with a lightning bolt scar on their forehead).

There’s nothing outrageous about this yearbook photo. We’re looking at a chubby, yet jovial child as he shows off his clearly ’80s eyeglasses. As we delve deeper into his celebrity background, we’ve come to find out that this young boy is indeed media personality Ryan Seacrest.

We’re jealous of this guy for so many reasons. The bravado and gravitas emanating from this photo is top-notch. We’ve got a distinguished fellow not bashful about showcasing his mullet/mustache combo for all to see. In a word, breathtaking.

The individual in this picture may have had one cup of coffee too many before preparing for his yearbook photo. We do recognize the intensity…but it may be best served to save that for the field. The theory also exists that the man is trying to channel his inner Superman by blasting laser beams out of his eyes. We’re hoping he’s mastered the art in the present time.

Is there a better way to show camaraderie next to your ‘yearbook picture buddy’ than by sharing a foot-long sandwich? These two gents decided to make great usage of the Subway delight by utilizing it in a picture which will last until the end of time. The question then persists: Is this a product placement ploy by Subway?

We have no idea what’s going on in this picture. We’re feeling equal parts unnerved and intrigued all at the same time. Maybe this person came from some sort of performance, and thus didn’t have time to change. Either that…or they’re going for a very ‘out-there’ look.

An informative and illuminating quote, student Pareekshit wanted to clear up any misconceptions over how his first name is pronounced. He certainly wasn’t dealt the best of hands with that unique first name. He may be better off just switching the order of his first and surnames. “Ravi” has a nice ring to it.

In recent years, many students have taken the opportunity to come forth with their previously hidden sexual orientations. For Caitlyn, Adam, and Perry, each used poignant sentiments to announce their ‘coming out of the closet’ to the world. Credit Perry for using a quote involving art (which obviously must mean he’s related to Pablo).

This picture is the pièce de résistance. We completely respect the choice to wear a full suit for a school picture. The cat offers much in the way of cuteness, and the flying lasers give the picture a more dynamic feel. Not only that, but the accent of the cat’s startled expression only makes us love the picture more.
