Oh, those good old golden school days. Sure, we all went there to “learn” but what we really liked to do was find the little ways that we could give our teachers and parents grey hairs. Like completely ruining a school picture.
These kids absolutely took home the gold in hilarious school photos. They definitely beat your standard “hand on chin turn your shoulders 45 degrees” cookie-cutter photos we’re used to seeing. Hopefully, these parents found them funny enough to spend the $36 on the photos.
The Kids From Northfarmington High School Nailed It
The staff at Northfarmington high school in Michigan had a tradition of letting their senior students dress up for their school photos. In 2018, every single one of these seniors took that promise to heart and did not disappoint. Yer a senior, Harry.
You’ll Float Too, Georgie
This student decided to really play on our fears of an old classic here. Not sure why her favorite character is the first one who bites the bullet in the book, but as long as she stays away from sewer drains and the circus I have no complaints.
Let’s Paint Some Happy Little Trees And Some Student Fees
I’m getting relaxed just looking at this one. If only all school art classes were taught by the zen-master himself, Bob Ross. Just listening to him tell you about “happy accidents” would be incentive enough not to skip.
Party On Wayne, Party On Garth
These two students are trying to make it big all from the comfort of their parent’s basement and a dirty old couch. Oh, ex-squeeze me, professional television studio. Hopefully, this time it doesn’t burn down.
Identity Theft May Not Be A Joke, But This Photo Is Hilarious
This is a classic Jim move to pull—dressing up like Dwight on picture day just so he can really steal his identity. In fact, it’s so spot on that I’m pretty much convinced this student is actually Jim just really well disguised. Bold move, Halpert.
You’ll Get A Kick Out Of This One
I’m not sure what moment in pop culture someone’s foot was the star, but you know what? This photo is definitely starting off the year on the right foot and accurately covering up the fact this student forgot their costume.
This Senior Doesn’t Even Go Here
This student will not be getting pregnant or dying, figuring out any of the secrets in Gretchen’s big hair, and above all else, not going on a cranberry cocktail cleanse. Why? Because he doesn’t even go here.
This Senior Has 11 Herbs, Spices, And Classes
The Colonel is looking youthful and 3D these days. It must be because of the secret blend of all those spices. Come on, don’t let it get under your chicken skin, just tell us what’s in the recipe.
Aren’t You A Little Short For A Senior?
Not to Leia on the puns too thick, but I think by dressing up like the princess you’re kind of Fisher for them. Hopefully, someone dressed up as Chewie and the two of them spent the day calling each other “walking carpets” because that would just be next-level epic.
Everyone Hates Meg (But Not This Student)
It’s hard being Meg, especially when you’re surrounded by arguably the world’s most insane family. This student really took on the burden of being the only normal character… hopefully, her brother isn’t trying to off their mom like he does in the show.
I’m Sure Their Real Bus Isn’t Nearly As Magic
This is one hopeful student who probably wanted to dress for the job she wanted, not the job she had. And if that meant dressing up as Ms. Frizzle to try and manifest a less-depressing ride to school then so be it.
This Student Got And “A” In Politics As Ruth Bader Ginsburg
The court is in session and I rule that this school ID photo is as reformative as it is gut-bustlingly hilarious. Not to judge or anything, but I think this costume delivered the justice we needed today.
This Anchorman Definitely Did The Morning Announcements
Oh Brick, this meteorologist really was everyone’s favorite part of Anchorman. Even though he’s got an IQ of 48 he’s never been late for work in his life and he enjoys a good pair of slacks. Makes sense that his plotline ended with him becoming a political advisor.
Legally Blonde And Graduating
Bruiser and Elle may have gone to Harvard, but they obviously had to go to high school before any of that. Thanks to them, the legal system has never known so much about perm haircare.
Let’s Get Rowdy… Without Running In The Hallways Of Course
This student is an impressive Judo Olympian, WWE and MMA champion, and has starred in many movies. We would ask her how she’s got the time for all these achievements on top of school, but we don’t want her to get rowdy.
“But What If I Don’t Want To Be A Shoe, What If I Want To Be A Purse, Or A Hat!”
This might be Rachel’s most memorable phonecall on the serious because she takes great lengths to explain the whole metaphor thing to her dad—who doesn’t understand obviously. Cheer up Rachel, at least Ross understands enough to say something annoying about it in response.
This One Gave Me A Hangover
Ah, the wealthy and prosperous Mr. Chow. When he’s not in the back of vehicles or partying with the likes of Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper, and Zach Galifianakis, he’s going back to school to get his degree. Even millionaires need a high school education.
Captain Jack Skipping Class
Seems like there’s no more rum here, and an abundance of classes and tests that you know Captain Jack isn’t going to want to take. I’m sure he’d rather just wait for the Black Pearl to pick him up from the fast-food place down the road where he’s hiding out instead of going to class.
Your Friendly Neighborhood High Schooler
We all know poor spidey as the high schooler with a big secret. But it’s good to see that he’s out here being his true arachnid man self on picture day for everyone to see. Was that the bell for class or was that my spidey-senses tingling?
Miranda Sings And Graduates High School
Popular YouTuber Miranda Sings practically wrote the book on being creative on the internet. She’s here to sing and show the haterz what she’s made of. And what she’s made of is about 10% red lipstick.
She Brought Her Old Look Back
You know the old saying, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it?” She saw how great her look was back in the day and knew enough to keep that gravy train rolling with the same shirt, hair, and extraordinarily uncomfortable expression.
This Kid Changed His Name Just In Time For Picture Day
Jaffar Fromaladdin is looking non-evil today on picture day. Maybe he finally got the wishes he was asking for, or maybe he finally gave up on trying to rule the kingdom and focused on bettering himself. Start with getting an A in calculus this year.
This Kid Showed Up In A Hotdog Costume For School Photos
If you have an inch, take a foot-long. That’s what Jake Arsenault and his parents did on the morning of picture day since he couldn’t decide what to wear so his mom jokingly suggested a “hotdog costume.” Which… wasn’t a bad idea?
The Kid That Anticipated His School’s Photoshop
Make the most of your senior experience and the weird student cards your school gives you with the logo and mascot printed on them. This student is clearly doing both since he’s anticipating the absolute ferocity of the photoshopped wolf he knows his school is going to include.
“Where Is My Super-ID?”
You can’t leave the house without your super suit and you know you can’t leave without your super school ID, keys, and wallet. It’s part of the essentials and you don’t have the time to be patting down your pockets searching for them while a millionaire crushes your town with a giant robot.
The Guy Came Out Of Prison And Back To Life To Go To High School
I’m not sure how this kid got away with doing this one. But if this was his actual name I’d be shocked if he wasn’t the most popular guy in the school with people constantly texting him and had “entrepreneur” written in his Instagram bio.
The Guy On His Way To Pay His Student Debt
When it’s payday and your boss gives you all one-dollar bills, you know you’ve got to capitalize on the situation and bring that fat stack to the school photo. That, and switch jobs to something less sketchy.
It’s A Beautiful Day In The Picture Studio
We all loved Mr. Rogers and were sad to see him go, but it’s good to see he’s got fans at a high school. They might not be the demographic that his show was aiming for, but it’s never too late to learn about sharing and caring.
These Friends Memorialized Haramabe In School Photos
Remember that old Harambe meme that was ravaging the internet a few years ago so much that people even voted for the deceased gorilla for president? Well, now that particular chapter of human history is once again immortalized by these school IDs and I don’t know how to feel.
This Guy’s Ready To Fight
If I was the photographer I’d be soiling my pants at this student just fully screaming at me holding nunchucks. This guy is here to do business, avenge his fallen friends, defeat a couple of rogue ninjas, and make it on time to P.E. while doing it. Bravo.
