About

High School Senior Yearbook Quotes are select quotations or mottos chosen by the students of the graduating class to be displayed underneath their photographs in the high school yearbook. On the Internet, scanned images of funny or odd yearbook quotes are shared via social networking and internet humor sites on a regular basis, most notably during May and December at the end of an academic year.

The earliest known collection of humorous yearbook quotes posted online was in an Angelfire[6] website titled “Weird Yearbook Sayings,” which was created as early as February 2002 according to Google search results.[7]
