High school can be a formative experience as you learn the skills that you need to excel as an adult. With that being said, many of us wish that we could leave behind more than a few of our old school memories. Well, if you wished to forget your yearbook photo, you’ve come to the wrong place. Today, we are going to flip the pages of the Internet’s Yearbook in order to laugh at 40 of the most hysterical yearbook photos ever printed. Let’s dig in!
Smile For The Camera
Every class had that kid who didn’t take anything seriously. Well, here we get a chance to laugh at one of those kids. When the poor photographer told him to smile for the picture, he surely didn’t expect to see this. Still, we have to admire the kid’s dedication to being goofy. You do you, kid.
Do You Think This Is A Game
Every single comic book has a villain origin story, right? Well, this picture is definitely giving us some strong super villain vibes. We are, of course, talking about the cat. What did this frustrated kitty grow up to become? Did he ever get that purple bowtie off? Did the young man holding him get the scratching of a lifetime?
Share Your Passions
…. But not like this. There’s nothing wrong with being a devoted sci-fi fan. In fact, being into science fiction is actually popular nowadays. Unfortunately, this young space fan was probably into science fiction before it was cool. Sick costume, though.
Homer Simpson’s Soul Mate
So, we have two comments to make about this incredible yearbook picture. First, we’re not sure that Eden Dranger is a real name. How could a name that cool be real? Second, is Eden related to Homer Simpson? Did she help write ‘The Simpsons’? Does Matt Groening need to meet her?
I Only See Darkness
If you were a kid in the early ’00s, you likely went through your own goth or punk face. Teenage rebellion is cool, right? Unfortunately, this guy took the fashion trend a little too far. C’mon man, how can you embrace your teenage rebellion when you can’t even see?!
Oh, Nice To Meet You
Listen, we’re not going to judge anyone for their tattoos. Okay, we take that back. We’re going to judge this lady just a little bit. We’re all for a little bit of youthful anarchy, but pasting the symbol in the middle of your face seems to be going a little far.
Original Gamer Girl
One of the most iconic lines in gaming history is literally just, “Hyaaaah!” If Suzanne isn’t streaming herself playing video games on Twitch, the world isn’t a fair place.
13 or 30
Every generation believes that they have better style than their predecessors. With this young fella, we’re pretty sure he’s wrong. We’re getting strong ’70s vibes here, but we’re not sure if this is a Yearbook photo or a headshot for the new Magnum P.I. reboot.
He Likes To Party
We are not above making fun of bad hairstyles. Of course, we have our own history of terrible hairstyles, too. With that being said, there is a special level of ‘What’ going on with this young gentleman’s fashion sense. Tie-dye shirt? Okay, I dig it. Giant glasses? That’s cool, too. Bowl cut to mullet-rat-tail, well, that’s something else entirely.
Tell Us How You Really Feel
This incredible picture manages to sum up our youth in its entirety. We are here. We are kind of dressed appropriately. We’re not happy about it. Just take the picture. Wait, that doesn’t just sum up our youth. That sums up adulthood, too.
Wait, That’s Illegal
Would YOU take a bullet for your best friend? Well, we hope this guy isn’t your best buddy. He’s pretty clear about his priorities. While his priorities are kind of whack, we respect the honesty. Still, this dude has had his bro-card permanently revoked.
For once, a yearbook photo isn’t hilarious because of what the subject did. Instead, we are going to have to lob some hate toward the editor that put the book together. We have to assume that this young man is wearing an Eagles shirt. Otherwise, he probably got kicked out of school with a quickness. We hope.
Do Sean and Stephanie have a thing? Are they siblings? Is Sean on the Yearbook committee? Is this all playful banter? The world needs to know! For what it is worth, we’re pretty firmly on Team Stephanie. Who doesn’t love quoting ‘Sex and the City’?
Who Mad Her Mad
This little girl can’t be more than six or seven years old. What on earth could she possibly be so upset about? Did someone spoil the ending of her favorite cartoon? Did the cafeteria run out of ice cream? Does she hate the bow tie? We need answers, people, and we need them now! She looks like she is ready to blow up the planet!
Andrew Son of Arathorn
In other news, the ‘Lord of the Rings’ book club is getting a little bit out of hand. He’s wearing a full face helmet and what looks to be a sword over his shoulder. In what world would a student be allowed to bring a blade to school? Though, we did notice his massive beard. Wait, is this a teacher? Nevermind, we need to enroll in his class. Be right back.
Oh, Our Bad
Poor Pareekshit probably had to endure years of bullying because of his name. Which is ridiculous and absurd. It can be hard for people with non-Westernized names to fit in at school. Do your part to improve the environment and be respectful. Still, Pareekshit, you might have mentioned that the ‘s’ was silent sooner.
Slow Motion Alien Abduction
At first glance, you might assume that this is a rebellious punk rocker posing for her school portrait. However, if you look closely, you’ll notice that she is slowly being abducted by aliens. You know, because of the hair. We’d call this joke ‘low hanging fruit’, but her hair is eight feet in the air.
Genius or Not, You Decide
With thoughts like these, Bradley might have been ahead of his time. We like to imagine that young Brad is now an old and wizened Bradley, sharing philosophical thoughts on Twitter with his handful of followers. Or maybe he isn’t a deep thinker and was actually into the devil’s lettuce. Who can say?
Connor is the human personification of the phrase, “I don’t know, you decide.” It’s your high school yearbook man, take a moment to come up with something witty. Or funny. Or, well, just come up with something. Wait, what if this was his quote? What if this was all intentional? Is Connor secretly a genius? What are we doing with our lives?
The Name Is Snake
Before Snake Plissken Escaped From New York, he went undercover at a small high-school. Unfortunately, this film never aired and this is the only surviving image of its existence. Yes, we are lying. Yes, we think this should be a movie idea, too. No, we won’t write it.
Random Drug Search
Marijuana acceptance in the United States is currently reaching an all-time high. Yes, we are aware that that was a pun. No, we aren’t going to apologize for it. Still, this is clearly an old photo. So, we’re sure that Dwayne was hit with more than his fair share of totally random drug searches at his locker. He should be okay, it looks like he smoked it all before he went to school, anyway.
This Is Not A Phase
High school is the perfect time to experiment with your identity. You can try out different clothing, different friends, and even different extracurricular activity. Eventually, most students tend to gravitate back toward the middle of mainstream society. Jeffrey Steininger? We’ve got no idea. Hopefully, he’s still out there rocking this A.F.I.-inspired hair, though.
Born For Corporate Leadership
We are a firm believer in Ghengis Khan’s approach to leadership and, apparently, so is Kevin Chang. Chang seems like the kind of guy that would burn down the warehouse of his competition in order to secure a huge deal for corporate. He’s pretty hardcore.
Have you ever seen a haircut that made you audibly groan? Now, we aren’t saying that we are the sole judge of style, but come on. We’re not quite sure what is going on here or how it was ever accomplished. This is a bowl cut that has managed to turn into some kind of mom-inspired pompadour.
A Truly Refined Gentleman
There’s not much that can be said about Scott Myers. He teaches. He likes pipes. He likes tobacco. So, naturally, he got the biggest pipe filled with tobacco that he could. Then, Scott brought that pipe to school. Listen, we don’t get it either. It was a different world back then. Just nod and keep walking.
Change Your Curtains
In all of our years personally evaluating the worst haircuts to ever grace the internet, this might be a winner. Now, we know what you’re thinking, this is actually a stylish haircut, right? After all, he even dyed his hair to match the shirt that he chose to wear for this picture that would last forever. Wait, that doesn’t make it stylish? That just makes this photo even more confusingly bad?
His Power Level Is Over 9,000!
We have to assume that students were allowed to dress up for their yearbook. What we don’t understand is why this kid chose Frieza. You have an entire world of amazing characters, yet you pick the coolest villain in Dragonball history. Wait, nevermind. We totally get why you chose Frieza. Represent.
Andrew Drops Some Wisdom
Career Day is supposed to give students the chance to get a taste for what life has in store in the working world. Unfortunately, Andrew Kinney didn’t really like what he saw. In a weird way, maybe Andrew took the most valuable lesson of all from the experience. Work sucks, so get rich and retire while you are young. We don’t know how to do it either, but the advice sounds legit.
Dealing In The Yearbook
We would never claim to know how to deal drugs. We’re probably the last person you want to ask for dealing advice. With that being said, selling weed in front of your Yearbook photographer has got to be one of the worst ideas in the world. They had to know this picture was being taken, right? Right?
Teachers Acting Extra
We love teachers that go above and beyond in order to have fun with their students. Jack, Joshua, and Kimberly — keep doing you. There’s a special kind of corniness that teachers are allowed to exhibit and these biology teachers found just the right way to show it off. I mean, we hope these are teachers.
Irony Either Way
This yearbook quote has to be deliberate, right? There’s no way that this student misspelled their quote in a quote about stupid people, right? Well, even if they did, the picture is hilariously ironic. Still, no matter his intention, there is some wisdom to glean from this particular quote. Thanks, John Wayne!
Hand of the Queen
If you really thought that we were about to roast Peter Dinklage, you’ve got another thing coming. As the Hand of the Queen and the most just man in the Seven Kingdoms, Peter Dinklage gets a permanent pass for high school yearbook transgressions. Also, can we do something about getting this man an Emmy?
Owen Wilson may be the funny guy with a heart of gold, but he is also kind of a heartthrob. This rare picture of Owen Wilson shows the future actor dressed up in his honor guard uniform. His trademark smile is in place but is nose is significantly less crooked. How different would his career have been had he avoided those major surgeries? Wait, he turned into a superstar anyway. Moving on.
Parents Getting Roasted
What government agency works opposite of CPS? Because, after reading these Yearbook quotes, we definitely need to call them. Zach, Mikyla, and Jamie all absolutely roasted their parents. We have to assume that these quotes were in good fun, though you never can tell…
Too Cool For School
This young gentleman might be too cool for school, but he still had to show up for his Yearbook photo. With the tinted Dahmer-esque glasses, a nice bowtie, and a crooked smile, we aren’t sure what we have to say about this fella. He appears to be wearing some kind of chef uniform, right? Or is his button just totally lost on his shirt?
Funny Face Or
Are we looking at a class clown or are we looking at the class burnout? Who can say? High school is filled with all sorts of students. Sometimes you just have to, well, roll with what you get in the yearbook. Having said that, we’re worried that our focus on his face is pulling away from what is clearly one of the coolest shirts to ever be embroidered.
The Quantum Leap
On next week’s episode of ‘Quantum Leap’, Dr. Sam Beckett will be… Wait, that’s not Scott Bakula? Well, if we need a backup Scott Bakula, we know who to call. In all seriousness, we think this yearbook photo was for the band section. Otherwise, maybe this is an unaired episode of ‘Quantum Leap’.
Marry Me, Diane
Any girl that is willing to quote Chewbacca in their senior yearbook is worth getting to know. Diane, if you are out there reading this, we are reading to be the Han Solo to your Chewy. Or whatever. That sounded smoother in our head. You know what? Nevermind. We’re sorry, please don’t yell at us.
Future Beatle or Bad Haircut
When Drew Forsyth stepped onto the school bus that fateful morning, he had no idea that his yearbook photo would be memorialized on the internet. Of course, when Forsyth was in high school, the internet wasn’t a thing. Wow, this is kind of blowing our minds right now. We are looking at a picture of a kid who grew up without the internet.
Hidden Message Test
This young student really enjoyed his time at Weston High School. Or did he? If you are an aspiring decoder, you might want to give this image another look. Can you see what we see? Do you think it was intentional? Was Weston High School actually a terrible place? These are questions that we’ll never have answers to.
DoorDash Yelling Misunderstanding Solved With The Internets Help￼
Have you ever spoken too loud or yelled the wrong thing and didn’t mean it at the time, like in a crowded restaurant? Well, that’s what happened to Mark Polchleb, except the person he accidentally yelled at was an innocent DoorDash driver dropping off Polchleb’s meal. Fortunately, the customer tried his best to make up for the mistake.
Repeat stories are all over the Internet about the abuse gig workers have had to endure just to make extra income as a second job or earn a living freelancing via services. DoorDash has become extremely popular in the food delivery industry, utilizing freelancers to connect the bridge between restaurants and customers at home wanting food delivered. The company’s business spiked, obviously, during the pandemic when both customers and restaurants wanted food bought and delivered but couldn’t do so in the restaurant itself due to social distancing. However, while business exploded, so did the rudeness drivers and delivery people had to put up with.
So, when a driver had to deliver an order to Polchleb’s door, it wasn’t an outrageous shock to be yelled at through the door, but it wasn’t a wonderful experience either. Unknown to the driver, however, Polchleb wasn’t yelling at the worker; instead, he had gotten verbally frustrated with his dog, but Polchleb didn’t realize his mistake was misinterpreted by the driver outside until it was too late.
The whole mistake happened with the driver getting near the front door. Polchleb’s dog reacted first and started barking up a storm. He yelled at the dog, probably using a few choice words. Unfortunately, the driver thought the verbal cussing was at him; the surprise and reaction turned to have been filmed on Polchleb’s doorcam. Worse, Polchleb opened the door, grabbed the food, and kept up the yelling at his dog. The driver probably thought the Australian customer was nuts.
Later, when Polchleb took some time to check out his camera’s footage, the mistake became obvious. The key reaction in the driver was when Polchleb yelled at his dog, “Get away from the door, mate!” The driver then backed up noticeably and left. Most folks would chalk up the goof to a personal whoops and move on. However, Polchleb felt genuinely bad and wanted to do something about it.
So, given how easy it was to reach a lot of people quickly, Polchleb decided to reach out online via social media, hopefully connecting to the driver through friends or direct. If it worked for companies and marketers, the online reach could work for Polchleb as well. So, he posted an apology on TikTok. Lots of users took the post as genuine and sympathized with what Polchleb was trying to do. Many noted they felt sick at the thought of being in the same situation. Mark kept posting, telling everyone he could online about his mission to find the driver to make up for the delivery mistake.
Finally, Polchleb was able to connect. It turned out the delivery driver’s child saw the video and told her father about it. They connected with Polchleb online. Sami, the driver, agreed to meet in person, and Polchleb got to learn about the driver and his family. The DoorDash job was intended to help Sami visit his son overseas, and the driver quietly kept the matter to himself like so many drivers do regularly. However, when DoorDash found about the story, the company also got involved, giving Sami elite status in the company and a permanent pay raise for life. Between that and some other help, Sami now has a very good chance to connect with his son again. And Mark Polchleb was able to clear his conscience as well.
Halifax Retiree Finds Her Old Rollerskates Online
The trend of people wanting to relive their memories as kids and teens through physical things they used to have earlier in life isn’t fading. In fact, even as people get older and many are positively in retirement, the trend has grown exponentially. The proof is easily seen in how expansive sites like eBay, for example, have grown in the last two decades, becoming global markets for used items that people want to own again. However, it’s one thing to buy a replacement for what one had earlier in life. It’s quite another to actually buy the same item decades later!
Halifax native Renee Forrestall decided at the active age of 60 that she wanted to get back on roller-skates again. It’s a common situation; people have more time on their hands after the kids have moved out and possibly are retired from work, and activity is promoted by everyone as a great way to keep the pounds off as well as keep the brain sharp. Roller-skating seemed to make sense for Renee, and it would give her a way to exercise that she remembered enjoying.
So, off Renee went to the store, and she quickly had a brand new set under her feet. However, old memories are hard to shake, and the new skates just didn’t feel like the old ones she used to have. Something about the fit with the old skating style made a big difference to her. So, knowing the Internet auction sites and similar were a great place to find old stuff, she started searching. Soon enough, Renee found a set that looked an awful lot like the rollerskates she remembered having four decades earlier. They were old, needed cleaning and laces, but they seemed to fit the bill.
Renee could have been completely wasting her time. The online ad didn’t even have the foot size listed, but she took a gamble and connected with the ad owner about the skates listed. In fact, Renee even traveled in person to the owner to try the skates on and buy them there if they fit. Once at the seller’s residence, she put her foot in the first skate and was shocked. The rollerskate not only fit, it matched her foot correctly!
Renee was a bit flabbergasted by what was going on and started to lace up the rollerskate. To do so, she had to move the tongue of the shoe part, and the writing on it caught her eye. Renee was literally looking at the name of a previous owner, and that name was hers. At that moment, the rollerskate fit and the name seemed to all make sense. She was buying back her old roller skates from almost half a century earlier.
Like most kids, Renee had written her name on the shoe tongue in case the skates got lost. The pair were originally sold by Renee when she was at university, and she forgot about them. To get them back was not only the thrill of finding something old for memory’s sake again, she had found literally her own rollerskates!
And, as an aside, the seller’s real name, no kidding, was James Bond. Talk about coincidences.
A Grade School, a Crow and a Foul Vocabulary
What do you do with crow with a foul mouth, and it wants to be your friend? That was the dilemma for one class at Allen Dale Elementary in Grants Pass. Normally, birds stay clear of humans, using their ability to fly to stay out of reach, unless doing an occasional drop or dive bomb to chase folks away from a nest. However, in the case of one particular crow, she wanted interaction. The particular bird made it pretty clear it wanted inside a school, pecking on windows and doors until she finally found a way into a 5th grade room for a few snacks.
The crow didn’t behave like a wild bird at all, being extremely friendly and landing on the kids. What was really noticeable, however, was that the bird could make sounds that imitated human phrases. And in that collection of verbal enunciations, the bird was apparently taught how to swear. Just like a like a pirate’s parrot, the crow was barking up a storm, completely flavored with salty language. When the local animal officers showed up to deal with the bird, they took one look at the fiasco and culprit and decided it wasn’t their type of case to deal with. The folks backed up and refused to do anything further. Eventually, however, the bird was in deep doo-doo. The Oregon State Police wildlife officer showed up instead. This time, the law was going to be applied, even if the bird didn’t have a clue what that meant.
The first question with the officer’s presence was exactly how to catch the crow. No one really wanted to use a net in case it traumatized what was clearly a friendly animal. However, every time the officer tried to get control, the crow would show around or next to one of the kids and hide. As it turned out, the government had to give up, and the bird spent the night on the school roof or nearby when the kids went home.
The avian culprit had clearly learned a wide vocabulary. By local count, it had something near 40 different words it could use, and the bird mental dictionary apparently got bigger with more interaction with the school kids. As it turned out, the bird had a name and was indeed cared for by humans earlier in its life. Cosmo was a recovered baby crow at the time who was cared for by Daphnie Colpron’s mother years earlier. Cosmo took quite a liking to the family and the farm they lived on as it grew to adulthood, chasing the family dogs and raising a ruckus during the day.
As it turned out, Cosmo, in her older age, decided to broaden interaction with humans, and started targeting local schools for more talking and play with human children. The bird began to learn the arrival schedule and made itself a regular at a local preschool before showing up at Allan Dale Elementary. Daphnie thought Cosmos had disappeared at one point after coming back from a holiday when they found out Cosmo had been captured and turned over to a bird sanctuary. However, Cosmo didn’t mingle well with other birds, and the sanctuary released her. Back she went to humans and daily chattering with local kids in Grants Pass. Daphnie and family eventually picked up Cosmo and took her home again, and the bird is doing just fine.
The Giant Garbage Monster in the Baltimore Harbor
If you happen to be in Baltimore and looking out on the water, don’t be surprised if you see a gigantic contraption with cartoon eyeballs chugging along in the water. You have been blessed with being witness to the Mr. Trash Wheel doing its job.
Trash interception, or the process of diverting pollution and garbage from ending up in natural locations or general landfill, has been a fundamental function of cities for decades. In particular, big cities have been challenged with improving their garbage removal as well as finding ways to recycle better. The Mr. Trash Wheel is one of the latest, more creative approaches developed in Baltimore, Maryland, particularly targeting the waterfront area that is seen by thousands every month. And, it’s also quite popular. When not gobbling up trash on the waterways, the Mr. Trash Wheel has become a popular target for social media selfies.
Design-wise, Mr. Trash Wheel operates as a floating garbage interceptor catching floating debris and consumer trash in the Jones Fall water path, a part of the Baltimore Inner Harbor water system. With an over-emphasized mouth and goofy eyes, the interceptor already has a fan club among locals in Maryland, and the city management is quite pleased with its actual garbage removal performance as well. Had it not been for this particular interceptor, thousands of pounds of floating trash would simply make its way out to the Atlantic Ocean affecting coastlines up and down Maryland state and further.
John Kellet can take credit for the Mr. Trash Wheel. A local business founder of Clearwater Mills, he began to become personally irritated by the amount of trash Kellet would witness after every storm, with the new drainwater pushing trash through the Harbor to the ocean. So, he decided to do something about it. With a bit of thinking and creativity, Kellet realized the market was entirely missing a viable tool for job. So, his entrepreneurial side kicked in, and Kellet took on the job of creating a solution.
Plastic has been the biggest factor of the problem. It doesn’t degrade, it floats, and it’s poisonous to wildlife. So, Kellet targeted that part of the trash environment first. Since that first development, the Mr. Trash Wheel, has since diverted well over 3 million pounds of plastic garbage, as well as other floating material picked up in the Harbor. The tool has been so effective, three more units were created to help keep the Harbor clean as well.
Interestingly, the Trash Wheel design is not very high tech. It incorporates a simple water paddle that utilizes the water’s own motion and power to work. As the water pushes against the mill paddles, it powers the unit’s operation (or with solar power), which scoops out track and floating material from the water and puts in on a conveyer track. This in turn pulls the trash up and out of the water and into a catch container for removal. The feed occurs via bouy net that traps the debris as it floats in the water towards the Trash Wheel. The trash container then just gets periodically emptied while the Trash Wheel works 24/7. Even more noticeable, the units can be managed remotely, increasing the pump function to turn the wheel as needed.
The benefits of the Trash Wheel in Baltimore’s Harbor have been immediate and noticeable. The device was extremely effective, and the floating trash levels dropped significantly after just the first few weeks. With the results so obvious, the additional three Trash Wheels were ordered by the municipality and put into action elsewhere in Baltimore’s waterways.
The story just goes to show as bad as consumerism and trash can get, people can be just as creative and effective in cleaning pollution up if they put their mind to it.
BackHoes coordinated to “Dance” to Metallica
Dance is an art of meaningful selected sequences of human movements performed rhythmically. Due to the change in industrialization, today, dance is practiced by many machines such as robots, which imitate human moves.
Aside from imitating human rhythmic movements, dance bears some profound message, including expressing an idea or emotion and realizing thoughts or feelings.
This art of actual dance has existed in India for more than 6200 years B.C, and while studying the first dynasty of Egypt, it has been there since 3000 B.C.
Much archaeological evidence gives relief showing a kind of dance or body language as Egypt’s culture advanced. Also, some paintings were made depicting musicians and dancers.
In the early days, Americans, Australians, and Africans originally danced for spiritual entertainment reasons. People will dance at funerals weddings after a harvest. However, some of these reasons still influence dance to date.
Today most people dance for entertainment purposes, keep the body fit, celebrating something significant like a wedding, winning, or birthday while others use dance as a source of income.
Recently a Quebec firm has taken dance to a whole new level with its fleet of construction vehicles performing a synchronized dance to a classical version song.
This construction firm gave a new purpose to the words ‘heavy metal’ by performing a dance routine using backhoes, something we have never seen before.
Montreal heavy metals and backhoes make an excellent natural combination. This is after all the is equipment heavy and made from metal. Recently a Quebec construction firm has decided to take the pairing a step further.
According to the video published on Youtube, workers of Bertrand Ostiguy Inc., a Sheffield based excavation firm, decided to take their excavating trucks through some unusual dance
Moves, which were all strategically planned and written for an orchestra play version of Metallica’s classic ‘Nothing Else Matters.’ By Finnish symphonic metal band Apocalyptica.
Imagine the excavators’ dip, spin, bow, and pivot in concert, displaying a rare epic show at either construction sites or Metallica moshpits. The video on Youtube was shot by a young 14-year-old teenager Julien ARES whose uncle owns the company.
“For a very long time, my uncle had this idea. At a glance, we did a zoom for Christmas, and the idea popped out about doing the dancing excavators; we all laughed hilariously at the concept but honestly, we were thinking about it all night.” said Julien.
At a glance, I wanted to do something slow and rhythmic since the excavators are gigantic, and they are annoying slow, and because of this, I wanted a slow song. Unfortunately, the initial songs had too many high notes, and I wanted something with more bass. That’s when my uncle suggested he look up at the legendary hard rockers.
Surprisingly at this young age, Ares has been making and shooting videos for his older brother’s company. Julien Ares’s ambition is larger than a few dancing backhoes.
