Funny Instagram Captions and Quotes – Make Your Friends Laugh!

Instagram has become a spectacularly successful app because people are passionate about taking and sharing photos of themselves and their world. And why not?  From sharing unique experiences, to keeping in touch with friends and family, a picture is worth a thousand words, so why not share and share alike?  Instagram has a huge variety of content; some people focus on providing high-quality, even artistic, images of the world around us, while other people post pictures of themselves participating in questionable rites of passage (that collegiate keg stand, for example). Deep or superficial, serious or hilarious, those Instagram snaps are a window on the life experiences of all the people using the site. There’s no better app for sharing all of the moments that make life the wild ride it is, with funny, sad, adorable, and serious pictures that truly encompass the entire human experience. And of course, whether it’s a crazy picture of you and a friend, a funny selfie, or an amusing photo of you and your significant other, you want to find the right words to go with your image.

Some Instagram photos might not need a caption to get the message or meaning across— there are, after all, some visuals that speak for themselves. But sometimes the only way to spell out the true meaning of a more abstract image is to caption the photo, and that’s where we come in. Whether your joke needs a bit of context to get the point across, a dash of ingenuity, or just a bit of linguistic je ne sais quoi, we’ve got you covered. Whether your forte is more along the lines of weird selfies, funny group shots of your friends, or anything else under the sun, here’s some ideas for captioning a funny moment.

Funny Instagram Captions for Selfies

You’ve taken the perfect selfie—now all you need is the perfect way describe the image. Taking a funny selfie isn’t easy, so it’s important to really nail it with the caption to get your point across. Maybe you’re worried that your friends won’t think your photo is actually funny or cute, so you want to up the ante. In that case, you’ll need a funny quote or saying to really drive home the punchline. If you aren’t sure what to write, or you’re having a bit of writer’s block, here are some of our favorite ideas:

Funny Instagram Captions and Quotes for Groups, Friends, and Family

So you’ve got the selfie captions out of the way, but what about when you’re hanging with your family, friends, or your pals from work?  Group shots have a definite feeling about them that depends on the time and place- especially if that place is “Happy Hour.”  No one else will ever truly understand the vibe at that specific moment more than you do—hence the term, “I guess you had to be there.” But the right quote or caption can bring your followers in on how awesome the moment truly is, filling them in on all the hilarious details. Bring back that feeling of “laugh ’til you cry,” “laugh ’til your stomach hurts,” or “laugh ’til you pee your pants,” as needed by using one of these captions or quotes on the next photo of your crazy friends that you post to Instagram. That way, you can give a bit more insight into the kooky tribe you’ve built for yourself. Here’s the list:

  • Nobody really likes us but us… and even that’s kind of questionable.
