Awkward Yearbook Signatures
Every year, thousands of things get written in people's yearbooks. Some of them are heartfelt and will stand the test of time. Most of them are not. I decided to start a blog to catalogue the best examples of the latter. So far I've bought yearbooks off of ebay and found good examples from my own yearbooks and friends. But I'm hoping you guys can help me spread the word and submit some of your own so that I can post them more frequently. Submission email address is

Nice. On my list of project ideas is "build site to make fun of crazy yearbook signatures." I guess I can scratch that one out :)

One suggestion: Transcriptions?

Thanks for all the votes guys!

I wondered about transcriptions. I figure that handwriting could be an issue. I need to put a note that says you can click through an image for a larger version. I'm sort of piecing together all the 'making the web page work' stuff as I go.

Anyone who has any yearbooks, send them in! I'm starting to run out and they're kind of expensive on ebay!

This is why I never bothered to get yearbooks in the first place. Kickass site, keep 'em coming.

Funny but why do 1/2 the handwriting samples look like they're from serial killers?

I was apparently in the same graduating class as Peter, but I can't for the life of me figure out who he is.

Great site!
