One of the best things about Instagram is that it gives you an excuse to take and post ridiculous pictures. Instagram is great for sharing those laughable moments. You can look back on these moments and laugh later—while your friends can look at them and laugh now. Whether it’s a crazy picture of you and your friend, a funny selfie, or an amusing photo of you and your significant other, you want to find the right words to go with it.
Some Instagram pictures don’t need a caption—they’ll make you literally LOL, no explanation needed. For other photos, you may be looking for the perfect words to describe an amusing situation or expression. Some jokes need a little context, a dash of clever description, on just a little linguistic je ne sais quoi (which is French for “idk wut?”). Whether you’re posting weird selfies or funny group shots with your friends, here are some ideas for captioning a funny moment.
Funny Instagram Captions for Selfies
Looking for the right words to describe your selfie? Maybe you’ve spent too much time with your camera and the Instagram filters, and it’s time to complete the picture with a funny caption or two so you can post those gems. Maybe you’re worried that your friends will think your photo is actually that funny, so you want to up the ante—you need a funny quote or saying, but you just don’t know what to write. Here are some ideas:

Funny Instagram Captions and Quotes for Groups, Friends, and Family
When you’re hanging out with your family, friends, or a bunch of buddies, no one else will ever really understand the vibe at the moment more than you do. Hence the term, “I guess you had to be there.” But the right quote can bring your audience in on the sense of… whatever made that thing so funny at the time. Bring back that feeling of 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 crazy friend photo that you post to Instagram, and give people a little more insight into the kooky tribe you have.
