They may have different friends and different interests but nothing brings high school students together like alphabetical order.
For the eight students at a California high school with the same last name – Nguyen -it was obvious their wallet-size snapshots would be sharing the same yearbook page.
So instead of exerting their individuality with the standard Grateful Dead quote and a prom-worthy up-do, they decided to join forces for the ultimate prank. Alexandra, Angela, Angelica, Elizabeth, Emily, Isabella, Madeline and Vi Nguyen all wore the same black off-shoulder dresses and the same hairstyles. Then they went for the win.
Eschewing the optional yearbook one-liner under each of their photos, they divided up two sentences that made fellow students and administrators think twice before making any stereotypical assumptions. Altogether, the words under the Nguyen girls’ eight pictures read: “We know what you’re thinking and no we’re not related.”
After a fellow student posted the yearbook image on her Facebook page, it was picked up by Tosh O, The Daily Mail and a slew of other humor sites, earning the teenagers the collective honor of “funniest yearbook quote ever.”
“Not to brag or anything, but I came up with this,” Isabella Nguyen, one of the eight girls commented on her own Facebook page.
If anyone has earned the right to a humblebrag, it’s her.
