If you’re running low on ways to make your friend captions for Instagram funny, we’ve got your back. We come bearing Instagram captions to use or modify as you please, but you’ll also find some handy tips on writing captions that will make your friends laugh so hard it hurts.

How to Write Hilariously Funny Friend Captions for Instagram

Do you need a little help making your friendship Instagram captions funny? We get it! A single night out of lazy afternoon can lead to hundreds of Insta-worthy pictures, and it’s hard to caption them all! If you find yourself relying on tried and tested captions that have inspired LOLs and attracted likes before, here are some ideas to take your friendship captions to the next level.

  • Unleash all those inside jokes! Funny best friend Instagram captions that would seem totally random and out of context to anyone not in the crew are the best.
  • State the obvious. Go back to basics and notice things about your friends (or the situations you capture on Instagram) that everyone in your friend group takes for granted to the point of not noticing them anymore. Selfie sesh? Don’t forget to point out that your friend is wearing your earrings, and that lovely shade of lipstick she’s sporting also belongs to you.
  • Go way over the top. Exaggerating aspects of your friendship in your Instagram captions can quickly turn mundane situations into hilariously funny moments.
  • Sarcasm is another obvious winner. Use it sparingly to make sure your sharpest comments retain that edge.
  • Don’t forget about the emojis. Some well-placed emojis can completely transform your friendship captions, especially if you’re using deadpan humor.

When in doubt, keep an eye on the comments and likes your posts get. You know a caption was lukewarm if it only got a few likes, while comments just as silly as your caption show you that you’re on the right track!

FAQ About Funny Friendship Instagram Captions

What makes friendship Instagram captions funny?

The tricky thing about humor is that it’s completely subjective. One man’s hilarious joke is another’s grave insult. You know and love your friends (that’s why they’re your friends!), but some of your Instagram followers might not be quite as tight. Your funny friend captions for Instagram get even more interesting if relatives also follow you.

Our advice? Don’t worry about it. You can’t please everyone. Focus on inside jokes and the kind of humor you know the friends in your photos or videos will laugh at, and just accept that not everyone will “get it.”

How long should my funny friend Instagram captions be?

It’s always best to keep your Instagram captions fairly short, but that advice is doubly true for funny captions. It’s hard to keep a caption that goes on forever funny! Generally, aim for no more than 220 characters — and stick to 140 characters if you want your friends to be able to read your captions at a glance without tapping the More button.

What hashtags should I add to my funny friends Instagram captions?

Choosing the right hashtags for your crazy friends captions for Instagram is tricky because you have (quite literally) thousands of different options to choose from. Please pick carefully — the more hashtags you add, the less of an impact each hashtag will have.

Some of our favorite hashtags for funny Instagram captions for friends include #bff, #funnyfaces, #bestfriends, #squadgoals, #friendsforlife, #loveyouguys, #memoriesmade, #groupfie, #oldfriendsarethebestfriends, and #bestfriendsbelike.

Don’t be afraid to look up trending hashtags for your specific occasion, though!
