10 Hilarious Student ID Stories

1The student who channeled her inner matchmaker

June Kyra Dela Chica, a 17-year-old incoming senior at a high school in Oregon, has already won the 2016-17 school year (and the Internet). She tweeted out her this amazing Mulan transformation, and it's gone massively viral, racking up several thousand shares.

Dela Chica channeled one of the most memorable characters from Disney's Mulan — the matchmaker. With a few strokes of makeup and a well-rehearsed facial expression, her transformation was complete.

2The students who paid tribute to a fallen gorilla

Harambe, the gorilla who was killed after a dangerous encounter with a 4-year-old boy at the Cincinnati Zoo, lives on in the student ID photos of four girls from Troy, Michigan. Together, their shirts spell out "Harambe 1999-2016." Since the image was posted, it's been retweeted a few thousand times. R.I.P. Harambe.

3The famous actor who found an ID card in the park and returned it

A-lister and all around nice guy Tom Hanks made headlines in 2015 when he tweeted a photo of a Fordham University student's ID with the message, "Lauren! I found your Student ID in the park. If you still need it, my office will get to you. Hanx."

Lauren made her way to his office where it was waiting with a note from the actor. "I got my old ID back with a little note from him that said make sure I hold on to this, and his signature," she said. "I'm so thankful that he was kind enough to pay it forward to me, and I will 100% do the same for anyone else."

4The student whose Pepsi shirt got him suspended

Looks like an innocent enough ID card photo, right? Well, in 1998, Michael Cameron caused a great deal of controversy with his choice of apparel, by wearing a Pepsi shirt to school on Coke in Education Day.

The Coca-Cola-themed day, according to Principal Gloria Hamilton, was part of a contest sponsored by the soft drink giant, a school business partner for Columbia County, Georgia schools. They had offered an educational bonus of $500 to the high school that came up with the most creative method of distributing Coke Cards — promotional cards offering discounts at several area businesses — to students.

Greenbrier integrated a Coca-Cola theme into class instruction. There was to be a student body photo in which students spelled out the name of the soft drink — and Cameron walked into school wearing the aforementioned Pepsi shirt. All hell broke loose. He received a day of in-school suspension but opted instead for a day of out-of-school.

Cameron later said of the incident, "That's my personality. I don't like to follow the trend of everyone else."

5The kid who changed his name to a Disney character on photo day

Redditor EricMory shared his old school ID online with the caption "In grade eleven I secretly changed my name on photo day. Nobody noticed, so it got printed on my student card." Langstaff seems to have that "Maturity Through Responsibility" thing down here, don't they?

6The girl who recreated her kindergarten photo for her high school ID card

This student "bookended" her school career with the above photos. Kentwood, Michigan resident Tyra Hunt wanted to show her transformation from little girl to young adult, so she styled her hair in pigtails, dressed in a neon green shirt and donned a somewhat anxious facial expression to match the picture that was taken of her in kindergarten. Of course, it soon went viral, getting picked up by BuzzFeed, New York magazine and Teen Vogue, among other outlets.

7The cat who has a student ID card

The Marienthal family's cat has its very own student ID card.

Bubba has been a familiar sight at Leland High School in San Jose, California, which backs up to the family's backyard since they adopted him from a shelter in 2009. He's often the first one at the school's door, waiting for staff and students to arrive. Leland has an outdoor campus — all the classrooms' doors open outward — and he often wanders in and out of classrooms.

Bubba has made the school's yearbook and newspaper and has even been a cover model for last year's senior magazine. He is also the subject of his own Facebook page, which has nearly 55,000 likes and hundreds of photos.

8The teen who used the name of a drug kingpin on his ID card

Langstaff and that pesky "Maturity Through Responsibility" motto again— a Redditor known as peysos writes, "In grade twelve I secretly changed my name (to that of the notorious drug kingpin) on photo day. Nobody noticed, so it got printed on my student card." And yes, he and "Jaffar FromAladdin" knew each other.

9The camera recognition software failure responsible for this ID photo

A friend of a Redditor known as Hijix wore a t-shirt with children's TV icon Fred Roger on it while getting his student ID photo taken. Instead of focusing on his face, the camera shot his Mr. Rogers t-shirt. In his defense, Mr. Rogers DOES make everything better — it must be those adorable cardigans he wears!

10The kid who got away with it

Yes, he went there and judging by the photo, he has zero regrets.
