Graduation is such an exciting time for graduates. They've worked so hard, gotten the grades to pass their classes; maybe some of them have managed to get a job after college or get into the college of their dreams after high school. But it's also a stressful time. And stress can lead to some pretty funny humor, which can come in handy if you have to sit through a graduation or two this spring. Just for you, we've compiled these 21 hilarious graduation memes that will distract you from how long those graduations are.

Graduation brings up a lot of relief and excitement, but there's also reality, like the fact that some colleges are really darn expensive and some graduates didn't get a degree that led them straight to a job before they were even handed a diploma. Graduating from high school or college is a giant reality check, and that realization can be pretty funny.

If you have a long graduation ahead of you (heck, even if it's your own!), you might need this list of 21 hilarious graduation memes. Just try not to laugh out loud while you're reading them if you're sitting in a quiet audience. That's a dead giveaway that you're not performing your graduation golf clap like you should be!
