Satiregram Pokes Fun at Instagram Clichés by Posting Descriptions Instead of Photos

satiregram

The standard Instagram clichés are so… well… cliché that they’re an accepted part of our lives now. Photos of food and selfies are so much a part of our day-to-day existence that I’m only a little ashamed to say I did the former last night (birthday cake pic…) and the latter is now in the dictionary.

But Instagram clichés go beyond the selfie and the food pic, and that’s why @Satiregram exists: to point out and make fun of all of the photos we see filling up our Instagram feeds every day.

Satiregram was created by the same person behind the Twitter account @SoPretentious and the Facebook page Satirebook. Clearly, there’s a serious love of pointing out the ridiculous here. For Satiregram, that means posting photos that show written descriptions instead of the photo itself.

So instead of your standard food pic, you might get this:

And instead of a late night driving selfie, you might get this:

Every photo describes yet another ridiculous and overused subject for an Instagram photo, some of which we didn’t even realize were so prevalent until we saw the description. Here’s a look at some of what you’ll find on Satiregram:
