58 Captions For Anyone Who Loves To Be Salty And Sarcastic

Add a little bit of ~*spice*~.

Originally Published: 

Salty, with a side of sarcasm — that's the style of your social media, and you wouldn't want it to be any other way. You love how your Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat, and Twitter accounts show off your sense of humor, and are a genuine representation of your personality. They’re totally unfiltered, and the places to go for a collection of your favorite memes, unsolicited thoughts, and unpopular opinions. However, despite having such a good handle on straightforwardness, you may want these honest or sarcastic Instagram captions for your upcoming posts, so you don’t need to come up with a caption yourself.

To be honest (again), coming up with captions can be tricky at times. You have a super quick wit, and will spend hours crafting the best joke for social media so it’ll go viral. But some days you just don’t have the time or energy to create the Next Viral Thing™. On those days, you may turn to outside help like your straightforward bestie, a reality television star, or Stevie Budd from Schitt’s Creek, who’s “incapable of faking sincerity.” Like you, they approach everything in life with honesty and aren’t afraid to tell it like it is, but typically don’t take the joke too far.

That’s a really good balance to have, because you don’t want to hurt anyone in the process of posting on social media and raking in the likes. You only want to share your thoughts about pineapple on pizza, low-rise jeans, and Lorde’s new single, and see how people will react to your salty side. These sarcastic Instagram captions will help you do just that, and be your funny, real, and sometimes moody self online.
