Stock photos are shitty. Stock photos are really, really shitty. At work I spend most of my day blindly searching through the 100 million photos on Shutterstock, asking myself, “Why am I sober? Why didn’t I go to business school? Are we going to get catered lunch today?”
But every so often the Stock Gods grace me with a gift from the deep abyss. A gift so weird that I must instantly send it to the nearest person I can find. You want a photo of a cyborg woman with a fetish for corn? Sent. Ever seen a chameleon with the head of a Labrador Retriever? Check your Slack!
Here are a few of my favorites from the weird stock photos I’ve found in the course of my normal workday.
