More Hilariously Awkward Stock Photos

Image credit: 

I used to work for an advertising agency, and we frequently used stock photo websites for ads and other projects. Often, much of the time spent on these sites scouring for "a picture of two ladies shopping" or "friends laughing together over dinner" produced laughs as we made fun of the strange eclectic mix of photos the sites would provide.

That's why I am so angry at myself for not thinking of Awkward Stock Photos "“ a site that our friends at Lemondrop featured last week. They rounded up some of their favorites. Here are some of mine:

"Quick, we need two women dressed for a cocktail party, wearing motorcycle helmets, headbutting in the forest at midnight!"

"I know what this print ad needs: a thoughtful chicken holding an egg like a football on a field goal attempt."

"I don't know what I'm looking for, but I'll know when I see it. Wait, I've found it!"

I've got nothing.
