Thanks, Shutterstock, for this gallery of the craziest stock photos ever. These are the most ridiculous and hilarious stock photos on the Internet. When perusing this utterly insane slideshow, you will no doubt be asking yourself, “why would ANYONE need a stock photo of a woman sensually eating a dragonfly?” The answer: they don’t. There is absolutely no reason for many of these crazy stock photos to exist. And yet, someone managed to convince Shutterstock to buy their insane artsy images of a headless doll relaxing on some rocks.
There are millions of stock photos currently available on picture sharing megasites like Shutterstock.com. Stock photos are used in articles and ad campaigns that can be about absolutely anything. So even weird photos that seem to have no feasible use could conceivably have been taken with a specific goal in mind. But probably not these ones.
Some might argue that the best stock photos are the ones that convey a clear image that can be used by people all over the world. But that’s not true. Good stock photos are ones that make absolutely no sense and hopefully include some sort of animal dressed up in human clothes. Or an illustration of peanuts performing in a circus.
If you’re looking to spend an afternoon laughing out loud, this funny stock photos slideshow should do the trick. The best part? You don’t have to buy a subscription to a stock photo website to enjoy! Just vote for the weirdest stock photos below so the whole world can enjoy this madness.
