Mock the Stock

Warning: This post only makes sense if you follow the links. Except for the first one which is total shameless promotion.

My alter ego Melissa Blue has been quite busy. Doing crazy junk like self-publishing. Tried to talk her out of it, but she wouldn't listen. Due to this hair-brained idea there has been a lot of time spent on stock photo sites. Despite what some people say a cover matters even with an ebook, especially when you are scrolling through thousands upon thousands of books.

Spending all this time going through these stock photos I want to know why isn't there a blog mocking some of them. Ok. Maybe there is and I just haven't found it yet...But, seriously this guy is trying to eat her face. And I'm thinking Nom, Nom, Nom and said in a Cookie Monster voice.

Now this is cute. THIS is hilarious. One big droplet of water to simulate rain.

There's also the definition of sexy. I won't provide links for this one, because O_0. There's the awkward, over-the-top, just plain crazy why oh why did you post that picture? Stock photo sites are the land of milk and honey for mockery.

In the end I guess it's worth it when you find a gem.
