When you see a weird image depicting an improbable scenario, lousy acting, and that peculiar editing style, you can instantly tell that it's a stock photo. There's just something about these weird photos that make them so distinguishable and often laughable. And though these images were primarily made to be sold, it's impossible to think anyone would choose these even they were free stock photos. Bored Panda has collected a mass of strange and funny photos from sites like iStock or Shutterstock that no one will ever use, and they will definitely make you say WTF.

From a grandma teaching a group of blond children the secrets of "stab between the fingers" to a female version of Adolf Hitler peeling potatoes, the photographers behind these weird stock photos were probably trying a bit too hard. And it's not that we don't appreciate all the work that went into producing them... We just think each of them should come with an in-depth commentary by the author, explaining what was going on their head while creating such a funny stock photo, worthy of our list.
