When you see funny and weird pictures depicting an improbable scenario, lousy acting, and that peculiar editing style, you can instantly tell that they are stock images. Cue: ridiculous stock photos. 

There’s just something about these strange photos that makes them so distinguishable and often laughable. And though these weird stock photos were primarily made to be sold, it’s impossible to think anyone would choose these odd pictures even if they were given for free. 

However, we like weird stuff and we know that so do you! Hence Bored Panda has collected a mass of strange and funny stock images from sites like iStock or Shutterstock that no one will ever use, and that will definitely make you say, “WTF is this photo?”

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, funny photos that seem almost unreal were probably trying a bit too hard. 

And it’s not that we don't appreciate all the work that went into producing these ridiculous stock photos... We just think each of them should come with an in-depth commentary by the author, explaining what was going on in their head while creating these weird, funny stock images worthy of our list.
