Welcome to another edition of the Misadventures in Stock Photography! Today weâ€™ll catch up a bit with Slouching Open Black Jacket Guy (SOBJG), for something like the ninth time. 🙂 Remember, you can always hover your cursor over the covers to see how I used the title in the Misadventure.

I would like some author to write a scene in which on of the characters is, indeed, “rode hard as teak.” I’d like to find out just what that means.
Actually, thinking about this some more, maybe I should give this as a prompt in some writing challenge. Too bad it’s too late to suggest it for LiAW.
I’m in awe!
May – there will always be lots of naughty boys! *whispers* Thank goodness!

Peppermint sticks always calm me down too 😉
He is a professional sloucher. He’d win a meddle in that.
So do you think Opening Moves is about a foursome? Given my post today I may have to check it out if it is.
Chris- I can’t believe this guy survived all that.

I’m told by those who should know that covers with people on them sell better than those without.
I can’t stand ’em. They all look the same to me. After seeing this post, I understand why. 🙂
The stock model that drives me the most crazy? Blond smiley guy with crossed arms. Every time I see him, I want to knock that grin off his face.

That naughty boy needs to join the army. They’ll teach him to stand up straight!
*Hangs head in shame* all I got from this was Chess? Ooh I saw that Saturday 🙂 and then I started humming the songs (AGAIN)
Many appologies, will try again later to see if I can focus 😉
Good thing he had some peppermint sticks to calm down!
Lovely photo of May sitting in sphinx position. I love how cats do that and tuck their paws in. So cute! 🙂

I’m loving the bangs in Two Pirates to Treasure. It reminds me of the one school photo we all have of the year we tried to grow out our bangs. Oh, come on! You all know you have one of those pictures. Mine was from eight grade.
you have an art for being able to tell a man by his titties. I am in awe.
Man, that row of covers is like walking through a skin jungle! Good thing you provided a nail-biter of a story to keep me distracted. 🙂
May, and it appears your mama knows EVERY ONE of them!

I have a teak table next to my knitting chair. Thanks for the image…
Peppermint sticks?! Who knew?
May, you are very lovely double front leg amputee!
P.S. I had no idea that dukes did not wear shirts.

Ugh, no thanks slouchy
Ooh! Peppermint makes *everything* better!
This is one of my favorites so far!
Perhaps some peppermint sticks would make your brain hurt less! Or maybe May would like one….
A recent post from janna..This and That
Those peppermint sticks would they be like candy canes? I kind of drifted away thinking about peppermint sticks…..!

Nice. You know, you don’t realize how often some of these cover models are repeated until you see this. Thanks for sharing, and hopefully your brain doesn’t hurt too much now! 🙂
