Misadventures in Stock Photography (Part the Fifth, or Hello, Again, Candy Cane Guy)

I know, I know, I thought we were done with Candy Cane Guy, too! Apparently he’s not done with us…

Remember when he lost his trademark jeans in that tragic fire? Apparently he didn’t have any trouble finding a place to stay after the fire.

But then he learned about the dangers of hunger and got really worried…

…so he had to grab some breakfast.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch…

…he was up to no good, I’m sure.

And then things got a little crowded and complicated. O_o

But in the end, he was left out in the cold, all alone.

Maybe he’s learned a lesson?! Nah. I bet we’ll see him again someday…

So it’s kind of fun to see some of the original stock images. Does this look familiar?

How about this?

And of course, how could we forget that classic pose that started it all?

  1. What on earth is he eating in that photo? It looks like a plate full of school glue… I’m rather concerned. Also, he has a bowl full of cereal with no milk.. you just KNOW he’s going to make a mess when he pours that cup of milk into his cornflakes… He’ll probably just stand there all aloof with his thumbs in his belt lops and expect someone else to clean it all up. Those stock photo guys are all the same…*hmpf*

  2. I think Lorraine has the right of it. If he’s been getting around that much, I certainly don’t want whatever he has!

    (FYI – your book prize will be on your way to you later this week. Yay books in the mail!)

  3. Okay I’m with Mouse. I recognize the milk and apple that breakfast guy is eating, but what the heck are those other two things. One looks like a carrot soaked in white glue (appropriately pointing up) and the other looks like some bizarre form of mac and cheese.

    I don’t know May, candy cane guy would have to work hard to be as naughty as big kitty has been lately. ­čśë

  4. LOL Chris…

    I think Mayhem is cuter than that well used Stock art guy!!

    At least you got me smiling at the end of a long, long, long, long day…

    PS:
    It’s freaking freezing AND snowing here! *sigh*

  5. Hey honey… You crack me up! This is hilarious. I am not sure I will ever look at my covers the same – ever again!!! LMBO!!! I will be keeping a close eye on your my pretties!!! Heee heeee!!!

    I do love May’s pose, she is such the Princess!
    Have a great night/day hon!

  6. is it horribly objectifying to say I prefer him when he’s headless? His face isn’t bad, just YOUNG looking. But the abs are… oh so fine.
