Misadventures in Stock Photography (Part the Eighth, Being But a Few of the Further Adventures of Candy Cane Guy)

Congrats to Lynn, Anita, Patti, Linda, and Wanda, who all won copies of A Black Tie Affair!


Crap. I’ve gotten behind in the Candy Cane Guy posts and now have enough pictures for two or three new posts. Workingest guy in stock photography?!

While we were otherwise engaged, Candy Cane Guy went through a tartan phase.

Which also included his tattoo and tanning phase.

I really had no idea how similar a kilt was to a tiny hand towel. Did you?

Candy Cane Guy thought that maybe he gained a little weight while he was recovering from the no doubt arduous tattoo removal. His plummeting self-esteem sent him out advertising himself in less-than-subtle ways… O_o

Then he got sort of skinny, but he felt a lot better about himself and was putting his …sign to other uses.

For reference, here’s what he looked like before his weight started to yo-yo:

Looks like he also picked up a few things at the store… probably too much to expect him to have any clothes in those bags, eh?

Oh oh, I spoke too soon… Although he did buy some clothes (hmm, nothing to cover his infamous chest and abs and belly button*, I notice), he bought guns! And a home cloning kit! This can’t end well…

Tune in at some indeterminate future point to find out what happens next!

*Yes, his unusual belly button is the key to identifying him on covers. Now you all know my secret. Woe.


“Mom, I just don’t understand why this boy is so naughty. It must be because he has thumbs. The big kitty would like to be really wicked, but he can’t be because he doesn’t have thumbs.” -Mayhem

  1. Hmmm. I wonder how much he got paid for that gig? A couple of hundred dollars and signed away his rights. No royalties I’m sure or he’d be rich.

  2. Oh my gosh, I am dying! You kill me girl!
    Ahhh, you let your secret out… humm…
    And yea… having thumbs gets you in all kind of trouble May, trouble that you need to stay out of!!!
    I hope you had a great weekend!!!

  3. Its so wrong but I was at the book store the other night and was looking at the book covers of the romance novels on the ‘Valentine book” display to see how many used the stock photo guys mentioned here…

  4. Candy Cane Guy grown in a tube? Hmm. This takes away the theory that he is naughty because of the thumbs. He is naughty because he is a Pod Person! So Miss May doesn’t need to worry about Chaos.

  5. Sending you a cyber-biscuit. You are better than I at keeping in touch. I wonder if we could ask the Guiness Book folks to create a catagory for “Most Published Abs”? Or maybe we can talk Colorforms into creating a CandyCane Guy and Friends set? Lots of little peel and stick abs, with peel and stick accessories like leather jackets and placcards and peel and stick lusty heroines.
