Welcome to another edition of the Misadventures in Stock Photography! Today we’ll meet I’m Too Sexy For My Shirt Guy (ITSFMSG). Many thanks to Stephani Hecht for coming up with his name and for helping me find some of these covers. Unlike the Staring Contest Guys, poor ITSFMSG must deal with all sorts of Photoshop modifications – head and body switching, ab smoothing, hair lengthening, and more.

And now, on to our story…

That last cover gives me the giggles. Your doctor enters the exam room, wearing a mask over his eyes, and rips open his shirt… O.O

  1. Congrats Amy & Paula!

    *bows to Chris* You’ve completely outdone yourself this time! And poor ITSFMSG! All those Photoshop modifications – I bet he looks in the mirror sometimes and doesn’t know who he is any more *grin*

    Your doctor enters the exam room, wearing a mask over his eyes, and rips open his shirt… O.O

    My doctor is a woman… However, if my doctor looked like ITSFMSG…and was male…I’m game 🙂

    May – are you sure the kitty wants to be rescued. Where would the kitty sleep…and whose food would he eat?

  2. Our son is just finishing up medical school here in the US so I can tell you what’s happening in that last photo. The doctor has to prostitute himself to the redhead and sell the shirt off his back to make the next payment on his student loans. He forgot to take off the mask from his extra job playing The Lone Ranger for kid’s birthday parties.

  3. Poor ITSFMSG. It must be confusing to have your head chopped off and someone elses put on. Hmm…actually, maybe that would help me. Where do I sign up?

  4. LOLOLOL re Nene’s comment, most days I feel like signing up too. Some photoshop work on those bad hair days would be most welcome.

    Mayhem, I too think that kitty requires rescuing from those naughty boys!

    I’m laughing on Monday morning – I LOVE Misadventures…

    You have a good day and Congrats to Paula – enjoy your read!

  5. I WISH that happened to me every time I got to the Dr. My Dr. is a 45 year old woman, not quite my thing. 🙂

    I already have a black cat and one is my limit, so Mayhem is stuck there, naughty boys and all.

  6. ITSFMSG’s abs on that 1st cover are…scary. They must have photoshopped some extra shading or something because each ripple in his abs looks to be at least an A cup, maybe even a B.

    And the last cover…I’m still trying to figure out how the Zorro mask, stethoscope, bad hair and shirt ripping related to the werecat title. :0

  7. LOL at ITSFMSG! Great name.

    I don’t care what the cover artists think, that shirt does not work in flat black.

    I’m, sure the patients feel more comfortable around a doctor who wears a mask and rips off his shirt. 😉

  8. Okay, time for honesty, for whatever reason I can’t (or won’t) put my finger on, this guy creeps me out. I’m with May on this one – get far, far away, Mayhem!!!

  9. Chris, you really out did yourself this time. The whole “Alas, that wasn’t true, and poor ITSFMSG required facial reconstruction surgery, a wig, and a mask after the wicked panther lady had her way with him and then said, “You will..” That was inspired. You are amazing. Everyone has a mutant power, this is yours.

    🙂 Mary
