This Post Cost Me $7 In Stock Photos, So Go Ahead And Read It

So here's how it went down.

I use a lot of stock photos when I blog, so I pay for a couple of different subscription services to ensure I have quality photos.

Last week, I did a blog piece about my son and an incident that left him in a meltdown. I needed a good stock photo of a boy being very upset, so I searched out "boy tantrum" expecting a shot like the one above.

There were a few of those. 

But there were also these five in the search results, and they were so bizarre, I had to share them.

1. Why is this man looking at me like this? And why is he listed as a boy having a tantrum?
He looks like he may be using illegal substances.
A lot of illegal substances.
2. Why is this man (again, not a boy) strangling an invisible person?

Look at him. He's got crazy eyes.

3. This isn't a boy either. I am not complaining.

Holy cow, has he got a lot of veins.

4. One more for the "not a boy" category. A badly-drawn cartoon of a middle-aged woman (she's wearing lipstick, so I'm making an assumption) enjoying a  sandwich. 

Perhaps this was drawn by a boy having a tantrum

5. And finally, at least this one is a boy. I think. Or it's someone wearing the boy's skin.

He is burdened with glorious purpose.

Whelp...that's enough stock photo searching for me. I'm outta here.
