Not a toilet in the country has not been affected by the Ping in one way or another.

Stock Photography Descriptions That Make Me Laugh

As part of my job duties, I need to find good stock photography. While iStockPhoto is a great resource, and all images are free (including the whopping huge full-size files), I generally turn to PhotoDisc – prices are okay, and the selection is also pretty good. (Their servers suck, but what can you do.)

While looking through pages upon pages of images, I’ve found that some of the descriptions for the photos are simply humorous, especially out of context. Tell me where else on the web you can find captions like these, please.

Father Giving His Two Children a Piggyback Ride
Portrait of a Young Girl Wearing Face Paint
Boy Photographing His Three Generation Family
Girl Embracing Chihuahua
Rotterdam Farmer with Laptop
CONFUSED Young Woman Typing on a Laptop (their capitals, not mine)
Portrait of Man Using Laptop in a Subway Terminal
Businessman on a Cellular Phone Leaning on Stairs
Leaf Woman
Mother Watching Her Toddler Brush Its Hair
Orange Snow
Portrait of a Teen Boy Being Cool
Condom in Blue Jeans Pocket
Handgun in the Waistband of a Man’s Pants

Now try to imagine those images. -pm

Also of note: the image "Happy Young Boy Riding Tricycle" doesn't feature a tricycle; it's a big wheel. And he doesn't look all that happy.

I want to see the combined aftermath of Businessman on a Cellular Phone Leaning on Stairs and Handgun in the Waistband of a Man's Pants.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
