People Are Sharing BadStockPhotosOfMyJob On Twitter And It's Even Better Than We Expected

by Elana

Stock photos serve a lot of multimedia purposes, especially for those of us who need to share images alongside stories! Over the last few years as Internet meme culture has propelled forward and transformed into an unstoppable machine of humor, we've even seen characters, stories, and singular stock photos become iconic memes!

And that's not even where the usefulness of stock photos ends because a new trend has emerged on Twitter and we are so here for it. Using the hashtag #BadStockPhotosOfMyJob, people are searching their job title and sharing stock photos that pop up. The results have been more hilarious than expected, whether you know what their job is or not!
