HR and the Bad Stock Photo of the Week

by Frank Roche on September 2, 2011

in Bad Stock Photo, Humor

McDreamy…wearing a turtleneck…talking on a Princess phone…but there’s Gulliver in a Tie reaching up to grab me in my leggings. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! IT’S WORSE. I’M IN A BAD HR STOCK PHOTO!!!!!!!!!!!!

That’s the dream sequence going on with this photo from the County of Los Angeles Public Health Human Resources page. Check out the woman on the left. She was in a “Just came from yoga” photoshoot, then got Photoshopped into this picture. (Either that, or she’s stepping on Red Top’s foot. Or Red Top has a peg leg.)

I mean, nothing says HR and public health like doing the Wide Stance. Or thrusting your hands in the pockets of your pleated khakis. And I always think, “People are my most important asset,” as I casually sling my coat over my shoulder. But that’s me.

And those are definitely HR head angles. Apparently, they tilt their heads a lot in LA human resources. I wonder if it has to do with the number of earthquakes they get.

Here’s my stock photo recommendation of the week: Show the photo to a teenager. If they laugh — or even roll their eyes — get rid of it. And forget the dream sequences in your photos. They scare the children.
