Women Laughing Alone With Salad

In my time as a freelance writer, I’ve had some experience working with stock photo libraries, and let me tell you, stock photos are weird. Sure, one can get a lot of use out of pictures of a soccer crowd or a U. S. Army soldier, but can you tell me how you’d use a stock photo of someone in a gorilla costume sitting in a office meeting?

Anyway, I bring this all up because the blog The Hairpin has created a gallery of one weird stock photo phenomenon: Women laughing alone with salad. The blog has found fifteen examples of this stock photo genre which only leads to one wondering what the meaning behind “woman laughing alone with salad” proliferation is.
