    Hmm, guess you need to be on the right side of those jokes.

    I did a double-take at first, but I think the whole “joke” there is Marketing / photography fail. The website is poking fun at really quite bad stock images provided by another site, rather than mocking the subject matter itself.

    I sense Offendedtrackworld coming on. Meanwhile:

    “He’s starting to ask questions, Jack. I’ve told him you’re Arab a hundred times, but he says the kids at school told him Arabs don’t suffer from rosacea.”

    Agreed. So, the question must be, why pick that particular theme for the fun poking?

    I raised a smirk 🙂
    Good pointing up of clearly crap, unrealistic and insulting characterisation of Arabic people.

    Makes mental note to use them in a presentation next time I’m in the Middle East…..

    I’m guessing because she’s an Arab who is amused by the terrible stereotyping of Arabs in these photos.

    Pretty sure it’s what bencooper says. No better way to get the stock art morons to up their game than draw attention to it

    To be fair, the knife/gun ones aside, most of the others are just typical of cheesy stock photography of any sort.
