Reminder – Operation: Stock Photo Swap Out (Callout)

We here at theCHIVE firmly believe in pointless shenanigans. The next frontier of which is Operation Stock Photo Swap Out (SPSO). Here’s what you do: take a stock-ish photo of you or your friends (the more random the context the better) and sneak it into a picture frame for sale at your local home decor store. Then snap a photo of the frame for sale on the shelf with the stock photo swapped with yours and send it to Leave the frame and new photo for sale for others to stumble upon. We will post the best-of next Tuesday. Now go get stocky, be tasteful and creative!

Photos submitted to the chive submit will not be counted. Send your photos to

    The first rule of Operation Stock Photo Swap Out is you do not talk about Operation Stock Photo Swap Out

      yes. Let’s post a picture of a part of Americans history. Lets show the world how discriminating and racist we were, have become, and still are today. Your idea will prosper into more than likely the dumbest idea on this commentary. please see yourself to thechive”close” window symbol.after reading this. Thank you.

    If I was 12 this might sound like a good idea…

    • h2opolodood

      Way to almost exactly copy family guy dude. If somebody liked that style of comedy, yet somehow hasn’t seen family guy yet, and they could guess your hilarious tone through text, they’d probably think you’re hilarious and original.
      Or maybe if they had the 12 year old maturity you’re making fun of.

  • Mom in college

    You people are ruining my chive experience. :S Grow up.

    • h2opolodood

      KCCO lady, you put yourself out there, don’t let their ignorance mess up your day.
