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

      Dammit Mac, I already gave out a reminder on Cat Saturday yesterday, remember?

      Also: the first rule of the Chive is: you don't talk about the Chive…

      How the hell does saying "testicles" get 45 thumbs up? Mystifying.

    A lot better than the Prom post.

      I hope you aren't talking about the kid who wanted to bring a porn star to prom, because that was awesome.

  • rphilman1

    Clever idea! However, I do not have any physical prints these days. Looks like it's time to head to… Walgreens?

    • kevin

      All the major department stores have a usb/memory stick photo printer area.

      • Tebowned

        Remember, there will be some nerdy manager who will call this stealing so be sure to just put your photo in front of the stock photo.

    • skoalbucs

    All fun & games until someone gets caught by a store without a sense of humor….

    • Judsonian

      Not stealing or removing … leave the original pic in and just cover with the swap …. and no balls or cocks ….

      • Kyle

        Wait a minute…… no balls OR cock?! Well, i guess I'm out then:(

  • digitalpimp

    Incidentially, SPSO is also an acronym for Scottish Public Services Ombudsman. That's your tidbit of knowledge for the day.

    • Ray

      Thank you for yet another useless fact in my damn head.

      • digitalpimp

        Honestly, I just like to say Ombudsman.

        • Huddo

          One of very few words in the English language borrowed from Swedish, I believe. Smorgasbord and Fartlek are the others. Honestly, I just like to say fartlek.

    So i guess we will have to use tasteful photos?

    • Johnny Two Toes

      That just means no nipples showing.

      • Baron af Puck

        just do it the Chive way, aka take it from Reddit and if you're really ambitious, add some text that makes it look like a so-called "Chiver" sent it in.

    • YoMamma

      What? Why?

      Yup, seems like a guy that needs a good old fashion decking. At least an open hand slap just to see if he's an ok dude or not.
