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 stockphotoswap@gmail.com. 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 stockphotoswap@gmail.com

      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.

      New post prediction: next week sometime there will be a post featuring fake movie sequels.

      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.

    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?

  • deleted5907874

      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.
