ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Link (thanks, Jason Weisberger!)
I want a woman who laughs at salads…but not every time.
I’m obsessed with terrible stock photography. Not sure why this set became a meme – but whatever. More at my blog, if you’re into it – http://badstockart.com
Briefly tempted to Photoshop Crying Don Draper into one of those.
ch’uhhh! ^better to photoshop something heinous into the place of the salad.
Shouldn’t that be ‘White Woman Laughing Alone With Salad’? Do women of other ethnicities find Salad equally hilarious?
A good while back wasn’t there a trope or meme around ‘Black Woman With A Computer’ something like this picture:
Yeah, I obsess over the nonsense we’re expected to pay for at stock photography sites. I’m not sure why some of these sets become memes. I find almost all of it totally useless. I even have a whole blog about it, if you care -cheers http://badstockart.com
I’ve seen better salads on istock
With apologies to Neil Young:
“I want to live
with a Salad Bar Girl…”
The woman in the middle is weirdly far away from her salad, unless we infer she’s sharing it with the photographer sitting at the other end of the table.
Approach/Avoidance complex, with lulz
What’s so funny about salad?
Seriously. I’ve promised myself that once I hit 50, I’ll never eat salad again. Or cottage cheese.
stick a fork in it
Vegetables ARE funny!
“You want me to put that in my mouth?”
they are alone, for you see, as the sage homer and bart pointed out, you don’t make friends with salad.
(it’s just so catchy!)
This salad is hilarious!
The one on the left? I’d toss her salad….
When in reality a woman who becomes that hysterically manic with uncontrollable joy in her apt at the sight of a salad she, logically, probably just made for herself would be more appropriate as an ad for psych meds.
Easy nowadays for designers: “Go to photos.com and find a photo of a lady laughing with a salad. Keywords: laughing lady salad
Okay, we’re all set Dooley, run with it.
corn and butter
I wish salad brought me that much joy!!
Imma etin mah salad! HAHA!
I would NEVER let my woman alone with a salad like that.
You’re just asking for trouble.
In 2011, salad women are the new ukulele girls. Just look at them.
Ah, new sauce for >mfw posts on /ck/. thx!
A couple days ago I saw a graffito in a subway station where the tagger had spray-painted his name on the wall: SALAD.
What kind of a lame tag is “Salad?”
SALAD is â€œDallasâ€ backwards minus the one â€œL.â€ Makes you think!
i guess ‘salad’ is the new ‘cats’.
Be careful! It will shoot out of your nose!
I don’t know how they do it. I bet you could find Men Laughing Alone With… well, no, maybe not. Whether armed with beer, steak, football, ice cream, porn, or flamed hot rods, you don’t often find photos of men laughing alone, do you?
And men alone with salads… Christ, what a Bergman film that’d make.
You win the thread.
The three examples here on BoingBoing pulled from the site are all white women, but if you follow the link to the original site, 3 of the 16 women appear to be African-American.
What kind of dressing? French, Creamy Italian or Greek? :~)
Well, they’re not really alone: there is a photographer there too, no?
I’ll have whatever she’s eating
Woman on The Left (#1): “My God, this is the worst thing I’ve ever tasted!”
Don’t forget the internet-classic < http://www.cryingwhileeating.com/>Crying, while eating -site.
So confusing – I thought that only yogurt could be this much fun.
laughing WITH or AT a salad??
Actually, none of them is alone. There is always the person who took the photograph.
