stock photo lady meme: holding gun

 

For as long as I've been on the internet, my greatest love has been extremely strange stock photo compilations. Of course, there's women laughing at salad, Hide the Pain Harold, and the kid with a gun, but there's one that stands above all the others. Although, hey, just for old time's sake, let's get another look at that gun kid:

That's really the great thing about stock photos - they suggest so many bizarre lines of thought, like "Under what circumstances were these photos taken?" and "Who would possibly want to use these ever, let alone PAY for them?!" And that all leads us to Old Woman With Weapons - which is just the name I use to refer to this particular stock photo model, although it's not entirely accurate. See - she is one of the most prolific stock photo models I've ever come across - with literally HUNDREDS of random stock photos littered across sites like Shutterstock. And while she has plenty of the kind of photos you might expect from an elderly person - lying in bed, looking sad, smiling with grandchildren, etc., there are a SHOCKING number of photos with her straight-up threatening people with various weapons:

...and so on. I'm not kidding around when I say there are probably a few hundred of this sweet old lady violently threatening some unseen individual, always using some kind of unexpected weapon (or just awkwardly holding a handgun). It's genuinely incredible, and has been the subject of memes for years now:

But it has all culminated in this - the perfect representation of the Old Weapon Lady meme: an iPhone "Memory" montage set to the most appropriate music imaginable by @leagalicious. Enjoy this incredible barrage of bizarre, contextless photos of an old woman flashing money, sucking in an inhaler, and threatening everyone:
