The Gazette needs new stock photography…

8:04 PM EDT on April 21, 2008

So, I stumbled across the graphic below at OKGazette.com. Apparently, it is an ad/link that promotes the newspaper's free online classified section.

Unless you're really naive, you may have noticed that The Oklahoma Gazette decided to use an image of an old farmer holding a big white "For Sale" sign in front of a questionable looking crop to promote it's free online classifieds. Now...I'm not sure if the Gazette's Web Developer has a great sense of humor (and a lot of pot for sale), or if this was just another passive aggressive attempt by the staff to show the people at Look at OKC the stuff they continue to get away with, but what I do know is this:

If the Gazette is supposed to be cool and alternative, couldn't they at least use modern stock photography?

Anyway, because I'm so handsome, I'm not going to bother answering that philosophical question. Instead, I'll just point you the picture of the farmer turned realtor at ClipArt.com. I'll even give you a link to the image collection that the picture came from. If you're lazy and don't feel like going to ClipArt.com, I posted some of the better ones"“along with some local businesses and the people who could possible use them"“after the jump. And I did this because I'm handsome.

Okay, I'll admit. A few of the pictures above didn't come from ClipArt.com, but they did come from the Internet. That's close enough for us.
