The Church's website contains a treasure trove of stock images, many of which are uplifting. Unfortunately, a bunch of them are unintentionally hilarious.

Did you know that LDS.org contains a vast, vast stock photo library? Sure, it contains pictures of fatherhood, motherhood, parenthood, the seasons, temples, scriptures, and all sorts of affirming stuff that you’d expect. But it’s also a Shutterstock of awkwardness, and our friends at By Common Consent have uncovered some of the better gems in the collection and compiled them in what might be the best blog post of 2015:

“My favorite part was when he hands the gun over to her and she uses his shoulder as a rifle stand.” “YAASSS”
“My favorite part was when he hands the gun over to her and she uses his shoulder as a rifle stand.”

“I learned how to make these homemade Hot Pockets on my mission to Arrrrhentina.”
"This is a ball."
“This is a ball.”
“I honor my Indian roots with my clothing, and I honor my Utah roots with my hairstyle.”
“I honor my Indian roots with my clothing, and I honor my Utah roots with my hairstyle.”

There’s more where that came from at By Common Consent.

One of your TWiM hosts’ wife is also a part of the LDS stock photography machine:

"Honey, where's that photo of you from the manual" "Why?!"
“Honey, where’s that photo of you from the manual?”
“Why?!”
