The Most Insane Stock Pictures of Bartenders

Looking at stock photography is like peeking into a parallel dimension, one where cats drive mopeds and deliver pizzas and women have to choose between salad and boxing. This parallel dimension is also home to an eclectic cast of bartenders who yell at their drinks, lose their shirts for no apparent reason and love nothing more than to feel the wind through their hair. Take a second and get to know these stock bartenders; they may not bring you pizza like everyone’s favorite delivery kitten (Why is there more than one picture of that?), but they will help inspire tonight’s cocktail hour.
