I actually never knew this was a thing, but there are apparently bots that create phone cases from stock images.

Andy Baio stumbled across a treasure trove of iPhone and Samsung cases being sold on Amazon under the brand name “My-Handy-Design“. It looks like whomever is manufacturing these cases has a plethora of Fotolia stock images which they then imprint onto cases for various iPhone, Samsung, HTC, and Sony Xperia models.

That’s all well and good, but let’s take a look at some of the shockers they offer.

There’s even a case to let the ole’ gals know you have erectile dysfunction.

I’m not sure how many pages of products they really have, but they have many more odd cases, some with old gentlemen, ladies pleasing themselves, dildos, a microwave, the braille alphabet, and much more.

I’m not really sure why they thought this was a good idea, but what is even more concerning is that there are people actually buying these cases.

For instance, here is one of grandma puffing on an inhaler. The verified purchaser rates it 1/5 stars because of the COLOUR, and not so much the fact that there is a grandma on the case.

The cases sell between $22-25.
