When old stock photos surfaced last week showing what appeared to be a young Amy Poehler, we knew it was just a matter of time before the comedienne mocked the photos herself. Wednesday night on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Poehler did just that, providing a funny explanation for the embarrassing shots of her in a candy-striper uniform.

It turns out, stock photo modeling gigs, along with donating blood, was one of the quick-and-dirty ways Poehler and fellow comedians in Chicago made money at the time. Hear the story at about 2:00 minutes in, after Poehler talks about naming her son "Abel" and the new season of "Parks & Recreation."
