Here at HuffPost Women we love our stock photos -- so much in fact that we often email particularly awkward, confusing and downright hilarious ones around to our whole team.

We also deeply appreciate the insights that stock photos give us into the world of women. (See Jezebel's day in the life of a stock photo woman or The Hairpin's "Women Laughing Alone With Salad.") Dear people who tag photos at Shutterstock and Alamy -- you know us only too well.

Since it's Memorial Day weekend, we thought that it would only be appropriate to see how our favorite photography databases would define "women grilling." It turns out that they have a variety of definitions of what ladies participating in this time-honored holiday tradition look like (although they pretty much all involve hot dogs). So we typed in "women grilling" and compiled what showed up. Click through the slideshow, and let the laughter begin.
