Can you guess the reason?  This was rejected by 123, but they accepted it without comment after I asked for clarification.

model release or duplicate image?

Not appropriate for stock /Too Offensive / Improper for General Viewing

To understand just how funny this was, you need to know that I had a bunch of friends over for the holiday, and you need to know about Abuelito Carlo.  Abuelito Carlo isn't anyone in particular's grampa, we just all call him that.  He's a wiry little old Hispanic guy that looks like animated jerky.   He has bushy old man eyebrows, and a goatee.

So, I take a break from the festivities to check my email, and notice the rejection.  Someone hears me laugh, and asks what's so funny.  I show them, and pretty soon, everyone knows about it, and is amused.

Someone does an imitation of the Church Lady reviewing my image.  "Could that be... Satan?"   Then, someone yells, "Hey, Abuelito!  Did you know you're improper for general viewing?"  Carlo takes a look, and starts laughing.  He goes into the back yard, puts his hands to his head like horns, and starts dancing around, singing, "Improper for general viewing! Watch out!"

We all laughed our asses off.  I love my weird friends.

I had this happened to me recently as well. Same reason for rejection.

There's a first for everything.

My funniest rejection was when a 3D render of a Mermaid was rejected at Fotolia for not having a model release. I wrote to them asking where I should go to get it, Atlantis?

a while back I took a few images of a Chinese passport and Deposit Photos rejected for Porn materials! I swear I didn't put Chinese porn or sex in my keywords but I now wonder what the reviewer had on their mind  ;)

My funniest rejection ever came just recently, I filmed an Asian street festival, large crowds or mostly young Asinas and lots of food vendors and a concert stage.

SS rejected a few of the clips because:  Styling -- This clip has styling issues (cosmetic, pose, hair, wardrobe, prop, food, set/location is

I laughed, it's not like we all wore Hello Kitty outfits that day.  Guess the reviewer didn't like hoodies, jeans, ballcaps and backpacks.

Probably thought it was a Harry Potter character or something?
