Found on Craigslist can humanity get ANY LOWER?

vile and disgusting
vile and disgusting, click to embiggen

I heard about it on the news this morning and did a quick Craigslist  search and found one post on point.  Seriously, women are selling positive home pregnancy tests.  The purpose…to trick guys into marrying them.

Vile and disgusting.

And sweetheart, if you need to trick a guy into marrying you, is it really “love” or just some desire not to be alone?  Any guy that needs to be tricked really isn’t the catch you imagine, if he were and love was part of the equation, which it should be in my book, then he would have “popped the question”  What you are doing is plain evil.  Doesn’t even address what happens in 9 mos when you are supposed to pop one out.

I find the preggo selling positive dipsticks for this purpose a vile and disgusting waste of human flesh.  As reprehensible as this post is I still obliterated your phone number and address, consider it a favor.

If only I needed a couch

Spotted this ad on Craigslist today:

Couch saves baby from house fire! – $400 (Beverly Hills)

the magic baby-saving couch

Yes, you read that right. The couch that I’m selling for only $400 once actually rushed into a blazing house fire (not my own, I believe in fire safety, folks) & SAVED A BABY. What’s amazing though is that even after saving that stupid baby who started the fire anyway, this couch is in perfect condition. This espresso brown brushed canvas Pottery Barn couch that retails for $1500 is for sale for $400 because I got an EVEN BETTER COUCH (my new couch can unclog the sink & sing operatic versions of Motorhead which is more useful on a day to day basis).

*No need to ask about its availability, you’re reading this post IT’S AVAILABLE! Just ask when to come see & buy :)
** CASHIERS CHECK SCAMMERS NEED NOT INQUIRE – you’re wasting my time & yours. I don’t take cashiers checks from people “out of town on business”.

Those Beverly Hills couches–they’re so fancy.

A Craigslist Call For Help

We’re low on firewood, so I thought I’d check out Craigslist to see if anyone was giving the stuff away. That’s when I stumbled upon the following ad:

Hello I would like to ask someone to give an opportunity to my husband. He has 10 years of experience working as a painter. He knows how to paint with sprayers, rolls, brushes, and cloths. He also has two years of experience working staining fine furniture. He needs a permanent job. I understand the economy and business is extremely slow. If there’s anyone that may know someone that is hiring for a long period of time. We would appreciate. He also has some experience driving forklift. Any job as a painter, stainer or forklift will do! Christmas is coming and we would like to have a secure coming New Year! If there’s anyone that can give him an opportunity please email us back. The only bad thing is that he doesn’t have a work permit and his English is not so great. I will give 1 day free to demonstrate my work.Thank you

Kind of a kick to the gut. A reminder of how lucky some of us are.

Hey,
I FINALLY met Brad Pitt at “The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button” Premiere and I got a picture with him
HOWEVER it is way blurry…I was wondering if anyone was across the street where the fans were
caught us together in a photo ( I am a quirky PINK lady and I had on a pink velvet cape and a pink feather hat with pink furry boots). I sort of stick out :) LOL
Brad and I actually crossed the street together and I remember a TON of flashes going off
so I am just hoping someone got a shot of us !
I will pay for the photo OF COURSE !!

Local Tribute Band ISO New Lead Singer – Shhh!

Would you like to be the lead singer of a Pearl Jam tribute band?

Of course you would. You’ve been practicing lockjaw vocals and stocking up on flannel since 1992. Your time has come.

The L.A.-based band known as Vitalogy has taken to Craigslist in search of a new lead singer.

We have a lead singer, who is very good, but we are looking for a new lead singer (reasons need not be mentioned here.)

Just don’t tell Randy. He’s the current lead singer. And apparently, he doesn’t have internet access. Or, he’s just busy tearing up clubs all over So Cal. Rock on, Randy. Rock on.

The full CL posting after the jump…

I’m willing to pay 20 percent interest over 18 years. I am gainfully employed and just need immediate help to stem late payment fees and high interest rates. Would happily sign contract and even agree to direct deposit. I have a fully legitimate job which has a human resources department that can take care of the paperwork. I am not asking for any of your financial information. Just a guy in need of help. These are not gambling debts. They are all college and car loans and a small percentage of credit card debt. If you can afford it, I would really appreciate the assistance. Thanks.

The “economic slowdown” continues.
