Goofy Craig's list ads

Today I've seen two 'they can't be real' ads on CL. The first one was in the Barter section. A guy was looking for a free car for his wife. The only thing he asked is that the car runs and starts on it's own power, runs well in forward and reverse and is automatic and that at least 2 of the 4 brakes work.

There was a lot more to the ad than that, but that's what he was looking for. I thought, 'oh, a car for his wife. How sweet.' -- until I saw that only 2 of the 4 brakes have to be in working order.

And could the following be a serious ad?

Most people don't know that butterfly terds are great for furtelizing dandelions. I have a five gallon bucket of them I will be giving away for free. There is a one gallon limit per person. Act fast they won't last long.

Haha, that's pretty funny, it's probably real. Too bad the person can't spell, but then again, he does have a buckets of butterfly droppings, and god knows how he managed to fill them up!

it must be true

It is absolutely true. Anything I read on the Internet is fact beyond dispute.

Actually, it's pretty funny...

Here is one someone emailed me. There are some interesting people in this world

Actor needed for emotional role – One day high pay

My deceased aunt gave my two kids a Cocker Spaniel a few months back. The dog has been a terror and become overwhelming for me. I am a single father raising two young children. I cannot face telling the kids that the dog must go. I have found a good home for the dog, and just need someone to transport the dog, and play the villain.

Premise: You will be the dog walker hired by daddy (me) to walk Skittles. I will introduce you to the kids, and you will tell them you are going to help Skittles get her exercise when Daddy is too busy to walk her. At that point you will walk Skittles to your car and take her to her new family 20 minutes from my place. Then return holding just a leash. The story will be that Skittles broke free of the leash and took off. At this point prepare for crying, things being thrown at you, and possibly cursing. My kids are young and dramatic, their girls.

Pay will be $500. The job will take roughly 2 hours at best.

This job is ideal for an actor looking to diversify their role base, or someone who genuinely likes to make children cry. Acting experience is a plus, but not necessary. Please inform me of any prior experience in this kind of situation.

I'm wondering if he had a wife at one time and conveniently eliminated her in a similar way.

First the wife. Then the dog. Better straighten up kids, you may be next. J/K
