The Best of Craigslist — 5 Posts to Make You Laugh or Go ‘WHAT?’
Craigslist might just be the most interesting destination on the Internet. Whatever you're looking for -- be it a new car, a job, a relationship, free firewood, etc. -- you can likely find it on the giant of online classifieds. But, every now and again you'll come across an ad that makes it to the "Best of Craigslist," and these are usually incredibly outlandish or hilarious.
Here are some current ads on Craigslist that have made the site's "Best of" section:
With a promise that the ducks would be unharmed, one person in Austin is looking to "rent" live ducks for a party game. The game?
"Ducks will be gently secured into passenger seats of model train set. origami hats made of 1, 5 and 10 dollar bills will be placed on each duck's head. Guests will pay a dollar for an opportunity pick a hat from a ducks head as a prize as the train passes by them. One dollar per attempt (lap around tracks)."
It looks like a typical ad for a one-bedroom apartment in L.A., but after the typical introduction of rent, amenities and the promise that it's "perfect for a college student," that is when you get to the pictures.
Looks like a pretty open floor plan. Check out the other pics here.
The ad says it all: "I am looking for an R. Kelly impersonator to follow me around this Saturday and narrate everything I do as if its a part of the song "trapped in the closet". Hourly rate is negotiable, all applicants are subject to audition. Looks are irrelevant."
At least looks are irrelevant.
Instead of an ottoman, would you like to use a servant "furniture fellow" instead? He sounds like a gentleman:
Ever imagined having an attractive man kneel chivalrously on the floor while you comfortably rest your favorite heels on him like a footstool? Perhaps decadently flicking through a copy of Vogue magazine as you do so?
Or maybe simply using him as a chair or a convenient & portable table for your cocktail glass?
Get treated like a princess by a polite, intelligent, sane & respectful gent who just happens to enjoy being used as "furniture" by ladies.
No ad, just an outspoken accomplishment spread across Craigslist. A humble brag? No, but an accomplishment nonetheless. And apparently this is a famous chef.
So, I just need to tell the world because I am so happy that I have finally accomplished something that has been 3 months in the making.
I farted on every single one of my 37 employees.
The initial fart began on January 21st, 2008 while I was expediting at my somewhat famous restaurant in the meatpacking district.
Lets just say, I am a chef, I dont know if I would call myself world famous, but I am definitely known in and around NYC.
I have had several specials on Food Network.
