Craigslist.org, a great on-line want-ads site, certainly has its share of weird ads. They've taken advantage of this to create a "Best of Craigslist" section. Readers give the nominations. Though the site warns that "postings may be explicitly sexual, scatalogical, offensive, graphic, tasteless, and/or not funny."
Here are a few samples that amused me. And again, these are actual ads that people have posted.
Wanted: Taxidermist who watches a lot of Kung Fu. I am looking to hire someone with the means to obtain and stuff animals in fashions I choose, which will be Kung Fu for now. When I was younger I convinced a friend of mines dad to create two squirrels Kung Fu fighting. I still think about it from time to time and have decided to get my own Kung Fu animals, I understand this is a bizarre request. Serious inquiries only, please E-Mail me the species of animals you commonly hunt or can obtain and your rate for taxidermy of each in various Kung Fu poses. Mounting preferred. Once again I feel I must state this is serious. If you can show any of your previous work it will probably give you an edge on the competition. Please respond via/e-mail. Thank you.

Mow our lawn for a date! Hey boys. 'tis the season for lawn mowing and new love. These are the only two things missing in my life. First order of the business: the lawn. Our small front lawn, and largish back lawn have grown out of control after all the rain we have had as of late. It's about 1.5 feet tall, and growing taller by the second. We are four lovely ladies lacking a lawn mower. This is where you come in.
Second order of business: you and me. I'm a sexy young 20 something lady offering a date (my treat) in exchange for a mowed lawn. We will also offer homemade baked goods to sweeten the deal.
However this lawn may be more than you can handle alone. For this reason, my sultry single roommate has graciously agreed to offer the same deal for your friend who helps you out with the task. Let's go on a double date! You are also welcome to mow the lawn on your own, and pick a lucky friend to come on the date.
Who knows, maybe one date could turn into two (lawn mowing optional *wink wink*)
Serious inquiries only, we need this lawn mowed, BYOLawnMower!!!
No photos of your weedwhacker please.
Husband wants a rusty trombone for his birthday. My husband has asked for a rusty trombone for his birthday, which is Wednesday. I've scoured the pawn shops and music stores, and I haven't found one. I am guessing that rusty ones will be cheaper than new ones, and I don't know what the big deal is, but it's what he wants and he is very specific about it. I could have bought a dozen new ones at this point, but he says that a rusty trombone is nostalgic for him, so I suppose it will mean more. If you selling (or even giving away) a rusty trombone, please let me know what you have, how much it costs and how I can get it (will you deliver it, or will I have to go to you?). Also, suggestions on how to wrap such a thing? Please help, I am down to the wire on this thing and I don't like being this late with a gift!!!
Free Box of Magnum Condoms. I swear to whatever it is that i believe in, if i get any emails offering the use of this offered item with me..... i'll fill all 33 condoms up with yellow paint, and pelt every guy who looks like he might be the kind of douche bag who'd send such an email.
That said, it would be great if you were a chic or had a chic pick them up. I'm a girl. The box is a 36 pack with 3 missing and the rest are totally fine and untampered with, i just don't want a box of condoms too big for most guys sitting around reminding me of yet another failed relationship and my renewed sense of not getting laid. Not that I'd like to be, so don't offer.
Magic want to solve life's problems. If anyone has a magic wand that will solve all the problems in life, I'm interested in looking at it or buying it from you.
1970's Avocado Green Toilet. This 1970's beauty will take you back.....sit on it while leafing through a Reader's Digest, smoking a cigarette, watching Chico and the Man, and dropping the kids off at the pool~ you'll think you are in a time warp! It works fine other than the 119 gallons it uses to flush, and there are no stains or streaks. Come'n get it!
I'm sure I could sift deeper and find even better ones, but you get the idea.
