craigslist


The local news here in Hooterville has clued me in to what a nasty, dangerous place this craigslist is. People agree to meet to purchase or sell something and end up raped or murdered in some isolated alley or parking garage. I'll stick to Macy's, thank you.


This cartoon is very old and very gross...it was drawn long before there was an internet or a craigslist.com.

LOL, I just called my husband out here and said you have to see this, so I showed him your entry....why you ask?? He just finished listing like 10 things on Craigslist!! He sells things on there all the time, we have three guys coming from Philly tomorrow..now I'm scared!

I've bought and sold on craigslist, but never gone to someone's home. It's always a "meet at such-and-such parking lot" kind of stuff, during the day, and Kevin does the exchange. People are creeps.

Love the cartoon. I hate it when I see mattresses for sale anywhere. ick

That cartoon is the exact reason I'm on a payment plan for my new mattress at Sleep Train =]

I hate craigslist.

That reminds me of a post I meant to wrote forever ago. The cartoon is TOO funny. (and sadly, true)

i cant believe he shot him in the head....


i miss being able to read your blog without the content warning. there are way more *ahem* adult blogs on here without warnings...

but hey maybe that's ok because they are european or something. i cant understand a word of the text but most of it sure looks like porn.

give the new rant a visit. everyone likes the alemanac.

Haven't plumbed the depths of Craigslist--a friend rents out a house via CL--but there are lots of other ways to buy used goods (flea markets, thrift stores, etc.).
As long as the mattress had been professionally steam-cleaned, I'd have no objections to it, whether his wiener had touched it, or not!

Great one! You rock, Russ!

Debra said...

his wizzing wiener?

Leigh said...

Have a great week! Leigh

My co-worker just sold her couch on Craiglist the other day... Scary stuff--she is never going to do that again. Eww..who would buy a mattress on Craigslist..eeeww.. Julie

It may be old, but it still had the power to make me laugh out loud!

I think Craiglist and Freecycle are great concepts, but you won't see me listing anything on there, EVER. My Mom mentioned yesterday that our driveway is so hard to find that there are a lot of people who have never figured out where it is. I said, "And I kind of like it that way!"
