I love Craigslist. It just doesn’t get much more entertaining. If I’m going to squander blocks of time from my ever-diminishing youth, I’d rather squander it at craigslist than just about any other form of passive recreation. I like it even more than reading user reviews on Amazon, and that is saying a lot. You can find ANYTHING on Craigslist. Anything and everyone. Trust me on this.
(Matter of fact, I might be hitting CL this weekend…while I was reading the Village Voice on the subway this morning, I came across an ad for a performance at BAM that I decided instantly I must see. No question about it. Four performances only, and if I miss it, God knows when I’ll ever get the chance to see it again–it’s not commonly produced. The last time I was asleep at the switch was during BAM’s Macbeth with Patrick Stewart in 2008 (am a fan of the Bard, not Captain Picard, thank you very much), and I’ve been kicking myself ever since. That show was the toast of the town, and I missed it! Well, it’s not going to happen this time around. Somewhere out there is a ticket with Miss Margo’s name on it, and I WILL get my mitts on it, even if I have to go with Dick Cheney (bet you that he is on Craigslist).)
Anyway, while searching Craigslist for parrots (don’t ask), I came across this gem of a post. I think it is hilarious. I’ve annoyed at least half a dozen people with it already, and now I’ll foist it on you. So funny! I nominated it for “best of craigslist,” but I doubt it will make it–it got flagged and removed pretty quickly.
