"Male Crested Gecko - approximately one year old. Adoption fee is $25."
Well, that's just false advertising. First of all, it's not free, and second, why would anyone give away such a
"Rock surrounding the fireplace. You remove."
Actually, I rather like the look of the stone in this fireplace, and I can't imagine anyone giving it away ~~ for free. It's rustic and very West Coast looking. It would look lovely in my cabin up at Whistler Mountain, don't you agree? I think I just might rush over there today with my back hoe and pick this little item up. Oh, wait, I don't have a cabin at Whistler Mountain ... or a back hoe. Darn the luck.
"Lou is a mean cat. She will probably bite and scratch you. She will pee on your carpet. She will not go out of the house. She is spayed. She has to go to new owners."
Well, that just says it all about poor old Lou. Will anyone give her a good home after that endorsement? I have a feeling that, sadly, Lou's days are numbered. Truth in advertising... Poor Lou.
"A new (used once) ankle brace. I rolled my ankle playing soccer but ended up not needing this brace. This is a medium brace for the right leg. You pick up..."
Just what we all need, right? A (used once) ankle brace. I'll bet there's a rush on this little item.
Can anyone see what's wrong with this picture? Anyone? I know you're all observant. What's wrong with this picture? Anyone?
The following is my personal favourite. It is a novella, complete with a back story all in one advertisement:
"I have a wooden mirror similar to the picture for pick up - except mine doesn't have the fancy carved artwork, however mine does have a small drawer at the bottom. I don't know wood all that well, but I'd say it's a Cedar/Red Pine colour?? Mirror can tilt 360. Currently the mirror is not assembled. It's in near-excellent condition, except that I have disassembled and reassembled it so many times (I move a lot) that the screw-holes have been worn through. A handyman could simply fill the current holes, re-screw them and VOILA - Good as new. I have all the pieces & screws. I've kept it in my closet for THREE YEARS waiting on a promise from my boyfriend to fix it for me because I love it. However, that never happened, and now I'm tired of it collecting dust. Pick up available today after 4:00 pm."
What, the mirror or the boyfriend?
