best of craigslist

This afternoon I was listing something for FREE on Craiglist, and had to peruse the "Best Of"..it is one of my favorite weekly reads. The most entertaining part is that many of the ads nominated for the Best of Craigslist are not intended to be funny. Here's a little gem from today.
Oh and just FYI: if you are looking for PG and below reading, you may want to skip following the link to read more. Or you may want to live a little.
" PINK PLASTIC LAWN FLAMINGOS
three pink plastic lawn flamingos, the momma, the daddy and two babies. in good shape except the momma has a bullet hole. will trade for a good dog or weed eater, will also consider any kind of alcohol as long as it ain't been opened up."

I was dying over the math as well... this person is just brilliant. I can't help but wonder about the circumstances in which Mamma ended up with a bullet hole. This entire post has opened me up to yet another thing I was lacking in my life, thank you. Did you see the posting, "Nemesis required. Six month project with possibility to extend"? It's priceless.

Thanks for the laugh! In fact, my husband is still laughing about it. I can hear him from down the hall.
