Craig and his wonderful list

craigslist carousel horseThe good thing about Craigslist: It's a window into our fellow community members' wants, needs and aspirations. The bad thing about Craigslist: It's a window into our fellow community members' wants, needs and aspirations.


Good or bad, we'll let you decide...

Pick-up line at the co-op: commenting on a woman's seeds.

Because what woman wouldn't want to tag along on a "strip club adventure."

She hit him -- and now he's hitting on her.

This is actually... generous and helpful.

"[T]ell me how i told you to fill your crack..."

Things you learn on Craigslist: there are nudist swim parties. (Heated pool. Obviously.)

"Calling all ticklers of the capital region..."

That sounds... awkward.

We kind of hope they can work out the math on this.

Little known fact: dogs post in missed connections.

People paying other people's tolls seems to happen fairly often. Hey, there are nice people out there.

[A]nother factor that allows some politicians to slide into corrupt practices is the overriding notion that if they hadn't chosen to become "public servants" that they'd be making mega bucks on the corporate world. Which maybe they would. But it seems to give them license (in their own minds) to exploit any ethical grey area to make up for that loss of income.
