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..."

... [T]he primary issue is that no one uses intersections correctly as it is, drivers or pedestrians. It's as simple as "pedestrians have the right of way in the crosswalk, so don't act like a jerk and try to run them over when they're in it" for drivers and "wait for the walk signal and cross at crosswalks so you don't hold up traffic like an idiot/get killed" for pedestrians. ...
