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.

... I think a competition would really help to open everyone's eyes to the real potential of the site. Too much time has been spent with typical, antiquated ideas. Let design professionals with new ideas have a crack at the site and you'll be amazed at it's potential.
