The Great Craigslist Scavenger Hunt Thread!

Hello Swamp,

Most of you are familiar with the site Craigslist.org, a glorified newspaper classified section on the internet. I am proposing that we use the wonderful tool as a little game. We will have a contest to see who can find the wackiest entry for a specific category.

Examples:

A link to your entry :

http://chicago.craigslist.org/nch/zip/966280884.html

or if you're feeling adventurous (and don't want to risk the entry being taken down) a screenshot of the entry:





Please use your head when posting and warn us before you link us somewhere scary! Also don't post non work safe images, duh!


The first contest is...



Most unusual item off of the "Free" section!




Good luck! Let's say this contest will last 5 days, so until the 29th!

I love this idea.


I'll start with:

Free Breast Pump Accessories.


That was surprisingly easy.


EDIT: I think this trumps the last one

Free use of hunting dog for anything but hunting.

Very funny read.

How about a free cup of tea. We Brits are so generous.

Okay, my brother brought this one to my attention: http://www.craigslist.org/about/best/hou/877016377.html

Yeah, that's awesome


And Shepherds we shall be
For thee, my Lord, for thee.
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand
Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti.

OMG Jedi Knight 4!!!

Ok, so I think I may have just accidentally won the Internet. I totally just stumbled upon this, remembered this thread and thought I'd share the horror.

http://kansascity.craigslist.org/spo/1008380738.html

Look at the last picture on there. He's a Furry. He's a Furry selling his punching bag. Right in my hometown.







If it gets taken down, here's a screen grab of the post.

Oh my.

That's awesome.

Also, I propose that we take out the category of "free stuff", just to get this thread moving along. It has so much potential.

Ok, so this craigslist post in my area is 100% not a joke and this image is really the guy asking for help. Linky I feel really bad for the guy but is this really the best picture they had?

In case it is removed, here it is:




My house was robbed last month, they took everything from us (except for my dog) I do not have much money but I will pay you what I can afford. I need anything and everything including pictures, chairs, tv, couch bed's and mattress's table and chairs etc... Please call me at ***-***-****

Aw, Rhett, that must have been awful for you. I hope that there are some locals kind enough to step up and help you
recover from this traumatic experience.
