Yesterday, I wrote about trying to sell my furniture on Craigslist. In case you didn’t read it, I have great news to share. We finally did sell our furniture. The bad news is that we now only have a small futon to sit on for a while. Luckily, this is only temporary as our new furniture should be delivered in the next few weeks.
Anyhow, back to Craigslist! As I delved into the world of Craigslist in order to sell my furniture, I began to browse a little. Afterall, I love a bargain. Would Indianapolis Craigslist have any low-priced goodies that I could snatch up? Would I find a rare collector’s item for pennies on the dollar? Would I score something for free off some stranger’s curb? Would I find some amazing new item that I never knew I needed but can no longer live without?
Hell no. I mostly found the usual stuff - baby clothes, furniture, household items, and electronics. However, I also found some things for sale that I find…um…strange. I am usually hard to shock, but Craigslist really surprised me. Apparently, there is a market for almost anything. Remember, these items could all be yours for the right price.
Exhibit A: Porn Star Breast Implant
This is disturbing and wrong on so many levels. First of all, why was this ”actress” selling her old breast implant? Isn’t something like that classified as medical waste? Secondly, what would motivate someone to buy a used breast implant? Is it a collector’s item to someone, somewhere? Thirdly, and most importantly, WHAT DID THE PERSON DO WITH IT ONCE THEY HAD IT? Let’s face it. We probably don’t want to know. Still, I can’t help but fantasize how the conversation would go between the buyer and seller of this item.
Buyer: ”Hey, do you still have the porn star breast implant for sale?”
Seller: “As a matter of fact, I do. Would you like to come over and take a look at it?”
Buyer: “Is it silicone or saline?”
Seller: “It feels like silicone.”
Buyer: “Great. Would you take $250?”
Seller: “Umm….I guess.”
Of course, this is just one of the many scenarios that could take place and many conversations that could have gone on. I’m dying to know what deal was struck over this thing, but I guess my imagination will have to do for now.
Exhibit B: 6 Arm Bong
Yes, you read that right. Craigslist is now the place to save money on your smoking gear. I have a funny feeling that this might sell a little better if it were up for sale in….oh….Colorado maybe? Oh well, there are plenty of people cruising Craigslist for a great deal on their next bong investment. You know, I’m all about saving money. What a great way to save some cash on entertainment!
Exhibit C: Underwear
Oh, come on! Is this really necessary? Couldn’t you have slid them off for a few and propped them up on a pillow or something? I like the color, but I’m a little unsure of the giant ass that they are on right now. I think I’m gonna pass.
