Craigslist: Well Worth Searching, If Only for the Laughs

Notwithstanding the spammers, fake ads, and few creepers on the site, we find Craigslist to be an extremely helpful tool. We actually found our current home through a Craigslist ad. We have also sold and purchased many items from people's listings through the website. We've even gotten some great items - for free! Like for example, Lincoln's beautiful wooden high chair:

Lincoln is just about ready to take this chair for a test drive.
Because we search the site on such a regular basis, we have had the delight of encountering some pretty hilarious ads. Craigslist even has a "Best Of" list that we like to peek at every now and then. While there are some very kinky ads to watch out for on the list, there are some real gems with clean humor as well.

Just because we could, we decided to write our own quirky "Best Of" ad for the coffee table we're selling. It goes a little something like this:

Fine wooden coffee table in prime, seeks fresh companionship.

I'm 54" long, 29" wide, and 17 1/4'' tall - what's not to like about that? ;) Not to mention my shapely legs and attractive tinted beveled glass in-lays . . . But, I'm not only about appearances you know. My finish is warm and inviting. And you can really count on me, to be the solid, level surface on which you can unload your coffee table books. I'm not much of a talker, but surrounded with good conversation, I'll listen contently - forever really. I have lived a pretty conservative lifestyle having come from a non-smoking home and all. But then again, I'm certainly not your average new kid on the block either. If you look closely you may see a small chip on one corner of my glass, but it is very tiny and most often hidden by the wood on which it rests . So what do you say? Will you give me a chance? Call or text (***)***-**** if you're interested.

For your enjoyment, I'm providing you a list of a few of our favorites from the Best of Craigslist list. :)

What's the best Craigslist ad you've ever read and/or written?
