      I hate to make fun when people are suffering…but if there is some sketchy barter items, I may not be able to help myself. Seriously though – I hope the area is recovering well.

  1. I don’t know, Susan…I’m thinking you should call up the chicken mascot costume people and snap those babies up. Every blogger needs a couple of mascots, don’t they 😉 ?

      Seriously! I drove by a giant chicken in front of a restaurant today on a road I have never been on before and it was a really artsy looking one. I almost pulled over to get a picture with it, but my kids were the only ones with me and I don’t think my 3 year old would have taken a photo to my specifications.

  2. OK, now I’m going to have to go back and read your other posts in this series. 🙂 Also, you were so right about Courntey’s hair; I should just chop mine off now since I give up.

    Lastly, I totally want that giant Chewbacca PEZ dispenser. The Darth Vader bobblehead really is the icing on the cake for that listing.

    As a long-time resident, I nominate Knoxville, TN, for your series. Given the nightly freak show that is the local news, I can only imagine the joys/horrors of our Craigslist listings. 🙂

    First of all, LOVE the new site, girlfriend! I’m wondering how much longer before I tire of my own. :-/

    Anyhow, onto the gift that keeps on giving, which is this series:

    Allow me to say right off the bat that I am mildly disappointed that the Athletes Foot/Toe Fungus kit doesn’t come with a bottle of Febreeze. I mean, really?

    And the Pez dispenser! If I develop a full-blown Chewbacca obsession, I’m sending you my therapy bill.

    Thank you, also, for the kind mention at the top of this post. Now, if the rain we’ve been having manages to stay away, then, maybe, I’ll live up to your hype by having some decent hair this weekend. lol

    Hugs to you. Thanks, again, and have a good weekend. <3

      I just felt like the old site was ugly and cluttered. This one is simpler and cleaner. Since I may never see you in person, all I have is your headshot to go by, so you can let yourself go and I’ll never be the wiser :o)

        If by letting myself go you mean simply venturing outside on a day that has 90+% humidity, then, sadly, I’ve let myself go all week! lol

  4. 1. It’s never vanilla ice cream in these cases, is it?

    2. I want those chicken suits. Can you imagine? Just a random Thursday at the mall. Or Wal-mart. Except, in Wal-mart, people probably wouldn’t bat an eye.

    3. I vote you check into Gastonia, N.C. next. It’s our next-door neighbor here in Charlotte, and subject to more than its fair share of ridicule. All in good fun, of course. Gastonians have to go all the way to Waxhaw to get their lion rabbit fix.

  5. Based on the rumored desperation of people who thought it would be great to raise backyard chickens, I bet that person can get someone to bring him some. (Where I live there is even a chicken rescue. That’s so sad.)

  6. OMG OMG OMG, ewwwwww at the chocolate poop stain on the bed. Come on now. LOL!!! Also these are hilarious. It’s amazing what people are looking to buy/sell online these days. And I wasn’t entirely sold on the Chewy, but the added Darth Vadar really made me reconsider, HA!

    Hope you had a very happy SITS Day and really enjoyed being here today 🙂

  7. I just read through the whole series. All I can do is shake my head. Hilarious! I’m scared to suggest it, but how about DC? I can only imagine what my neighbors have posted!

    • Susan Maccarelli

      The whole series? Did I destroy your faith in humanity?? DC is a great recommendation. Watch for it in future posts!

  8. Ha! I love looking through the Best of Craigslist periodically for stuff like this. The stuff that people choose to write and put out there never ceases to amaze and amuse me. An ugly horse? Smelly feet? You can find it all on CL! 🙂
