Just for fun. I've seen some really stupid stuff, but I don't think I've seen anything quite this stupid.

Years ago, in my earliest days of being on the interwebnets, the first discussion group I ever joined (LONG before the TDPRI) was yousuckatcraigslist.com. People sent in examples of outlandish, stupid, and ridiculous posts on Craigslist. Sadly, the site shut down in around 2014, but is still online if you want to browse through it. Regular members had their own catch phrases, (much like we do here with Bummed Shrits and the like) and "special" spellings. (Chi-wa-was, and arm-wares, etc) If you look through, I'm on there still as NoJazzHere. https://www.yousuckatcraigslist.com ;)
.....and if you think we TDPRI'ers are fast and loose with spelling and grammar, you won't believe how far some people go.

The number of people trying to sell cars and motorcycles without titles but at well above parts-vehicle prices is insane. Almost every add seems to include a variation of "no title but they're easy to get". At least to me that is crazier than some of the more esoteric items for sale out there.

Yes. That's like people that try to sell broken guitars, but "it's an easy fix." Well if it's so easy, why don't you fix it yourself?

Needs some guitar viagra!

Looks like Gibson Custom Shop forgot to add the BluePill™ caps to the wiring there.

My thoughts exactly! Hence my like-minded reply. :lol:

Viagratar?

Terrible case of erectile dysfunction!

The original and the Whip It video it was made famous by

And the headstock of - mine ! Yes it’s mine and no, it hasn’t sold yet.

I have played real wine red Paul’s from the late 70’s 😖 and - sawing off/reattaching the horn isn’t the worst thing that could happen to them…

Give 'em the beans!
On my local craigslist. The bit about the fuse plus the addition of "I know what I have" made me think he was posting it for laughs, so I messaged him, told him I thought it was hilarious and asked what kind of responses he was getting. Didn't get a response, so maybe he's serious?
