Some of these posts are gone already - most flagged, for some strange reasons - but I've been saving them. For posterity. Or momentary amusement. Or something.

Real friends are such a hassel. That's why I only talk to people on the internet. Except, on the internet, you apparently run into people who believe "rent a friend" is a viable business model, so I probably need to rethink my strategy.
Seeking hook hand for pirate show I am looking for someone with a hook for a hand and possibly a peg leg to play a small role as Captain Joseph Hook in a local production of Pirates of the Olentangy. I have attempted to use a false hook hand but it just isn't working out. I need a genuine hook hand. The creeepier and rustier the better. Your role in the movie will consist of a short fight scene and one line where you will have to say. "Shiver me timbers and shake me boots. I see land" If you would like to be considered for the role contact me via phone at [...] and leave a message repeating that line in your best pirate like voice. link
Frank thought his creepy, rusty hook hand had doomed him to a life of scorn and mockery. Little did he know his fifteen minutes of fame were right around the corner.
Squirrel Wanted Need pet squirrel to videotape on green screen for TV sitcom. Sorry there is no money involved but your squirrel can be FAMOUS!!!
I lost the link to this, and the post appears to be gone. At least, it doesn't show up when I search for "squirrel" on Craigslist.
Yes, I just searched for "squirrel" on Craigslist. That's the point to which creating these blog posts has brought me.
Taxidermy, Mannequins, and Bones, oh my So. We're a locally owned traveling art gallery based out of Columbus. We travel all over North America with what is, essentially, an art gallery within a 12x12 space. Long story short: We need some things to spruce up our little gallery. We don't have much to offer, unless you'd like to trade artwork, maybe some car stuff (I have several vehicles and motorcycles that need repair), et cetera. What we CAN do is put you and your business name in our catalogs, websites, et cetera. We get lots of exposure to MANY different types of people, all age ranges, all over the world. We've been featured on TV, Radio, Popular internet sites, publications, DVD, news papers, etc. etc. We'll take ANY taxidermy pieces, mannequins (from stores or wherever), and even your miscellaneous animal bones! (PLEASE do not go out and kill any animals. We want nothing to do with that.) We can work something out, let us know! link
These folks seem to be legit. I appreciate their entreaty to not go out and kill any animals simply to fulfill their Craigslist request. It's just if you have "miscellaneous animal bones" laying about. You know. Like in the junk drawer or the basement or the isolated cabin up in the mountains. Everyone's got some there, right?
Half a MEGAZORD! Do your action figures need some new threads for stepping out on the town? Do Barbie and Ken need a kinky edge to their role play scenarios? Shown here is half a Megazord, for whatever reason you might want it come and take it. link
I have nothing to add to this. Awesome idea.
