Weird Craigslist Ad

I must have too much time on my hands… or be procrastinating.  I should be folding laundry.  I should be going to bed.  But NO, I’m reading the free ads on Craigslist.  I don’t even know why I bother, really.  Here’s the ad (full text below).  I’m sure there were TONS of takers.  Such primo stuff they’re giving away!
