Funny things happen in blizzards. Sometimes those funny things include odd Craigslist offers.

Another Funny Snow-Inspired Craigslist Post

Baltimoreans freak out about snow. So much so that they drive like maniacs, buy out the grocery stores, and post very very strange things to Craigslist. Remember this winner from last month’s snow storm? Well, now it’s got a rival for oddest listing:

Twitter just alerted us to a poorly-thought out marketing campaign on Baltimore Craigslist this week. Looks like someone wasn’t paying attention in English class….

Earlier this week, Jezebel nominated this ad for a Baltimore sublet as “the cutest Craigslist ad of all time.” And, yeah, it’s pretty cute. Baltimore Fishbowl reached out to its creator, Aladdin Collar:

“I had started with a regular Craigslist ad with all the relevant info, but I didn’t get very good responses. I felt like I was running out of time and wanted to take control of the situation a little bit.

Baltimore Fishbowl Contributing Writer MV Banks writes the following column for The City That Breeds, and asks, “Huh?” to many of the weird and wonderful offers and asks on the local version of the world’s biggest classified section.

MISSED CONNECTIONS
You know that unsettling guy from the bar you were avoiding on Friday night, or how about that girl that won’t leave you alone at the gym?  Here is where you’ll find them, in their tragic, creepy entirety.

Sex: Female (for M)
Age: 21
Message: “You were the altar server at 5pm mass this week. I have always admired you from afar and think that you are very cute/handsome. I doubt that you have noticed me (I don’t go to any events but I am usually in church). If you happen to see this, or someone you know sees this, I would like to meet you and get to know you. I know this might sound creepy, but really I just don’t know how to introduce myself and can be shy in public.

Date Posted: February 5, 2013
Sex: Female (for M)
Age: n/a
Message: “We met tailgating and once at Mother’s. I know you’re married, but I want to be your dirty little secret.”

Questions Raised: Is there any fruit sweeter than that which is forbidden?  One thing is a tryst with a married man, a rendezvous with a Steelers fan is a whole other level.  A discreet appointment with a married Steelers fan may be on par with the apple in the Garden of Eden.  Tread carefully, miss, lest the snake of the NFL draw you into questionably territory.  I question your discretion, due largely to your mentioning so many explicit details of your meeting and flirtations out on the internet.

Date Posted: January 24, 2013
Sex: Male (for F)
Age: 26
Message: “for the one i pushed away:

I need to walk by flowers with someone who can share my face
and it looks like no one can take your place
and I could bleed in sympathy with you
on those days
and I could drink up everything you have
don’t let it go to waste

I could give you memories to rival Berlin in the thirties
and I really understand your dating bar ways
and I could bleed in sympathy with you
on those days
and I could drink up everything you have
don’t let it go to waste

Say something warm, say something bright
cause I can’t stand to see it when you’re cold
nor can I stand being out of your life
I could bleed in sympathy with you
on those days
and I could drink up everything you have
don’t let our youth go to waste”

photo 1“Knicks Hat”
Date Posted: January 15, 2013
Sex: Female (for M)
Age: n/a
Message: “Beloved blue Knicks hat we have enjoyed many games since 99. Our last venture was to see Manhunter at the Charles where we were separated. I miss you. If anyone came across this treasure with white stitching on the back please help us reconnect!”

Questions Raised: Missed Connections is often a place of loss and sorrow.  I can tell you now, after months of regular perusal, that it is not uncommon to read many a, “I’ll always love you.  I miss you forever and always.”  This one is particularly tragic to me.  I imagine you and your Knicks hat had many happy memories together, much like Elaine and her Orioles hat.  I hope your hat reads this missed connection, and finds his way back to warm your beloved head.

Maybe you love the Ravens. Maybe you really want to go to the Super Bowl. But do you really really want to go to the Super Bowl? Now’s your chance to find out, I guess: A guy who I feel I can safely characterize as a jerk posted an ad to Craigslist yesterday afternoon offering a free ticket to the Ravens-49ers Superbowl game in New Orleans. How sweet, right? There were only three catches.
