Hey, big spender! (Craigslist is ridiculous)

Where else can you obtain three-legged pool tables with deeper cracks than Keith Richards' face? Where else can you unearth a “lightly driven” 1997 Mazda 323 with a spider infestation in the back seat? And where else could you find someone seeking two tickets to Game 3 of the 2002 World Series (understandable) in exchange for 1,900 pounds of bananas (not understandable)?

Even the most cursory Craigslist perusal confirms a notion The Doors hit upon 40 years ago — people are strange. When a seller offers a “milk-stained” prom dress or the spidermobile, it's best to look but not touch.
