CLASSIFIED: For Your Eyes Only

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

 .

In the dark ages before the inter web and things like Ebay and CraigsList  newspaper classified ads used to be the way to try to raise a bit of extra cash by selling off things you didn’t need, or to advertise for things you wanted. They still exist although not nearly so popular as they used to be.

As with Ebay etc., you can find almost everything advertised in them, even the oddest things that either give you a ‘WTF’ moment or just make you laugh – sometimes both.  

Here is a short selection for your enjoyment.

  1. Not sure which I like better – the time traveler or the Mammogram dish-washer – what a time saver! 😀
    Back in the late 80s, a buddy of mine saw an ad for a few-years-used Toyota Supra, for $100. Yes, that was not a typo. He went to see the car, but the woman had already sold it. He asked her what the trick was, and she stated that she was divorcing her hubby, and had to split all assets 50/50. She figured at $100, the car would get her $50, which was enough for her to get really drunk! (Her words.) Sometimes the stories are better than the ads themselves!
