Toledo Talk

I want to live in the Old West End

I found this ad on craigslist and am still chuckling.

Upso, if this is your ad, all you had to do was ask, I would have done this for you. FYI, I'm not "fit", but am more "santa" figured.

40 bucks an hour? Seems cheap.

(I am going by what people make with clothes on.)

I think its pretty safe to say Phil Robertson will not be at this party.

This is not me. And I really hope it's not Upso. Or pretty much anyone I know.

Did you just Phil Robertson yourself?

It's not that there will be nude male bartenders. It's what kind of party has nude bartenders of any gender? Not sure I want to accidentally walk into that kind of weirdness at a party.

Hmmm. Sounds anti-gay by today's standards.

"Not sure I want to accidentally walk into that kind of weirdness at a party."

There's actually a pretty valid point here. That's the kind of thing you don't want being a mitigating factor in a future issue you may be involved in. "Well yeah, but I mean... you WERE at a party being served by naked bartenders, so..." ::jury collectively raises eyebrows::

Or, photos of you being served by naked bartenders end up on (insert social media here) (and you know they will) only to be dusted off and laid in front of you.....at that BIG job interview at some point in the future.......

I think I need to work out more. Seems like there's some moneymaking opportunities out there.

To be fair to hockeyfan, the job offer was listed under "Labor Gigs," and the headline is certainly one that is designed to generate clicks.

I suspect it is a fake ad designed either for lulz ("Ha Ha Ha! We get five idiots to respond!), free porn (GRUNT GRUNT FAP FAP FAP hot dude pic FAP FAP FAP), or blackmail ("Hey, Jayden419: we have your naked pic and we are totally going to post it all over the Internet and at your mom's house and at your workplace unless you give us $1000").

Craigslist is one f**ked up place.

I think "not wanting to go to a place like that" is not about the sexual preference of the hosts and guests, but more about the fact you'd probably have to have a bushy moustache, mullet, drive a van with shag carpeting, and carry a wide selection of cremes and lotions, just to "fit in".

As far as what I was looking for when I found that beauty, well, craigslist has become a form of entertainment for me. Comical ads like the one above are funny. Another humorous place is the "casual encounter" section. Some monitor instantly deletes every "Woman for Man" ad that contains a nude female pic, but there are tons of male genitalia pics under the "Man for Woman" section. Maybe the moderator is a scorned female.

But for some "clean" fun, there is a section along the left margin called "Best of craigslist". This section has the most humorous posts found on craigslist.

BTW Upso, what time do you want me there and is it o.k. if I wear a standard neck tie as I do not own a bow tie?

I don't think that is technically a hip check.
