  • Craigs List Marketing 101

    Do you suppose you could shovel the Twinkies, Little Debbie, or Ho-Hos boxes out before photographing the interior? (I am easily amused...):
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

    It's his way of saying "Floor so clean you can eat off of it".

      To me it says, four wheel garbage can.

      And if thats the way he treats his body, I can imagine the garbage he's been feeding that truck...

        Reminds me of when a friend sold his nice Lark convertible on eBay. He took a picture of the front seat with the manuals (shop and owner's) that he was including, on the seat. I said that it made it look like he was covering up upholstery damage, when, in fact, the upholstery was excellent. This was a '60 Lark V8 that sold for what I considered to be a low price, about $8K. The buyer cleaned it up and took new pictures and sold it on eBay for more than $10K. It was a time when I was overloaded with extra cars or I would have purchased it.
        It is difficult to buy any reasonably decent, running pickup for $1K around here.

          I have just recently( within the past few months) started paying attention to Craigslist. I am pretty amused with some of the things that show up. Just this week I saw an ad where someone is trying to trade a Baptist Church for a luxury motor home!

            Does the church have "whitewalls"??? Some churches are movable, you know. In Hawaii, a group of members picked up their church and moved it out of an approaching lava flow we were told. Another one was washed across Ali' drive in Kona one year by a wave and the folks carried it back across. SOOOOOO, this may be a "mobile church" they are wanting to downsize.- - -no?- -hmmm, didn't think so. But you are right, Craigslist has some funnies and some strange ones. We have had a bit of success both buying and selling there, tho', just remember to delete instant replies that are all alike and usually badly worded and spelled, spam and viruses can come in droves.

              The description on this one made me chuckle... Especially the last sentence.

                How about a Cornbinder called "The Booger"?
