Craigslist is chock full of unintentional laughs. Strange objects, overpriced junk, weird listings, bad art, and crackpots galore.

There's probably several websites dedicated to the wonders of Craigslist but so what? Just like nothing else is Silly Putty® no other websites are Bilge.

From Seattle Craigslist, posted 4/10/2010 in Gigs
In Need Of Scribe (Cap Hill)

___________________________________

Group of 4 self-proclaimed "think tanks" who are going to be brainstorming drunk for the better part of today and tonight. We develop great ideas for movies, characters, theories, and products. Unfortunately, the next day, we usually can't remember what were were talking about. Thats where you come in. We pretty much just need you to transcribe anything we tell you to transcribe. WE SUPPLY PEN AND PAPER. We will pay hourly rate of $12/hr plus one meal of food and one beverage per hour. This is no joke, serious inquiries need only apply. HS diploma is the only requirement we seek, well that and being able to write quickly. Give me a call. Adam 206 XXX XXXX.

_____________________________________




1. A "think tank" is described as a “group” so this "Group of 4 self-proclaimed 'think tanks' " might be a group of four groups.

2. Their genius cannot be doubted as part of the payment for the gig is "one meal of food." That's brilliant! Meals made of food...Why have I never thought of that? From this day forward there will be no more meals of rocks or mismatched socks for me, I will enjoy meals of food!

3. My buddy Sparky pointed out that this group can't be all that bright or creative if they didn't think to just acquire some sort of recording device which they could turn on once the “great ideas” begin to flow. (Bonus feature of that idea: The recording device would not require a meal of food.)

4. If you’re drinking so much that you can't recall what you were talking about there's a very good chance that the "great ideas" you came up with will only seem great to someone who is completely plastered.

5. If you’re drinking so much that you can't recall what you were talking about you should probably do some thinking about your drinking.

"drunk brainstorming"

Wasn't that a "That 70s Show" episode where they got stoned and recorded all their genius ideas?

Also intriguing: This person has been trying to sell these items for six months or more.


***Choice:Tough Cowboy or Brass Bears**Intriguing...

Isn't he so cute?! Even has his spurs all ajingle! He is 6 1/2" tall. I sat him in front of a mirror on my mantel for awhile. He drawed a lot of attention and comments. Wall brass bear pair is 6.5" and 4.75". More intriguing than a flat picture. Both for $25.--. Email for time and directions. Smoke/pet free home. Clearing out the china closet in hopes of selling my property soon. {I will revise or delete this posting when item is sold.}

From a description of a painting:

"This kind of art is not exactly impressionistic, but not really realism, either. The cowboys don't have well-defined faces, and neither do the horses. It's a great camp scene, best observed further away than up close."

Cursed Tiki


Date: 2010-05-11, 7:13PM PDT

Hand carved, cursed tiki. I found this while working in a wrecking yard. I pulled it out of a severly wrecked car that people definitly died in. Ever since i brought it home everyone in my house has had crazy bad luck. This thing is definitly cursed. My life is a total mess now thanks to this thing. So if u want bad luck or want to mess up someone elses life this is the item for you. I dont know how to put a price on the incredible bad luck this can bring so best offer gets it. I will not be held responsible for what happens to you after you obtain it. So use with caution.

ARE YOU A WRITER (Seattle Area)

Date: 2010-06-04, 3:42PM PDT


I need 1 or more writers to help with an online magazine base on the GLBT community and history as far back as the first person in this area.

This is a starting position any writers will need to under stand until this magazine sell ad space the funding to pay writers does not exist.
Once the first 1 to 2 issuses are mock up ad space and funding can be found to pay for articles and the likes.
If you want to try out and build you portfolio email an essay or article on how and why you could do this.........thank you

A few years ago I did a concept illustration of Washington Crossing The Delaware for an ad campaign. Maybe they need it with Fiber 1 Bars? Mind you, I was paid more than $100, and that was just for the rough:)
