    so many amazing possibilities went through my head reading that list that my mind is kinda blown right now.



    Well I guess it’s not too much to list after all.



    Some twisted part of me just wants to quote that listing in everything I post.


    Koala Bear (Aurora)

    I have a three year old Koala Bear named GumNut, that I’m desperately trying to find a new home for. I bought him back in January figuring it would be an awesome pet that would enjoy living in my greenhouse, sadly I was wrong. I paid $3200 for him back in January and I’am not sure what the used Koala Bear market is like in a good economy or the one we have now; so I’am open to offers. Please use some common sense before contacting me, don’t be an idiot, I’am not interested in trading my Koala Bear for your busted up 1980’s Camero, pictures of your naked wife, or an offer to paint my garage door.

    GumNut’s Stats:

    The Good

    *He is somewhat housebroken, uses a cat box most of the time.
    *For the most part he is very quite; this also falls into the bad category which we will touch on in a moment.
    *He eats spiders, (not kidding) we haven’t had a spider in our house since we got him.
    *Hates watching Desperate Housewives, used to be my wifes favorite show until GumNut bit her for changing the channel from Jeopardy, to Desperate Housewives.
    *Gets along well with one of my two dogs.
    *Loves to go for car rides.

    Now for the Bad:

    *He eats a lot of eucalyptus, which is not as cheap as I expected.
    *Apparently eucalyptus is like a drug for Koala Bears, when GumNut is coming down from his high he becomes very violent and aggressive.
    *He raped and killed my wife’s cat “Miss. Kitty'” (Honestly, I wanted to put this in the good section because I’ve been trying to find a way to get that worthless cat out of our house for two years, thanks GumNut.)
    *He does not like Asian’s, I have no idea where this Koala was raised but someone of Asian Decent must have really mistreated him.
    *Loves Vin Diesel movies, not sure why, he just does.
    *Has extremely sharp claws and teeth which he uses often.
    *Loves shiny objects, steals and hides them frequently in my dog’s ass.
    *He is quite, and as a result has snuck in on my wife and I during intimate moments. I mind him watching; maybe it won’t bother you as much.
    * GumNut smells terrible and is not easy to wash. I had to hold a gas soaked rag over his mouth till he blacked out to get him in this tub for a bath.
    *Once he is in the water he is fine, getting him into the water is a challenge, he will scratch you, he will bite you, and you will bleed.



    Made me laugh so hard I started crying – one of those laughs that becomes breathy and overpowering because you know you shouldn’t be laughing and you’re trying to hold it in so others in the office can’t hear you. This can’t be real because if it is I’ll feel really bad for the koala… and that cat.

    I am seeking a digital photographer for a single white male. The purpose of the shoot is to have tasteful attractive and sexual NON-NUDE pictures of himself so that he can post them on the internet dating sites. I am brokering this deal for him. We seek the following:

    Good places/backgrounds for pictures of him

    Artistic Challenge:
    1)Pictures that enhance his attractiveness and diminish his undesirable receding hair line
    2) Pictures of him with his shirt off that enhance the attractiveness of his skinny build and make him appear more athletic than he really is.
    3) He has a crappy wardrobe, so we need somebody who can determine what clothing might make him more attractive as well.
    4) Pictures that may give women a wide variety of first look perspective of him, and the photos should say something about his character/ideology

    Job Requirement:
    We need 10-20 finalized pictures fulfilling the above artistic requirements
    Mastering of the photos so that they are high resolution and low filesize.
    Scalar/vector jpeg format so that the photos can always be manipulated to digitally scale without any disconfiguration

    Please email me with hyperlinks to your digital portfolio and briefly describe how you can accomplish the four aforementioned artistic criteria for a man that fits these specs:
    race: white
    height: 6’2
    weight: 220lbs
    bodytype: muscular but not toned
    undesirable features: thin hair/receding hairline and slight potbelly but otherwise no other visceral fat.

    Thank you,

    Seeking someone to check home for ghosts ( Blacklick)
    Date: 2010-01-20, 9:02AM EST
    Reply to: [email protected] [Errors when replying to ads?]

    I believe my house may be haunted with the ghost of a 12 year old boy who died of syphlis in the 1930s. Each night once the sun goes down I suddenly hear a loud grunting coming from one of my bathrooms followed by screams and someone yelling “ouch it burns”. This has now gone on for 2 weeks and I have also found some items such as my bottle of rogaine and deodorant misplaced throughout the house. I know it is no one who lives there as we are all gone during the day. I am looking for someone who can come and search my home for ghosts and if possible remove them. I would like something similar to the ghostbusters movie where you can capture this ghost and remove it from the premises right away. I cannot sleep at night as I constantly stay awake in fear that the ghost may take advantage of me sexually in my sleep. I do not care what you do with the ghost once you capture it I just don’t want it here.
