Seriously Flagstaff, what’s wrong with you and your residents?
If you can’t read all the fine print here, check it out full size over on Regretsy.
Would you wear a dinosaur costume and act as a nanny/butler for a year if it meant getting a free house? At least one person would. Here’s a little quote from his Craigslist ad:
Do you own more than one property? Do you have so many rental homes with no mortgage payments, yet you still feel unfulfilled? Tired of your illegal tenants whining that there are rats in the walls? Have you always wanted your own dinosaur? Now is your chance my friend.
In exchange for one of your properties, I will be your personal dinosaur for one year. I will be at your beck and call, 24 hours a day, wearing a dinosaur costume. The type of dinosaur is negotiable. I can babysit your children (references upon request), scare the mailman, wash dishes, entertain and impress your guests, and much more. (No sex stuff though, sorry.) I will make realistic dinosaur sounds, eat what the particular dinosaur eats and maybe even sit on a fake dinosaur egg, if you are so inclined. I am well educated, fluent in English and French (as well as dinosaur), can play several musical instruments and have no criminal record or outstanding warrants.
No follow ups have come out yet, which makes me think his venture was unsuccessful.

I had no idea how much I needed a new coffee table until I saw this ad.
“Nemesis required. 6-month project with possibility to extend
I’ve been trying to think of ways to spice up my life. I’m 35 years old, happily married with two kids and I have a good job in insurance. But somethings missing…I need a challenge, something to get the adrenaline pumping again. An addiction would be nice, but, in short, I need a nemesis. I’m willing to pay $1000 up front for you services as an arch enemy over the next six months. Nothing crazy. Steal my parking space, knock my coffee over, trip me when Im running to catch the Trolley or a cab and occasionally whisper in my ear, “Ahha, we meet again”…Just keep me on my toes. Complacency will be the death of me…Evil sinister laugh preferred…British accent preferred. Thirst for Evil Required.”
