Marketing at its finest!!! Craigslist style

I thought that you all would get a kick out of this.

On a regular basis, I scan craigslist.com looking for a good heavy bag that I can put up here at the house.

Anyway...this morning I came across this add (which looked typical...until the last line.)

Punching bag with stand - $150

I'm selling my punching bag and the stand it hangs from because I no longer have a garage to keep them in. Both are in excellent condition. You can pick it up in the evening from my apartment. The bag will fit easily in any car but you'll need a truck to get the stand in one piece, since it's tall and wide. If you seriously want it and you call in advance, I'll disassemble it for you to make for easier transport, but of course you'll have to reassemble it once you get it home, so, your choice.

Anyways, call or email me if you want a new punching bag. It's great for blowing off steam and it's way better than beating your wife. Usually.

I don't condone violence against women; however, you might want to submit that one to the Best of Craig's List.

Unless the wife beats you to the punch by putting you IN the heavy bag. Or a body bag. Same diff.

That is amazing.

So I am new to your blogs and would like to follow, but am just torn. Do I follow all of them or just one? Please help.

I was a little confused initially cos I thought craigslist was a dating site and wondered why you would be looking for a good heavy bag on there... You might have got more than you bargained for!

So he's getting rid of the bag and will now start whipping on the wife?? Or he got rid of the wife and no longer needs the bag?
