So many things in the text of this made me chuckle. From the title down to the description. Had to share. I mean,who can't use a Fold in Mayor?

Well, only if the fold in Mayor is named Mira.

Evening I giggled.

What I'm always dying to know is, are these just horrible typos - or does some poor person really think that should be spelled Mayor?!

Autocorrect has done some funny things to me so I'm really hoping that is it. :)

Maybe it's the crack-smoking mayor of Toronto at work! I've seen some spelling doozies at work that definitely aren't auto-correct. But this iPad has made me look like an idiot on more than one occasion too.

This one is for the person who wants something that's "genuine" western. I've decided all "custom" tables are becoming suspect on CL.

The ad says, "*Measures 43" in diameter, 16" high
*Top is solid wood CVG Fir and has been distressed for character
*Legs are 4 real cowboy boots

$115

Is anyone else tempted to email any of these sellers and say, "Are you actually seriously hoping to get paid for these things?"

I mean is anyone seriously thinking someone will buy this stuff?? I know there's "a fool born every minute", but really...the things people are trying to sell just make you wonder. And to think they actually drive and vote.... scary. :~)

If someone could wear the size of those boots on the "cowboy boots" table, they may be worth the $112 price for the table!

The table reminds me of a joke that I played on my husband using my boots in our bedroom one night last year. It worked! DH was crawling into bed when he saw the "figure" hiding beneath the curtain. :)

OT a bit, but it bugs me to death (well, maybe not to death) when someone puts $1 as the price that shows on the search list and then inside the ad, the price is $150 or something.

I think they do the $1 thing because of scammers who only reply to ads for expensive things. Scammers (the pro's) don't open the $1 ads.

My spouse is suffering from computer-induced tennis elbow and I think that desk might actually not be a bad thing! Some of the ergonomic stuff for gamers is a blessing to old people who work on computers. Still, it's sort of tacky and there's no place for coffee. I bet it's being replaced with one that has a cup holder.

This 'faux polar bear rug with zip off head' from RI appeared on the Maine CL today. Seller is casting a wide net for buyers.

"This is a very nice & realistic looking bear rug. Can be used for rug, or hang on wall. It has a zip on/off head (brass zipper). Measures six feet with head on & five feet with head off. It measures five feet to tip of arm & three in torso area. It was just sent to be professionally cleaned & looks great.
If you have any other questions please call, I will try to answer or send more pictures.
Asking $650.00 or best offer."

Maybe a Celtic Dragon Throne? Only the chair is for sale, but if he includes the sword, gargoyle table, and dragon goblet, it would probably be even-steven. ;)

Celtic Dragon Throne - $500 ( Ohio)

This is an awesome chair! weighs about 90 pounds execelent condition and has engraving on the back as well I am only selling the chair in the photo, nothing else. This would really set off the right collection.

List price is $695 plus shipping plus an extra $98 shipping on to, for a total of over $850,

But you can get it for $500.00 OBO

Lov, aw, that would be so much fun! Thanks for the offer.

Aok, yes, Raleigh is so much closer and I know it pretty well-went to undergraduate at Wake Forest and then lived in a small town north of Durham. Your father's unit is great. I do love those. I do want to redo my kitchen. I do not have a DH who agrees with either of those statements. :(
However, I am thrilled that you offered and posted a picture. Just out of curiosity, when is it due to be removed? I am kind of tempted despite what I just said. I may be down that way in May. Oh, and why is it that the clocks are always the parts that quit?

I hope you come back to see this aok. If not, I will try to email you. You can email me too to take this off the board. :)
