If You Get Your Mind Out of the Gutter, . . . Would You Pick Up Mine While You Are There?

I have a confession.

Shhhhh!  Come closer.

I love Craigslist. 

There.  I said it,  and I feel so much better.

Seriously, folks. Craigslist is the best.  You can do garage sale like shopping from the comfort of your couch and laptop.  What's not to love?

So, every few days, I hop on over to the site, and just peruse the listings.  It's sort of like going through the classified ads in the newspaper, but virtually.  By just keeping my eyes open like this, I have scored some incredible finds.  For example,  I got my 3 piece wicker resin couch with cushions and pillows for just $80, and  . . . it was still in its plastic wrapping from the store!  Do you know how much those outdoor sofas run??  Ay yi yi!  $80 was an incredible deal.

(Here is a pic of a sofa that closely resembles mine. 
According to the Home Depot website, replacement cushions alone cost $299.00!)

Anyways, last night, I was doing my normal craigslist look-see, and I came across a listing for a "Weird Pink Sofa."  I had no idea what would constitute a weird pink sofa, so I just HAD to look.  Here is the listing and picture that I copied EXACTLY into this post.

We're moving and need to get rid of this couch. It is very weird looking and weird shaped and we got it free years ago and never used it. It is so ugly that most people who came to visit would laugh about it. All I know is that it's super heavy and I'm NOT willing to take it with us again. First person HERE gets it!

•it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests

Did this listing just say,"It is so ugly that most people that came to visit would laugh about it?"  Ugly ?!?Is it possible that someone had this couch in her home and did not know what this couch resembled?

Is it just me?

Please tell me that I am not the only one that thinks that this looks like a hoo ha? A va-jay-jay? A vertical smile?

Or am I the only one who has her mind in the gutter?

A weird couch? I'd say so!


  1. OH. MY. That's one "ugly" couch. Sorry, I can't help you out of the gutter!

  2. Now seriously, I've never heard it called a couch before.

  3. OH MY GOD. laughing hysterically....must share this immediately.

  4. That is something that men would feel oddly attracted to and not be able to figure out why...

  5. omg!!! its totally a vag couch! hilarious!!
    i love craiglist too.
    thanks for the kind words on my blog.

  6. Holy hoo-hahs, Batman! That couch is definitely a large-scale representation of girl parts. Wow. The mind just boggles ...

  7. OMG!!! That is totally a ho ha couch!! Who would have that... that is absolutely hilarious!!

  8. LOL! Yes, I think that couch looks exactly like what you think it looks like.
    On a less icky note, you did get quite the snazzy deal on your couch! :)

  9. Whew I thought you were going to say you bought it, and as I was reading I thought, but it looks like a fashina (that's what my two year old calls it- Mommy you have a fashina.)

  10. Oh. My. Gosh. SHe was probably afraid of describing it for fear of being bombarded with solicitations! Who in the world would ever have bought that in the first place? She described it perfectly :)

  11. So many questions...laughing too hard to write them...


I love, love, love to read your comments!
