Random Reverse Response Friday

Editor’s note: CL is teeming with rapture based hilarity. So, since I had, for some reason, been in the dark on this whole “end is nigh” thing I found a good Armageddon post to respond to.

Editor’s note: Meant to say “toodles” not “toddles”.


Billionaire Estate Sale

Editor’s note: Under the banner of POV writing, this is the saltiest writing MLOCL has seen.

Free: Social Distortion Ticket

Editor’s note: This CL ad is from back in November and I did not save the replies as I did not have this blogject going at the time. However, this is one of the ads, along with this one, that got me thinking about how CL ads elicit responses that can be quite entertaining. So, this post is like a prequel to the blog; also, I’ve got ads in the hopper but nothing is ripe yet. Still got a CL jones? You can always check out our sister site.

Cheers,

H.D. Wimbledon, Esq.

Friday Fail

Gonna try out a new Friday feature. This isn’t good bye to the beloved Reverse  Random  Friday; it’s more of a see ya later.

Friday Fail: Almost every day I drive by a house that still has an absurd amount of Christmas decorations up. I tried my hand at an ad based on this situation:

for sale/wanted > free stuff

  • No one realized this was a joke.
  • There are way too many people looking to score Christmas decorations in May.
  • This posting has been deleted by its author.

So I tried to take the same concept and use a bit more hyperbole.

for sale/items wanted > free stuff

  • Art, trash…if it’s free people want it.
  • This posting has been deleted by its author.
  • Some of the unfunny, mundane responses after the jump.

FÜNKE & ASSOCIATES SEEK LICENSED PROFESSIONALS

It helps to be familiar with Arrested Development, specifically a gag from this episode; but I think it works either way.
