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.

Reverse Random Friday

Random Response: I post an irregular response I receive from someone.

Reverse Random Response: I post a CL ad (from the more illegitimate side of town, so as not to bother reputable employers) I have responded to in an attempt to obtain gainful employment.

Free: World Domination Plans (Slightly Used)

Bonus Post: I usually only post on Monday, Wednesday & Friday; but since so many of you are checking out the blog I wanted to give you a teaser. This ad was immediately flagged the few times I posted it; but it has evolved into an ad I believe is going to be much better. Stay tuned for that; in the meantime check out the original draft of this ad below.
