  • I’ve had no luck with the strictly platonic section and quite frankly don’t want to live in a world where a total stranger doesn’t want to hang out under the guise of being in a hip hop cover tribute band.

Free: Marge Simpson (An Exercise Of Frustrating Futility)

I like to make people happy. I like to give stuff away to make people happy. Here is an example of how some people don’t like other people to be happy.

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.

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,

Reverse Random Response Friday

Old timers, welcome back.  New arrivals, make yourselves at home.  Please “like me” and give the blog mascot some love.

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

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

*Editor’s note: This is NOT my ad.

My response, click on email to embiggen:

 

  • No response from the possible employer.
  • I just can’t seem to get a modeling gig in this town.

Beware! Leap Year Approaches

I thought it would be interesting to create something extremely far fetched and see if I could start a crazy train (re:re:re:re: crazy train) in the rants & raves section. Apparently almost anything goes in this section; except for my hard core science fiction hypothesis.  I have extrapolated countless sets of data to create the following infallible graph indicating the likelihood of a post’s flagging for removal in the rants & raves section.
