Weirdo Wednesday – Nov 23, 2011
Craigslist is a pretty neat place. The online bulletin board where you can sell that stuff that is cluttering up your house; that old ugly lamp, a hand me down microwave when you get a new one, the stair-master you never use, and the husband that plays video games around the clock.
Holy matrimonial mayhem. Selling her husband on Craigslist?
Had I not seen it with my own eyes I probably wouldn’t have believed it.
“Easy to maintain, just feed and water every 3-5 hours,” reads the ad on Craiglist’s “Free Stuff” section. Alyse Bradley, of Logan, Utah, is offering up her video-game-playing husband. “He enjoys eating and playing video games all day,” she writes.
The wife posted the ad as a joke, offering her 22-year-old husband, Kyle Bradley, to the highest bidder, The Salt Lake Tribune reported. After the video game Modern Warfare 3 was released on November 8th, Kyle had a hard time tearing himself away. He recently returned home to Utah from Aghanistan after sustaining a back injury. The husband claims that gaming is one way that he stays connected to his military friends.
Apparently, no adequate offers have been made for the game-playing veteran.
This becomes just another item in the long list of weird Craigslist postings.
On a side note I have decided to shut down “Weirdo Wednesday” at the end of the year which means there are five more I will do.
Perhaps you have a suggestion on what I can now do with my free and available Wednesdays in 2012.
