Picture this: Author and troublemaker Gary Fingercastle posts hundreds of mock advertisements on the popular website www.craiglist.com and receive real life responses in return. And because truth is stranger than fiction, this is what he learned:
•You can purchase anything on the Internet (like bear cubs and tattoos for children)
•You can give anything away on the Internet (like haunted armoires, torture racks, and mummies)
•People will do anything for money (like driving into walls at high speeds and starving themselves for five weeks straight)
•Men will do anything for sex (like, but not limited to, jumping into a lion pen, dressing up like a Christmas tree, and posing as John Goodman form Roseanne)
Wanted: Bear Cubs for My Children is the hilarious and oftentimes horrifying collection that really makes you wonder – what were those people thinking?
