Isn't the real thing funnier? Or am I missing something?

Yes. No. This is like a parody of a Corey Feldman biography. Why bother? (That's not to say I didn't giggle.)

Slow, bad dogs � losers.
They knew what they had to do, and they didn�t do it. They didn�t get it done.

I guess the orthodontist kidnapped the pellet gun toting horse, thinking it had firecrackers, or perhaps confused it with one of the lost fellating goat people.

That's some right honorable stuff right there. The "20s Cuban Male" one was my fave.

I laughed (pretty hard at a few). Funny in the old National Lampoon style.

Thanks.

I don't get it.

I mean, I "get it" as in understanding the parodic nature, but I don't get how this is funny. *shrug* But of course, I'm not a dedicated reader of craigslist, so maybe it just doesn't "speak" to me.

I'm with uncleozzy above; to a non-diehard, craigslist is already self-parodying, so this seems redundant.

Beerfilter, that dachshund page made my day. Actually, I think it made my entire LIFE.

National Lampoon is right. I remember reading that as a kid when I was probably eight, esp. the Sunday paper parody and the Yearbook, and never laughed so hard. The absurdist, visual quality is a rare thing when done well. This came close.

These are great. Keep in mind that not all parody is ridicule.
posted by dhartung at 10:29 AM on February 7, 2007


I'm still not sure why, but these made me laugh even more than Nick Lachey riding that Sybian yesterday. There's too many to choose.

to the deaf guy who picked my pocket and then farted

What gives, guy? How come I had to eat the blame for that fart? You dealt it, I smelt it. Plus I want my keys, badge and wallet back.


Come on, tell me this isn't funny!
