Who needs Craig's List?

Who needs Craig's List when you have Uncle Henry's weekly swap it or sell it guide? You can buy a car, a gun, livestock, puppies (that's how we found Baxter), computers, old exercise equipment and on and on.



One of my favorite categories is "Free for the taking":
Take out the bit about the stray beagle, and it's like he could be selling me.

"Good for pets or soup." Heh.


I also like the "Wanted" category:
Yeah, that's not creepy at all. "Excuse me, m'am, but I'm going to need to do a strip search. I'm an officer of the law."


Family jewels and old jugs. That just appeals to the 12-year-old in me.
