Reading through the Trading Post over the weekend, a few of the ads struck me as a trifle suspect. See what you think:
Infrared & low light hand held night scope, Israeli made, suit surveillance or hobbyist $750
Hobbyist?! Just what kind of hobby requires a hand held night scope?! Only one really comes to mind, and that involves scrambling around in bushes at night infringing people’s privacy.
But if you think that’s weird, try this:
THE GOAT BLOKE
Goats for sale or hire
Hire?! Why on earth would I want to hire a goat? I wonder if he checks them for damage when they’re returned? I can see the statement made to police now…
"Yeah well, we got a bit drunk, you know.. running around the paddock in the nude and hitting each other with sticks. And then we thought hell, why not hire a goat?"
Have you spotted some weird ads somewhere? Well just keep ’em to yourself – you don’t want everybody thinking you’re a weirdo.
