Some Things Should Not Be Bought Second Hand

January 27th, 2008
I love Craigslist. It's so simple and meets so many basic needs. At its heart, it's about putting buyers and sellers together, but it has grown to something beyond that. Whether it's goods or services or just people wanting to meet each other, Craigslist specializes in finding the people who are the best fit for the situation in as low an overhead way as possible.

And yet, there are limits, or there should be.

Take this case, a person who is selling, and I am not making this up, a "beautiful pink "vagina couch" that I made in art school and no longer have space for".

Hey, it looks like a well-made couch, and it's certainly a conversation piece, but for some reason although I am moderately icked out at the thought of sitting on a "vagina couch", I am TOTALLY icked out at the thought of sitting on a second-hand "vagina couch".

I'm not sure … does that make me a furniture snob or a prude? Hmm.

    I want that for my birthday.

    The fact that it’s “dirty” and has “scuff marks” kind of squicks me out a bit. Oh, and also, it looks like the vagina couch is swallowing that person in the picture.

    I yoinked the link and posted in my journal… my readers are funnier than your readers.

    I’m just wondering how big of a house I’d have to have before I would ‘have room’ for that.
