I kind of want to make a Morrissey shrine now.

I have only done this once before?
 
2012-12-30 08:29:43 PM
Meh.

What I'm taking away form this is: someone paid more than $20,000 for a small BMW SUV with more than 100k on the clock? No wonder your daughter's dumb.

Dragon's over Michigan. That is totally cool.

Remember not to harm the Red Dragon.

He's cool.

Yeah, I understand.  I really hate having to shoot arrows or use my pitiful little sparks spell on a dragon that's hovering over me blasting me with its breath.  If I couldn't learn a shout to make him land, I'd take out an ad in craigslist, too.

Nice try but current book value is $18,000, and that's with additional miles and another year on the clock.

Best part for me was that she "might be sobbing" when you drop buy to pick it up. Totally out of character for a Morrissey fan.

When I was but a child, a red dragon mercilessly slayed my mother. Ever since that traumatic day, I have made it my life's quest to slay ANY AND ALL dragons that cross my path. Yay, I will slay your green dragon, however  should the red dragon appear, I CANNOT promise that I will keep my sword sheathed. You have been warned, and I urge you to please weigh this decision carefully before enlisting my services.

We need an artist to depict the following: an owl skeleton with a parrot on its shoulder. The parrot is not a skeleton and is very colorful. The parrot has a peg leg, with a pirate hat on. The owl has an eye patch and a gold chain necklace with a skull on the pendant of said necklace. The skull in the pendant has an eye patch on the opposite eye of the owl (long story there don't ask). The owl skeleton also has on a wizard's hat with that typical wizard hat wrinkle. The owl is standing on a cowboy hat from a whale's spout. This all is within a snow globe. That santa is holding with his only good hand because his other hand is a hook. Mrs. Clause is pulling on Mr. Clause's coat with one of those dinosaur mouth grabbers that all 80's children know.

This one just angers me.

Craig's is a good place for bargains if you are on top of it.

I grabbed a nice Yamaha 250, clean with 5000 miles for $1500 because I moved fast, lucky shot I did! It listed at 7 PM, I had it by 8 PM and three other people had already called.

Some time before I had a Baja 125 from Pep Boys which was totally work out; I was sick of messing with it so I put an ad in Craig's: "-----get this POS out of my yard, haul it and you can have it!---"

It was gone in 30 minutes, but the guy who dragged it off went nuts trying to fund parts and a mechanic.

I gave the bike away for free and still got the better of the deal.

I sold used toilet paper on craigslist once. Amazing what people will pay for.

I'll do it. Green dragons are pussies.

That one reads like a guy wrote it. Or, at least, I heard it in a guy's voice. And it makes for a better image, so I'll continue to believe...

I gotta ask, did anyone read this Wall of Text? WTF is that all about?

This would be an awesome side quest in borderlands. Hell it almost sounds like one.


I need help catching the gatorskagg that ate my prized pig. My pig (Rudy Belle) was wearing a very expensive necklace, a generational necklace, which was in my wife's family for years. The emotional distress I have had from losing my pig is nothing like the stress I will receive from my wife if I don't get it back. It happened at the Blue Cypress Golf Club and it scared the bejesus out of me. I spoke to management and they said there was nothing they could do. If anyone has found the necklace or has seen this gatorskagg (has a weird blotchy snout) pleasssse contact me.

As a fan of The Moz since 1984-ish, I approve. :-)

I was amused by the inclusion of the double-decker bus from "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out".
