    Best Craigslist Ad Ever

    Apologies if this has been posted before, but someone just sent it to me. I literally lol'd, and thought I'd share.

    I suspect that NOTHING "literally" happened as described...although I'd be interested in the bike if it were closer...I DO have a camera collection....and a Masters Degree

    I lived off of Fifth Ave. in Brooklyn for some years, never saw anything like that. Much more likely to see old ladies pushing carts.

    Hmm. I had a girlfriend who went to Vassar. Curvy redheaded Greek girl.

    What I get from the ad is an announcement that amounts to this: "I'm going to stop trying to be a trendy hipster and start trying to be a trendy hip hop kid. Switching out some of my material possessions will hopefully accomplish this."
