funny craigslist finds

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

The description says in "fairly good shape". About 40% of one blade is gone and about 15% of the other two. Then there's the spelling - always good reading on Craig's List.

The ones I like the most are:

Small knock in the engine (or whatever), easy fix, my loss, your gain, blah-blah-blah

I love the "just needs carb cleaned". They probably heard that once when they were 11 and it has stuck with them their whole life. Clean it and call me when it is running.
