It's Cyber Monday and while we're all hunting for deals online, remember that if something looks too good to be true, it is. Take, for instance, the nefarious "free" section of Craigslist. Within it hides a multitude of sins, mistakes and tragedies. That free trampoline, free canoe, free dog house... there's a reason they're free.
Take a look at some of the worst/funniest items available for free on Craigslist below, and shop safe today, friends.
Photo ID Required
No Fred impersonators please.
Free Industrial Sized Wooden Spool
What would be the logistics of having sex on a spool? Wouldn't it roll?
This Urn must be pretty durable if the only thing destroyed in the fall was poor Dino (R.I.P.).
Doesn't it technically belong to this posters' neighbors at this point?
Free Kool Aid Costume
We're so bummed that this prank didn't work. It involved so much planning and so little measuring.
Maybe it could be used as a keyboard prop for a student film set in 1999.
We never thought about all the amazing ways you could use a canoe.
Free Chronicles Of Riddick DVD
We wonder if seven years later this is still by this guys' tree.
Free VCR With Porno Video Stuck In It
"Awesome" is a good adjective for any porn really.
Free Dog House
So, if we got this the first thing we would do is wash it, right?
This should really say "two free half cellos."
Free Bar Of Yugoslavian Soap
Sharing soap sounds like the beginning of a "Contagion"-like movie.
Free Hot Tub
This seems like a problem for duct tape.
Free Magnum Condoms
A super chic person deserves these condoms.
Free Stuffed Walrus Head
It's nice to be able to stop by whenever.
Free Downed Weather Balloon
What are the bones? No!!!
Ugly Mean Cat
Lou just needs a good home.
Free Playschool Talking Barbeque
Why it's never a good idea to buy toys with sound effects.
Free Mini Donkey
We really hope these two kids worked it out.
It's sort of annoying that this person wants the action figure back.
This would go for like $500 at Anthropologie.
The last little tip really feels warranted.
Free Piano For Catapult Artisan
If you were catapulting it out, why would it be aimed at all near the apartment?
Free 9 Packets Of Regular Flavor Quaker Instant Oatmeal
This isn't that funny, but we just want to advertise how terrible regular flavored oatmeal is.
We kind of want to save this couch.
Free Kung-Fu Gerbil
We really appreciate that this poster didn't feel the need to go back and change the original post once he realized his error.
