You can find almost anything on Craigslist, from the functional, like second-hand furniture, to the offbeat, like a date for a wedding. And then there's the downright crazy: one Detroiter posted an ad in the "gigs" section Tuesday for someone to aid in a plan to "make a dragon."
That's right, a dragon, because if they can do it on "Game of Thrones," why not in the Midwest? We hope this Craigslister is joking, but if not, you have to at least admire the unwavering belief in magical beings.
He or she might not be watching the HBO show too closely though, as the ad cites how "Kaleasy" made the dragons come -- any true "Game of Thrones" fan would cringe at the mispelling of Khaleesi, the Dothraki title for queen on the show. Daenerys Targaryen does manage to hatch three dragons, but not before putting them in her husband's funeral pyre. Sounds a little unsafe for an apartment, don't you think?
Either way, the poster drives a hard bargain. If you somehow possess the power to bring a dragon to life, you only receive $500. And if you ever want to see the fire-breathing creature again, you don't get paid at all.
