Well readers, as hard as it is to believe, this marks the 1500th unique post on You Suck At Craigslist. It’s been almost five years since we started this silly little blog, and we’ve had some amazing milestones, including the front page of Reddit, celebrity endorsements, being declared a porn site by Google, being the only remaining snark blog without a book deal, and every possible spelling of the word “ottoman.”

And through it all, the most amazing part has been our regular readers. We’ve been tempted many times (particularly when it’s midnight and we don’t have a post written) to pack it in, but being able to read the next day’s comments is what always keeps us going. We can’t swear that there will always be a new post every weekday – sooner or later, we will inevitably exhaust what can be done in the medium of Sucking at Craigslist.

But in the meantime, we really consider you folks some of our best friends, and the smartest and funniest people we know. Thanks for making this bizarre hobby of ours meaningful!

So, since we’re reminiscing about the past, here’s the oldest post in our “yes” pile that we haven’t gotten around to using yet. It’s only four years old – we’ll be caught up in no time!

I am looking to barter my skills for a late model car


I am good at a lot of things and I would be willing to trade my skills for a late model car.
I need something that will fit, 3 dogs and at least 3 people, and can get a 4 x 8 piece of plywood in it or on top of it.
I would rather have red coloring, and it needs to be below 85,000 miles, with no rust or major repair needed.
Thanks.

Ah, four years ago. Remember when people really sucked at Craigslist? It’s great to know that our site has really made a difference. Looking at Craigslist today, you’d never see someone just trying to get someone to give them a …

habitat/goodwill

This is from last month. Dammit – we’ve accomplished NOTHING!

Thanks, Ghostie and DWM!

    Skills include poor spelling & grammar, sucking at craigslist, hoarding dogs, building things from plywood, standing on my head while whistling Dixie, having children, sweating, and identifying colors .

      Don’t whistle at my dog while standing on your head, you’ll confuse her

      (My dog’s name is Dixie)

      (I didn’t name her, wouldn’t be my choice, the animal shelter did, she responds to that name, so I kept it)

          At home I call her Dipsy or Dippy, she responds to that too ??

          Pixie would have been a good name for her though as she is a skinny little thing mostly made of fluff

    Is this the little blog I cherished?
    Are you the readers who love snark?
    I don’t think Sparky’s getting smarter,
    Don’t go dark!

      What CJ said (she’s smart).

      Along with Ottoman, there’s also Armoire, and Provencal (or Proven?al), and heaven only knows what speeling emangulations will wind up celebrated on these August Pages. Where else would we share in the revelations of needing a Winter Bagel to tow our Diplomate so it can be a sand box?

      Or that Ice Green is the correct color of a Minty Shell (and that Matt wil lbe over-wrought about how we immortalize Corey after that).

      And Band Names nearly beyond counting.

        “What’s a ‘lawsue’?”

        “It’s a regulation created by a legislative body and endorsed by the executive who will enforce that act.
        And don’t call me ‘Sue’.”

        The phd in question probably knows all that will ever be known about the microcrystaline structure of alloyed metals, but has no clue what humor is. Said worthy probably thinks barristers are the vertical elements in stair railings (or, possibly, coffeemakers).

          Well my car fell apart in 2003
          And that didn’t leave much for Hubby Monkey and me
          And he and I just didn’t know what to do.

          So we lawyered up and filed a claim
          Against that ol’ Chevy that up and went lame
          And we told GM “Yeah! We gonna SUE!”

    So what kind of “skills” is Sparky Uno offering? Nunchaku skills, bowhunting skills, computer hacking skills? I only want to trade my car (which I will color red with this Magic Marker) to someone who has great skills!

      They’re just skills! Just skills, okay?! Just…look, they’re skills, and he’s very skillful at them. Okay?

      P.S. Congratulations on 1500 posts! I’ve been reading for all four years, commented maybe eight times total, but don’t take our silence/laziness to mean that there isn’t also an army of us lurkers and mostly-lurkers out here loving the blog from afar!

    To the illustrious duo:

    I’ve offered before in the past, but figured I’d toss it out there again. If you’re ever in need of a vacation/break/monkey love week I know at least a few of all of the regulars would be willing to chip in a post or five to help out.

    Granted this comes with its own issues, but I’m totally sure we could be trusted to not screw up the site*.

        I was cautioned, by PM from another venue, that I ought amend my posting ways in that venue, lest a “lawer” engage me in a “lawsue”–it was beyond sore tempting to ask the PhD in question how long they had answered to “Sue” (O, for the days when award of a doctorate conveyed predictable levels of common literacy).

    My dad has a truck he could part with. It could fit several dogs and pieces of wood as long as you are willing to get the junk out of it and are willing to let a few mice tag along. It has no engine but could “run” (roll) great if you pushed it down a hill. It’s blue but the paint it peeling off so you can add your own (I’ll chip in some red food coloring). It’s below 85,000 miles -it’s parked on his lawn and not orbiting in space. No rust needed- it comes with plenty of its own.

    I need something that will fit,

    How about Uncle Al’s old plaid sports coat?

    3 dogs and at least 3 people,

    I can get you 2 dogs, a three toed sloth, a flock of seagulls and a family of five. Will that do?

    and can get a 4 x 8 piece of plywood in it or on top of it.

    That is a good skill, but not quite what I was looking for. If you can juggle 3 lawnmowers while making Beef Wellington and playing Guantanamera on the tuba, let’s talk.

    [matt] No snark for Spark #2. He’s willing to pay what he can, and is not picky about what he gets. Times are tough. [/matt]

      I have a car I’d sell to Sparky 2 for 500.00. It’s got Emanuel Transmission so as long as he continues to thankyou lord, I think it could get him Dr. Ineedit.

      (Would Dr. I/Need/It – be a nefarious sort who writes out scripts he’s not supposed to, or is he/she a sex counselor?)

    if you got an old beat up car runing with lot of miles
