So I’m lucky enough to have two of the worst possible tickets to the inauguration swearing in ceremony. Naturally, I’m trying to sell them (thankfully it’s still legal, damn unamerican congress is tried a few times to change that though.) Craigslist is the only real place to do it. So far I’ve been offered $400, $600, and $1000 for the two. Of course, most these people don’t actually come through — it is Craigslist after all. We’ll see if i actually sell them, but frankly I think i would have had a more successful run with craigslist if i was a lolcat looking for an anonymous gay hookup.

one of the best things about trying to sell these tickets is the crazy craigslist trolls who keep harassing me — it’s pretty much what you’d expect — except it has stuff like this in it:

“oh I’m SURE this is what Obama would like to see… neighbor ripping off his neighbor…”

Obeejus

That’s a quote.  Seems pretty clear that this guy is confusing Obama with someone else. Jesus, perhaps.
What’s particularly great about these wacko Obamaphiles is that they totally ignore that Obama was actually selling tickets for $50,000 through his inaugural committee.

Well, it’s the Audacity of Hype, I suppose. I’m plenty sick of it though.  Especially all this ridiculousness about how 1) he’s going to fix everything, 2) he’s like Lincoln and Reagan, 3) the US overcame racism, and proved it by electing him (since the only reason people voted for McCain was racism, of course).

The whole idea of “America’s not racist!  We have a black president, really! And we love Oprah and Kanye and Wayne Brady!”  Worse is the idea that Obama’s election really fulfills the American promise that anyone can become President.  Ugh.

So, I’m not going to go force my way through the Obamoron Hordes to stand in the cold for hours so I can kind of maybe see the next President.  Especially since Rick Warren‘s going to be there, using magic.  (Click Warren’s name for a fun article about how his pals are distributing nazi type comics to children – he’s a great pick.)

Cregslist iz so durdy

Over the weekend i got bored and posted a fake craigslist ad in M4m in lolcat speak.

stuff like “lukkin 4 sum1 to come ovah fer cuddelz timez maybee more. iz best if u haz a flavah, a reel gud won. kthxbai!”

the weird thing was i got 7 responses in 20 minutes — only one of them noted it was a lolcat and thought it was funny. the rest sent pics of their bodies and things like “your butt is ground-zero of your pleasure,” which is probably the best use of the phrase “ground-zero” ever. Typically when i think about that term i think 9/11, but it’s nice that it can be reclaimed for referencing dirty anal sex with strangers– possibly cats.
i posted it with a picture of a cat on a bed.

i guess i didn’t notice that the cat had such seductive come-hither eyes.
