One time I was doing a search for crepe paper on eBay and found one listing where the dealer spelled it as "crap paper." Ha ha ha.

Hooo. Boy. My jaw hurts from laughing so hard. Clearly, your sense of humor is genetic.


Fantastic! Does Mantel Man have a blog? Because he should. I bet your family get-togethers are a stitch!

Mantel Man

Well! Glad everyone enjoyed reading the story. I laughed my hiney off while writing it. Thanks to Foolery for dressing it up so cleverly with the photos.

By the way, for those of you who are morning people, I just saw an ad for a "breakfast knock table."

It looked sturdy.

Da Goddess

Good thing I triple checked my ad before posting.

Now, if anyone's interested in a "missionary style dinning table with tresses in okay finnish, sex chairs, extra leafes, and table clothes..."

I really love Craigslist sometimes. But Mantel Man, he sounds fantastic always.


OMG I soooo needed this laugh. Seriously, it couldn't have come at a better time. Big thanks to MM from the inmates up here at the asylum!


OH, these were good. Just this week my ex wife was sharing a blog called "You Suck at Craigslist," and it made me feel like our education system is failing us.

Chesapeake Bay Woman

I love Mantel Man.

What's the 800 number for that bonk bed? I assume they deliver.


Marlene -- he had that same effect on me! My brother usually makes me laugh. We got to see for a surprise visit last weekend -- YAY! -- but Arizona is TOO far away. Thanks for coming by!

MT, you could almost have planned that typo, couldn't you? Perfect. I hope someone saved a copy for Leno?

Hey Kyddryn! He's rather lovable, in a he's-my-brother sorta way. He's a talented writer, that's for sure. Glad you had a chuckle (I'll tell him).

Yeah, Kit, no nookie for me, either. I've read it MANY, MANY times as I prepped this post, so I may be outta luck for several years. Bummer. Good thing I'm a mother -- I'm used to it! : )

Hey Elaina! Mantel Man is WAY wittier than I am; I just try to keep up. And I'm so glad you didn't answer Creepy Guy's reply, shudder.

We all need a bonk bed, Kate. Mine just needs to be bigger than standard. : )

Halloween is BIG out here, Daryl -- and almost anything goes. Maybe not ANYTHING . . . but I've seen some pretty wild adult costumes around here.

Marcy, if you and Mantel Man married you'd kill each other laughing in a week, maybe less. Too much comedy! Not safe. ; )

BHE, you kill me. That was beautiful.

Me, too, Noe Noe -- thanks for coming around!

Big fat sloppy loves to you all, and thanks for reading. I'll send Mantel Man by to read his fan mail.

noe noe girl

LMAO- thanks I needed that!

Do those Bonk Beds come with a money back guarantee if you are not completely...satisfied??

The Glamorous Life Association

That's it.
I am leaving The Husband.
I shall marry Mantle Man and I will live the rest of my days laughing my a** off...in my flowered drawers.



I laughed hard .. but I am fixated on HalloweenAdventure.com as listed on the frilly pantalette shot ... now THAT truly made me snort


I need a bonk bed. And a pair of flowered drawers, too. They're not just for Halloween, you know.


Bonk bed! Designer bowels! Your brother is funny which is not surprising since you are too.

I advertised on Craigslist in NC to see if I could get some help with getting heavy furniture to my storage facility. I had a really nice Marine reply for he & his teenage son and we arranged for them to come help me out.

I forgot about the ad and got a reply from a very creepy person who wanted to know if payment would come in other forms besides cash. Apparently he must have confused me the person who had the bonk bed.

No...I did not reply. The Marine & his son were super nice by the way and hard workers. But hmm...sometimes I wonder about that Craigslist...


Shoot, I read it, I guess no nookie for me. . . but it was damn entertaining!!

When I had kids, my mild-mannered dining table morphed into a dinning table.


Mizz Foolery, I...I...I think I may love your brother. I haven't laughed so hard in a very long time. Thanks...

Shade and Sweetwater,


My mother once put in an add to sell our small sailboat. When we got a copy of the paper, they had correctly inserted the part about the trailer that the boat rested upon, but added that the ensemble came "with wench included." I'm not sure which of us (me or my two sisters) the editor was trying to get out of the deal, but my mother was mortified at the typo over "winch."


I have to compose my self for a second so I can comment....okay, there...that's better.

I just laughed my ass of for at least 10 minutes.

Dude...funniest stuff I have read in a LONG time.
