Post 398: Truth in Advertising

Sparky doesn’t mean to mislead people who are shopping on Craigslist. He simply forgets to look closely at the item for which he is posting the ad. Lucky for us, he has it listed as free.

Because it certainly sounds like an X-rated item.

Free Queen Sealy Golden Rod Firm Mattress

Just bought a larger mattress, this Sealy set is only 1 1/2 years old! Mattress and box spring FREE- first come, first serve.

I will remove ad once Mattress and Box Spring are unavailable.


Bad enough a Golden Rod and goldenrod are two very different things. Add the words, Queen, Firm, and Mattress, and you never know who might be showing up to drag it away. Best of luck, Local Sparky!
