Enough is enough

You know just when you think you have heard and seen it all, someone or something comes along and makes you say NO WAY.

I love reading Craigslist. In fact I think they should call it Gregslist. I might use that name when I decide to make my own trader page so don't get any ideas. And there are some pretty crazy things on Craigslist but this one the other day really took the cake. It went something like this:

Wanted....ramp for our pig

Well I am sorry but I just had to read that post. In my head I imagined an sweet elderly couple that needed a ramp so that their pig could get on the porch or into the barn or something like that. But I was wrong. What they needed was a ramp so that their pot bellied pig could get into bed with them. That's right, this couple sleeps with their potbellied pig and because it is "so large that they can't lift it" they need a ramp.

Is anyone grossed out here like I am. My mother used to say; if you lay down with dogs, you get up with fleas but what do you get when you lay down with pigs? Bacon? I just don't know. Now I tried to imagine a little pink pig like Arnold Ziffel



but I think we are talking more like this:




And that is just wrong.

Sorry I had to speak out on this one.

Have a great day,
Greg

Lol Their next post is going to be for a new bed. Little Arnie is going to break it.
By the way, when I was a little girl I had a small pig named Frenchie. I dressed her in doll clothes. She was cute:)
Happy New Year! B

Pampered Porker, indeed. They say pigs are very intelligent, I suspect this one has an IQ way over his (or her) keeper(s). ;)
ATB!
