Are you still stumped about what to get your favorite loved ones for Christmas? This Craigslist ad—possibly one of the greatest ever—has the perfect solution for you.
Craigslist. It's your one-stop shop for creepy sex ads and stupid Christmas shit. It's hard to understand how Craigslist posters continually one-up themselves, but for some miraculous reason they always do. Case in point: This spectacularly bizarre ad from a semi-disgruntled taxidermy enthusiast in Nashville who got stuck with a slightly damaged dead stuffed bobcat. Fell the Chariots of Fire-esque glory in his words as he explains how he took life by the balls and fixed the taxidermy disaster.
Here is the ad, in all its CAPSLOCK glory:
I BOUGHT THIS VINTAGE BOB CAT AND IT WAS DAMAGED IN SHIPPING. IT'S BACK RIGHT LEG WAS BROKEN IN TWO PLACES
IT WAS MOUNTED ON SOLID FOAM AND HEAVY WIRE FORM SO IT WAS STABLE
I CLEANED AND REFURBISHED IT.
i REPAIRED THE LEG AND SECURED THE CAT TO A BEAUTIFUL LARGE PIECE OF DRIFT WOOD, I HID THE REPAIR WITH THE LARGE ANIMAL PRINT SILK FLOWER AND ADDED MOSSES, GRASSES ETC. 25 IN TALL 27 IN. LONG HAS ALL NAILS GREAT OPEN MOUTH POSE
