Weirdo Wednesday – Nov 23, 2011

Weirdo WednesdayCraigslist is a pretty neat place. The online bulletin board where you can sell that stuff that is cluttering up your house; that old ugly lamp, a hand me down microwave when you get a new one, the stair-master you never use, and the husband that plays video games around the clock.

Holy matrimonial mayhem. Selling her husband on Craigslist?

Had I not seen it with my own eyes I probably wouldn’t have believed it.

“Easy to maintain, just feed and water every 3-5 hours,” reads the ad on Craiglist’s “Free Stuff” section. Alyse Bradley, of Logan, Utah, is offering up her video-game-playing husband. “He enjoys eating and playing video games all day,” she writes.

The wife posted the ad as a joke, offering her 22-year-old husband, Kyle Bradley, to the highest bidder, The Salt Lake Tribune reported. After the video game Modern Warfare 3 was released on November 8th, Kyle had a hard time tearing himself away. He recently returned home to Utah from Aghanistan after sustaining a back injury. The husband claims that gaming is one way that he stays connected to his military friends.

Apparently, no adequate offers have been made for the game-playing veteran.

This becomes just another item in the long list of weird Craigslist postings.

On a side note I have decided to shut down “Weirdo Wednesday” at the end of the year which means there are five more I will do.

Perhaps you have a suggestion on what I can now do with my free and available Wednesdays in 2012.

    You could stop blogging and pay attention to your adoring ol’ lady and pups, but that would be like asking Kyle Bradley to stop gaming and pay attention to his wife.

    Hmmmmmm…I can see the ad now: Free to good home. Writer/biker/geek. Addicted to blogging, but otherwise easy to maintain. Call today and receive a free insane spotted dog and a bag of kibbles at no additional charge.
