I tend to see life from a humorous point of view, and I am convinced that you don't need to make things up because life is just funny. There are so many comical things that happen throughout the week that I rarely need to go looking for something to chuckle about.
Today, a headline in the local paper read, "Alligator listing gets man arrested." Apparently, it is a crime to post and sell your used alligator on Craigslist. Where would you sell your used alligator? Yard sale?
Flee market? Reptiles-R-Us? The alleged alligator perpetrator sold the aforementioned reptile to an undercover agent for the whopping sum of $200. Who would you have to tick off to become an undercover agent buying used alligators from Craigslist?
The seller should have been suspicious of the buyer right up front because the buyer didn't try to haggle. Of course, the ad did offer the alleged alligator for $200. If the ad had said, "$200 or Best Offer" the seller would have expected the buyer to offer $150-$160. But, the potential new briefcase owner offered full price. That was a red flag!
What's a used alligator worth now-a-days. The crime would have been a misdemeaner if the buyer only paid $199.99. So, if you're ever tempted to sell your used alligator, ostrerich, zebra, llama, shark, lion, koala bear, or any other such creature on Craigslist, start at $199.99. And, beware of buyers who don't haggle.
