Basket Bonanza Seller Responds

We received this response fromt the Basket Bonanza Seller:

Clearly I am not trying to say anything about locusts, plants or Egypt! (Gave me a good chuckle, though.) I am using the modern meaning of “a rich mine or pocket of ore” or, to those reading, ‘a wealth of baskets’.

Of course, the word bonanza is the English interpretation/translation from the original biblical language (Hebrew, Aramaic or Greek – depending on the expert and version consulted) which, in all likelihood, was not exactly the word ‘bonanza’. It was a play on words and not meant to be taken so seriously or literally. Hope that clarifies…

Blinds - Blue - $5

Blinds - Blue


I saw your ad on craigslist for the Blinds - Blue . I am particularly happy to see that the photograph demonstrates that there is no probability of the mounting mechanism being anything less than fully operational.

Basket bonanza - $15

Basket bonanza


I saw your ad on craig's list for the "Basket Bonanza" . I noticed that you are selling SIX baskets! I don't think that you understand the meaning of the word "bonanza". Let me show you its first use which was in the bible, Exodus:10
"Then The Lord said to Moses, 'Stretch out your hand over the land of Egypt for the locust bonanza, that they may come upon the land of Egypt, and eat every plant in the land, all that the hail has left.'"

Are you somehow trying to say that SIX locusts could eat every plant in Egypt??? That is ridiculous.
