Le Creuset square cast iron skillet...brand new - $75

Le Creuset square cast iron skillet...brand new

Hi There,

I saw your ad on Craigslist for the Le Creuset square cast iron skillet You claim that it is "brand new and still in the box". BUSTED!! I analysed the photo you included and there is very strong evidence that the pan is not in fact "still in the box".

Explain yourself!

I saw your ad on Craigslist asking me if I am a cheese lover
Answer: Totally.
You say you are selling "four 6" plates with the names of all the cheeses on them". I am very interested but I was thinking that there is no way that they have the names of all the cheeses on them. But as you know (assuming you are a fellow cheese lover) some cheeses are more important than others. Do they have "cheddar" written on them?

Let me know.

Actually, it is at the rounded edge and says "eddar." Since there is no such cheese as edder, I would imagine that represents 5/7 of the word "cheddar." I also have the large serving plate on which to hold the cheeses and crackers. I don't think I listed it.

Every cheese I eat when I go to Europe tastes better than the ones I eat here. Maybe because low-fat doesn't exist there.

First of all, thank you for the unsolicited information regarding your level of cheese enjoyment as a function of your location. I find that type of thing extremely interesting. I really enjoy watching baseball in Japan.

Now let's get down to brass tacks about this cheese plate deal. If I understand correctly, approximately 5/7 of each name of all the cheeses is written on the rounded edge of the plates. For example, "mozzare", "gruye" or "nster"... and so on. I guess that makes a lot more sense.

Also, there is a new plate on the table now... "a large serving plate on which to hold cheeses and crackers" you say. So, are the original plates not suitable for holding cheeses and crackers, and if not, what IS their function? Also, what fraction of the cracker names are written on the outer edge of the large serving plates?

I am hoping we can clear up these issues soon.

The large plate is the serving platter. The smaller ones are for your guests.

You are very funny. Are you a stand-up comedian, a writer, or a NYC teacher? Or, if you are discussing "issues," maybe you are a therapist.

My boyfriend is a CPA. I can have him calculate the percentage of each cheese name down to decimal places......

I am funny aren't I? I should have a blog in which I harass, for no real reason, people selling things on Craigslist. I would call it . Good idea?

BTW, are you implying that there is a CPA that has talked to a girl?

Pig Face Candy Dish - $8

Pig Face Candy Dish

Hi there,

I saw your ad on Craigslist for the Pig Face Candy Dish It is a very special looking item. I think it would go great in my living room full of candies. My grandchildren could come over and take candies out of the bowl slowly uncovering the face below. I can just imagine their squeals of joy as they realize that the candy bowl looks like a mask that might be worn by someone fabricating an article of clothing out of human skin.

Is it still available?

Empty beer and pop cans - $5

Empty beer and pop cans

Hi there,

I noticed your ad on Craigslist saying that you are buying "empty beer and pop cans for five cents each" This is an amazing idea. I was wondering if you need a business partner. I have a pickup truck and I could really help you out. We would buy up all the cans we can find and then return them for the five cent deposit and make a killing. I would be willing to pay for all the gas and expenses for 50% of the profits. The other idea I have, is to start drinking a butt load of beer at home and then returning those empties to get a little bit of start up cash. What do you think?
