Three Stooges Bowling Ball, Little-Used
It might be that one Naperville 11-year-old never really took to the Three Stooges bowling ball his parents bought him in 2006, because according to this post offering the ball for $40, it was only used for 10-20 games. Perhaps they should have picked a TV show that aired during their son's lifetime?
Please Take My Poisonous Snake
A Naperville fellow named Danny is looking for a new home for his albino Heterodon nasicus, the western hognose snake, who appears to be known for "eating frozen thawed pinkies" (I hope those are mice of some sort?) Don't worry, he's "not mean but not handled much" (watch those pinkies), but he does have a "very mild venom" and oh, yeah, you do have your mandatory permit, right?
Get Naked, No Pay
It's the simplicity of this Naperville-based post that really gets to me. "Looking for female exhibitionist," it's titled, and consists entirely of one line: "Ladies, send me a hot pic." Sound like your type of gig? It gets better! Apparently, the "job" doesn't pay a cent.
For Your Grim Reaper Costume?
Just $85 will buy you this "vintage farm sickle" in Lisle, which is not a bad price for a prop for your next horror movie... because given that the blade is caked in rust and cracked (and it's 2013,) I wouldn't recommend it for reaping anything but souls. Plus, it's really, really scary-looking. Then again, details on the size of this terror-scythe are "coming soon," so maybe it's just a 1/20 model.
Fake Hand Grenade is Fake
A Woodridge user is offering a unique way to tell your business' patrons just what they can do with their complaints: for $30, you can buy this "Complaint Dept.: Take a Number" hand grenade. "Remember, it's fake!" the posting emphasizes. "Just a paperweight." We're very glad to hear.
But Are Those Table Legs?
Excuse me, Woodridge poster, but someone appears to have transformed the upper half of your deer into a table. Or the lower half of your table into a deer. I legitimately don't know if this bizarre table's legs are actual deer legs or not, and I'm scared to ask. But if it strikes your fancy, you can pick it up for $50.
