The Internet has opened a wide door to a new age in the old flea market and yard sale concept of selling, buying and bartering. While eBay paved the way for the online auction world to unload all of its surplus items to the highest bidder, Craigslist offers a great way to tap into local offerings and simply contact the person with an offer. Of course, web browsing can be as entertaining as in-store shopping, particularly when you come across items like these.
Hmmm, how so? At first, I thought he meant maybe they printed counterfeit money inside of it. Or perhaps they sold their cats, neatly stacked in little boxes, from the protected shade of the cabin? Or maybe they just sold honest jams, jellies and homemade remedies?
Oh wait, that’s right, I remembered. Cathouse! As in, hmm…working ladies. Ladies of the night. Shady ladies. OK, I’m with you now.
The seller’s description goes on to say this “great conversation piece” also would “be perfect for a hunting cabin or a place by a lake for you and the special lady in your life.” Does he mean Destiny over at the Cheetah Lounge? Hmm, not a bad idea, but I’m sure he meant real ladies of our lives, whether that takes the form of wife, girlfriend or both. Either way, I look at this cabin and can’t help but imagine what Bacchanalian scenes of backwoods bootlegging romance must have played out in its musty interior -- sort of like the scene in Cold Mountain where the dirty country wife implores Jude Law to “hug her til she grunts.” And to think, you can live out such scenes yourself whether you set this thing by a lake or in your own backyard for an easy $2,500. Destiny not included.
