Best of Craigslist: Don’t Cry Edition

Best of Craigslist is back with another tear-inducing roundup of terrible ads.

Ah, Craigslist — you evoke all sorts of emotions in us. These ads remind you that when you can’t decide whether to laugh or cry, just laugh. It’s easier.

We’ll kick things off with this “calm cool a collective” horse from Kristy:

I have a Percheron horse which will be 2 March 5 2016. He is a sound horse with good training and is very smart. Temperament wise he is a very cool calm a collective kind he is a pocket horse. Easy to catch. I have broke him without a bit so to each his own. I assume with as big as they get you might have to.


 

Overall, this ad isn’t bad, and credit to the sellers who are raising money to geld the sire. But there’s a certain misspelling that raises an eyebrow and a good chuckle. From Lisa:

Rounding out the collection today, we had to do some serious sleuthing to discover that this is not, in fact, a scam. Aren’t you pleased to know that this is actually a real horse and he really is standing at stud? From Lori:

Can you say Tipple Crown? This is Empire of d’Nile , He is the “PATERNAL” { same Dad} 1/2 brother to the Grand Slam Winner &, Haskell Winner, American Pharaoh.
Both sired by the amazing “Pioneer of the Nile’ who won 4 Graded stakes races in a row, Including the Santa Anita Derby.

WE all know he would have won the KY Derby but I guess they forgot that day to Mine that bird that day. Pioneer of the Nile Blood line continues to make winner after winner.
