CONTEST: Cobra Pit Cleaner ad

Sometimes I watch a YouTube video or read a news story and I wonder…

What would the Craigslist Ad look like for this?

Contest: Write a fake Craigslist ad for the gig featured in the video above. Make me laugh. Make me cry. Make me wince in pain. Just make it good.

Rules: Keep it PG-13 or below. No more than 2 entries per person. I’ll narrow it down to 3 finalists on Monday and run a poll to pick the winner.

Prize: $25 USD Amazon gift card. (If I get a lot of entries, maybe I’ll find more prizes.)
