Odd Craigslist listing...I really don't know what to say

Every evening I look through 2 categories on Craigslist, 'Tools' & 'Materials'. I gotta say this listing took me back...

http://columbus.craigslist.org/tls/4215768544.html

Anyone else find any mis-categorized items?

I guess you could use it as a lumber rack or tool support

I like how they say it is in "like new condition". So, it's been used.

Usually the lady . . . .

Well let's not go there.

Use the right tool for the job.

Strange? Not really... think about it! You're a woodworker (no offense to our lady woodworkers who have every right to be here [wish you could convince my wife to join me in the shop]) which means you're more then likely to be a guy. I get lots of "dating services" links to my Facebook page and I believe it's because I spend lots of time on woodworking sites - tool - and stores. Because I also involved with the BSA (Boy Scouts of America), I get camping equipment sites.

Welcome to modern day living. Big brother isn't watching to spy - he wants to sell you something you might be interested in. If they sell 100 of those belts - they're very happy...

Its' never hot or cold in New Hampshire... its' always seasonal.

Was it posted under tools or materials? I guess it could be under both.

I was about to click on the link when it became a giant Timberlane boot ad. So yes, I guess it is miscategorized.

I was looking through the tools listings, not really looking for any one thing. Certainly was not expecting that! We've all seen items that were listed wrong. 'Ticket' in the 'Tools' section, but this takes the cake. Is it weird that when I saw the ad, the first thing I thought of was 'I gotta post this on WWT!'

They just don't know what they have. You use the mounting hook directly over the table saw, strap your board into the swing, and then you make a perfectly ripped pair once it comes out....

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos
