Booking Through Thursday: Cereal (and other Odd Reads)

This week's question from Booking Through Thursday is: What’s the oddest thing you’ve ever read? (You know, something NOT a book, magazine, short story, poem or article.)

I had to think about this one because I don't consider anything "odd" reading.  I've read everything from road signs to soup cans.  It's just a matter of how bored I am.  I'll even read the dumb little politcal and religious tracts that come attached to/written on the rebates and other marketing mail I process at work if I'm bored enough.  Occasionally, they're good for a laugh. 

I think the strangest thing I've read - meaning it was a weird thing to post or publish - was a Craigslist ad from a guy who was looking for a Rabbi versed in "dark Kabbalistic rites" to help him create some type of magical creature.  I don't remember the details, just that the ad was good for one of those head-scratching "WTF?!?" chuckles.  I'm still not sure if the guy was serious or if it was meant as a joke.  I hope he was joking, but considering some of the odd things I've seen people send through the mail, I'm afraid he wasn't.  Eek!

  1. OK that's just hilarious. I wonder what he wanted with this magical creature.

  2. Your guess is as good as mine. Whatever it was, it made an impression.

  3. Great ... thanks for sharing..
