Husband for Sale

I came across the following entirely by accident while Googling some photography-related material. The following appeared today, June 25, 2009, in the Toronto Craigslist. I'm not sure how long it will remain online, so I've copied & pasted the ad in its entirity here. I thought it was hilarious (here's the direct link).


WTT: Ken Rockwell-Obsessed Husband (North York)

One gently-used caucasian male. 36 years-old. Slightly defective. Remembers the names of Ken Rockwell's kids but not our own. Constantly buying high-end photo gear then selling it on craigslist the second Canon or Nikon releases something new. Complains endlessly about lowballers, tire-kickers and pixel peepers. Sold car to buy a Leica body and now wants to mortage house to buy lenses, all at Ken Rockwell's insistence. Maybe you can reprogram him. I have no time because I have to cart our kids around on the TTC and work two jobs while while he fiddles with film and DSLR to achieve super-saturated highlights.
Reasonable offers accepted: Food, clothing, 1992 Subaru Justy. Offers of photo equipment will promptly be deleted! Lowball kickers are welcome! A swift one in the nuts will do him some good.
  • Location: North York
