Hurteau: Craigslist Swing Set, Deer Not Included

By Dave Hurteau

So the kids are about that age where my wife and I are thinking about getting a swing set for the backyard. And, truth be known, there isn’t as much venison in the freezer this year as I would like. So you can imagine how excited I was to see this Craigslist post:

Commercial Swing Set and Slide – $850

Commercial Swing Set and Slide: Heavy Duty This is the Type used at Elementary Schools.

An Additional Slide is also available, and can be purchased separate [sic]. Additional Playground equipment is also available[.] Deer is not included.

That is, until I read that last sentence. Deer not included!? C’mon!

Who’s going to pay $850 for a swing set with no deer?

[Actually, I saw this post on a website called You Suck At Craigslist, whose existence says something both hilarious and a little troubling about the state of humanity.]

That is recycling at its best. A true multi use structure that any serious hunter / parent should have.

The swing set is grossly overpriced, insist on the deer too! (But only if ifs processed already and frozen.)

I especially like how the person pulled back the swing next to it ... nothing like preparation!

The slide looks as if it doesn't end!

Thats funny! I think it should be more like $700 if the deer isn't included.

Hmmm.

Sniff sniff.

Bump bump.

I dunno.

Well, I guess so...

WHAM!

Fish on!

I guess I don't see how the advertisement of an overpriced swingset without the meat could justify the issuance of a challenge to a fight at least to the point of unconsciousness.

... and we always wondered what would happen if you swung all the way around...

I think the Legal Dept. must have insisted on the caveat as a defense against prosecution for attempting to sell wildlife. If there were children in the picture, they might not have noticed the same potential hazard.
