Man seeks “Honey I Shrunk The Kids” role-playing partner on Craigslist

Pin it

Which is a shame, because I was only in the market for a Short Circuit role-playing partner. I guess you can't always get lucky when it comes to Craigslist. Maybe this man had better luck: it seems like this isn't some kind of fetish thing — it was listed under "Writing Gigs" (I'm sure it's the sort of thing a desperate freelancer would love to find and not get annoyed by at all) — and does seem to be mostly, er, literary in nature.

Basically he wants a woman who will… talk about… things… shrunken… Cheerios? To be honest, I'm still not entirely sure what this elusive partner would be doing. Is this like a phone thing? What do you want, Honey I Shrunk the Kids man?! Maybe you all can figure it out:

(You can read the whole hilarious Craiglist post here if the text in that image is too small.) While I am confused by this ad, I do like that he's looking for a "verbose" woman. "Yes, I want you to be so talkative I actually start to get annoyed with you. That's perfect." Not a huge market for those kinds of people, I imagine.
