    That's cool, I get it. Bass is "boaring." Like a boar. An uncastrated male swine. Those suckers can be mean. Especially during mating season.
  2. Guess he couldn't hang with the big boars and had to sell.

    Ugh. Kids these days. It hasn't even been two weeks and he's "board."

    Makes me even sicker because I technically am "kids these days."

  4. Cut yourself some slack, unless you're hawking your presents already.

    I love the end of this ad: 'it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests'. Who is gonna contact this fruit loop about anything, including his 'boaring' bass.
  10. All I say is "one more cheap and almost new bass on Craig's".

    It's not an instrument for everyone, that's true. I know loads of bass drop outs.

    1. Complete the phrase "People who live in glass houses......"

    2. Understand the meaning of the phrase "the pot calling the kettle black".

    3. Look up the difference between "Add" and "Ad".

    4. Look up the difference between "hawking" and "hocking".

    ^^^ Er... The verb "hawk" means to sell or to peddle goods.

    It's actually a "Craigslist AD", not "ADD"...

    Technically sure...

    But the second one seems relevant considering the listing and the occasional twitchy nature of CL sellers.
  16. There is no hook up on it for my X-box 360.

    Just thought that I'd point out:

    "it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests" is attached to every CL advert. unless you (the lister) decide that you'd like to be contacted about commercial interests.

    peace... the advert. DID make me laugh

    It doesn't strike me as too odd an ad, really. I think the time to try and get your kids into playing instruments is before they're old enough to sell them on craigslist, though. ;)

    i will agree, but perhaps it was a way to get the kid away from guitar-hero, and put him into REAL live stuff...anyone who has spent time on video game music playing, can think it is boring to actually "learn" how to play the REAL DEAL.

    learning for real in the beginning sometimes is NOT fun, it is time consuming, full of effort, and you cant put it on "pause"
