Five dollars for the cradle.
Solid brass.
Shines like gold.
Those are just smudges.
Nothing windex can't fix.
For an extra dollar
I'll even throw in the baby.
It shines like gold, too.
Those are just smudges on its face.
Nothing windex can't fix.

"Imperious, choleric, irascible, extreme in everything, with a dissolute imagination the like of which has never been seen... there you have me in a nutshell, and kill me again or take me as I am, for I shall not change."

From his Last Will & Testament, Marquis de Sade

SD's havin' a sale
That was fun. Reminds me of an April Fools classified, I penned at college: "Free to good home. 6 month old baby. Has shots."

Bobby, WHill, Chime and Poes...
...thanks for dropping by!

Bobby - Somehow I knew you would have a good chuckle with this ;) Does the baby in your ad come with a lifetime guarentee? Sick sick sick...

WilliamHill - Love the twist, though I don't think it was too mind-blowing in such a small piece. Dammmit, still have to do the write-off vote thing ;) Expect a comment and a rating sometime soon.

Windchime - A negative response is a response nonetheless, yes? The ugly and juvenile still have their place here and there, to remind the rest of us what makes our lives worth living. I'm rambling...

PoesandPoetry - You miss reading my work? How flattering :) If were were on msn I would bust out the blushing face, but since we're not, well, yeah. Some of the things that I'm working on probably wouldn't make it past the censors, but you'll see more of me. No worries =)

How did I miss this?
As a mother, you'd think I would be somewhat offended, but this peice still made me smile. Must be something in the writing?! :)

nice..very nice
This has shades of Neil Gaiman. Its that subtle distorted humor. This one does shine like gold. No windex needed.
