This posting is real, incidentally: we just got off the phone with the group's Andre Weston, who confirmed that he'd upped the advertisement yesterday. Since then, about 50 people have contacted the duo. Why use Craigslist, a place people typically use to sell couches, and not to pick up new ... More >>
