|THE WEEK IN CRAIG!|
|By Lindsay Robertson||
Craig's List is an online free bulletin board where anyone can post classified ads of nearly any kind. There are Craig's Lists, or CL's, for most large cities, featuring helpful ads for things like housing, jobs, items for sale, personals and, most entertainingly, Missed Connections and Casual Encounters.
These last two, despite their ostensibly practical purposes, have devolved into a free-for-all where rumors are spread, bad poetry is written, battles are won and lost, and hearts are broken, all for our entertainment. The Week In Craig is your guide to the most fascinating accidental literary magazine on the web.
In Craig's List this week: Special Pointless Arguments Edition! A look at threesomes, the effect of bricks on penises and the Lothario that is Jay Schultz.
There's so much turmoil in the world today. Is our government doing the right thing? Is Saddam really as much of a threat as they tell us? And
Her friend spent the night last week, and my g/f said that we should
all sleep in the same bed, even though we have 2 empty guest bedrooms
Listers respond with advice:
you out of your mind?
didn't you just ask your girlfriend?
NOT broach the subject with your girlfriend:
Why why must it be the case that a guy must look at every single woman
as his next lay, as you seem to imply? (Because they're guys. How
old are you?)
I tried the sex "devoid of emotional connection" and it's
fun once or twice and then it sucks and gets weird. whatever, man. why
can't a guy be good friends with his ladies' friends? why does sex have
to be a part of it? i've been friends with plenty of my previous boyfriends'
friends. i suppose you'll tell me they all wanted to have sex with me.
There's a fun girl out there too!
Now that my boyfriend and I have broken up I have been dating his friends like crazy...it's perfect, because I get what I was lusting after AND I love knowing that some of it gets back to him. So far it is not messy, and fun as hell.
Those sound like famous last words.
Next Big Question: Are people named Jay Schultz pricks? Jay Shultz your (sic) a prick Your (sic) a two timing jerk. Ladies Beware!! Don't believe a word this guy says!
Yahoo! People Search lists 80 "Jay Schultz"s and twelve "Jay Shultz"s in New York City, but that didn't deter Craig's Listers from turning him into a big topic of debate!
Someone agrees: amen to you, girlfriend...he's a lyin', cheatin', shallow-ass m.f.!!!!
Someone wants to clarify: Are you talking about the Jay Schultz that went to Fordham Law School?
Why yes, he did: Yes He went to Fordham. So he said. Ladies beware He portrays himself like an innocent schoolboy but he's really a scummy lying two timing jerk. I'll give you the low down.
But wait! There's more gossip: ready for this one: He's engaged!!!
I am engaged to Jay and I am neither naive or stupid. We have a very open relationship and as a matter of fact I have seen most of his flings on videotape anyway.
Wow! She sounds cool. A happy ending for all or is it?
By the way Jen... you looked great on the video Jay gave me!!! Didn't you wonder why he kept looking over to the closet?? He may have lied to all of you, but Jay and I are two of a kind and like having an open relationship... sorry if anyone got their feelings hurt, but you shouldn't walk around this world with your eyes closed... you never know who could slip and fall deep inside you. At least it looks like most of you enjoyed it...
Okay, so maybe she's not so cool.
