You never know where miscellaneous corners of the internet, like Craigslist, will take you. Because there’s nothing sacred when humans are putting the ads out there. You may as well sell your soul to the devil.
Thanks to the boldly named subreddit “r/CrackheadCraigslist,” we now can get the real scope of weirdness going behind the seemingly innocent practice of selling your stuff for cash online. From a Trump voodoo doll made of flaming hot Cheetos to toilet paper seeds, there’s virtually nothing you couldn’t buy. Let’s take a look at some of the most bizarre ads down below that will make us question either (or both) what these people were thinkin’ and what the heck is it.

Bored Panda contacted the r/CrackheadCraigslist moderator Susan, known by the name siouxsie_siouxv2 on Reddit. Susan told us that the subreddit was created almost exactly three years ago, but only recently it took off. “Our users mainly intersect with r/trashy and r/delusionalartists, so as those subreddits grow, so does this one."
There were many super bizarre craigslist ads posted on the Crackhead Craigslist subreddit, but some were funnier than others. “My personal favorites are the half eaten bottles of condiments. But my all time favorite post is this one, from a lost redditor,” said Susan.
Damn You, Coronavirus.
The subreddit r/CrackheadCraigslist was created back in 2017 and now has 315K members. Among many odd objects that have appeared on it, some of the most upvoted ones include the door ram left by a SWAT team for $40, a fake wasp nest for $30, and a pet lobster for $50. The community describes itself as a place for sharing “half-eaten bag of Doritos for $2,” but the cases show it gets more bizarre than that.

Plenty of weird things are put up for sale every day. eBay has announced a list of the 20 weirdest things ever sold and it goes beyond that. There was a jar with a ghost in it put up for auction that got sold for $55,000 after numerous bids. Unsurprisingly, the buyer didn’t pay for the item in the end.
In 2000, a man discovered the meaning of life and put it up for sale for only $3.26. There was also a woman who sold a piece of bubble gum spat right out of Britney Spears’s mouth. The winning bid was $14,000. Meanwhile, a man named Andrew from Nebraska auctioned off his forehead as ad space. He said he would get a permanent brand name or logo tattooed on his head. The snore remedy “SnoreStop” won the auction and Andrew was to be paid $37,375.
