Weird ad on gumtree – snail crushing model wanted!

Just thought I’d share this little piece of interweb craziness, taken from Gumtree Canberra:

“Currently trying to finish our snail crush project but can’t seem to find any ladys willing to step on them. Only require ankle down shots. Will pay good money for right pictures.”

I’m sure there’s a perfectly rational and sane explanation for this…

At least the folks on gumtree have some subtlety unlike *shudder* craigslist. There are certain images one can never forget.

Animal cruelty: marker for violent criminal. Hopefully the police noticed this.

What about this one? I think it’s meant to be for some romantic gesture, in which case it’s…not that romantic. Any other ideas?

Why do I keep reading this thinking “…..only Erin Molan need apply…..”?

“Only require ankle down shots “

I wonder if they’d accept guys if they shave before the photo shoot… Heck for $80 I’d paint my toenails too.

What’s the issue? Some people have a project. It involves crushing snails. Specifically, it involves women crushing snails. They want to take some pics of the crushing, and they’re prepared to nickel up for the pics.

I think that you and I must move in very different circles, LSWCHP.

As a dedicated tomato grower and snail crusher, I just wish I’d thought of this first.

I wonder how many out of the 242 visitors took the cash and started squashing?

I assume the need the photos as part of a Canberra Organic Gardening Pest Control Advertising campaign?

I also note in the Gumtree advert that the pin is centred on Parliament house…

FIFY.

Foot fetish no doubt. You see this a lot on the internets, usually it’s ladies feet pumping a gas pedal of a car. Bizarre!
