Craigslist ad wants suicide girls for new fetish bar concept?
Surfing through Craigslist ads is always a fun time, and answering them can be pretty entertaining as well. It's neat -- and telling -- to respond to an ad for a used convection oven and get a middle-aged married man looking for sex, respond to an ad for a part-time babysitting gig and get another married guy looking for sex, and respond to another ad for free fill dirt answered by....well, you get the idea.

This latest gem of an ad asks for suicide girls (in case you aren't in the know, these are goth-, punk-, indie- and pin-up-style ladies) to apply for jobs, presumably as waitstaff, at a not-yet-opened fetish-themed bar. The ad is sorely lacking in details, but asks interested females to send at least one photograph of themselves, along with their written reason(s) why they feel they are a good fit for the gig.
Not knowing precisely what the job entails is annoying, but a fairly common theme in CL ads. And this ad sorta leaves you wondering whether this bar thing is actually going to happen, or is one of those scenarios where well-meaning girls show up for a job interview and end up in the back of a warehouse with a mattress, a digital recorder, and a greasy guy with a Brooklyn accent named Sonny asking them to let him see the goods, already!
Is this a legit ad? You decide.
