Fancy Mattress, Complete With Afterbirth Stains, For Sale On Craigslist


Oh, Craigslist: will you ever cease to amaze? Please turn your attention to this ad placed in the “For Sale” section of Dallas Craigslist. What might look like a regular, used Tempur-Pedic mattress is most definitely not:

For sale is a relatively new and luxuriously comfortable queen size Tempur-Pedic mattress. It was purchased new about one year ago and the memory foam feels amazing. It will conform to your body perfectly and feels like you are sleeping on a cloud without any of the painful pressure points, tossing and turning, etc. Originally purchased for $1500, this bastion of comfort can be yours today for only $500 or the highest offer (starting high due to its sentimental value).
P.S. One cosmetic detail… Although there are some slightly noticeable afterbirth stains on one side of the mattress (see bottom picture), they have been thoroughly sanitized and are also shaped like a heart. This could be a romantic addition for anyone looking to add that extra spark to your love life. Placenta/bloodstains easily covered by your favorite linens. Whether you are looking for a good-luck charm to help with a child of your own or simply recognize the luxurious comfort of a top-quality mattress at a superb value, this mattress is sure to satisfy.

One cosmetic detail? Slightly noticeable afterbirth stains? Could be a romantic addition for anyone looking to add that extra spark to their love life? Let this be a lesson to all ye brave Craigslisters: make sure you read the entire description of an item before putting money on it. What might be a “heart-shaped design” to one person, is just a a bunch of bloodstained placenta marks to another.
