    A craigslist ad that really had me chuckling was one that read:

    pharrit for sale.

    LOL...then you could name it "Pharoah the Pharrit".

    I almost didn't bother to click - then saw it was Choco'mare so thought it might be worth a look

    The show that gets us cracking up is the Hog Hunters - so glad they put up subtitles.

    Oh man, too funny!! And the Pharrit! Wow what is wrong with people? I've seen Philly (filly), Belgum (Belgian), Purcharon (Percheron) and a Therbred which I assume was Thoroughbred.

    This time of year is BAD because all the fools and idiots are uhnloading their horses so they don't have to feed them through the winter. Then they'll go buy a new one at the auction in the spring.

    As a inveterate crossworder & Scrabble-fiend I avoid CL for this reason.

    But a "loanmore" - maybe the guy's a mortgage banker?

    I still chuckle at this one, it actually ran in the print classifieds years ago:

    One ton wench for sale. Comes with 12 foot chain. $$$$/bo

    Would not want that pi$$ed at me!
