Update to YSaC, Vol. 333: Database fail LIVE!

2009 July 15
by drmk

A while back I posted this shining example of when spambots go hilariously awry, featuring this post:

The craigs list – 34

Hello. I am an MAN looking for an WOMAN who is LAID BACK. I am 21 years old and I like to WATERSKIING and also to CAMPING. I am a good sense of humor with a fun and tall.

My favorite movies are TITANIC, FRIED GREEN TOMATOES, and [ERROR: MOVIE NOT FOUND], but I’m not into chick flicks.

I like to take my dog, MIFFY in the back seet of my HARLEY-DAVIDSON MOTOR CYCLE. Maybe you would like to ride with us?

My favorite music bands are ABBA, AC//DC, and AIROSMITH.


Not content to leave awful enough alone, boyofutica has turned this post into a live-action dating video:

This. Is. Awesome. The rubber duckie bit at the end made me cry with laughter. Thank you!!

    This is BRILLIANT.
    I am a fan of the RUBBER DUCKY at the end.
    The maker of this video should get an AWARD.
    The only thing better than that video is [error: nothing better than that video can be found]

    OMG that was brilliant! We need more dramatic readings like this. Perhaps this will start a spinoff video blog of dramatic readings of crappy Craigslist posts.

      There’s always ProjectRant (see link in sidebar), who do dramatic readings of people’s rants. I love what they’re doing — in fact, we have a joint production upcoming.

        Also, this video gets funnier every time I watch it. A sure sign of a winner!

    OMG this is the best. I don’t think I’ve laughed this hard in a long time. I kept having to refer back to the ad, especially when he pronounced ‘seet’. Awesome boyofutica, pure and simple awesomeness.

    Yes, funny all around. The video was hilarious. The duck at the end was uber creepy. However, not as creepy as this line of text in the original ad: “I like to take my dog, MIFFY in the back seet of my HARLEY-DAVIDSON MOTOR CYCLE”

    Let’s boil this down and correct it a bit to “I like to take my dog in the back seat.”


    Now I have to go stick a fork in my eyes to get these images out of my head.

    I have watched this too many times to admit, and it still hasn’t gone stale. To me, the masterstroke is the mouth-quirk whilst pronouncing “seet.”

    Huh. Very few of our current group of commentators replied on this post. Could it be possible they haven’t SEEN the best of YSaC?

    Also, why hasn’t boyofutica done any more of these? PLEASE?

    Finally, I’m holding up my rubber ducky!
