Declassified: Leotards and Dairy Queen

In this week's declassified: villainous love.

An Anti-Heroic Connection

Finding love in Toronto is especially hard for those of us who like to wear our leotards everywhere. Sigh.


Dear Every Sidewalk Solicitor Everywhere

Yes. If you are standing on a sidewalk with a clipboard, raising money for some kind of cause, you can safely assume that anyone who stops to talk is either from out of town or hitting on you.


Burying the Lede

Ads like this one, where the poster requests some kind of “personal assistance” that turns out to be sex (or something close) are surprisingly common. Judging by the lack of media reports on sexual-harassment lawsuits where Craigslist is somehow implicated, I’m guessing they don’t work that often.


Your Naughty Bits

The most surprising thing about this one is that the guy actually does apparently have a band. The demo on his Tumblr is about what you’d expect: a hip-hop song with a keyboard beat and a verse about a werewolf.


Dairy Queen Dramatics

This ad seems really poignant, in a way, when you consider the fact that Reese’s Pieces contain no chocolate. The person who posted this craves a candy that has never existed.

A lot of people do a lot of weird stuff on the internet, and ground zero for commercial e-weirdness is Craigslist. In Declassified, Torontoist combs over our city’s listings to find the best (and worst) of the bunch. Find listings we should include in our next edition? Email them to declassified@torontoist.com.
