The free internet classified site, the go-to destination for anyone looking for a used car, a job, free furniture with distressing stains, or some sweet, sweet ‘lovin in the “personals” section, has turned into a never-ending source of entertainment for car enthusiasts. Usually that takes the form of questionably customized cars or ridiculous descriptions, but occasionally you get somebody thinking outside the box, like one Knoxville poster.

He (and we are assuming it’s a “he,” though there’s no way to be sure) also states that due to the large volume of replies he gets, he might not answer right away, or at all. When taken as a whole, we’re really hoping this post is a gag rather than a real offer, because if it’s not, it seems like an invitation to be raped, murdered, and turned into a skin suit, maybe not in that order.
