If only Santiago had looked on Freecycle, he wouldn’t have had to work so hard for that marlin.

OFFER: Marlin taxidermy of real fish for restoration –I have two taxidermy mounts of real marlin fish.

One is 85 inches, the other is 63 inches long. Both are in need of extensive restoration (e.g., broken bill). I’ve restored several (its not that hard), but we are moving and I would like to take only the ones that are completed — so these two are available.

So many of the posts we feature here on Freakcycle are usually of the well-meaning, but farcical and bungling variety.  Poor so-and-so’s absurdly asking for the moon and only getting our scorn. We embrace you and profile you here each day but only in the most playful of ways because without you, we’d be a blog-tastrophe.

There are a few rotten apples in our midst though, who truly deserve a Freakcycle-style beatdown.  We reserve the right to out these ne’er-do-wells who submit a wanted post in the guise of helping someone or harmlessly putt-putting around with a hobby.  For shame you scoundrels, we got your 20 lashes right here.  Wish we could use a whip but you’ll have to settle for the tongue.

If Freakcycle were to post a WANTED, without any repercussions from a self-righteous Freecycler, or threat from an annoying blogging watchdog like Freakcycle (we hate us!) the post would read a little something like this:

WANTED: Anything and everything I’ve ever been denied-  Here’s a short list Freecycle folks, in case you can help me out.  A Big Wheel ’cause I never had one as a child, size 8 quad roller skates with blue wheels in mint condition, a potter’s wheel with a year’s supply of clay, a horse (preferably an Arabian) to ride when the spirit moves me, a big plus if the the horse’s name is “Ghost Rider”, “Double Fantasy” (my fave John and Yoko album) or “Wind Runner”.  I’m also looking for an Atari 2600 (controllers included of course) with the games Ms. Pac Man, Asteroids, Pole Position, Breakout, Centipede, Galaxion, Mario Brothers , and Cookie Monster Crunch, a Saab 900 Turbo convertible with a leather interior (if you have one laying around), this huge collection of WWF Classic wrestlers http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5ztLVzUIfU, and a fly swatter that yells “Die, sucker!”.  Thanks.

Ours is not nearly as bad as these two, right? Right?

Oh this treacherous shell that carries me from place to place deceives me.  The body is only a temporary dwelling, like a house.  But like any shelter, it eventually gives way to the years and the elements that beat upon it every day.

Still I look in the mirror and I see a fine wine.  The label is getting worn and it’s peeling around the edges and the cork’s a bit brittle, but contained within is an intoxicating and potent elixir.

That is my mantra as I check my reflection once again, moving my face right, then left, examining all the subtle angles and the almost imperceptible scar that runs most of the terrain on the left side of my face. The defective jaw and the crumbling vessel that is my body. Here’s another piece of the puzzle for you after waxing poetic for a spell.

My back is killing me because my mattress is too soft.  My bed frame is looking for a new occupant to house its current occupants as it delivers us into Morpheus’ embrace. Had to finish on a dramatic and pretentious note lest you think Freakcycle is getting all macabre and philosophical on you.

Is this the mattress of my dreams? You bet your sweet Edgar Allan Poe it is.

OFFER: Queen-sized mattress, left in the rain & wet. Would probably be fine if you left it to dry. Bring two people to pick up because it’s heavy.

Thanks to Happy Campers who sent us this post via SUBMISSIONS

Old, peeling, tacky, filled with dirt, and weed ridden.  Did I pique your interest yet? Run to your computer and get your hands on these lovelies.  Freakcycle special in the garden center, aisle 5.

OFFER: Two planters made from old tires-I’m getting rid of two planters made from old tires, painted white with peeling paint. They are rather tacky, in my opinion, but if someone wants them, please save them from the landfill! You can have the dirt inside too, if you want it, although no guarantees on its quality. I think it might be weed ridden by now.
