No posting last night as we were too busy doing what we do best.  Mischief night is way better than Halloween.  We’ll take chaos over candy any time.

We know what you like.  Some Freakcycle mayhem for you. What follows is a harvest banquet of foolishness.  All these posts were received yesterday.

  • OFFER: Down Bed Topper- Please read description carefully!!  We had this down-filled Queen sized mattress topper in our RV for the past 2 years and we got invaded by mice this past year! There are spots of mouse urine staining here and there but overall, they did not really do that much damage. I was going to throw it out but there is plenty of great down feathers inside that have not been touched that could be used for stuffing other pillows or stuffed animals or for craft projects.  Anyone want to use it or cut it up for the stuffing, please come get it anytime! Thanks.
  • OFFER: Broom- Used broom. Please state date and time of preferred pick up. Easy front porch pick up.Thanks
  • from same person: OFFER: Used sponge mop in good condition- No longer use sponge mop. Previously used, but still has a lot of life left in it!

OFFER: Can of worms- Started some renovation work in the basement. The contractor told me I had a can of worms down there. I don’t need a can of worms. Quick pick up please.


Shut your mouth now, haters.  Yes, this is a real Freecycle post.  A gift from the gods, right in my inbox.  Don’t question the authority.

Okay, I know it’s weird.  It’s probably the strangest post I’ve seen to date and I’ve seen quite a bit.

Why would anyone have a can of worms in their basement?  Who are the most likely suspects in Freakcycle’s opinion, you ask?  Could it be:


a. a half-assed fisherman?

b. a band of basement moles?  (huh?)

c. a tiny subterranean gnome who composts?

d. What are little boys made of? What are little boys made of? Frogs and snails and puppy-dogs’ tails, that’s what little boys are made of.  (nope, no mention of worms in that poem)


Downright stumped.  Gimme your thoughts.  Just don’t tell me it’s fake ’cause I’ll whoop yo’ ass with the slimy can.
