Freakcycle as you already know, embraces the strange.  Heck, we’d even venture to say that we’d like to hold it in a death grip if we could.  People who say strange things, like in this next post are our very favorite.  We like it when the motive for strangeness is obscured or enveloped in a haze of non-sensical jibber-jabber.  Take that last sentence, for example…HUH?  Exactly our point.

We introduce another category for our bizarre bazaar—“What’s He Building In There?”.  This will be the repository for all those Freecycle posts that hint at the possibility of a mad scientist, carpenter, or some other crafty freak at work.  People asking for glycerin by-products, old hen houses, and yes, sometimes even a hammer.  That hammer post was what gave us the idea for the new category. That and of course, one of our favorite oddballs, Tom Waits.

WANTED: 4 egg, egg poacher.

OFFER: Technical/brand name: Equalizer Short Leg Walker

This is a boot with 5 Velcro straps that is designed to be worn over a cast, but can be worn without a cast over a foot/ankle that is not broken but sprained or just a little messed up, or just lonely and in need of attention. Also great for medium-duty butt-kicking when steel toe boots are just too much. Can also be used to stomp on bugs, snakes, and the occasional toe, after which you might be able to sell the boot.

Makes freaky footprints in the snow. You can also get out of a lot of work with one of these things!

Reply with phone number. Earliest pickup gets preference.

Thanks to Resident Hippie for sending this to us via SUBMISSIONS

Why call it a PICKUP?  If they had actually picked them up off the floor, the beads would still be available.

P/U Beads in Hxxxxxl

I actually spilled these all over the floor so they are no longer available.

Oh mercy me, Missoula.  When are you going to notice us and let us into your Freecyle club?  Is it not enough that we have stalked you endlessly on Twitter? Sweet Garden City gorgeousity…give up the goods.  You tease us with your one-line come-ons and it just makes us want you more.  We professed our undying admiration to you once before right here for all of the internets to see and still our love goes unrequited.

We’ll say it one more time…no one posts Freecyle posts like you.  We are enraptured. Put us out of our misery and give us a cursory glance. Don’t make us play the James Ingram card again and have to go out like Gary did.

Anyone out there from Missoula?  We need a connection.

  • [Missoula-Freecycle] OFFER: leaky fish tank. Missoula
  • [Missoula-Freecycle] OFFER: some what working baby gate. Missoula

I love this post.  I love the term female pants.  Putting on the female pants.  Going to try to use this as often as possible in my everyday conversations.  “Hey there, you look fantastic today…loving those female pants”, “Ladies, did you know there’s a sale on female pants at the K-Mart?” and so on.

Oh, and the urgency, the intrigue of this post!  This is an emergency.  An emergency?  I’m in absolute rapture…sigh. If I could have a Freecycle post of this caliber waiting for me in my inbox on the daily, I’d be dancing pirouettes in my skivvies across the parquet floor of my mansion.  How’s that for a visual?  You’re quite welcome, love.

One thing’s nagging at me though…I keep on wondering if this is poor Lady Gaga’s dad posting this on Freecycle.  You think?

WANTED-: Female pants—have a family member in desperate need of womans pants and shorts.  She is a size 5

This is an emergency

All help will be greatly appretiated
