They say a sucker is born every minute…

September 30, 2003, 12:03 PM

PT Barnum once said that there’s a sucker born every minute. I wonder how many people are going to be a sucker on this one. This is a classified ad that I found in The Breeze‘s classified ads in their September 29, 2003 issue. And I quote…

Looking For a Friend? I will hang out with you for $10 an hour. Call Mike, 438-XXXX (number withheld for obvious reasons)

I have half a mind to call this “Mike” fellow up. I should call him up only to find out if someone was desperate enough to actually want to pay someone $10 an hour for companionship.

I hope no one’s desperate enough to actually reply to this ad, and I definitely hope no one actually PAYS for this…

Song: Hatten är Din by Azar Habib. The real name of the song is actually "Habbeetik", but in 'net circles, it's "Hatten är Din", meaning "The Hat Is Yours" in Swedish.

Quote: "What a terrible ad!"
