Cow Skull for sale – in really good condition. $40









Me:  What sort of skull is this?  It looks impressive.  Strong.
Namaste to you, kind hunter,

Katie:  It’s a real cow skull.

Me:  Oh how wonderful!  Did you hunt the cow yourself?  I have never hunted cow, mostly just squirrel and other ground varmints.  Your cow skull would look wonderful in my den.  I think my family will like it when they visit (but I wont let my uncle Herman see it – he likes to lick things :( I dont know why) 
How much were you hoping to sell it for?

Katie:  $40 for the unlicked version

Me:  I sure hope its unlicked!  Silly uncles.  You never said how you killed the cow? I bet it was a great hunt!!  Is the skull pickup only or can I arrange for shipping?

Katie:  I’m afraid the cow died of natural causes.  And it’s for pick-up only – I would hate to ship it and it break.  Cash only too.  Thanks!

Me:  I am sorry to hear the cow died of natural causes.  I hope it did not suffer.  It was obviously a beautiful and majestic animal.  I live in Oregon.  Are you coming here any time soon? (We dont have sales tax and we have some really big lovely trees! I can show you them!)  I really need this skull.



 This is my first interstate interaction.  What a historic moment.   Katie is from Iowa and I was sent her ad by reader Stacy.  If you see something particularly interesting/lame on craigslist, feel free to email your submissions at and I may just have some fun with them.

    WHOOT! Thanks for the shout out! That is awesome! My hubby thought I was crazy for yelling “HOLY CRAP, he actually emailed about the skull!” My windows were open, I fear my neighbors think I am nuts too, the windows were open…

    Apparently in my excitement, I have forgotten how to form a sentence..You didn’t need to know TWICE that the windows are open…But if you had any doubts, they are, in fact…OPEN… ;)

      I am glad to hear they are in fact, open. Ventilation is the key to good health. Thanks again for the submissions Stacy.

    Most importantly (which you did not mention), the skull is from Beaverdale. Beaverdale.

    Good Job with the SKULL SKULL SKULL SKULL SKULL, Ty. And word, Stacy. Way to be on the lookout for interesting/lame on craigslist! I’m still just a little pissed off that no one told be how funny CL was until last week. Ok, I’m over it.

    I thought Katie would be more fun :(
    After she commented that it was an unlicked version I just knew she would play along. What a shame. It is a nice skull.

    Holly…I am very glad you found the joys of craigslist, you give the best commentary, you know! Ty would have material for a year with all the ads we posted on BBC! :) (Sorry Ty, Had to give a shout out to Holly)
