  49. Mrs. Bojangles Needs a Roommate Looking to share a cheap pad with a mature roommate? Look no further than Craigslist, where a woman is offering the second bedroom of her Murray Hill apartment for only $700 a month. There’s a catch, though: I am an elderly lady, in my 70’s. I am looking for someone lovely to live in the second bedroom(lovely people only). I am not thrilled about living with someone but I could use the extra cash. I have only one rule. You must wear a belt I designed that has bells all over it. I do this so I know when you are in the appartment and where in the appartment you are. If you have friends over, they must wear the device as well. I only have 2, so no more than 1 friend over. Hear that? Only one friend. $700 LOOKING TO SHARE MY APPARTMENT WITH SOMEONE LOVELY (Murray Hill) [Craigslist]

    You Too Can Slave for an Established Food Personality! A certain “well-known food writer/personality” is looking for an intern on Craigslist. Before we can even start to guess who it is (clue: he or she is based in Brooklyn), we have to ask: What exactly is a food personality? Are we talking about Andrea Strong or, like, Cap’n Crunch? Also, there are perks! You’ll “get to work with an established food communications professional.” Potentially exciting, but — food communications? Why does this make us think of the guy from Close Encounters who plays with his mashed potatoes? While we’re scratching our heads, why don’t you read the ad and help us figure out who this well-known food writer/personality/communications professional might actually be? Comments are below; we eagerly await the reveal on this one. Intern to Food Writer/Personality [Craigslist]
