Wanna Buy A Restaurant?

22 Dec


A friend of mine sent me a link to an ad on the Toronto Craigslist that he found to be quite odd…it was an advertisement for a “Free Restaurant Business, Great Location” in Buffalo.  The text reads as follows:

I am offering a turn key (~*super famous*~) restaurant in the heart of the Elmwood Strip. Business is ready to go and includes a full commercial kitchen, bar, plasma TV’s, Xbox 360’s, live Goatse shows, etc. All that’s required is to sign a lease. First one ready to sign gets the business FREE! If you sign in the next 24 hours, you can also have a complementary hooker! She’s guaranteed to be STD free, but the bathroom seats in the restroom aren’t…. just don’t tell the health department! haha!

Prime commercial property located in the heart of the “Elmwood Strip” section of Buffalo, NY (a one hour and fifteen minuet drive from Toronto so don’t expect many Canucks but expect plenty of blue collar scum). Buffalo’s Elmwood Avenue is an urban village (not to be confused with ghetto slums) that beats off to a different drummer. The Elmwood Strip is a neighborhood that attracts people who set trends rather than follow them. It’s swarming with hookers and blow, DAMMIT. Why do you think it’s called the Elmwood Strip?

Please call Mr. Krinsky at (917) 856-8088 Also you must carry a basket of saurkraut when you come to sign, while holding your own sausage.

Anyone have any details on this?  I’m not interested in buying, of course,  I just wonder why someone would put something like that up.

    It’s hard to figure the motives of some people. Someone home on Christmas break who thinks they are funny. Who the hell knows or cares.
    But I will sign for the plasma TV’s.
    Oh yeah, blues collar scum? I though that was hipster territory!
    *sigh* Kids nowadays….

    Whoever posted that particular link made it possible for anyone to manipulate the posting. If you click on the “edit” button, you could change it to whatever you want. This link was posted on a local hyperlocal website, and I’m surprised that whoever did so was so unsophisticated as to do so in this fashion.
