Man Posts Absolutely Captivating Ad For Used Yoga Mat On Craigslist (Photo)

Even though there’s a very good chance that he didn’t write it in the first place, there is a six word story allegedly penned by Ernest Hemingway that simply reads “For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn.” Nobody is arguing that Probably-Not-Hemingway’s original piece isn’t powerful and thought-provoking, but I honestly believe that this Craiglist ad […]
