As if we needed further proof that you can indeed find ANYTHING on Craigslist, a new trend has cropped up: women selling their positive pregnancy tests on the classified ads site.
You moms out there are kicking yourselves because YOU didn’t think of this money-making opportunity, aren’t you? Well, good thing I kept mine! Woo-hoo! (Too much information? You can tell me so on my new site: FiveYearOldPositivePregnancyTestsforSale.com.)
One post from Buffalo, New York, sums up the appeal for potential shoppers:
“Wanna get your boyfriend to finally pop the question? Play a trick on Mom, Dad or one of your friends? I really don’t care what you use it for.”
That particular test was going for the reasonable rate of $25 dollars. The tests in Texas seem to be slightly more expensive, at $30 a pop. Perhaps because of more demand from Southern ladies looking to trick their men into marrying them.
Another ad reassures buyers conscious of name brands, “This will NOT be a dollar store test. Will be either Clearblue First Response or EPT.”
PHEW. As I always say, if I’m going to buy a urine-soaked pregnancy test to play a prank on my parents, it had better be top-of-the-line.
Other possible, totally classy uses for the positive pregnancy tests include:
- Using it to make your boyfriend cough up money for “doctor’s appointments”
- Telling your wife/girlfriend that you found it in the trashcan and she has some ‘splainin’ to do.
- Having Maury Povich buy them in bulk, thus giving his show plenty of material
- Keeping it by your bedside, because who wouldn’t want to wake up to something that somebody else has peed on? (In short, a substitute for toddlers who are potty training.)
Baby showers are a time for women to “ooohhh” and “aaahhh” over tiny socks and breast pumps, and for men to be thankful they’re not women.
Also, apparently, a time to let the Baby Mama know exactly what’s in store for her:
A cake AND effective birth control
Never before did I think I would have to censor a baby shower cake, but there’s a first for everything, I suppose — including the first time I’ve looked at a dessert and actually LOST my appetite (truly, a Sign of the Apocalypse).
For those of you who forgot your I.D. in order to see this X-rated goodie in all its uncensored glory, YES, the carpet matches the curtains. I know you were wondering. Sicko!
Important manufacturer health warning: They are not to be used for love making and you should always consult your doctor before using extra nipples.
And with one inappropriate squeeze, it suddenly became an XXX-mas Card. (One for the family to hang on the fridge year-round!)
Shauna Sand was doing WHAT at the pumpkin patch?
On the heels of the Beheaded Baby Dessert, I offer you a slice of the delicious-looking Redneck Amputee Cake:
“The Redneck Amputee”… sure to become the Farrelly brothers’ next feature film starring David Spade and Jaime Pressly.

“Why do strange men keep asking Mom how much she ‘charges for an hour’?”
Darn it! I’ve lined up my husband a top-notch photographer to take pictures of me and my growin’ belly tonight as I enter my 23rd week, and this woman has totally stolen my thunder by having her picture taken in MY special maternity outfit:
Lace-up hot shorts: the latest in maternity wear elegance
Oh, well. At least I can still wear it to the baby shower.
The challenge: Make a maternity prom dress using only your grandmother’s living room drapes, scissors and a healthy dose of elegance.
And voilà! Whoever said maternity clothes can’t be stylish, clearly did not see this classy little number.
