Body of content:
Craigslist pranks always end up connecting me to odd people, and this prank call was no different! I found an advertisement by a guy looking to pick up appliances or scrap metal, so I called him up as Tyrone and asked if he would want to take away a bunch of used shavers. There was one catch - the shavers were clogged with pubes!
He was thrown off by the request and started rambling about his former life as a “Godfather” type of gangster in Cuba, and his music video productions for big-name rappers. Do you think this guy really did everything he said or was it just talk? What kind of Craigslist ads should I call up next? Let me know in the comments!
