And he sure is breathless about it (or he can't find the "period" key).

Craigslist is but one indicator of the state of education in Duhmerica. Even setting aside the abysmal grammar, spelling, and punctuation, I regularly see gems like:

*The truck has an inline V6. (And: Did you know stock Corvairs have V6 engines? Some CL advertisers say so.)
*It needs breaks. (No, I'll take it without breaks, thank you.)
*It's a 98' Accord. (Hey, my house isn't even 98 friggen' feet long. Where do you park it?)
*It's a hardtop. (Then why does it have B-pillars?)
*It's a 1966 Catalina. (Then why is there a '67 in the pictures?)
*The body is solid. Needs floors and trunk. (How do you define "solid"?)
*If the add is up it's still for sale. (Does he mean the A.D.D. he suffered from while sitting in school for 13 years and learning nothing?)
*Ads in the Free section titled "Free" and ads in the For Sale section titled "For Sale". (No S***, Sherlock. Think I'll open it?)
*Ads for things like clothing or tires with no sizes listed or shown in the pictures. (Yes, I will call you because I want jeans and tires so badly I don't care if they fit anything I have.)
*Pictures taken at night. (Like we won't see what your P.O.S. really looks like once we get there.)

Oof Da, that's enough for now. :/
