Brooklyn man giving away his giant hamster wheel on Craigslist
Have you ever felt like your life has become a monotonous routine, and it feels like you’re just a hamster running in its wheel but never going anywhere? Well now you can literally do that, as there’s currently a giant hamster wheel being given away on Craigslist.
The all-caps listing reads (all sic):
“FREE HUMAN SIZED HAMSTER WHEEL AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE PICK UP. CAN ACCOMODATE UP TO 200 LBS. FULLY FUNCTIONAL. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR HOUSES WITH SMALL CHILDREN OR ANIMALS. 50 LBS OF SHREDDED NEWSPAPER ALSO AVAILABLE.”
With the newspaper? Talk about a deal!
Gothamist caught up with the seller, Sandra Z. Zzz (whose parents must’ve fallen asleep in the middle of naming him), who was “in the middle of using the wheel” when they called him. Zzz claims that he made the wheel so he could run in it for exercise. But then it started to ruin his life:
“I can’t make any friends anymore. Any time I bring one of my friends over, there will be like a hamster wheel, like too much of a conversation piece. I can’t function as a normal human being anymore.”
“When I have a great conversation with someone and I bring them over to my house and there’s a hamster wheel, it’s this whole thing, then we talk about my childhood and stuff, it’s too much.”
If this sounds like something you could handle, Zzz is currently looking for “the right match,” so you better hurry before someone else gets it!
