Be careful when you walk into the room. If the anti-gravity generator ever shuts down for whatever reason, someone could really get hurt!

Not quite sure this is funny, but full marks for creativity I guess...

http://losangeles.craigslist.org/sfv/msg/3650688050.html

"The Company Of People Who Built This Piano Had to Know God."

"It Has No Serial Number Because It Was Built Before The People Decided To Use Serial Numbers."

"This Piano Is Not Getting New Strings and Hammers. That is Not Always a Good Idea! Chickering Had Their Own Piano Science."

I can't decide if I'm horrified or in awe. Maybe there are people in LA with the proper $$ to braincell ratio to buy a minimally refurbished 130 year old Chicago Chickering upright for $8000.

Electricity was invented ???

Methinks the chickering drug and accessory company has come into play. I doubt it has anything to do with the piano!

Well, I can’t answer for the ad but here is a men’s fairy tale;

Men are the only animals in the world that walk down the street, middle aged, balding, a pot belly, shirtless, and think they are a sex object.

Maybe not. I have tuned one like that, with a single repetition action. Not a very distinguished instrument!

Do any of you belong to freecycle.org? They sometimes give away pianos there. I'm checking out a player tomorrow. I don't have high hopes for it!

Also not particularly funny, except for how hard I'm trying to ignore this ad so another piano doesn't follow me home wink The lack of pictures just makes it more tantalizing, since you can pretend it could be amazing instead of the basket case it probably is.

This is pretty interesting---it's a "flat style" piano. I guess as opposed to a hilly style??
