At that price, I might be interested if it were nearby. I know several people who could be the monkey!

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 a piano, but a funny listing indicating the seller at least has some goal....

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.
