Texas Mom Tries to Unload Toddler on CraigsList [Candy Dish]

So in terrible, awful, no good, very bad news today, some lady decided that she didn't want her three-year-old little boy anymore. So the next move is to obviously create a CraigsList ad...

Two Manly Centaurs Need Weddings Dates, Look to Craigslist for Help

Your +1 is perhaps the most important factor in your ability to sink or swim in a sea of Baby's Breath and tulle. (PS: I dare you to find a creepier named flower.) Perhaps that's why two guys from New York posted an epic ad to Craigslist seeking a couple willing ladies to join them March 23rd for an evening of butter-cream frosting and free booze.

Chef Farts on His Employees, Then Tells The World Via Craigslist. Nice.

In what is probably the weirdest news of the day, one self-proclaimed well-known chef (he's allegedly been on The Food Network) set himself up for the ultimate challenge. He attempted to fart on every single one of his employees.

15 Craigslist Ads You Shouldn’t Answer [Photos]

Today I braved the world of Craigslist and found some pretty disturbing examples; examples that under no circumstances, should EVER be answered!

Best Of Craigslist Missed Connections

Surely you've all heard of missed connections on Craigslist, and if you haven't I highly suggest you check it out for your entertainment. Yes, Craigslist is useful for buying furniture and some people luck out with roommates, but it can also be a bit creepy. Sometimes missed connections are sweet and flattering, but a lot of them are downright ridiculous.

Sexy Time: My Most Embarrassing Sex Tales

I was far more taken aback than offended because I feel like it was a pretty tame, innocuous tale especially compared to other dalliances on my sex résumé. Since I am pretty open (read: shameless) in this column, I've decided to highlight four of my experiences that I was actually disturbed (or just plain embarrassed) by.

WTF Friday: May I Water Your Lawn?

The puking man water sprinkler is the best piece of gardening frippery any child will ever have the opportunity to be horrified by. It even says right in the ad- your kids are going to love running through the "barf" on hot days! Guys, I really think we can redefine some classic summer memories with this one.

The Post-Grad Journey: The Job Hunt!

With a full week in California under my belt, I’ve officially moved in. This move-in was a lot different than any dorm room move-in I’ve done throughout college. Instead of signing for my dorm key, I signed a lease. A real “I’m an adult, I must abide by this contract or I’m legally responsible” lease.

Craigslist Creepers: Dabbling in The Obscene

My affair with Craigslist started fairly innocuously - laughing and mocking the lameness that is inherent once you forget about being yourself and present the sanitized, most palatable version of who you are. Then I ventured into the infamous "casual encounters" section and was immediately assaulted with the most vulgar pleas for sexy time with strangers.

Get Some Fast Cash In Your Wallet This Holiday Season

College students are strapped for cash on a normal, average day of the year. Which means we are doubly strapped for cash when the need to buy Christmas and Chanukah gifts arises. Winter activities like ice skating and hot chocolate are sucking up our funds and now we need to buy 30 gifts for every member of our sorority…it's not pretty.

You Can Recycle More Than Just Beer Cans

We live in a world of disposable everything. Cups, plastic bags, razors, boyfriends; you name it, you can find it in a disposable form. And although this makes our lives terribly easy, it also makes our landfills terribly full. By just being a tad more conscious of your recycling options, you can make a huge difference with relatively minimal effort.

WTF Friday: Someone Really Likes IKEA

I thought I was IKEA's biggest fan. Everything I own in my apartment is from that place. But this woman would definitely beat me for President of the IKEA Fan Club. She may not be amazing, but she knows what she likes. And it can be put together in 12 easy steps.

Life After College: What If…?

I've been asking a lot of questions lately. Mostly to myself, but I have a quirky tendency to mumble aloud so sometimes I get answers from people assuming that I was trying to have a conversation with them. But I appreciate their responses; I'll take anything I can get these days, with the exception of Yahoo answers.

Craigslist: A Haven for The Freakiest of Freaks

Here’s the thing: It ain’t easy being a broke college intern in New York City. So when my girlfriend Jenny’s sublet flaked out on her via email mere hours before she arrived in Manhattan, she threw herself back into Craigslist with a vengeance, scouring the site for affordable housing.

Sexy Time: There Is A Wrong Time for Sex

I’m not going to debate the morality of casual sex. Everybody has different reasons for “hooking up” and everyone experiences different consequences. There are some reasons for having casual sex, however, that really are just bad news. I know this because I’ve tried most of them…

Blogs That Make Us LOL

Usually when we need a little LOL here at the CollegeCandy headquarters we just go back through our old posts and marvel at how truly hilarious we all are. (And modest, too!) Or, you know, look through our Facebook photo albums from college. God, those were the days.

Sexy Time: Online Lovin’

When you think of internet dating, you probably think about your best friend’s 59 year-old father and his many (failed) attempts to meet “the one” on Even if we were dismally lonely, I highly doubt most of us would allow ourselves to get so far as to post our own profile for the viewing pleasure of a middle-aged audience. But what if the dating site was geared towards college students?

Money Matters: Summer Jobs, Anyone?

You're so busy with classes (and a rockin' social life), you can't seem to get ahead in the finance field. Sure, summer might be a great time to soak up some sun for those college students who are lucky enough NOT to be struggling with student loans, car payments, credit card bills, etc. But for a large majority of us, summer is the time to keep working our asses off... and get paid.
