The Funniest Craigslist Entry Of All Time

By Wyatt Earp | December 16, 2008


This was obviously written by a brother in blue from the NYPD - the only people on earth snarkier and funnier than the Philly PD. It is chock full of “sentence enhancers,” so if you’re weak of heart, please ignore the rest of the post. I can not in good conscience edit this thing of beauty for bad language.

That being said, sentence enhancers or not, this is the funniest thing you’ll read all week. Guaranteed.

Tips For Clueless People Who Get Mugged

So you’ve just moved into a new “gentrifying” neighborhood that’s full of urban culture, cheap(er) rents, and wonderful friendly people. An odd lack of organic food stores and greenmarkets, but you can’t have everything. So one day you’re doing something FUCKING RETARDED like walking back from the store alone at 1am, or walking home from the subway while texting your sorority sisters back in the fucking Midwest or something, while SIMULTANEOUSLY listening to an iPod with the bright white headphones and you get fucking mugged. Congrats, YOU’RE A FUCKING DUMBASS.

No, it’s not 1990, when men were men, crackheads would fucking cut you and the robbery rate was about a billion times higher than it is now, but it’s still New York and you were still fucking dumb enough to think that paying $1,200 for a studio in a shitty neighborhood is somehow hipper than moving to fucking Queens.

Anyway, here’s some helpful tips for the next time someone jacks your shit.

1) Pay attention. Granted, you weren’t paying attention to start with or you wouldn’t have gotten mugged, but now that you’ve been hit from behind / had a gun shoved in your face, pay attention.

2) Follow directions. Give the friendly mugger what he wants. Don’t talk back or fight. In all likelihood, you’re a pussy hipster retard, and are, by NYC law, unarmed.

3) You’ve been paying attention right? Remember some simple things in this order: sex, clothing color, clothing type, head wear, and direction of flight.

4) Congratulations! You’ve just been robbed and you’re still alive. What now? Well, don’t go back to your apartment and call the cops thirty minutes later. Don’t call your mom in Kansas and tell her first. CALL THE COPS AS FAST AS POSSIBLE. You’d be amazed at how many people fuck up this simple step. Pay phones still exist, as do 24/7 bogies. Go there, call the cops. (H/T - Dan Rubin)

    Don’t be stupid, pay attention, call the cops, and don’t be a d*ck.

    Best line, because you know there are people that even in a time of need, are nasty to cops.

    George - Damned funny, even for NYC.

    Momster - You’d be surprised at how many people make the mistakes that are listed there.

    RT - If I had a dollar for every time a victim was a d*ck . . .

    Captain - It is brilliant in its way.

    JumpOut - Yeah, it’s kickass.

    Hahaha……most of us out here in LA feel the same way……

    I remember an article that was printed MANY years ago titled ‘Why cops hate you’ that had many of the same points/gripes……things never change it seems…..

    We could probably find a cop from the 1920s who would say some of the same things…..

    I was in Philidelphia a number of years ago and there were these 2 cops - 6ft 6″ tall if they were an inch. Both with massive sidearms. I felt really safe. Mind you, I was not mugging anyone at the time.
