Woman selling her game addicted husband on Craigslist

In news that's perfect for such a slow pre-holiday day, more hilarious things have happened on Craigslist! This time, a frustrated woman is selling her Modern Warfare 3-obsessed husband on Craigslist. If you promise to take care of him, you could even score a freebie!

"I am selling my 22 year old husband," writes the wife. "He enjoys eating and playing video games all day. Easy to maintain, just feed and water every 3-5 hours. You must have Internet and space for gaming. Got tired of waiting so free to good home. If acceptable replacement is offered will trade." 

The ad has been traced back to 21-year-old Alyse Baddley, who had previously joked to her mother that she'd sell the man on Craigslist if he didn't stop playing Call of Duty. The product for sale, Kyle Baddley, was recently discharged from the military after suffering a back injury in Afghanistan. Although Alyse wasn't being too serious, some readers took it to heart and even offered marital counseling for the pair. 

Kyle kind of looks like that guy who plays the non-derpy one in those Twilight films. Alyse could make a fortune off that one feature alone.
