Oh yeah, I just have one of those sitting out in my garage...

Here in town we have a radio show in the mornings called Tradio. People can call in and let others know about items they have for sale. They can also call in and say they are looking to buy this or that or the other.

My car radio is often tuned into this station since some of my favorite talk radio shows are on it, so sometimes when I take the kids to school in the morning I find myself listening to Tradio. And I actually get a kick out of it because I can't believe the random items people are trying to sell. I mean, these are things I would never think to actually sell, but hey...if you can make a buck off of it and don't need it anymore, I'm all for it.

Even stranger though, are the things people are hoping to buy. I mean, you hear normal things like baby cribs and toys and cars and stuff. But today I heard the one that must take the cake of all cakes.

A woman called in and was looking for a pair of live albino peacocks.

I guess anything's worth a try...after all, someone might have some.
