Woman puts husband up for sale on Craigslist … a Logan, Utah woman posted an ad on Craigslist this week offering her 22-year-old husband up on the site’s “Free Stuff” section. Alyse Bradley’s ad reads, “Easy to maintain, just feed and water every 3-5 hours. He enjoys eating and playing video games all day.” According to the Salt Lake City Tribune, her husband, Kyle, who recently returned from Afghanistan with a back injury, said gaming is one way he can keep in touch with his military friends. Once he got the new Modern Warfare 3 game which came out on November 8th, he was hooked. On a particularly long gaming day, Alyse said, “I didn’t see him much at all. So one day I told him, ‘I am going to post you on Craigslist, you know.’ My mother-in-law said, ‘Do it!’” Some have taken her very seriously and others have played along and even offered to replace Kyle but she says it was just a joke. Kyle said, “I love my wife. She supported me when I got the game. It’s just funny.”
Jenny McCarthy is an internet dater … it appears Jim Carrey’s ex is looking for love and has taken to the keyboard to find it. According to RadarOnline.com, McCarthy has complained that she can’t find a suitable boyfriend so she is hoping that Match.com can help her out. She admits that she does not reveal personal data on the site and that her profile wouldn’t be easily found. McCarthy said, “I mean, I don’t know. It’s so hard out here. The guys are like chicks out here. There’s no real guy guys, so maybe importing from somewhere will be smart. Anyone not from L.A. I think.”
