An Unusual Request: Housing for a Dinosaur?

March 30, 2012 | Comments Off on An Unusual Request: Housing for a Dinosaur?

A Canadian man who is unable to buy a home in the pricey housing market of Vancouver, British Columbia, has another idea for attaining home ownership, but it involves dressing up as a dinosaur.

The man recently posted an unusual offer over Craigslist, targeting his message to the rich who may have some spare homes lying around or paid-off rental properties — or those who’ve just always wanted a personal dinosaur. The man writes in a Craigslist ad: “In exchange for one of your properties, I will be your personal dinosaur for one year. I will be at your beck and call, 24 hours a day, wearing a dinosaur costume. The type of dinosaur is negotiable.” 

He also offers to babysit children, scare the mailman, wash dishes, and entertain guests. “This is the only way you will ever have your pet dinosaur, and the only way I will ever be able to acquire a house in Vancouver,” he writes.
