The Daily Dot alerts the world to a new Craigslist trend: ads in New Jersey, Buffalo, and Texas selling positive pregnancy tests for $25–40. Don’t worry, it’s a no-questions-asked exchange. The sellers don’t care what the tests are being used for, whether it’s getting your boyfriend to pop the question, playing a fun prank on Mom and Dad, entrapment, a kidnapping plot, what have you. Here is one Dallas-based ad seeking a test for $40, for use in some elaborate revenge plot. We’re looking forward to the ensuing Lifetime movie plot that emerges from that one.
