Craigslist Bombs – Outrageous Personal Ads Including 27 Shades of Grey is a short book of about 38 traditional pages. It contains funny personal ads that I created and placed on Craigslist. The ads range from the downright desperate to the somewhat erotic. All of the ads share one thing; they are hopelessly misguided and quite funny.
My most successful posting was titled 27 Shades of Grey. In it I compare myself to Christian Grey. Unfortunately, I don’t do very well. This parody of the 50 Shades series received more replies than any of my outrageous posts. 27 Shades of Grey is joined by 12 other fun personal-ad experiments.

As an experienced author I try to deliver a well-edited piece that is fun and easy to read. In this book I provide background about the ad, show you the text and photo that I used, and then tell you about the responses that I received. There are 11 advertisements total and each has its own unique story. I also included 2 bonus chapters, one is an excerpt from Forum Rejects, a complementary book I wrote, and another alludes to a future project of mine.
About Me: My name is Tom Nardone, I’ve a semi-pro humorist. During the day I run a successful Internet company called PriveCo (we own and operate Vibrators.com, ShopInPrivate.com, and Bachelorette.com), but at night I like to goof around, build things, and write funny stuff.
I’ve written 7 books, three were published traditionally and were nationwide best sellers, the others are available only digitally. I’ve appeared on a number of TV shows for my creativity, pranks, and outrageous pumpkin carving. My crowning achievement was when I appeared on Conan O’Brien. Conan called me “A Sick Man, A Great Man, But A Sick Man”. I also pranked Jimmy Kimmel on one of my appearances on the Regis and Kelley show. Kimmel wasn’t as impressed with me. He declared “You should not be allowed near children.” I’m proud of that.
Why Buy This Book: I think it is worth it. I did not rush this project. I crafted the humor over 7 or 8 years. It isn’t a collection of random thoughts, it is a well-selected list of stories and jokes. I am proud of the work and think that you would enjoy it. I offer it for a very reasonable price. I hope you will share it with friends.
