Dave’s Gone By Pun #60: CRAIGSLIST

While surfing through Craigslist, a rare book collector comes across a signed first edition of a classic. He calls the seller and says, “Look, I’ve gotta have the book, but the price is high, and I’m short on cash. Would you be willing to barter?”

“Depends,” says the seller. “What can you trade?”

Immediately, the collector grabs three pop-culture items from his stash. He tells the seller, “Here are three options. I’ve got an early Johnny Cash album, on Sun Records, signed and dated by Johnny and June Carter.”

“Not bad,” says the seller. “What else?”

“I’ve also got a handwritten one-act play by Vaclav Havel. He wrote it in prison years before he became president of Czechoslovakia.”

“Very tempting,” says the seller. “Tell me about number three.”

“Third is a rare photograph of Hugh Hefner cutting the ribbon on the first Playboy Club. He’s surrounded by beautiful hostesses, many of whom ended up living with him at the mansion.”

“Wow,” says the seller. “All three are impressive. The hard part is picking which one to trade for the book.”

The collector says, “I know, but you’ve gotta choose one. So will it be Cash, Czech, or Bunny Hoarder?”
