Table Talk!
This ebayer, the person selling this table, is a man. How can you tell? Look closely. Leave a comment if you figure it out. Hint: It ain't the candlesticks.....
Thanks to CL for practically blinding me by sending me this photo....

holy free holy! looks like dinner will be meat (kielbasa, perhaps) and two veg. I'm not that hungry, to be honest!

Kim Stagliano said...

Linguica? Lost my appetite myself. Husshhhh, let's see if anyone else gets it. Took me about a minute. So, his name could be David Goldberg, yes?

People who walk around photographing themselves in the raw should have hard bodies, imho :-)

Kim Stagliano said...

Amen merc mom!

kristen said...

I have to come out of lurking here to comment (in fact, isn't that exactly what the seller seems to be doing in this photo?)

Eh gads.

M. G. Tarquini said...

betcha he noticed and thought it would 'up' the price, so to speak.

Kim Stagliano said...

Kristen - de-luek again and TOUCHE! Or should I say "Tooshay?"

Kim Stagliano said...

MG - is it HARD wood??

kristen said...

Kim,
I also wanted to say I love the blog and will definitely be back...lurking and de-lurking along the way.

I do wish I had found you sooner because I would love to attend the June 7th event. If only I could find a babysitter...

Kim loves to hear from new friends said...

Kristen, are you an autism Mom? Babysitters ARE hard to find. Sigh. I'll be speaking at the Long Islang Autism conference too in October - with the wonderful writer and autism Mom Barbara Fischkin. Maybe you can attend?

Do de-lurk again!

Ahvarahn said...

Ah men; we get a bad reputation of being overly proud of our tools, don't we? And SeƱor Dick here doesn't help matters.

kristen said...

Kim,
My son was diagnosed PDD-NOS, so yes, we are somewhere out there on the spectrum.

Where on Long Island? NYC and Long Island work for me. It's really a question of husband travelling and no sitter for the 7th.

Jaye Wells said...

Priceless!

I was studying the picture really hard trying to figure out if it was the ashtray or extension cord that gave it away. Then my eyes roamed. I wish I had a picture of my face when I saw what was looming in the mirror.

Stephen Parrish said...

As a boy, I'm happy to say I did not find "it" until clued by the comment trail.

It looks unstaged to me.

Freaking hilarious...Mrs. Stalingo you made my day!!!

mirror mirror on the wall said...

Funniest response? Beside the Stalingo reference - good one Dallas! A friend emailed me "I had no idea my husband was selling our table!" I roared.

nakedschmeckie'swife said...

Wait a sec!

My husband didn't tell me he was selling our table?

writtenwyrdd said...

It wouldn't be the naked man reflected in the mirror while taking this photo, would it? (Five seconds with the pic enlarged.) This isn't the first Ebay photo that's come up with a nekked person.

eww.

Wade Rankin said...

Oh, that is soooo wrong in soooo many ways.

Kim Stagliano said...

Wade - yup. Ick city.

Laura said...

Damn! So that's why I'm not getting the big prices on ebay! Must be naked when I take the pictures, and "tastefully" relflected in mirror. Learn something new every day!

Hi Kim, never know what you'll be up to in your blog. Thought you might enjoy this page from snopes.com, the excellent online urban myth buster page. That dining room table picture has been making the email forward rounds for a couple of years. The teapot picture on this snopes page is another famous one.

What I wonder is why is it always men in these pictures? Must be that overcompensation thing.

kathie said...

OMG, Kim, this is hilarious. Just what I needed this morning!

Kim averts her eyes said...

I gather its an "oldie but goodie" that's been around - but I did get a kick out of it too. The "ew" factor is too funny.

Lisa R. said...

So that's what they mean by "show, don't tell."

Kawasaki Kimmie said...

He's NAKIE!!! And in the mirror LOL

I received this photo from a girlfriend as I wad getting ready to put a china cabinet on Craigslist. I was rolling on th floor! How funny I thought and did my own version and sent the pic MSG to my girlfriend. I happened to share it with a friend ( breast cancer survivor) at work and was overheard and ratted on. I was fired for inappropriate behavior for sending a barely visable photo of my breast ONLY. No genitalia. No face. I sent a nude and sexually explicit photo of my self and lost a 22 year career (17 ) with that particular company because evidently some people have no sense of humor, think a female breast is a sexual appendage. Topfree rights. Naturist rights. Privacy rights. Right or wrong...Be careful what you post.
