Man Seeks Sex Through Craigslist, Finds Carjackers Instead

As we all know, Craigslist can be a source of classic cars, parts and memorabilia. Completely unbeknownst to anyone at Jalopnik, it can also be used to solicit sex. A 23-year-old Brentwood man responded to an ad offering sex at what we assume was an attractive rate. But instead of "hittin that," a pair of men hit him in the head with a shotgun they were carrying. The man escaped with his life, but the criminals escaped with his money and GMC Sierra truck.

Let this be a lesson to those among you in the midst of a dry spell: a sporting woman is fun for a moment, but with the inherent risks wouldn't you be better off with the less temporal satisfaction that comes from a vegetable oil-powered Ford Econoline van? [San Jose Mercury News via News.com]
