Weirder things have been sought after on Craigslist. I’d elaborate, but the case hasn’t gone to trial yet. Spokane Washington’s Craigslist recently hosted a plaintive plea for a “generic father figure” for a BBQ. Is the current dad not with us anymore? Is he a grumpy asshole who doesn’t like BBQs? Let’s find out!
It’s actually a group of college roommates in Spokane who don’t have any parents in the area, so they advertised for “BBQ Dad.” It’s nice to see guys opening up about their emotions. They need someone to mentor them at their end of the school year party… and also to work the grill. From KHQ:
“BBQ Dad” has to handle certain tasks and must possess certain qualifications. The ad has since been taken down, but there’s a screenshot from Twitter:

That’s a big job. Is “BBQ Dad” getting paid in anything besides beer? These are college dudes, so they’ll probably have strippers at some point. That could be some compensation. I honestly hope they get a legit Dad and not some sort of dad impersonator with a grill fetish.
