(PCM) Sadly, Craigslist has deleted the hilarious posting from a group of roommates in Spokane, Washington who were in search of a generic father figure type to assist with their upcoming Father’s Day barbecue. The roommates figured that since they could not have their own father’s around for Father’s Day, their next best option would be hiring one, with payment being in the form of food and beer, to step in and fill that fatherly role.
Not really sure why Craigslist decided to delete the post, as we don’t really see how it would be offensive or violate any terms, but nevertheless it has been taken down, but not before someone took the time to transcribe the posting in all it’s hilarious glory. You can read it below:
While most of us know how to operate a grill, none of us are prepared to fill the role of ‘BBQ Dad.'”The party will take place June 17th from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. What does a “BBQ Dad” do, exactly? Duties include:
Grilling hamburgers and hot dogs (whilst drinking beer, of course)
Bringing your own grill (subject to change, but meat will be provided by party planners)
Referring to attendees as Big Guy, Chief, Sport, Champ, etc.
Talk about dad things like lawnmowers, building your own deck, Jimmy Buffet, etc.
The perfect candidate will meet the following qualifications:
A minimum of 18 years experience as a father
A minimum of 10 years grilling experience
An appreciation of cold beer on a hot summer day
*Bonus points if your name is Bill, Randy or Dave.
We definitely give these guys points for creativity and sources claim that prior to the posting being removed the roommates did receive several responses from “fill-in” dad’s who thought that they might be able to fit the bill. The roommates said they would be willing to hire as many as three stand-in dads for the upcoming party, but they are holding out hope for their first choice of actor Bill Murray! We have to wonder how the roommates actual dad’s feel about all this!
