Salt Lake City, UT
"Easy to maintain, just feed and water every 3-5 hours. He enjoys eating and playing video games all day" read the ad on Craigslist under "Free Stuff."
Alyse Bradley of Utah posted the ad as a joke, fed up with her video gamer husband, 22-year-old Kyle. She offered Kyle to the highest bidder after he became obsessed with the game "Modern Warfare 3."
Kyle, a veteran who served in Afghanistan, said that gaming was one way in which he stays connected to his military friends. But after 48 straight hours of gaming, Alyse had enough.
Within hours of the ad being posted, responses poured in. Some were concerned for the couple, some were serious offers and others not so serious (offering a blue bag of Skittles).
Some men offered their replacement services claiming to be housebroken, trained and willing to trade places with Kyle.
Kyle successful finished "Modern Warfare" after a few days and found the ad amusing. Kyle says he loves his wife and thought the whole thing was just funny.
