Last week I spoke to Brian O’Connell from Today with Pat Kenny for a slot he was doing on classified advertising – we’ve been approached to include all sorts of things.

Since I spoke to Brian, we have been getting almost daily phone calls from a man in Nigeria who wants to know if we have received his letter yet. He has posted us a letter – and €10 – advertising his daughter. For marriage.

Previously, we had a Nigerian lady who wished to advertise herself for marriage, and listed her interests as “cooking, cleaning, and oral sex.”

We’ve also had a man trying to advertise his night-time sauna. Priests half-price. And he couldn’t understand why we wouldn’t take his money.

Here‘s the piece.
