If a stranger offered nearly $200 just for you to sit in a tub, you might think he was a pervert. A Peeping Tom. A creep who’d recreate the ending of Psycho faster than you could ask why on earth the tub has ramen noodles in it. But judging by a recent ad on Craigslist, it would seem there’s actually a totally legitimate, totally non-murdery reason someone would make such a request. Like, say, wanting his dinner to taste like “woman.”
A few days ago, a Craigslist posting surfaced in New York offering (under “talent gigs,” no less) $175 for a woman to sit in a bath full of ramen noodles wearing nothing but a bathing suit. The lucky gal would pick up the keys at another location, proceed to the poster’s home, and enjoy the next 30 minutes alone in sweet, salted, slippery bliss. She wouldn’t even have to taste good, per se. As the ad notes, the poster would season the sauce himself prior to dinner.
Assuming no one was killed in the end, this actually doesn’t sound like too bad a gig — $200 for 30 minutes worth of work. It might be worth noting though that similar ads have popped up before back in February this year and again in 2009, which tells you a lot about the job security. Eeek.
