Craig’s List Laughs

If you don’t know what Craig’s List is, it is an online trading post of sorts, with classified ads for jobs, items for sale, events and many other things.  They have sections for different cities all over.  I like to call it “the place where you can find all of the things you never knew you needed.”  Well, I am a Craig’s List Junkie, and I often find posts that amuse me.  I found one today that I could not pass up sharing, even though the listing could be taken down at some point, so the link below might end up going nowhere.  This cracked me up:

All right, the link finally was removed.  So sad…but for those of you who missed it, it was an ad for selling an “Anne Klein Crystal Embezzled Pink Watch.” 

Can anyone tell me what’s wrong with this ad?  Or perhaps there is a definition that I am not aware of for the word in question?

    Let’s see now, how would you embezzle a watch? Too funny!

    Maybe they embezzled the crystal the watch is made with! LOL!

    Yeah, that’s like the commercial I saw yesterday for one of those adjustible beds. It had a list of all the ailments the bed would supposedly help with. On the list were “hiatus hernia” and “acid reflex.” There may have been more, but the list wasn’t up there long enough to read them all. You’d think they’d proof a national ad.

    If I were to risk jail time for embezzeling something, it’d have to be for something nicer than an Anne Klein watch–and a pink one at that.

    Oh, btw, the round metal thing just outside the face of the watch is called a “bezzle.” Perhaps the author meant to say, embedded in the bezzle or something to that effect.
