FPSF and Craigslist, Part 2: Free Pass for Boob Flash
Call it a case of someone taking capitalism (or bad taste) to the extreme, it's just surprising something like this hasn't happened sooner. Or maybe it has, but thank God the Internet is around to preserve everything in amber.
Earlier this week but after we told you about the bull market for Free Press Summer Fest passes on Craigslist, someone claiming to be a 22-year-old Texas A&M student exponentially upped the ante. On the same part of the Houston message board, this upstanding College Station citizen posted an ad offering one of two wristbands, which he allegedly won from a local radio station, to "one and only one lady" (age 18 and up) willing to flash her boobs to him and his friend at a location of her choosing near the festival's main entrance around 11 a.m. this Saturday.
Ew. Ew. One more time, ew.
But in his defense (somewhat), even Aggies can grasp how skeevy that sounds.
"Once you earn it, it's yours to keep; you're not obligated to hang out with us for the festival or ever talk to us again," he said.
The flash, he added, "would need to last more than one second but fewer than three."
Not surprisingly, the ad had vanished by Wednesday afternoon. But here's the full text, just to prove it existed in the first place:

As of about 4 p.m. Wednesday, FSPF passes were still available on the festival's Web site. No nudity required.
