The importance of being earnest in room-for-rent ads on Craigslist

Spotted on Craigslist:

$750 Large Room East Village (East Village)

Spacious Room — fit for Oscar Wilde.

Sleigh bed, new mattress.

$750. Six months minimum, first/last mos. to move in.

Wilde's real-life home in London sounds a little roomier than this.

The playwright Oscar Wilde spent two years in Reading Gaol (jail) in London after being convicted of sodomy, maybe that's what they mean!

Congrats, Gojira ... beat me to it!

This room and Wilde's former home are probably more spacious than this offering in South London... for £700

So, it's a good room to die in? "My wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death. One or other of us has to go."

The only caveat is you need not be there when the room is being used by your roommate to conduct their Dominatrix work.True story, happened to a friend.
