Warrior Grandma Wields A Haunted Sword

haunted sword

Craigslist rarely disappoints. If you don’t find the job, apartment, or furniture you’re looking for, you might stumble across a ridiculous listing to make it all better – like this one for a sword that could be cursed. This gem was posted on Craigslist in Austin, Texas, and it’s hilarious even if it’s a prank:

This sword is from the 1700s. I got it at an antique store in my memaw’s home town back in 1984. The person who sold it to me told me to be careful because there is a 90+% chance that it is cursed. Since it’s been in my house my life has descended into pure chaos. My knitting group came over and they all said they could feel a strange energy in my sword room (I have a collection of over 100 swords. This is my only haunted sword). Since i got this sword, about 3 times a week a crucifix will fall off of my wall for no reason. I am 76 years old. I cannot have this cursed item in my house anymore. Please take it off my hands!!

Will you rise to the challenge and help this 76-year-old woman? And if you do, will you please take pictures of her sword room? Because awesome.
