Weird-Ass Craigslist Posting, Part 22: "Secrets of the Orient"

"Young, gay, Asian waiters to help out on an over-the-top gay, costume party."



Oh, hell. You've got to be kidding me. Another weird, racist gem posted to Craigslist. This one comes from the Portland area, where a guy named John recently put the call out for "2 young, gay, Asian waiters" to help out with his upcoming Asian-themed gay soiree, "The Secrets of the Orient: The Year of the Snake." Yeah. John promises "it will be awesome!" I have a strong feeling it will not be awesome:

Young, gay, asian waiter wanted (PDX)

My name is John and I'm looking for 2 young, gay, Asian waiters to help out on an over-the-top gay, costume party. The theme is "The Secrets of the Orient-The Year of the Snake". The event will be on Saturday night, the 28th of September in NE PDX. It will be awesome!

Location: PDX

Compensation: 75$ for the night (min 7pm to midnight) plus tips
Come on, John -- you couldn't find two Asian friends to be the exotic human props at your Year of the Snake shindig? Oh yeah, did I mention it's going to be a costume party? I don't even want to think about the "awesome" racist stuff they'll be dressed up in at John's house. Secrets of the Orient, my ass. (Thanks, Simon.)
