What do you get the person who has everything? How do you plan on memorializing the birth of your firstborn? Where might you find a gift that’s gigantic, ludicrous, and also free? Playwrights Horizons in New York City has got you covered, offering up a giant gold baby for the great price of not a single cent.
Posted to Craig’s List is an ad for a 14 1/2 foot gold baby statue made of foam. But don’t think you and your roommate could just shoulder it back to your 2-bedroom. It’s 325 pounds of foam.
The ad reads:
Giving away a large gold-painted foam statue, a legendary prop from the production of ‘Mankind’ at Playwrights Horizons. Perhaps you may find use for the foam materials, or maybe you just want a glorious infant totem in your home! Posting to give away for free before we ship to recycle on 2/5.
Want a piece of theater history and actually have the room to keep this? Just REALLY love foam and could make use of 325 lbs of it? Well, today is your lucky day. Call now before some baby-worshiping cult on a budget beats you to the punch.
