Craigslist Ad Of The Day: Lionel Richie

I'm glad he doesn't want the real one, because I'd have to kick his ass. The real one is mine. Someone has it somewhere. Maybe Lionel himself. And I want it. Lionel, if you're reading this, how much do you want for it? Or maybe, since you're loaded and I'm not, you'll just give it to me? Think about it and call me.

Ceramic bald Lionel Richie bust wanted

Date: 2010-02-01, 9:40AM CST

I am looking for a replica of the bust made in the Lionel Richie "Hello" video.

However I'd like it to be bald as I intend to recreate that lovable afromullet with some sort of cream cheese dip at parties. Not that I have many parties, but if I had this, I might start.

I'd like it to be maybe about a foot tall.

It really has to look like that bust (which oddly enough doesn't look like Lionel Richie at all) or it won't be worth it. Hopefully it can be the same orangish-brown matte finish that is in the video but I understand making it safe for a cheesy-afro might lead to some compromises.

Please email me with a bid including a breakdown the cost of supplies and labor. I can also exchange for computer repair (mac/pc, virus/malware repair, etc) or maybe a 12" G4 iBook,

Thank you to Curtis for informing me that terracotta would not be a good choice for a food-safe sculpture.

Take care.


  1. I think dipping a potato chip or a carrot stick into Lionel Richie's cream cheese hair would make me lose my appetite. :-)

  2. Hello?
    Is it dip you're looking for?

  3. ha ha ha ha ha! :D

    I long to see the cream cheese in your hair
    And tell you time and time again how much I care.

  4. Nice.

    I can imagine the dip falling off his gourd in sad, wet plops.

  5. He's commissioning this as his reason to start having parties? Just when I think you've brought us the worst sad-ass losers on Craigslist, there is someone weirder (although poo and spoo party may still have a lock on that).

    Now everytime I hear that song I will think of Cary's line...Is it dip you're looking for? That is going to make me laugh forever.
