It’s akin to a restaurant announcing over its public address system that a car with a certain license plate number is blocking in another vehicle — except those announcements don’t come with original hand-drawn sketches of the car.
This one does. It is by a woman who became pregnant without intending to. She has posted a one-of-a-kind ad on Craigslist, urging the father of her unborn child to do the honorable thing.
“Her listing keeps it brief,” Metro notes, “much like the encounter itself by all accounts.”
The ad’s headline is pretty straightforward: “We hooked up. It broke. Baby on the way.”
The woman, who identifies herself as “w4m” and her location as the “East Village” neighborhood of New York City, includes a self-portrait, with the caveat, “I’m no police sketch artist, but I think the resemblance is there.”
The illustration also bears a passing resemblance to a well-known optical illusion:
Since the drawing of the mother-to-be is a headshot only, she adds a description of some of her other physical attributes — “I am Mexican-American. 5’4″, 100 lbs when we screwed” — as well as a few of the baby’s daddy: “You told me you wore a business entrepeneur [sic]. You are Middle Eastern. Tallish. Had about a 6 and a half inch d*ck. We had sex 3 times.”
Finally, there is an appeal, both to him — “If you want to be in the child’s life it will be born soon. I hope you will” — and to anyone who might know his identity: “If anybody from the village area recognized this man let him no [sic] he has baby son coming [sic].”
