From Portland Craigslist:

$$$$ LITTLE PEOPLE , midgets, dwarf, dwarves needed for PARTY $$$$

We’re throwing a huge house party, and want to hire some little people
to be at the party to serve drinks, provide hospitality, and perhaps
dress up like cowboys and indians and chase eachother around.

This would be a one-time event, last 2-4 hours, and compensation would
be $50 per person, per hour. We’re hoping to have 2-5 participants.

Compensation: $50/hour for 2-4 hours

Allllll righty, then….

(Did anyone else see MiniKiss and Tiny Kiss on Daily Show last night? There’s no video up yet, but it’s very much worth watching if you can track it down.)

    Wow. They must have taken it down (I’m sure craigslist would find it in poor taste) because I’m not finding it there. $50 an hour isn’t nearly enought to pay for that kind of discrimination and humiliation!

    MiniKiss played at a party where my best friend works. I mean, it was an office party. And they flew MiniKiss in to Chicago. Which seems somehow both extravagant and cheap at the same time.

  6. That’s some nuttiness… but then again, Craigs List is always good for a laugh.

    I once answered an ad like this; “midgets wanted with sense of humor” and was told that at almost 4’11” I was too tall. I then gave the guy on the phone a raft of it for using the un-PC “midget” rather than “little person”. I have, however, found seasonal employment as both a leprechaun and a Santa’s helper. But I find the hiring of the super short just for decorative or sensational purposes kinda gross. Where do you draw the line?
