Small ads from the UK

A new funny link has been added to the ad links as I was grooming the collection today (Big thanks to all of you who have reported duds, muchos gracias.) It's a collection of UK small space ads or classifieds if you prefer. Yes it's a photoshop job, but they are dang funny some of them - though I seem to recall that these images were served on some other type of site a while back. Might even have been a flash site perhaps. Does anyone else recognise these gags?

Looks like The Framley Examiner, a British local newspaper. Seems they're also looking for a web designer.

Check their archives for more

Hmm... I found a lot of them here ( But that is probaly not the original either

However, I also stumbled across a few other ones that seem more like real classifieds.

Hey Blondino I haven't seen you for ages. :)

I dunno what classifieds to believe anymore. I do want to put some really weird ones in my local paper just to see if anyone notices now tho.. ;)

Hi, these two ads you feature here were joke ads placed by British comedian Jimmy Carr. This I know because I watched his DVD last night and he has a whole section where he reads out spoof classifieds - actually it's the best part of his act. Some of the others were truly hilarious, so good I've completely forgotten them, as I do all the best jokes.

Anyway, if you like these, check out his dvd.

This Jimmy Carr? Ah, I'll have to pick that up, always like to get acquainted with new (to me) comedians. Ta!
