We all know that Vancouver is this country’s most expensive city, but the question is, what would you do to afford to live there?

One Vancouverite is going to gigantic lengths to live in the city by the sea and has put out a bit of an unusual ad to landlords and multiple property owners:

“In exchange for one of your properties, I will be your personal dinosaur for one year. I will be at your beck and call, 24 hours a day, wearing a dinosaur costume. The type of dinosaur is negotiable. I can babysit your children (references upon request), scare the mailman, wash dishes, entertain and impress your guests, and much more. (No sex stuff though, sorry.) I will make realistic dinosaur sounds, eat what the particular dinosaur eats and maybe even sit on a fake dinosaur egg, if you are so inclined. I am well educated, fluent in English and French (as well as dinosaur), can play several musical instruments and have no criminal record or outstanding warrants.”

Like I said, gigantic.

If I were to entertain this offer, I’d like to know what the dinosaur costume looks like. Because a velociraptor or T-rex would be cool, a brontosaurus would not be. I’d be down with a triceratops costume too.

Anyway, if you think you might be interested in helping this Barney in training out, you can check out the rest of the ad on Craigslist.
