    Craigslist can be whatever you want it to be. You can use it to find a flat, secure a new job, sell your car…and now, it seems, search for the father of your unborn child after a brief encounter at a rock concert.

    As observed by Fuse, an American woman has turned to the online classifieds site [explicit language used] to track down a man who knocked her up at a Megadeth & Motörhead concert in Chicago in February. The woman in question describes herself as: “Blue hair, silver tube top, fishnets, Knee high black biker boots,” whilst the dude is sporting a similar look: “Red mohawk, black pentagram gauges, viper piercings.”

    The ad takes things a step further to try and jog the man’s memory, and describes the encounter in a little more, erm, detail…

    In a sad matter-of-fact end to the message, the woman says: “Anyway I’m pregnant. It’s yours. Contact me if you want to be part of your child’s life.”

    Anyway…if you think you can help with the search, or to read the original post in all its glory, click here.
