Help Wanted: A-Team
— Ace

Funny little prank about attempting to recruit four tough fugitive mercenaries with hearts of gold:

Provoking funny responses, including this one:

Jeff G.? Surely... not... our Jeff G.?

Thanks to Qu'ran Pundit.

Update: This one is cluelessly funny:

A joke? Heaven forfend. What on earth would make you think that trying to re-unite the cast of a 1980's action series was a joke?

It's on Craigslist, baby. That's the gold standard for authentic mercenary-recruitments.

1 The A Team rocks!!!

That was hilarious. The responses are fantastic.

I like the one where the responder is questioning Amy's friendship since she doesn't want anyone to die.

2 Yes, that was a good one.

Didn't know you were a big fan of the A-Team, Chickpea.

3 When I was a kid I had--what I thought to be--an A-Team coloring book. In retrospect I realize it was probably an unlicensed knock-off. The A-Group, or whatever they called themselves, used their skill with small arms and explosives to.. I don't know, help kids stay in school or drink their milk or something. In the final scene the counterfeit George Peppard summed up their victory not with the trademarked "I love it when a plan comes together!", but with a non-sequiturian "Piece of Cake!". I dropped my crayons in horror, having made it nearly to the end of the book enjoying what at that moment I realized was a fraud.

I've never been the same since.

4 Well, I'm all for this. Jeff Gannon would totally rock as team leader. And his Gay Cock of Lies would add an exciting new element to a premise that's, let's face it, been kind of dragging for the last couple decades.

5 I'm sure at least some of you have seen this, but it's apropos:
