A 300-pound Romney sign has found its way into the hands of 27- year old Republican Don McDowell and his Democratic brother.

Now how exactly did these gentlemen from Iowa become the owners of a steel shaped Iowa campaign sign with the infamous motto "Believe in Amercia"? I mean "America"!

Well, the landlord of former presidential candidate campaign office decided to post it on Craigslist for a whopping price of 'pick it up with your truck, and it's free'.  So, McDowell and his brother carried the 5 by 8 foot, 300-pound Romney sign and drove off.

McDowell is apparently a collector of political memorabilia. He told the Examiner that he had been going to political events since about the time he could walk, "I've got signs, buttons and things from the caucuses and the straw poll."

Texas recycling companies are offering 50 cents for every pound of steel scrap metal but can you really put a price on a 300-pound Romney sign? According to the land lord of Romney's once-upon-a-time campaign office in Des Moines, you really can't.

Do you think a 300-pound Romney sign is the weirdest thing you could purchase on Craiglist? I bet we could find weirder:

How about "THE Greatest college/single guy furniture ever!!!"? What's the price you ask?: "All I ask in return is, love it, use it, and...in honor of those years of college life I shared with it...a twelve pack of Newcastle (my favorite beer during my college years). You give me a taste of my long gone days, and I will give you the greatest furniture set ever."

Looking to make a buck, literally? One dollar will be given to a woman who will sit in a bath tub full of noodles, wearing a one piece bathing suit.

And if you're looking for a kitten, look no further! A ferocious attack kitten is available for adoption to any home willing to accept him. "This destructive kitty has been trained as a proud warrior and will fiercely defend your house, even against you. Well-trained since 10-weeks of age to attack anything in his presence, he will protect your family from evil things including the following: insects, other trained attack kittens, babies, toilet paper, anything under a blanket ,unwanted house guests, paper bags, floor rugs, Chuck Norris, Feet" "

Buying a 300-pound Romney sign doesn't seem that weird now, does it?
