Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Roommate hunters on Craigslist must have thought they lucked out when they first spotted a September 24 posting about a shared space on Capitol Hill that seemed quite the steal: "$200 with some requirements," reads the post’s title. Unfortunately, those “requirements” are a tad, um, particular.

"Looking for stripper to split a small apartment with me. No smoking. No television," reads the terse posting in full.

How crazy is that! No television? Who ever heard of a shared apartment with no television! Still, $200 is pretty cheap. I’m off to put on my tear-away pants and banana hammock and submit an application. -- Joel Warner

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
