Ellen DeGeneres has just started a new segment on her show where she picks items from the "free" section of craigslist and talks about them on the show.
Today's item was a bar and two stools -- the owner said it needed refinishing, and she suggested it could be done with carpeting. Ellen thought it was funny that the person listing it was suggesting how it could be fixed up. She said she had the same idea for a jacket and showed a photo of herself wearing a jacket made out of carpeting.
Then she said she'd had two "cutlets" made out of carpeting for her bra..."just a little bit of padding" -- if you need more padding you can use plush or shag, she suggested.
Send in your funny craigslist freebies, she says. So America, go for it!
