A Utah man was left highly bemused after an innocent craigslist posting advertising a area picnic for local pensioners, under the heading "Picnic Today For Seniors - All Invited - Will Be Hot - Please Come In Shorts" was swamped with a request from an English man, who may have forgotten to take his medication.
Daniel Cun, 32, a charity worker, told anyone who was interested "I received a very odd e-mail claiming that this odd little man wanted to "come in his shorts" especially if there were going to be hot women over the age of 72. He said he would definitely "come in his shorts" - he sent me over 200 e-mails, saying the same thing over and over again. In the end I told him of course he could, wearing whatever he desired, but he did not respond. I can only assume that he had been drinking or more likely, was a mental patient who had somehow managed to gain access to a computer!"
Daniel though would like to encourage more contact from anyone who would like to help out with his charitable and voluntary and of course amateur attempts of bringing a little happiness into the lifes of the elderly.
"If anyone else would like to send me an e-mail, then please, just toss one off."
