Speaking of el sombreros, let’s soften the blow with this…

A tipster sent along this hilarious Craigslist ad penned by a Lower East Sider named Stan. Apparently, dude wants to rid his collection of 35 iguana sombreros. For free! Repeat, 35 party hats for the pet iguana you never knew you wanted, all for the price of zilch.

Just pardon his all-caps attitude:
