    Hey guys,

    Have you ever visited the Best of Craigslist? It's a collection of usually laugh-out-loud or really fascinating, truly unique posts that have been found across Craigslist's broad network.

    I'd like to open the floor for the Best of HubPages in this thread. Please share Hubs published by people other than yourself that you've found really, really cool - they either made you laugh, they made your jaw drop, or they made you say "wow" (in a good way).

    I'll start it off with one of my favorite Hubs:
    Pig-Out! The 25,000 Calorie Sunday Dinners At The Compare's by Hal Licino

    Share away!

    Great idea Jason, there are a lot of great hubs and hubbers. I came across this one the other day when hub hopping and think it's well worth a read.

    Great idea. Can I suggest two? Please don't hate on me. smile
    Funny and true:

    Make Money Today-- all for ONLY $39.95 US

    A great short story, that turned into a novel, by dohn121. If you have not read his Revenge series you will want to check it out. Dohn is a very talented writer.I spent one whole day reading every part, except for one, to find out what happens next. Dohn is great at ending each part with a cliffhanger leaving you wanting more and more.

    Revenge, Inc. Part 1

    I ran across this hubber earlier today. She makes her hubs come alive by including videos of herself doing what she writes about. Cooking. Almost 100 hubs for a 2-month-old hubber and you can actually view how she cooks her recipes. A definite "wow" by my standards.

    I was looking at my hub bookmarks which I use infrequently and this deserves a nod.

    The little extras like suggested by this hub by green Lotus really make a hub stand out as unique and more like a mini web site.

    Darksides inclusion into the hubcontest this week has a similar impressive unifying visual aesthetic..which make sit quite unhublike

    These little things are memorable

    The hub on Start Smoking created a little bit of controversy and also spawned a forum thread of its own.

    Great idea, Jason - hope that you didn't suffer too much Hub overload whilst reading the contest Hubs! smile

    I always liked this one from Aya Katz - a wonderful, well-written Hub:

      When we wed Justine, do you mind if I wear white even though I am not entitled to?

    And Sufidreamer - yes, plenty to read, but these are awesome in a different way from the Hubs that participated in the contest. smile

    Pretty much anything he writes is worth reading

    Always funny, but their is more value than just humor in most of his writing

    ..I seem to remember similar advice given in The Elements of Style that was nowhere near as fun to read
