Dan Brill, a renter in New York City, frustrated by the get-it-now misleading hyperbole that accompanied many of the Craigslist ads he had to sort through while looking for a new apartment, launched a Tumblr site that reimagines brokerbabble in a bodega context.

“It’s kind of entertaining looking at those ads,” Brill, an advertising copywriter by trade, told Business Insider. “It’s this weird brand of absurdist humor. It’s amazing what the brokers come up with.”

How would New York City rental brokers hawk Kleenex or Oreos? The Broker Bodega has some ideas.
