Extra Extra: Puddle of Mudd Drumms on Craigslistt

It’s like “The Gift of the Magi” retold for the cutout-bin set. A Craigslist post by “the parents of Wes Scantlin of Puddle of Mudd” capitalizes on star power in an attempt to unload an off-brand starter drum set. Meanwhile, a tough-love dad is on a mission to sell the “almost new” Ludwig kit his daughter saved up to buy two years ago but failed to pound on often enough. For $900, you can buy both and assemble a drum set of staggering karma-shriveling power — you will have helped Scantlin’s parents profit from their son’s D-list name, and the little drummer girl will hate you forever.
