What are friends for?
If you’re a guy, that friendship sometimes includes pranks. You know, like ordering a pizza to a friend’s house or putting his house up for sale.
The latter happened to a man in Erie, Colorado.

Brian Lusk is a Broncos fan, and according to the Denver Post, Lusk is friends with a Steelers fan. The Broncos beat Pittsburgh in the playoffs and there was a good amount of ribbing.
Lusk’s friend looked for payback.
“When they played in the playoffs, I rode him hard for a few days,” Lusk told the Post. “He texted me back and said he was going to get me.”
The friend did so by placing an advertisement in three newspapers with a photo of Lusk’s house.
Here’s what the ad said:
2100 sq ft 3BR 2BA
Home in Erie FSBO.
Leaving Her with
Nothing. Will Sell
Home for 2 Tickets to
the Superbowl with
Air Fare & Lodging.
Must Act Fast!
“I answered a phone call on Friday morning about my house being for sale,” Lusk said. “She read off the ad. It all started clicking for me. I figured out who was doing it.”
The Post reported that the house is not on the market and that Lusk and his wife are happily married.
Still, I wonder what she thinks of her husband’s pal.
