Craig’s List Founder Undergoes Surgery. FBLA Takes Out An Ad.

craigandgrace.jpgAt the mediabistro.com big-ol’ blogger party this weekend, Craig’s List founder Craig Newmark told us he was scheduled to undergo a quick outpatient surgery to remove his gallbladder today.

While docs have him open and under, they’re also planning to remove a bit of his liver which they’ll use in a genetics study of patients with high cholesterol. Before we could open our big, fat mouths, he cautioned us not to make any “chopped liver” jokes. So we won’t.

Instead, we’ve taken out an ad, requesting Craig’s List-combers to write the yuks for us. We’ll send him the best ones. Unless he sends us a cease-and-desist letter first.

Feel better, Craig.
