Yep, I did see that one. If I recall correctly, the guy who bought it from them was going to strip it down for parts. It essentially became a junk yard vehicle.

Even though this is a freezer and not a car, I'm betting the rubber and plastic parts have absorbed enough odor to make a complete recovery to usefulness near impossible.

Money might be tight these days, but I think I'd switch to buying Busch Light by the case before I used this freezer to chill my homebrew....

I think the fact that the meat inside had rotted would already give us a clue that it didn't work...but of course none of us married our cousin, or have won the Darwin award (Except may LGI, about the cousin part)

Anyone else get the eerie feeling the "meat" might just be a missing ex-wife?

Cue The Who opening theme sequence.

Chopped up hookers went through my mind when I read it.

A brave (and desperate) man is the one who takes up that offer.

You have got to ask yourself the question: How much money would you pay to have a freezer full of rotting meat and food cleaned? Would it be close to the same cost of buying a similar used one from Craigs list? Or even a new one (depending on the amount and condition of said rotting meat)?
