If you're in need of child-size crutches -- and have some smokes to spare -- you're in luck: Someone in Chandler is willing to make a trade.

The only catch is that the previous owner of the crutches -- according to the person who posted the ad (pictured above) on Craigslist -- is a kid . . . and he's dead.

See the ad here.

As you can see, the description of the ad says, "The kid died so I don't need these anymore. Will trade for cigarettes."

We're gonna go ahead and assume this is a hilarious sick joke, but we've contacted the poster just to be sure. We'll let you know if we hear back.
