Tiger Print Couch on Craigslist Apparently Has the Power to Get You Pregnant (PHOTO)

If you've been trying to conceive and it doesn't seem to be happening the  old fashioned way, there's another option to consider before you pursue IVF, acupuncture, or adoption: A tiger-striped couch professed to have pregnancy powers is for sale on Craigslist.

So, what's the deal -- do you have to get down and dirty on this sofa or is being in the same room with it enough to seal the deal? The ad makes the following claim

This couch can make it happen. (The last three couples within 50 feet of this couch have ALL gotten pregnant. Including one whose doctor said there was a 1% chance.)

Wow, those are some pretty interesting stats! And not a bad marketing ploy considering this animal print piece wouldn't appeal to just anyone! So, let's say you're hoping to start a family or expand the one you've got -- would you shell out $7,000 (yes, that's the asking price!!) for this baby? 

If your answer is "yes," don't forget you'll probably need to make some changes to your existing furnishings to pull the whole look together. (In other words, time to ditch the florals and plaids!) Would you feel obliged to tell your guests why you've made this drastic decorating decision? And is it worth it? We guess that depends on if it really works or if it's just one of those weird coincidences like when every woman in your office or on your block seems to be expecting simultaneously.

On the flip side, what if someone you know makes this purchase and you're not in the market for a new addition to the fam -- should you flee the room immediately? LOL!

Hopefully whoever purchases it will keep us posted on its supposed magical powers!
