Free Rent In Upscale House Offered For Impersonating A Walrus

A Gumtree user is offering one person the chance to live in Brighton, rent free – as long as they agree to dress up as a walrus for two hours every day.

The advert on the classifieds website explains that the unnamed seller has chosen to retire in Brighton after leading a ‘long and interesting life’, some of which was spent just off the coast of Alaska with a walrus called Gregory.

The seller goes on to say that he has constructed a ‘realistic walrus costume’, which should fit ‘people of average proportions’ – because he has never had a friendship that matched up to Gregory.

The average price of a house in Brighton might be above £200,000, however in order to live for free any prospective lodger must be prepared to fully embrace the role of a walrus.

‘Whilst in the costume you must be a walrus – there must be no speaking in a human voice, and any communication must entail making utterances in the voice of a walrus,’ the advert states.

The seller advises that recordings of what a walrus sounds like can be found online (see below).

The lodger will also have to ‘catch and eat the fish and crabs that I will occasionally throw to you whilst you are being the walrus’ in order to qualify for a ‘spacious double room and complete run of the house’.
