File this under brilliant. How Stuff Works decided to find out what kind of responses you'd get if you actually put out a call for a real life A-Team. Knowing that the characters of Face, Hannibal, Murdoch and the rest lived in Los Angeles, they placed an ad on Craigslist LA for a mission that the authorities just couldn't seem to crack. Here are the requirements:

I'm looking for a crew of four - a pilot, a veteran with leadership qualities, a bouncer-type who knows his way around a welding torch, and a face-man. Crack commando experience a plus. Own van and car a plus. Access to cropduster a definite plus...gunplay okay but please no deaths.

If only we'd found out sooner. We'd make a great B.A. Baracus.The responses they received go from the hilarious to the scary. Check 'em out. We can't wait for phase three.
