There are so many benefits to the sharing economy; the most obvious being that it makes life easier in many ways. Before Uber and Lyft, it was much harder (and more expensive for that matter) to get to where you wanted to go. Before ParqEx, it was impossible to park in dense areas like Wicker Park, West Loop and Wrigleyville. The sharing economy flat out make life easier, better and in this case, absolutely hilarious.
Now, we don’t want to encourage any of you to use the sharing economy as a source of comic relief, but let’s take a look at how a few individuals turned the sharing economy into a comedy show; try not to laugh:
1.) So apparently putting an Igloo on AirBnB is frowned upon?
This wise-guy decided to use the abundance of snow to try to make a little extra cash. He may not have made much money, but it sure was pretty dang funny, and creative:

2.) Uber experiences you told your friends about…
Sometimes an uneventful Uber ride is what you get; other times, your Uber driver plays “Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls 6 times in a row (who said that was a bad thing?).
Thanks, Christian, for making us laugh.

3.) Not into normal hotels? Stay in a backyard or eat breakfast with giraffes!
Different than a hotel? Yes. Better? That’s up to you to decide 🙂
4.) Lyft drivers are getting creative, and a little creepy..?
