The phrase 'beggars can't be choosers' has never been more appropriate.

A person on the prowl for a new roommate has gained internet fame for listing the "worst flatmate wanted ad of all time".

The post begins off fairly normal, if slightly picky, with the unnamed posters ideal flatmate being someone "vegan (NOT vegetarian) responsible, mature, quiet and independent". 

However, things escalate quickly, with the listing going on to ask that the new flatmate must eat "100 percent vegan" - including any guests that they invite over.

From there, the poster gets even more specific, saying that the successful applicant will need to eat "100 percent sugar free". "No added sugar allowed in the house," it adds. However, don't panic because apparently "fruit is fine" - phew.

The poster lists their hobbies as "poetry, yoga, tai chi" and, bizarrely, "raw vegetable juicing".

The post has gathered less than favourable responses, with one commenter writing "geez I wonder how he is going to handle all the offers he is sure to get".

Another commenter suggested a work-around for the fruit-only rule, saying "I think wine is okay".

It is unclear whether the poster has found their perfect flatmate, but the outcry online suggests perhaps not.
