When was the last time you saw a tourist in your back yard...or a horse head on your street? This week the Blooper Scooper picked up some beauties, friends. Some of these goofs are baffling, but I think we owe Auto-fill a lot of credit for that. Thanks to Jane Peters of Los Angeles for her great find. Spell well and sell well, folks! The Tour Is About To Begin “Backyard has multiple tourists” (Another Hollywood tour bus veered off course.) “New mane to street” (Thank you, Vito Corleone.) “Furnished least by Oct 1″ (Offered by We-Steal-Your-Stuff Realty) “Dome vacancies” (Is the dome that (31 comments)
From cheese to sleaze, the MLS and the local real estate ads across the country were full of bloopers this week. Thanks to Jane Peters, Dick Beals and Patrick Martin for their hysterical contributions. Read ‘em and weep: It’s a Matter of Fact “Grate views” (I assume that cutting the cheese is your specialty...) “Lots of tees in back” (Lots of golf balls in pool.) “Good build” (Is this a house or Matthew McConaughey?) “Roof peeked at top” (IQ peaked at 80.) “Ugli fixer but rooms in tack” (Perhaps that will make up for your lack of same…) It’s a Matter of Perspective (29 comments)
I’m beginning to wonder if some of the typos I find on the MLS and in open house ads are intentional, folks. Apparently some agents will promise anything to fill their open houses and to sell their properties. Check out the comments below. There just can’t be that much booze in this world… You guessed it – it’s Blooper Friday, friends: Peculiar Open Houses “Drip in between 2-5″ (I’ll alert AARP - many of us have leaking problems.) “Bring the kiss for fun” (Only if you bring your wallet for dinner.) “Wine and chest served” (Another party guaranteed to leave lasting mammaries…) “Join us (68 comments)
My Kindergarten ABC's - 09/13/11 03:45 PM
Friends, If you want to read a great blog, this post by Bruce Walter illuminates the highlights of his life, including spending some of his youth in Cuba. What a fascinating life! (That being said, I bet I could kick his arse at Dodgeball.) Via Bruce Walter (Keller Williams Realty Lafayette/West Lafayette, Indiana):
ABSENCE OF MEMORIES I have absolutely no memories of my kindergarten experience at Helen Muraski School in Strongsville, Ohio other than PLAYING DODGEBALL IN THE GYMNASIUM! I just happened to be the champion! No doubt it was an harbinger of things to (9 comments)
Once again it’s TGIF, and the results of this week’s MLS Blooper Scooper are in, friends. I can’t tell you how tempting it is to start naming names…but then I would run the risk of showing up on my own list! Yes, we all make mistakes, and auto-fill is killing us…but c’mon – couldn’t some of these have been avoided? Hard to Swallow? “Septic tang” (An orange-flavored drink preferred by suicidal Astronauts.) “Call listing magnet” (You do appear to be bi-polarized…) “This is a probing sale” (Obviously the former home of a deceased proctologist.) “Nice rehab for you” (Back off, (49 comments)
I’m back this week with more MLS and real estate ad bloopers; and a few of them will bring tears to your eyes. Some of these agents are either in too much of a hurry, or too dumb to waste air. But who am I to judge…I once signed a letter, “Best retards, Gwen.” I am sure my client thought that said it all. Thanks to Dick Beals of Wilmington, NC for his great contribution. Proof or goof, friends. Check these out: Haste Makes “Waste” “Deck with BBQ above garbage” (What could be more tempting than maggots on a burger?) “Craport for two” (80 comments)
