The Blooper Blog is back, friends. Thanks to Bruce Walter of West Lafayette, Indiana for a laundry list of hysterical blooper finds. Believe it or not, only one was from L.A. this week! Maybe word is getting out that Big Bother is watching. Uh, Big Brother. No, let’s stick with Bother. Check these out marketing typos:

My Kind of Man

“Handy man wanted 3 bedrooms”  (He’s not only handy, he’s hearty!)

“Partial basemen” (That explains the wooden legs in the dugout.)

“Most lightening is missing” (That’s because it touched down in your cranium.)

“Dining rm with double foreplace” (If wine and sweet talk doesn’t get you hot, you can jump into the fire…twice.)

My Kind of Frog

“Home on right side of toad” (Amphibian mobile homes must be back in vogue.)

“Toms of starage”  (Uh…what you get when Tom Cruise and Tom Selleck marry Leonard Nimoy?)

“Trey ceiling in dingin area” (Honey, you’ve been dung tres times!)

“Great locration in the middle of no where” (The place where you left your IQ?)

My Kind of Town

“Turn right onto Paris” (Lindsey Lohan’s explanation to awed bystanders when Paris Hilton was trapped under Lindsay’s Mercedes.)

“Built-in window sheet” (The stager must specialize in dorm rooms.)

“Large laundry roo” (Let me guess – a kangaroo with a spin cycle?)

“Keg under mat” (Vomit all over Mat.)

“Reallty niice”  (Reallty niice impersonation of Kathryn Hepburn, but keep your day job.)

Advertise with The American Genius

And for the Finale – My Kind of G

“Nice fenced in yard for g” (G spot? G-string? G.I.? Gee I just had a stroke? And most importantly, G, why fence it in?)

That’s all of the marketing typos you get to see this week, folks, but we’ll be back next week. Remember: spell well and sell!

open book management
Open book management style: what is it? When I was a college student, I remember someone showing my class a link where we could look up all of the staff and faculty’s salaries. My mind was blown – I never thought I could be privy to such information. But it…

Mortgage application volume took a dip last week According to the Mortgage Bankers Association’s (MBA) Weekly Mortgage Applications Survey for the week ending January 25, 2013, mortgage application volume fell 8.1 percent from the week prior, including adjustments to account for the federal holiday. The Market Composite Index, a measure…

I wear several hats: My mink fedora real estate hat belongs to Sotheby’s International Realty on the world famous Sunset Strip. I’M not world famous, but I've garnered a few Top Producer credits along the way. I also wear a coonskin writer's cap with an arrow through it, having written a few novels and screenplays and scored a few awards there, too. (The arrow was from a tasteless critic.) My sequined turban is my thespian hat for my roles on stage, and in film and television, Dahling. You can check me out in all my infamy at LinkedIn, LAhomesite.com, SherlockOfHomes, IMDB or you can shoot arrows at my head via email. I can take it.
