‘Lotta bing for the buc’ and other crazy marketing typos

The occasional marketing typo happens, but writing a property description for a house must be the most difficult copy to write, because we find so many errors that we can showcase them here every week. Enjoy the hilarity!


Marketing typos galore

It’s Blooper Day again folks, and  I found everything from cod to chaos in the MLS and other real estate advertisements. Some of these gaffes were hard to decipher, but they were all darn funny. Enjoy:

Are You Lost?

“Please leave our phone #” (If you’re that lost, how ’bout a trail of bread crumbs?)

“Send daft” (So they found your missing twin?)

“Great food from the dell” (Well, “Heigh ho the derry-o”!)

Advertisement. Scroll to continue reading.

“Bldg has EQ assurance” (This is Hollywood – that’s as obvious as bimbo assurance.)

Are You Loopy?

“Doorball out of order” (As is the screwball.)

“BBQ on pat” (Pat must be one saucy broad!)

“Big herd garden” (Why do you grow – cow paddies?)

“Use luck box and cod” (I think your luck ran out when the tide came in.)

Advertisement. Scroll to continue reading.

Are You High?

“No drogs allowoed” (Already baked, huh?)

“Lotta bing for the buc” (I think I just stumbled across a menu from a Chinese restaurant.)

“Leaf shoes at door” (I suppose it’s always good to camouflage oneself in the jungles of Los Angeles.)

“Some sighs of moisture”  (News flash: That’s called “spitting.”)

“Grope showings only” (Yay – another party at Charlie Sheen’s house!)

Advertisement. Scroll to continue reading.

You’re Toast!

“We will attach a pfd” (If that means “Portuguese Flamenco dancer,” I’m sure he has his own attachments.)

“Key under matt” (Well, Matt, that’s one way to get your ass scratched!)

That’s it for this week, folks. Remember: spell well and sell!

Written By

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,, SherlockOfHomes, IMDB or you can shoot arrows at my head via email. I can take it.
