Marketing bloopers: do we blame Siri or Dr. Freud?

Not every marketing typo slips through the cracks, in fact, there are so many just in real estate listings alone to occupy a weekly feature here for going on four years.

Marketing bloopers guaranteed to crack you up

Hi Friends – welcome to this week’s MLS blooper reel. I know we all depend on technology to expedite business transactions and marketing, but I wonder what is being lost in the process.

Spelling? Proofreading? Common sense? Be sure to spell check AND proofread before hitting “submit,” or you could end up in the Blooper Hall of Fame like these pimps. Uh, I mean perps:

Hello Siri, Good-bye Sanity

“The sun will curse your blues” ( …And the seller will curse your spelling.)

“No more cramps closets” (Apparently the closets are in menopause.)

“Buy ow!” (Yes, there’s a lot of pain that comes with a mortgage.)

“Feeling the space squeeze? (Only in my pantyhose.)

Droid or Freud?

“Don’t mess these” (…Said Grandma to Gramps as she handed him another pair of boxers.)

“Call for pre-constriction rates” (Hmmm…a special on bypass surgeries, I presume.)

“Catle by the sea” (Cow paddy in the surf.)

“Seller just hydroflushed” (I hope he burned a match afterward.)

Is There a Doctor in the House?

“Follow the sighs” (I’m sure they are coming from your hapless seller.)

“Good pices” (Sounds fishy to me…)

“Sandbasted glass” (It’s glass, dude – not a turkey!)

“On a clean day, you can see forever” (If you’re waiting for the L.A. smog to clear, fuggedaboutit.)

Calling Dr Freud

“Root stuck in drain” (That’s why it’s always a good idea to keep your trousers zipped.)

“Sex unit income property” (Welcome to the Hollywood Hooker Hotel.)

“Just bring your tootbush” (Bush… honking… nope – can’t go there.)

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.

    “Tootbush.” For the love of GOD, I just ruined my keyboard, screen, and t-shirt.
