Marketing bloopers galore
It’s Blooper Day, friends, and all I can say is, “bombs away!” If you want a few hearty laughs, check out these MLS and advertising listing remarks that self-detonated:
“Seller wood carry” (Another case of an Oregon lumberjack making a wrong turn and ending up in Los Angeles.)
“New – it’s here – art deco!” (Uh, you’re a little late to the party, Mr. Van Winkle.)
“Medi room with theatre seating” (How do you get the popcorn through the IV?)
“No deal with lawyers” (How does it feel to be sporting a big target on your forehead, Sue-mi?)
Fire in the Hole!
“Must remove and cover feet” (If I’d known I’d have to walk on my hands, I would have worn fancy underwear.)
“Termite and dryrat present” (You must be a real treat at the office gift exchange.)
“Near elementary and missle school nearby” (Hence the giant, smoking hole in the side of the house.)
“New sail price” (Why bother – your ship just sank.)
“Good place to raise a chile” (I suppose that’s important if you’re a gardener in Tijuana.)
“Best dal in Hollywood” (Can I get tandoori chicken with that?)
“Call for annointment” (That depends – are you just going to dip me in oil, or will there be a Fat Fryer involved?)
“Elec gate not in worming cond” (That’s exactly why gates should not be fed uncooked pork.)
“House on hill needs fixing” (If you are referring to the Capitol Building, I concur.)
Two Targets Too Big to Miss!
“Steamer in shower” (Sounds like something that should have been left in the toilet.)
“Enjoy tennis and shuffleballs” (That explains why you’re not wearing a jock strap.)
That’s it for this week, folks. Remember: spell well and sell!
