“No pets over 450 lbs” and other real life marketing typos

There is nothing more gratifying than sifting through hundreds of real estate listings and finding borderline offensive errors like these – they are always good for a laugh, and serve as a weekly reminder to spell check ALL marketing copy before hitting submit!

Prepare yourselves for some explosive laughs this week, friends. The Blooper Scooper is back with some real head-scratchers from the MLS and local ads. Check out these winners-from-losers:

Listing Go Boom!

“Newc on market”  (That explains the load of uranium in your front yard.)

“Ham made kitchen cabinets” (Well that’s one way to bring home the bacon!)

“Credit for the mob” (In Jersey, that’s known as “delivering Vinny the vig.”)

“Near L.A. metro lime”  (Trust me, the lime isn’t the only evidence that our L.A. bus drivers have been doing tequila shooters!)

Career Go Boom, Too

“No pets over 450 lbs”  (My wildebeest will be very disappointed.)

“Drawling for new Sams song phone” (I suggest you ask Sam to teach you the Alphabet Song.)

“This unit has patio, no garland” (If you find a stocking full of coal on that patio, no doubt your lack of holiday spirit pissed off Santa.)

“Last house going downhill” (How did you teach the house to follow your career?)

“Transfer feet not covered (So what are you saying – you want to borrow my socks?)

Debra and Miss Piggy Make Boom Boom

“Debra will be cleaned up Thurs.”  (Apparently the 2nd Fleet is due to arrive…)

“Walter damage in bath” (Maybe Walter should set down his beer can when trying to hit the porcelain.)

“Great view if not odor cast” (Poster advertising a ride on Break of Dawn – Long Island’s ever-popular garbage barge.)

“Nice place with room to glow” (I’m sure that’s enticing for those who want to take up residence in a koi pond.)

“EZ sow” (Yeah, I heard Miss Piggy was a horny little ham-bone.)

And The Dubious Distinction Award Goes To:

“This one will knock your sacks off” (Proudly offered by Neuter Realty, Inc. Their motto: Who ya gonna call? B__lbusters!)

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