The gaffes and laughs were all over the MLS and the real estate ads this week, friends, and we guarantee you’ll laugh or your money back.

It’s Blooper Wednesday! Heat really does affect the brain, my friends. Check out these bloopers if you want to know how a brain looks when sun-baked and enebriated. Thanks to Coldwell Banker colleague Michael Jacobs of Pasadena for some truly hilarious finds.

Synapse Lapse

“Come see beaulot” (Bueller? Bueller?)

“Garden w/ decomposition” (And you thought all the skeletons were in the closet…)

“Rat just added to drive” (Roadkill just added to tire.)

“Please don’t disturd” (Another listing just went into the crapper.)

“Must have food FICOs” (Hooray – a chance for gluttonous Americans to eat our way back to an AAA  credit rating!)

Cerebral Tilt

“View of marlina and docks” (Attention, Marlina: The Fifth Fleet will not be arriving until Saturday.)

“Cross over bride” (Another wedding in Boys Town.)

“Bald colors” (Let me guess – flesh-tone in the winter, beet red in the summer?)

“Long cement dive” (That’s called a bellyflop in most circles.)

“Push crapet” (Try a laxative.)

Mold on the Lobes?

“Buy now – save bug” (VW or something with legs?)

“Costume blind” (Trick or treat with Helen Keller?)

“Be in time for Labor” (I’ve got news, pal – labor waits for no one!)

“Frosty glass” (If it has a Fosters in it, count me in.)

Auto-Fill Folly of the Week… Maybe the Year!

“Open foreplay, hardwood” (Marlina, it seems the Fleet really has arrived.)

 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.

    As a Sailor, I’d like to object to this…..oh never mind, lemme go get the computer screen cleaner AGAIN.  Thanks Gwen, thanks a lot – do you have any idea how many monitors I’ve gone through reading your posts and spitting coffee?
