“Weeping grounds” and other ad bloopers to cry about

Advertising is hard work, especially for people without a spell checker or common sense. Below is proof, but be warned – you will laugh.

advertising bloopers

Ah, yes – it’s Blooper Day again, my friends. I have so much fun collecting these MLS gaffes from all over the U.S., it should be illegal. Check out these real estate listing and advertising bloopers if you want to laugh until you cry:


“Overlooks the rezervwa”  (This must be a body of water in Poland.)

“This house will speak to you” (Not anymore – I take drugs for that.)

“No feet!” (And yet you’ve done such a fine job of running amuck…)

“Please don’t crawl after 8 pm” (Well that sure puts a crimp in my Happy Hour.)

“View of the jedi” (“May the Force be with you.” You’ll need it.)

Watered Down

“Low escrow fees, no patting” (No patting? I guess that “friendly uncle” routine finally bit you in the ass.)

“We have old record.” (Felony “patting,” I presume?)

“Barn and large chicken glop” (Hmmm…’seems like you need a large chicken bidet.)

“Townhouse stile” (Put down your bong – it’s not the house that’s spinning.)

Water Works

“Weeping grounds” (It’s no surprise your seller is shedding tears.)

“Supremes time taking work” (Offered By Motown Realty. Their motto: “You Can’t Hurry Love.”)

“Turkey penthouse” (For upwardly mobile Butterballs.)

“Hurry before school beacons” (Methinks there’s no light at the end of your tunnel.)

Fire Water

“Bluepints for addition” (If green pints are for the Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, then are blue pints for little drunken muppets on Cookie Monster Day?)

“Speed hump area” (We must be dating the same guy.)

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.
