Doubt resistant landscaping and other hilarious MLS oddities

Friends, the MLS was rife with strange spelling and phrasing this week. Our local newspaper ads also gave the MLS some great competition. Are we all just tired after a year in the trenches? Or are there a lot of block heads walking around out there? You decide:

November Potpourri

“Ask about growth” (Okay. What’s that large knob on your forehead?)

“Set among oats”  (Enticing… if you’re a horse named Mr. Ed.)

“Doubt resistant landscaping” (Unlike your career…)

“Comes with hoe warrant” (Thank you, you tool.)

“This will pleasure buyer” (Uh, that’s illegal in most states, pal.)

Doctor NO

“Attack docs” (Should I assume they use scalpels instead of brass knuckles?)

“New asphalt in suture” (That had to hurt.)

“Suction postponed” (Arse lipo or bad typo?)

“Needs cosmetic lift”  (Maybe you should re-schedule the suction, dear.)

Can You Spell “Sell”?

“Must smell” (As does your spelling?)

“Bust sell” (Thank you, Dr. Rack.)

“Short sake” (Does that come with dim sum?)

“Show and swell” (Yeah, I have that problem with potato chips.)

“Short Sale ahs been expected” (So has your brain seizure.)

This Week’s fave:

“Submit forks by Tues.” (Or what, I’m forked?)

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.
