Sink, sank, sunk and stunk. The MLS and real estate ads this week continue to go down faster than Greece’s economy. Thanks to Bruce Walter of Lafayette, IN for some great material this week. Check out these hysterical bloopers (particularly the Freudian slips, as we saved the best for last):

 Something Missing…

“Too mush to describe” (Uh, your recent brain  diagnosis?)

“Turn one” (Heidi Fleiss’s explanation when asked her line of work.)

“2 dedroom house” (That explains the divorce summons…)

“Mall area for kids”  (I believe that called a mosh pit…)

Advertisement. Scroll to continue reading.

Something Extra

“Deck furniture i sperm” (So not something I want to sit on…)

“This is a greta house” (For those who are into Swedish Modern…)

“Refrigerator imploded”  (Reason #1 not to hide explosives in your freezer.)

“Double sank” (Let me guess – your career and your partner’s?)

Something Shady

“Pat holder in kitchen” (Pat’s husband snoring on the couch.)

“New scrams” (Pat’s husband just entered bearing firearms…)

“Close to palesides” (Said Tonto when viewing The Lone Ranger in a Speedo.)

“Covered with veins” (Uh, Betty White in a bathing suit?)

“Wraparound clock” (Some architecture is timeless.)

Something For Adults Only…

“Large swimming pole” (At last – a home for aquatic strippers!)

Advertisement. Scroll to continue reading.

“Dick on the link” (Said the former Mrs. Tiger Woods when asked where Tiger was hiding out.)

That’s it for this week, folks. Remember: Spell 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.
