Mable on floor, the MLS New Year’s Eve hangover

Happy New Year, friends. This year is starting out with as much laughter as we ended with in 2011 when buyers flocked “like bees to hiney.”  (Please see the 2011 Dufis Award in my last post.)  The following bloopers will prove that nothing much has changed regarding MLS giggles and goofs. Check out these gaffes to start your year with some hearty laughs:

One Too Many

“Mable on floor” (Apparently Mable is running a tab…)

“Start the year with a  bung”  (No thanks, I already divorced one of those.)

“Come for Thai launch” (I didn’t know  a Thai could orbit.)

“Hind end electronics” (Does the seller’s arse lights up like a Christmas tree?)

“New canopee adds color” (I bet a can-o-pee would add warmth, too.)

“Serving crackers and drip” (That explains the can-o-pee.)

And, You’re Staggering…

“Choose custom pants” (I’ll take the ones wearing George Clooney.)

“Good property in desire area” (Let me guess – a one hour hotel just off Hollywood Blvd?)

“Temporary on hood” (That’s called a hit-and-run in L.A.)

“Happy new ear” (…Mumbled Van Gogh just before he sealed the envelope.)

“Nice view pint” (“View” pint? Methinks you’ve been chugging  pints.)

“5bd/3ba mouse” (I suspect there were steroids involved…)

“For hose that want a great view” (Don’t most hose have a great view?)

“Fast appoval with no wit” (There’s no wit like a dim wit, nitwit.)

You’ll Never Recover From THIS!

“All  cocs require wet signatures’ (Uh… I first heard that line from my high school boyfriend, pal. I believe he’s still in intensive care.)

 Happy New Year, One and All!

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.
