Well, friends, it was a rough week in real estate advertising and MLS listings. Pants were dropped, illegal substances were aplenty, and bodily functions needed attention. There’s no time like the present to fess up if any of the following bloopers were yours. Christmas is coming, and I have a list of people who will be receiving coal in their stockings if they don’t admit to spelling anarchy. Check these out:
Tokes and Blokes
“Come joint us at the open” (A high time hosted by Alice B. Toklas.)
“Aroach from Sunset Blvd” (Number one on Cheech and Chong’s Christmas Wish List)
“New carpot ” (For those in need of mobile weed)
“Big yard w/ trees & lushes” (Uncle Paddy, Uncle Tim: Drop the Guinness and get the hell home.)
“Closet to entertainment” (The history of Ricky Martin…)
“Splashes of eggplant, cream and espresso” (Hey Belushi – Food fight!)
“Credit for pantsing” (Cue Creedence Clearwater Revival: “I see the bad moon arising”…)
“Puper quiet location” (Offered by Flush-n-Hush Realty)
“Close to poopular nightspots” (You must be referring to the “Hollywood Bowel.”)
“We now have clear peed” (Obviously you don’t eat asparagus.)
“Walk to park and balls” (Hmmm…an Ambulatory Fornication Proclamation.)
“Pruperty needs TLC” (Yeah – that zit thing is why Clearasil was invented.)
Things We Can Live Without
“Newly laid pawn in back” (What happened to “cash for your gold”?)
“This one’s for your hussiest buyers” (Hey look – it’s the Heidi Fleiss Residence.)
“Property had a facelit” (‘Seems someone else got lit, too…)
“Includes dead for adjacent lot” (That’s great…for those building a freakin’ cemetery!)
This Week’s Eyebrow Raisers
“Barbarian wood” ( Atilla the Hun is back…and he’s excited.)
“High voltage wires not a problem” (Then why is your hair on fire?)

The tag of “Caught with your pants down” caught my eye. I’ve recently lost a few pounds and (almost) had an embarrassing moment or two on Weds. I was wearing an a-line dress with bootie shorts underneath (hey, I like to be covered!). I couldn’t keep those suckers up for the life of me. I pretty much spent the day feeling like I was a little girl wearing mommy’s clothing and heels as I stumbled through the day tugging on those shorts for dear life.
As soon as I walked in the door, those shorts went straight to a trash container!
Thanks for the morning fun…

Sheila, that’s a very funny visual. It reminds me of a News story here in L.A. that showed a video of a kid who was running from the cops while his low rider pants kept falling down, revealing his butt crack and impeding his getaway. It was hysterical. Yes…he was caught!

These are very funny. It is sad though when agents don’t bother to check for spelling errors. An interesting question would be to ask agents if they would contact another agent if they found errors in that agent’s listing in the MLS.

Great question, Dan. How ’bout it folks – DO ANY OF YOU CONTACT OTHER AGENTS WHEN YOU SEE ERRORS IN THEIR LISTINGS? iF SO, ARE THOSE AGENTS ONLY THE ONES WHOM YOU KNOW?
