But would you want your daughter to marry one?



It's against the law to discriminate on the basis of color when it comes to selling a house, you know. Even the bright yellow among us need places to live.

just the thought of you making a comment like that shows your racist true colors.

Would you want your daughter to marry one?

Patricia said...

Wow! This one is literally just a couple of miles from my house. I never knew there were m&ms living so close...I'm going to have to bring that up at the next neighborhood watch meeting...

And that tablecloth? I have a sneaky feeling these people have an animated foods fetish!

I think they used the same random-location-generator for the lawn furnishings as they used to scatter stuff on their walls.

They're really big on 45-degree angles, aren't they?

Ray said...

LOL @ anonymous's assertion of racism. I suggest you stop reading this blog immediately. The ignorant honky who wrote the offending text is sure to raise your dander again in the future.

Heck, we should all stop reading!

Here's to the thin-skinned among us. May they always be a source of humor.

Why is there a giant hole in the side of his head?

Ash said...

Loving the site, but with these new dark blue backgrounds I can't read the captions easily :(

Brandy said...

I was enjoying all the pics of the various rooms, such lovely shades. then I got to the last picture of... a torture chamber? A darkroom?

NB: given this house is in Alabama, I can understand the joke. It's sad that there actually ARE still people who think this way!

Like my friend told her teenage son when he asked her if she would still love him if he was gay (He isn't, he just wanted to know how much she loved him/her thoughts on sexuality) Her response was "I wouldn't care if you married a purple poodle! It's hard enough to find and keep love in this world." Good answer!

Topaz said...

No, he's not the marrying kind - he's the "drill a hole in the side of his head and suck out his brains" kind...

T said...

wait... if my daughter DOES marry one, does that mean a lifetime supply of chocolate?

oh wait, I don't like chocolate - never mind...

and the hole in the side of his head is because he was a grocery display before he moved up in the world and got his own house :)

Ash: what dark blue background?

ipa said...

Some people have no frikkin sense of humor. Thank goodness Sara does.
Bless you girl - you make me laugh every day xxxxxxxxx

What colour would my grandbabies be then?

Love the "purple poodle" answer, I'll keep that one in case I ever need it.

Charlene said...

I don't know if I'd have the guts, or the lack of guts, to accuse someone of racism under the name "anonymous". I'd want to use my own name so that people didn't know I was a 14-year-old troll trying to get a rise out of everyone.

Sara, I think your post was funny, anonymous must have taken her "life is so serious" pill today.

What I can't understand is why the homeowner wouldn't make an effort on the day the pics were being taken. Do you suppose the realtor kept it a secret from her? Just a few little changes would have shown this house in a totally different light.

Are there really people who haven't read the "tips to sell" that are on tv and on every realtor and do-it-yourself site on the internet?

I can understand the foreclosures (although I'd likely do a little strategic cleaning if I were the realtor), but the regular houses that people really want to sell? What's up with that? ohj

Sara said...

Oh, I don't mind -- in fact, reading anonymous's comment made me laugh. I'm still not sure if they were playing along, or if they were just clueless. (I'm leaning towards the second.)

Because of spammers, I have to approve all comments that get posted here; if you see something like anon's comment up, you know I'm not too concerned.

Thanks, though, all of you! You make my day, too.

What's with the beds in corners instead of against walls. It... makes... me... want... to... scream!!
