Actually, it'd be quite weird in New Zealand as well


Megan in NZ left a link to this listing in a comment, but I just had to stick it up front. The homeowner seems to be an exhibitionist, and it's good to have goals.

Cats? Comes with two cats??? Is she one of them?

Sonnjea said...

Oh, excuse me, dear, I just brought the Realtor by to take some photos for the listing. Don't bother getting up. By the way, you don't mind if we leave the cats, do you? He thinks they'll up the value.

green-minded person said...

well if she's included, i bet the car is too, right? right?

Nocturnal Queen said...

lol Wow. I don't know what to say about that.

jinx-of-2ndlaw said...

Wow. That is really odd.

Maybe she's the gardener, and instead of chopping down the burgeoning forest which is the front yard, she sneaks inside and lounges in that fabu tub!

I'm not sure I can say a thing without speculating on the homeowners... can I speculate on the droves of men lined up to see the house?

Lind Family said...

Um ... alrighty then.

FoxyMoron said...

Well it IS New Zealand....

The Flight of the Conchords quote only makes you that much cooler, Sara.

Blandwagon said...

It's their subtle way of explaining to prospective buyers that the bathtub can be used for purposes other than makin' moonshine.

Karasu said...

Personally, I like a bit more water in my tub.

AgentdeVoyages said...

To be fair, Auckland is a erm.. racy city.. and our country has legalized brothels. Perhaps this is also a business for sale?..

Megan said...

Hey foxymoron....please do not judge NZ on this listing alone. The rest of us are all very normal!

jediroller said...

Flight Of The Conchords reference spotted! Well done.

Maki said...

They probably thought they'd be able to negotiate the selling price a notch by putting her in the tub? But really I can't stop laughin because the look on the face - divine!!!

Linnea said...

oh LOL - they took the picture off the listing!

Anonymous said...

Props for the "Conchords" reference. The bathing beauty seems to have been removed from the ad, though.

fposte said...

Aw, she's gone from the listing now.

Ruth said...

Why on earth would they want to take that down? Do you mean people are mocking the picture??? I am shocked.

Colleen said...

can i just rent the two cats?

Lauren said...

She looks happy... what do you suppose is being concealed by the black ellipse? ;P

("that's why they call them business socks - ooo!")

a cat of impossible colour said...

I'll add my voice to the growing throng and say - nice FOTC reference :)!

Anonymous said...

I really wish the black ellipse had covered something nasty, but it appears to be a foam pillow. There's another photo with 2 of them.

Foxymoron said...

Megan I was just joking, you know the old rivalry between OZ and NZ!
I have some very nice Kiwi friends. :)

ShaggyRed said...

Obviously the woman is getting back at her other half, because any -decent- Kiwi woulda had some beers in the tub.

David said...

Saw the Conchords ref before I saw the image - only sorry I saw the post late. Great job.

KLZ said...

Show me the cats. How can you expect me to make an offer if I can't see what I'm buying.

Glad that woman is gone; I like to take baths and don't want to fight over the tub - or suffer from comparisons.

Seriously?

Family Fielding Brown. said...

OOOOOOO, does she clean and sort laundry and that sort of thing?
I'd love to buy a house that comes complete with support staff, oh yes.

This is not as subtle as that naked person selling a teapot on an online auction and you could see their reflection in it.

Oh, and that was in Australia. That darned southern hemisphere!
