I swear, officer, it's not grass



When Jim e-mailed me this listing, my first thought was "What's the big deal?" (because I'm rude like that, but just silently. In my head. I wouldn't share it. Oh damnit, I just did.) So it's a house with a lawn... oh... wait... that's not a lawn. Put the mower away, dear.

I think that's Oscar the Grouch's swimming pool. Word on the street (of Sesame, that is) is that he turned all Hollywood and relocated to sunny California.

I think he wanted to be near happy cows.

It is actually a big old pool of guacamole. Get the chips!

Why do I suddenly feel like I need a bleach shower?

Do the owners have an aversion to sunlight? For a house that size there are so few windows as it is and every window that does exist is blocked by either a large piece of furniture or covered up with heavy curtains. My guess is distant relatives of Nosferatu live there.

They're just using their pool as a giant Jell-O mold. What's wrong with that? I mean, who doesn't like lime Jell-O?

Anon -- the windows are outside, framing the yard.

Gee, the pool looks fine on the Google views. The location, not so much. The big glass wall is separating this house's back yard from the San Diego Freeway.

The pool is greener than the "lawn"? And the "big" TV is blocking the windows?? And what's with that Wall to Nowhere complete with windows??? Good one!
