Hi! I mean, bonjour!



Laura found this happy trio in a listing. Unfortunately I don't speak French, so I can't tell you if they're included in the house. Probably, though. C'est pas grave!

What the hell are they cooking?

what the hell are they doing? destroying candy?

I can't read French either, so I can be of no help with the listing- but what, exactly, are the husband and son disemboweling while Mom™ looks on in delight?

Oysters! What else? Apparently, it's an old vicarage. Not that it explains anything, of course... So now, you got yourself a French-speaking reader. I just discovered your blog and I love it!

It's not said what they're doing, there is only the description of the house. But yeah it looks like they're cooking (maybe mushrooms).

btw : have you notice the pictures on the furniture on the right of the picture ?

I'm beginning to wonder if the world economy is so bad that now people are selling their houses, but plan to remain in the house. Unsuspecting buyers assume these families are going to move out, but when they arrive to move in there are the people we have seen in the listing still living there. They could say to the new owners, "It wasn't false advertising...we showed you what came with the house in the pictures...us!"

Take a look at the original listing - this is the ONLY picture?!?! Crazy!

It says "8 pieces" and I see 4 chairs, a table and three people. Yes, I believe they are included.

I am French and I assure you they are not eating an orange cat, but just seafood and oysters !

i don't think they're eating anything. just cutting their wrists with sharpened tea spoons. obviously not sharpened enough given the effort they're having to put in. which of course is the only reasonable responce to finding bagpuss dead on the table (and for those of you who didn't grow up in the uk in the 70s check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COmKmFjhG5o to see bagpuss and his friends)
