Help! It's sinking!



Weighted down by the pink siding, the house slowly sank into the ground and was never seen again... at least not on the Earth's surface. If you're a hollow earther, well, have we got a bargain for you!

It's just built on a hill...??? Not sure why this is on the blog, b/c it's very common!

The photo's here just because it made me laugh, anonymous. I know it's a house built on a hill. But the way the photo was taken makes it look -- to me, with my muscular (rar!) sense of the absurd -- like it's sinking into quicksand.

"House! Please! You're letting the sadness of the swamps get to you. You have to try! You have to care!"

Sigh. Poor Atreyu... That scene gave my six year old self flashbacks.

I like the photo and the caption. It belongs on the blog because whoever took it could've done a better job. There's lots of photos of houses on hills out there but they don't look like they're sinking into the ground. Also, the horrid pink color deserves mention too.

Aside from the photo, which makes it look like the poor house is busy being ingested in a flood of Pepto Bismol, check out the Google view of down the street. There's a house with an aqua marine circle of grass that, I swear, looks like a landing pad for the invasion from afar.

Bye cruel world *glub glub* out I go in my vaguely pink glory! Two houses down comes the scourge! Pelt 'em with glasses of water, at the very least. Hey, couldn't hurt. *glub glub* Best, dying pink house.

Ok, first I don't see why they call it a tri-level, it looks like at best you'd call it a ranch with a daylight basement. But then reading the copy reveals that the back view, with the slider, is where the garage was, which was converted to living space. Lets face it, the realtor didn't have much to work with here! And then the color - well, you know she just snapped a couple pictures and ran!
