Elvis has, in fact, not left the building.


Can I get you anything else, ma'am? Maybe a nice peanut butter and bacon sandwich?

(Found by Janette. Sorry about using the obvious "left the building" joke, but I have no will power. Mmmm. Bacon.)

Okay, I thought that was disturbing enough (it is), but then I saw the eagle/buffalo hybrid head over the fireplace.

Please don't tell me you get to this place via a flying cassowary.

Oh, darn, THAT'S where I left him!

Its now or never,
This house for sale,
Assume my mortgage,
And do not fail.
Tomorrow will be too late,
Its now or never....
My bank won't wait!

Why are there so many photos of corner and doorways and ugly mirrors and bad wallpaper?

And the meter box?

And I have no idea what that silver thing is on that black background.

And is there really a high school called Kickapoo?

I love this: "Seller will provide $200 gift certificate from Stanley Steemer for carpet cleaning at closing." For a $126k house! Thank you, Elvis, for showing those Greenwich folks how it's done. This message is for the realtors of the previous house- pay attention!

Elvis looks a little... er... excited about this place.

Alissa said...

Obviously this house is haunted by Elvis' ghost. I think he must dig the bad wallpaper.

burhanistan said...

He doesn't have a reflection in the mirror! He's undead! Destroy the Vampire Elvis!

Oh, wait. That's probably just the camera angle.

I'll get you someday, Vampire Elvis.

Mama T said...

excited...or just plain old bloated. Did Elvis have IBS?
Sure looks like it here.

Angel said...

"Tastefully decorated..." Um, okay...

drjim said...

I thought it was a peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwich.....

Annarchy said...

There seems to be a lot going on there in 1500 sq.ft.

Looking through the photos, did you see the houseplant-with-stool-legs and his sidekick crucifix-with legs? Those guys are about to make a run for it, and I can't blame them.

And wait - have they got tiny taxidermy as a pet? What is that thing in the corner?

I love that the description says 'tastefully decorated.'

All these blog crossovers are making my head spin lately... this one could just as well be featured on Picture is Unrelated.

OH MY FREAKING GOD!!

That is the greatest/craziest thing i've ever seen.
This is the first time i've ever used "all-caps", but that totally deserves it. WTF?!

It could be a crappy wax statue. Or this guy actually dresses like that around the house. Either one...AWESOME

Mandy - Kickapoo is the name of a local Indian tribe. Did anyone notice the stuffed white tiger on the bed - awesome!

Decorating courtesy of retro Fingerhut. Why do I believe this house is in close proximity to Branson, MO? Ugh..I'm dripping in '80's mauve.

Priceless: Tom Servo sighting in the dining room!

The only thing I can think of with the meter box is that FHA loans require a certain type of circuit breaker before they will approve a loan. I know it's one of the first thing my realtor looks at when we go down to the basement. I'm generally looking at older homes though. I would have assumed that a house that is only 25 to 30 years, as this ones claims, would have been built with the new breakers.

Decadent Housewife said...

Yeah well, they got the laundry room right.

Trish said...

Mudslicker - Springfield is only about a half hour to Branson!

This place is going to give me nightmares. Oh and that space with all the crap on the shelves (garage??? they couldn't have shown the whole garage???) am I the only one that saw Darth Vader helmets at first?

Elvis is not there in the alternate view of the dining room, so it must be a guy in a suit.

Land of shimp said...

Oh, jackpot. Tacky and creepy, who could ask for anything more?

Admittedly, if memory serves, according to the most basic of marketing classes, there isn't much money to be made in either the niche eerie and tasteless markets.

Stuart said...

Anon - that's actually a bit of a comfort, because honestly I'd really really hate to think that someone spent money on a wax figure of Lenny, The Elvis Impersonator.

Christina said...

I LOLed at "Tastefully decorated." I suppose wallpaper in the bathroom and fake crystal chandeliers WERE tasteful in 1976.

This whole listing is utter fail, even without the creepy Elvis. WHY would we want to see their messy garage, a closeup of a watercolor painting, and a zoomed-in picture of the bathroom tile? Dear realtors: sometimes less is more.

Stacy said...

It's not even a good likeness of Elvis (if, indeed, it is a wax figure). Maybe it's the lady's dead husband, and she had him stuffed in her favorite, um, playtime outfit.

Creepy, scary ... ain't that America! (Oh, wait, that's John Cougar Mellencamp ...)
