YIKES!!!

Looks like there was some sort of impact in the kitchen in the last pic. Apparently, it was jolting enough that the cow airbags were deployed.

My theory is that it was one of those flying toasters from a retro microsoft screen saver that was the culprit. Toaster sonar must have been on the fritz.

What in the world is that cowbag hanging in the kitchen, anyway?

"The hood over the stove was getting to be hideous looking, so Marge made a cozy for it."

Linnea said...

what on EARTH could possess someone to have that pig in their HOUSE?

Ok, I'll give them the 1st picture. It's just a poorly aligned shot.
But the other 2? Why would you have a pig wearing lipstick in your house? Is this Sarah Palin's place? And what the heck is that cow colored thing in the 3rd kitchen? And I'm sure it's just the perspective, but that photo leads me to believe you can't access the oven because that pole is blocking the door.

In the last picture, I think that the "cow thingy" is not hanging above the stove, but on the cabinets directly in front of the camera. I believe it is a grocery bag holder.

Lipstick on a pig.
Big house.
Alaska.

Almost choked on my morning coffee!

I have naturally tasteful aesthetic senses combined with a tendency to try to overlook others' faults so my brain automatically converts the image from my eyeballs of that pig into a grand piano. If not for sense-charity, we might all become arsonists.

That second house is hideoso. (I think that was a spell from Harry Potter.) That pink pig must store all the pepto-colored paint they used throughout the house. Barf-a-li-cious!

Now I might look past the pink walls if the pig were a "Cow on Parade," like these lovelies http://tinyurl.com/kn3c7y

That pig is not alone in that house in Alaska. Click through all the pictures and you will discover two things: One is that the house is decorated almost exclusively with a color akin to raspberry sherbet, in different paint treatments, no less.

The other is that the paramour of lipsticked pig lurks elsewhere. Wearing a dress.

I couldn't freaking make that up.

The cow parachute in the third picture is baffling, but I suspect taking a midnight pee in the house of Swine might actually scare the wits right out of you.

Angel said...

Land of shrimp, there is also a purple polka-dotted pig in the front garden.

Susanna King said...

I find the cow in the first picture less disturbing than the cemetery-like ambiance of the yard.

Land of shimp said...

Holy spotted Swines, you're right Angel! I'm not sure how I missed that. I mean, it's not everyday that you miss a purple, spotted pig sculpture the size of a Yugo.

LoS:

Not to mention, there's a penguin with what appears to be a tophat and a serving tray (from the angle it's photographed at, I like to think of it as a big cigar) in the dining room.

This has GOT to be Sarah-We-Eat- Therefore-We-Hunt-Palin's Anchorage vacation house...

Regarding the moo cow pic in the pasture:....I'm positive that I see Lucifer's face on her ribcage! Everybody sees Jesus or Mary in their french toast---I see Satan.

Should I be worried?

Is it just me or does it look like those support poles in the last picture are immediately in front of the stove/oven. How on earth are you supposed to use that?

Christina said...

This can't NOT be the Palin residence. Note the seemingly normal room with two twin beds, perfect for a teen right? Note that there is also a playpen,perhaps for the teens new baby?
Although I would have expected to see motivational posters with words like "freedom" and "for the troops!" and "family values!"
And seriously, $1.7mil for a house that looks like all the decor was purchased at Big Lots?!?

Minos said...

Is that an outdoor kitchen? The photo with the cow-bag says "Exterior Front".

Anonymous said...

I so wish these pictures were all from the same house...

Sue T. said...

Susanna K. - the yard IS the only thing of worth. There are remnants of a foundation but nothing else.

The sad thing is the cost for a piece of earth and nothing more. The only way I could think that the lot might be worth the price is if there is access to water. Nothing is mentioned in the listing about that. Sad...

I think it's a cow eggsac.

burhanistan.... you need a blog for me to read to satisfy my craving for your hilarious commentary!!! i always check to see if you are in the comments... LOL!

At first glance, it does seem logical to assume it's Palin's place, but if you read the comments in the listing, you'll find the home's owner actually bought THREE of the painted pigs that were featured in Seattles's "Pigs on Parade" (a communal art project much like Trail of Painted Ponies, that featured painted horses).

So more likely, the pig with the lipstick was one that an artist created for the Pigs on Parade art project (perhaps as a nod to Palin), and this homeowner bought it (proceeds went to The Pike Place Market Foundation), along with 2 others. (the names of the three pigs in the house are "Priscilla Pretty in Pink", "Thrashin' Rasher" & "Pork A Dot" and are available for purchase separate from the house).

mudslicker said...

Was there a "Penguin's On Parade" venue as well?

I really want one that looks like Groucho Marx.

Thanks for the story behind the pigs Anonny. It really did clear up a bit of curious mystery.
