I’ve already shared with you one of my favorite blogs – Cake Wrecks. Wreckporters scour their local supermarkets, and Flicker, looking for submissions. I don’t know what it is about this area, but I’ve never seen a wreck in real life, except my godmother’s pile-of -poop-complete-with swarming-flies-wedding cake (oh yes, I wish I hadn’t packed away my photos in preparation for moving, don’t you?). It never ceases to make me laugh, and sometimes even guffaw. Trust me, no one looks pretty when they guffaw.
A few weeks ago a friend turned me onto another site that has made it’s way into my reader. It’s a similar type theme blog, but instead of Cake Wrecks it features house listing wrecks. It’s Lovely! I’ll Take It! posts listing photos that make you wonder at the sanity – and commitment to selling – of the people who chose them as representations of their property. I’ve seen things that no prospective home buyer should.
I was lucky enough to find a listing that was so vile for so many reasons (not the least of which is the nudie shot of the realtor on his website) I had to submit it. I’m happy but not surprised that they featured it today.
Go check it out, and while you’re there check out some of the archives. And please, if you’re ever going to take photos of your bathroom in hopes of selling your house, please flush.
