"Knight views" - MLS Bloopers - Is There A Chink in YOUR Armor?

By
Real Estate Agent with Sotheby's International Realty BRE # 01362887

Riddle: Why did the chicken fall down in the middle of the road?
(A.) Too many margaritas at the Corn Coop?
(B.) He was auditioning for a part in The God-fodder?
(C.) He was laughing so hard after reading the MLS that he passed a kidney stone?

If you guessed “C,” welcome back to this week’s blooper blog. For a good laugh, check out these eggs that were laid:

First Came the Egg

“Do not go beyond dead end” (It seems your career already has.)

“Blonds to be installed” (Whispered Harry Reid to his cronies while lounging in the Senate jacuzzi.)

“Hatting bad – needs update” (Chortled members of Britain’s Fourth Estate when reviewing the Royal Wedding Photos.)

“Coffee & Brownie served” (Won’t the threads of the Brownie uniform get caught in my teeth?)

“View of Dodder Stadium” (Sign at Medicare Office.)

Next Came the Fowl

“EZ sell - why swat?” (I’ll tell you why – because I’d love it if a man rappelled down my wall!)

“Just pass underpuss” (Not without a Hazmat suit I won’t!)

“Nice knight views” (Intoned King Arthur of West Hollywood when Sir Lancelot bent over to pick up his sword.)

“Has gob to go!” (Have you tried NyQuil for your loogie, Larry?)

“Pool, but no tens” (Oh, so they've eliminated your IQ group?)

Breaded and Dipped

“Over-sized shouter in bathroom” (How did Gov. Christie get stuck in your bathroom?)

“Soon will be done done” (Let me guess – your brain after a six-pack?)

“This pig needs lipshit” (Requirement # 1 for a seat in Congress.)

“Submit hardshit letter” (This must be a new process of elimination.)

Beak-First Into the Fryer

“Submit before labor” (Something tells me that gong has been banged…)

“Dong driveway” (Uh, does it get hard if you park on it?)

 

That’s it for this week, folks. Remember: spell well, and sell!

PLEASE NOTE: There will be no Blooper Blog next week, as I will be in Hong Kong, but  I promise to post again on Friday, Oct 12. Have a great week!

*NOTE: If you like humor, please SUBSCRIBE - the Blooper Blog comes out every Friday!

Gwen, it looks like there may be a constipation issue with that group under "Breaded and Dipped."  Shouting, done, done, lipshit, hardshit letter (And we thought the bank would would only let you short sale in your were in financial trouble.  Who knew?).  Yep, a buyer might want to wait until that seller finally gets through that download before entertaining the powder room.  Happy Sunday!

Mike, there does seem to be a bowel theme going on here. Of course, agents will do anything to squeeze out a sale :-)

Have fun in Hong Kong, you can probably bring back some translations that make even your normal blog offerings seem tame.  Oct 19th is a magical day for me also; my first and last day on Active duty with the Army, although many moons apart and long, long ago!

Gwen- I'm always saying that when I want a good laugh, I look at MLS photos.   Thanks for your weekly chuckle. I mentioned you in one of my posts this week!!!

Hello Gwen,

These are all great, but I particularly like "Submit hardshit letter" - actually describes what some of these letters are worth!

Lisa, I never thought of it that way. Maybe that wasn't a blooper after all. Maybe it was a tired banker going for a moment of honesty. Oh, wait, I think I slipped into a parallel universe for a moment there...

Good morning Gwen,

That's a good one, we all slip into that parallel universe sometimes.  Now, go enjoy Hong Kong - have a fabulous trip!

Thank you, Lisa. I got in last night - it was fabulous!

 

Michael, you sound as if you know this from experience :-)

 

Dick, I had fun with that one...but I had to work hard to control myself!

 

 Jill, I just returned from Asia- and I am so jet lagged I feel as though I'm the one who is breaded and dipped!
