Josie & the Pussycats?

I thought cats don’t like baths.

There’s a bear behind your bare behind!

Killer House

KNIVES!! The photographer made sure to make the knives shiny & bright so buyers would get the point(s). The tag line for this Bisbee, Arizona home: “Take a stab and check out our home. We’re a cut above the rest. Our list price was just slashed.”

Dirty Feet & Fingers

The online photos looked good, especially of the kitchen. So I showed this house to a buyer. Then reality sunk in. The buyer was disgusted by the master bathroom shower. Gross!!

The rest of the house was dirty and cluttered. Here’s a photo of the kitchen light switch. Yuk.
