Bad Advertising.

Are you kidding me? I get junkmail from a title research company that can't spell forty correctly. The slightest error in title research can be totally damaging to future owners of the property!

Stay the fuck away from these guys!

Adventures in business names.

Are you kidding me? P.P. Circle? With these graphics? I can just see the slogan now...

"Touch base with P.P. Circle. We'll handle your package gently."

Architect's Construction Graffiti!

Amazing, the architect clearly was trying to entertain the poor asshole (me) doing takeoffs on the reflected ceiling plan. This was indicated as FAC everywhere else, but there's no question that this says FAG.

Happy last day of Passover!

If Noah drove a hoopty rather than a boat, and filled it full of women rather than pairs of animals, I'm sure that his boat would have been *ahem* christened, PIMP-ARK (would be a great vanity plate, too).

I had to do a little etymology on the term "hoopty" for this post. Apparently, Hoopty is the corrupted homonym (If you're a regular reader of construction graffiti, I'm sure you read that as HOMO-nym)of "Coupe De" - a shortened version of the popular Cadillac, "Coupe DeVille". Basically a hoopty is a piece of shit that the deluded owner treasures as his baby.

You may now end your week vacation from fun (eschewing beer & whiskey for maneshewitz)

I know. It's not that impressive, but it's clearly making fun of someone on our jobsite. I'll get a picture for comparison as soon as I figure it out.

Bills Graffiti

I'm sure that red-blooded Buffalo, NY would be so proud to know that there is a hunk of veal in my Brooklyn grocer shaped exactly like their team logo.

Bieber Graffiti

I'm so sad I didn't think of this first. Some dude (I'm guessing it had to be a guy) decapitated the cardboard Justin Bieber at the United Artists Court Street Stadium 12.

No idea why he didn't keep the scalp.

Curbed was right.

Mill Basin does take the cake for some of the craziest looking places in Brooklyn. Given that I troll StreetEasy daily for new listings, it was only a matter of time before I found an addition to Curbed's piece.

Not only does the listing boast an unhealthy amount of symmetry, "mohagany" steps, and a sweet water feature in the backyard, it also appears they hired the graphic designer that the Cash Money Millionaires use for photo retouching. Look at how the place glows! Bling-Bling with my cherrywood floors, beeeeitch!
