I’m not sure that’s what they mean when they talk about “going green”

By Christa Terry

Wow…just wow

For a mere $289,000, you can own the Jolly Green Giant’s childhood home!

  1. LadySun Says:

    Was that a practical joke? I mean, seriously. The basement window is green, and the stairs have what looks like footprints all in them…

  2. Jennie Says:

    A color blind contractor and “oops!” paint from the home center. Always a dangerous and tasteless combo.

  3. Twistie Says:

    The sad thing is I know where that house is.

    OTOH, it would be hard to do a worse exterior paint job, so the neighbors will probably thank whoever moves in the moment the prep work starts.

  4. Never teh Bride Says:

    Ladysun: You should see some of the houses you come across around here. I’ve always loved how New Englanders aren’t afraid to use color, but sometimes the colors they choose are just soooooo wrong!

    Jennie: HA!

    Twistie: Way to look on the bright side of life! I just can’t believe someone actually thought “bright green with all dark green trim” would be a fine idea.

    Awwww! A pod to put your little peas in!
