Here’s what JW originally sent to me:

Is that a chimney or are you glad to see me?

The first picture has an angled shot to emphasize the fact that it has a tall chimney.

Indeed that is a pretty… uh… impressive package of a photo. But let’s dig into the details. In particular, let’s find out more about this “HUGE Price reduction” (why is everything about size in this listing?)

I’m not sure I’d call that HUGE, but for the Real Bay Area, even $1 of reduction is huge. Hey Belmont… take it easy on these cuts. It doesn’t make you look good.

I’m going to bet that this fireplace is a secret passage to a magical place. One where houses will appreciate 15% year over year in Millbrae.

Um…. so… yeah… there’s this floating desk….

Uh… yeah… so there’s this jail for toddlers…

… and you reach it all by climbing the ladder out of the tub!

What the heck??
