Somebody got the memo! Our favorite eyesore—ERRR, “Mysterioursly [sic] private and breathtaking” beauty dropped the price for the second time in 22 days.

And the agent seems particularly proud of the seller’s abject failure—ERRRR, generosity. To wit: "MAJOR PRICE REDUCTION ONE MILLION DOLLARS!"

In some circles, lopping off a million dollars from the original asking price would signify a desire to get serious about selling or at least a willingness to negotiate. I’m not in that circle.

No, considering the original asking price was a trust fund-busting $3,250,000, all the million-dollar reduction makes me think is, “A good start for a petulant, greed-faced ignoramus.”

In fact, I’d be willing to bet you see a price increase in spring of 2009. If they were truly serious about selling, then how do you explain the 438 days it took to finally scalp a million clams from the asking price?

Slow learners?

Nah, I’m sticking with petulant, greed-faced ignoramus.

But if I’m wrong and these latest price reductions do indeed signify a sudden, legitimate desire to accept reality and do what it takes to offload their ailing Asian-inspired albatross, then welcome to the real world, pal!
