Making Fun of the Rich

This house is for sale in the Chattanooga area for 4.9 million dollars.

To which I can only say one thing: "Suck it Beverly Hills!"

You know you have too much money when a helicopter is required to get a complete view of your house.

The living room has a very modern feel. If your last name is Flintstone or Rubble.

The kitchen is heavily laden with that wonderful, finger print attracting substance know as stainless steel. Ideal for a kitchen if you're not the one cleaning it.

A round bedroom. If only it rotated.

With so many chairs, I am gonna assume this must mean the house was built as a refuge for orphaned children, probably with cancer. The owners are now selling it because they have managed to place all the poor, parentless children with families. I am sure this is correct because why else would someone need so much space for a single family.

Is anyone else thinking "Beam me up Scotty" right now?

White chairs in the dining room. The help must just LOVE these people.

And white chairs in the living room.

The following must be imagined as being said in the voice of Thurston Howell III: "Muffy darling, I don't know WHY the help keeps quitting. After we bought those black mastiff pups and had the red wine gala to celebrate, they all just left! Makes absolutely no sense to me. Oh bother Muffy, I just spilled my chardonnay"

Because they wanted to recreate the look of the Northgate library in their own home. (This is only funny if you live in Hixson Tennessee)

The house is described as being designed with Frank Loyd Wright influences. I have been to many FLW houses in my time and was not impressed. Very poor tippers.

Roman pillars... so this must be the vomitorium?

Ok now I hate these people. An indoor pool.

This view makes me feel less bitter. It's looking a little Holiday Inn-ish from this angle.

And by the way, Capitalism: A Love Story is playing this week at both the Rave and the Bijou. Saw it yesterday and loved it!

Hi Alice, I am hoping you mean heads up about the Michael Moore movie and not because you are in the market to buy a 4.9 million dollar house : D

a least there seems to be a lot of windows to view the peasants working in the yard...oh my...why do they build them that big?

e said...

That is one large McMansion...more money than sense, I think. Thanks for the Capitalism trailer.

Your commentary on the house is really funny. You'd be great on Jon Stewart!

DineometerDeb said...

Well California Girl, I would love to be on Jon Stewart. And that sounds a little inapproprate, so cool! : D

alice said...

Well, I'm not in the market for a $4.9 million house (especially one that is so icky!), but I'm always up for some snarky commentary about such a beast!

(And it's always nice to be reminded about what Michael Moore's latest!)

The kitchen is so bit I'd be afraid of getting lost when heading for the fridge :-)
