    Most of these houses are awful.

  • Flootie McTootie

    Justifiable arson is a thing, right?

  • dork

    the trappings of success

    funny how this was not in my issue…

    I can’t believe how horribly tacky every one of those houses is. They just scream “Look at me, I want everyone to see how much money I have, yet how little taste I have”. I would honestly be embarrassed to live in any of those places.

    grotesque display of new money. Would NEVER live in the burbs. All these homes are tacky especially the versailles/greek monstrosity. No amount of money can buy taste or class. C
