Anthropomorphic

I saw a house for sale today. The yard sign had one of those little tack on signs on top, the ones that usually say something like "Great Upgrades!" or "Price Reduced!". This one said "I’m beautiful inside!" I think that's hilarious. They anthropomorphized the house to sound like a desperate, whiny teenager that can’t get a date. I can just picture it with pimples on the stucco and braces on the front door, whining “Why don’t any of the buyers like me? I’m beautiful on the inside!”

Maybe next week it’ll say "I have a great personality!" or "My owner says I’m a catch!" or "My builder says I am the coolest house on the block!"

I think you just described my online dating profile. [sigh] Back to the drawing board, I guess...
