Twitter Thread Gives Mind-Boggling Tour Of A House That Is Not What It Seems

Remember when grownups used to say "Don't judge a book by it's cover"? Well, the metaphor is especially true for this basic-looking home that's anything but. Twitter user @frazierapproves shared a very special listing yesterday for a home just outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Introducing it as the greatest house ever, @frazierapproves takes us on a twitter thread tour that reveals the cookie-cutter house boasts a lovely yard - and an incredibly zany interior. We don't want to spoil it for you, but have you ever wished for a beach in your basement? Apparently these homeowners did. Their asking price? A veritable bargain at $159,000. Enjoy the roller coaster ride.

Vornado's 'Penn15' Tower Brings Out Twitter's Inner 12 Year Old

Good news for immature people: A new iteration of New York City's Hotel Pennsylvania redevelopment has once again brought attention to the skyscraper's exceedingly ridiculous name. the proposed skyscraper's name, Penn15, was announced this time last year.  But the moniker, which hearkens back to middle school penis humor, is just now receiving a lot of mischievous attention after an incredulous tweet from Noah Hurowitz went viral. 

Most of the social media response comes from people who were definitely in the "Pen15 club." And they can't believe that Vornado Realty Trust's marketing team - or the architects - would be so daft to name the phallic tower after, well, a phallus. For all we know this is all an elaborate marketing scheme to draw attention the the behemoth. But we're still enjoying the laughs.
