Issuing a CO on the FailHouse

According to Failblog.org, the architect that named this house plan in his development didn't understand the racial and cultural baggage of = the phrase "porch monkey". He did change the name of the house style, presumably after a tremendous ass-whoopin'.

Sometimes there is simply no limit to the amount of awesome we can mentally process. I should go back to bed, nothing can equal this for the rest of the day.

Oh Paul, I'm right with you. Some people FAIL really hard and really publicly. :-P

Other than the obvious societal issues implied with the title of this house drawing set, who the hell would purchase a house that had the word 'monkey' in its name?

As our late grandmother would say, "Jee-zus GAWD!"

Were she alive today, I'm sure Maw-Maw would have loved--and frequently used--the acronym WTF. WTF certainly applies to this plan name.

Weirdly...my word verification is mistert. I pity the fool who drew up this plan.
