For sale: delightful 4BR, slightly cursed

Every once in a while, I hear copywriters complain about some “impossible mission,” like crafting a catchy slogan for a corrugated-tin supplier or something. So let us all take solace in Patrick Murray, the real-estate agent tasked with selling a Rhode Island home plagued by vultures. As the article puts it, “The previous owners blamed the birds for polluting their well, scaring their children and causing various illnesses.” But Murray has stepped up to the plate, advertising it as a potentially excellent “bird-watching bed-and-breakfast establishment.” How’s that for glass half full? Of putrid, carrion-tainted well water? Via Fark.
