    The "have a look at this!" thread II 5th Aug 11 at 10:16 AM
    Official MSE Insert:

    Thanks to Grimbal for starting this thread, where compulsive Rightmove browsers share their funniest finds. Scroll down for Playboy mansions, unusual extensions, toilets in wardrobes and mysterious presences under bedcovers.

    Back to the original post...

    Thought I'd start off a new thread as the other one was getting to be pretty long. The old thread can be found here.

    How about starting up a thread dedicated to the interesting properties that we come across in our searches ?

    I'm guessing these guys don't invite their granny over to watch TV

    Who ever decided it was acceptable to have the entrance to one bedroom through a toilet?

    Spot the anatomically-correct male lion[1].


    [1] I assume, not being acquainted with a lion's intimate anatomy; they tend not to appear on the Yorkshire Vet Christmas Castration Special.
