Butterscotch Muffins And Property Prices

Recommended Posts

The muffin man knows his muffins are still fresh, just as the sellers know their homes are still okay. But the muffin man also knows he has to sell his muffins. A muffin that hasn’t sold by five o’clock comes down in price because of two factors – public perception and economic reality.

And that’s the same situation that homesellers face today. If a property has not sold within five weeks, it’s considered stale. In order to make a sale, the asking price has to be reduced. It's just economic reality.

so the rule of 5 works in this case too.

2004,muffins nice and hot and everyone wants one for lunch...so pay top dollar.

...ovens work overtime to fill the need and produce too many

....by 5pm(2009),there are some cool on the outside(fluffy on the inside) ones left and all the punters have gone home....erm.....if they still have one.

...but the cool ones are going at half-price....so I'm happy to stock up then....besides the general public scoffed all the muffins too quickly and is throwing up in the toilet just like someone with bulimia.

"Stale" definitely sounds like a good word to describe the current housing market.

...is that a new buzzword?...will that be the one that sits when the whols market has gone a bit "crusty"...so to speak.

The muffin man is seated at the table in the laboratory of the utility muffin

Research kitchen... reaching for an oversized chrome spoon he gathers an

Intimate quantity of dried muffin remnants and brushing his scapular aside

Procceds to dump these inside of his shirt...

He turns to us and speaks:

Some people like cupcakes better. I for one care less for them!

Arrogantly twisting the sterile canvas snoot of a fully charged icing

Anointment utensil he poots forths a quarter-ounce green rosette (oh ah yuk

Yuk... let’s try that again...!) he poots forth a quarter-ounce green rosette

Near the summit of a dense but radiant muffin of his own design.

Later he says:

Some people... some people like cupcakes exclusively, while myself, I say

There is naught nor ought there be nothing so exalted on the face of god’s grey

Earth as that prince of foods... the muffin

(Frank Zappa - The Muffin Man)
