Look closely at the third photo from the bottom on this realtor's website promoting a home for sale. Either the snapshot-taker failed to notice two dogs humping sur l'herbe
, or this is an example of highly sophisticated subliminal advertising strategies in the real estate industry. BoingBoing reader and punster Mike Ransom

Update 2: Reader Paul Camp alerts us to the fact that the realty website has now replaced the XXX photo in the original link with a Photoshop hack job that makes clumsy, guffaw-inducing use of the "blur" tool: Direct link to their revised image.

Simple maybe, but I didn’t […]
