One easy prediction: They will never get the accents right.

Ancient,

How true; Locust Valley Lockjaw is easily parodied, never reproducible.

Browsing the realtor's virtual tour photos, I find it funny that in photo 51, the photographer decided to photoshop the decorative fireplace screen to remove the six panel decorative feature in the center, however, it is clearly visable in the reflection in the glass table top. Also, did anyone else notice the ceiling lamp fixtures' reflection in the screen look like two eyes looking back at you from the back of the fireplace? Creepy for all those haunted house photo people.
