Man Buys Giant Church Organ, Doesn't Know Where to Put

HAMDEN, Connecticut— Local man, Johnson Malone, bought a grand church organ for his small Connecticut home last Wednesday. The organ, which has approximately 11,499 pipes, set Malone back 3.7 million dollars.
            “Yeah it was one of those impulse buys, you know? I saw it and I just had to have to no matter what it cost, ten, twenty, hell even thirty thousand dollars! I was a little surprised when it was $3.7 million, but hey like I said I just had to have it.”
            “You’re not going to have me anymore you dumb #$*!” commented Mrs. Malone about the purchase from the adjoining room.
            As of now Malone isn’t quite sure where he will place the 40 foot tall, 173,000 pound mass of reeds, pipes, and wood. The organ will arrive, unassembled, in 18 different semitrailers. The installation period is expected to require 11 months of expert assembly and several thousand dollars in fees.
            “Eh, I was thinking I could skip out on the whole assembly thing. I can do it myself. Hell, I built Tony’s bed from Ikea, and the directions weren’t even in English! How hard can it be to voice, tune, refine, and assemble 11,499 pipes, install 306 wooden drawknobs, and do whatever else I gotta do. I’ll just get some of the guys from work and we’ll do it in a weekend.”
            As of now Malone is watching the various parts of the organ arrive at his house.      
            “You know, this might not fit in the living room after all. But hey at least we have a bigger piano than the Stanley Morgan next door!”

50 Cent Surprised to Have Net Worth of $100 Million


Today rapper 50 Cent was surprised to discover his net worth is close to 100 million dollars. “Golly, I thought I was worth like three fiddy, maybe like four dollars at most, but one-hundred million? Oh my! I’m surprised as heck!” said the ghetto-born rapper.  
            50 Cent, or Curtis Jackson, has accumulated his massive net worth through a combination of rapping, entrepreneurship, acting, and investing. 50 Cent was very surprised to find out his hard work resulted in the earning of million of dollars.  “I was living out the whole ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’ thing and I thought I would always, well, die tryin’. It was just dreadful, I couldn’t even afford a proper manicure or perm. You know I thought I was so poor I was rapping without a shirt sometimes! But look at me now! I am just happy as a child in a candy shop! Oh look at me, now I’m just blushing up like a cherry!”



            The rapper had reportedly always let his accountant, Larry Schneider, handle his finances, which he himself took little to no interest in. When Mr. Schneider informed the rapper of his wealth for the first time earlier today, which supposedly hit 50 cent harder than a slug.
            “Oh Larry you tease,” said the street-hardened rapper, “you are joshing me! 100 million dollars? No, no, no that’s a fib if I ever heard one.”
            As of now 50 Cent is on a spending spree with his friends in the shopping district of New York. Reportedly, he is also considering changing his name to something more indicative of his wealth.

"So I can star in more movies," Nicolas Cage Comments on Plans to Clone Self


Reports came in Wednesday that actor Nicolas Cage plans to clone himself so that he can take more movie roles. “There are so many roles out there these days, National Treasure 3, Ghost Rider 3, Sorcerer’s Apprentice 2, I mean how’s a guy to decide! This way I won’t have to. And there’s the added bonus that with twice as many roles, I’m sure to land at least one good one.”



            Cage, an actor who has recently run into significant financial troubles, is desperate to find extra sources of income whether it be starring in wacky children’s adventure films or cloning himself.
            Cage will be the first human to undergo the cloning process, which is largely unproven and highly risky.
            When asked about it Cage replied, “Oh well you see, it’s all part of the whole lab monkey gig. You sit there and they inject you with this miscellaneous needle and that untested chemical and then you tell them what it does to you. And then get this, they pay you for it. Yeah, pay you, like real cash! It’s a little scam in the system I discovered a few years back.”
            Nicolas Cage underwent the initial DNA extraction procedure on Wednesday afternoon. Reporters were able to catch up with the actor outside the clinic at a bus stop. “It went really well,” commented the actor, “They made some ‘mistakes’ so my insurance is filling me out a fat payment. I’m really happy about it all. And I’m hoping that I can get the added bonus of a clone. Think of all the work I’ll be able to take in addition to acting: Restaurants, department stores, schools. I’ll really be in the money . . . Hey do any of you have a quarter for bus fare?”
            Researchers say the science behind the cloning process is ‘very iffy’ but that they hope for the best in the end. “Nic’s a tough guy, it’s not like he’s never roughed out some side-effects before, just remember the whole new Rogaine hair chemical fiasco from a few years back. Uck, awful stuff. But Nic took it in stride.”
            Cage will undergo the second part of the procedure on Friday. As of now Cage is looking for extra work since being fired as Starbucks Barista after stealing the tip cup.

Smug College Student Thinks He Has 'Struck it Rich'



College student Brad Stilner is confident he has struck it rich with his new idea. “Yeah, it’s like a website. I can’t say much, it’s still like in the brainstorming phase” said the arrogant teen as he stuffed Doritos into his mouth while sitting on his La-Z-Boy sofa. The student provided no details on the implementation or design of his idea.
“Yup I got a pretty good idea. I’ll be the next Instagram,” smugly said the student while playing the latest Call of Duty. “It’s going to be huge,” he said as he simultaneously placed more Doritos into his mouth.
The young student’s mother was very proud when informed her son had ‘the next big idea’. “He’s always been like that, thinking up ideas! Once I told him to eat his vegetables because there were starving kids in Africa. And you know what he said,? He said ‘It’s not like we could get the vegetables there very easily’. What a smart boy he is, always thinking!”
Although the idea is still completely undeveloped and without any proof that it will work, investors have already started evaluating it. One venture capitalist firm has displayed significant interest in it. “We believe firmly in the success of Brad’s idea. The internet is huge these days and if he says he might do something involving it . . . well, we want in on it.”
When asked about the pressure for him to succeed with his idea Brad responded, “What? My Idea? What are you talking . . . oh yeah, that idea. Yeah, yeah. I’ll get on that soon.”
Friends of the smug and confident teen say they have definitely noticed a change of demeanor in their young, entrepreneuring friend. Reports came in that Brad now wears slightly nicer clothes, slicks his hair back, and is even more dismissive of people than before.
“I’ll have to get ready for my public offering, you know like look good and all. I’ve also kept some notes for when they make a movie about the founding of my company . . . Who do you think will play me? I hope not its not one of those Twilight actors . . .”
Friends and family are still waiting to hear the next big idea which the cocky student claims, “ Is gonna be huge” but as of now he is still waiting for his hot pocket to heat up and for the next round of Team Deathmatch to begin.


Brad is rich now, but why not be rich yourself? Live out a fantasy life as a millionaire at Butlr.com, the Fantasy Millionaire Game!

Local Man Torn Over Country Club Decision, Meanwhile Millions Starve




          Today, while millions of starving souls across the world hungered for the smallest morsel of food, local Connecticut man Johnson Malone pondered which country club to join: The snooty Green Haven or the ‘old money’ Golden Acres. 
    “The steak tartare is really just excellent at Golden Acres, although they do mix rather a weak Manhattan.” commented Malone, a man of thirty-six who has spent years kissing asses and saying he likes it to climb the salary ladder of a local law firm.  While countless tales of unbearable human misery unraveled across the globe, Malone, who has always been a logical man, calmly mulled over a mental list of the pros and cons of each club.
“Well I suppose Mr. Walterson is in Golden Acres, but Green Haven has a 4th of July social ball that is simply to die for,” he said as thousands across the globe suffered in bleary-eyed, hunger-driven fevers.
“But the little weenie hor d'oeuvres are superb at Golden Acres,” whined Malone, “Hmmm, this is going to be a tough one.” Malone spent the early morning debating whether with proper boiling he could eat the rubber sole of his shoe. The Writer’s mistake, rather that was a diseased and emaciated man in Southern India, Malone spent the morning waiting in a coffee line that he silently and angrily declared, ‘too long’, while he pondered whether Green Haven provided club golf shoes or if members were expected to bring their own. “Bringing a big gym bag around with an extra pair of shoes will be a real hassle,” he commented.
Later, as millions doubted the possibility of breakfast the next morning, Malone worried whether the Golden Acres Dining Club had a buffet-style breakfast. “I quite like the portions of a buffet, but I always worry that the chefs might compromise quality for quantity in that situation,” commented Malone as he sped along in his Mercedes.
As of now, Malone is still debating which club to join. Sources say he is leaning towards Golden Acres, but that he is ‘not sure’.

How would YOU live as a millionaire? Would you join a country club? Buy a Ferrari? Take a trip to Paris? Sketch out your own millionaire lifestyle now!

Charles Barkley To Buy NBA Championship Ring


         "These are my new shoes. They're good shoes. They won't make you rich like me, they won't make you rebound like me, they definitely won't make you handsome like me. They'll only make you have shoes like me. That's it."

     Charles Barkley uttered this quote about his new shoes. Another thing they never did was make Barkley win, or at least win a NBA championship. 


       Reports came last week that NBA Great Charles Barkley is trying to buy a NBA championship ring. The 11-time NBA All-Star, 1993 league MVP, 2-time Olympic Gold Medalist, and NBA hall-of-famer never won a championship in his 16 years in the league. To remedy this blemish on his career Barkley offered last Tuesday to buy a championship ring for $5,000,000. “I mean there are suckahs out there who won and ring and didn’t even make 5 mil a single season! I’m giving a ridiculous deal here.”
           
The 6-6 former power forward approached six-time champion Michael Jordan first. After repeated refusal by Jordan, Barkley continued to protest saying, “Ah c’mon Michael”. Barkley, author of several self-help books, did not give up and even sweetened the deal by adding his lifetime supply of Taco Bell 5 Dollar Boxes. Jordan still refused. Barkley did not seem capable of grasping the vast net worth of Michael Jordan and his complete numbness to money. Jordan later accepted the deal only on the terms that Barkley would also take ownership of the struggling Charlotte Bobcats to which Barkley responded, “That’s ridiculous”.
           
Wednesday morning with still no luck, Barkley turned to the rest of world. “C’mon, somebody, puh-lease!” he commented on Wednesday afternoon. Barkley reportedly said he would settle for a NCAA championship ring also.

This is how Charles Barkley lives his millionaire dream. How would you live YOUR millionaire fantasy? Find out now at Butlr.com, the Fantasy Millionaire Game.

Donald Trump Buys Justin Bieber's Hair for $25 Million






Staying in fashion costs money. Last week billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump tried to purchase Justin Bieber’s hair for $25,000,000. Trump reportedly desired the hair to improve his image for the upcoming 2012 presidential election which he plans to run in. Trump hopes to appeal to the young teenage girl audience with the new hairdo. Assistants tried to inform Mr. Trump of the voting age, but long, flowing hair covered his ears.

“I like the hair, I really do. It’s definitely me,” remarked Trump while vainly staring in a mirror and styling it, “it definitely gets me more attention.” Since then the 66 year-old has repeatedly broken out into high-pitched singing, flipped his hair constantly during board meeting, received several record deals, and even won Teen Choice Award. “You know it’s amazing what you can do with just twenty five million dollars,” said Trump about all the changes in his life.

Trumps purchase was in part spurned by the recent firing of his old hair. Earlier last week there were reports of extended late-night meetings in Trump’s New York boardroom. Heated argument could be heard from behind the boardroom’s closed doors. The argument ended when a loud “You’re fired!” was heard. The doors then opened and a visibly disappointed red toupee left the room. A frustrated and bald Trump sat inside the room fuming.

When asked for comments after, the red toupee said, “I knew I wasn’t performing very well, but I had no idea I was about to get the bucket! I mean I covered his head just fine, and now just like this he fires me. God, how am I going to tell Marie about this, I can’t get work again not in this economy!”

            Experts had originally valued the teen sensation’s hair at only 20 million dollars, but a rival bid by balding NBA star Lebron James caused the price to jump. Trump and James reportedly entered into an aggressive bidding war. The NBA MVP backed off only after notoriously bald NBA sharpshooter Ray Allen joined his team. “Imma look real good next to that shiny head,” said James. Trump won the bid and promptly tore the beautiful mess of hair off the teen singer’s head with a smile laugh. Bieber was left bald, but twenty five million dollars richer.

            That’s one millionaire lifestyle, but how would you live yours? Fulfill your own millionaire fantasy at Butlr, the Fantasy Millionaire Game site.

Cost of the Wayne Manor and Batcave


Ever wanted a famous mansion estate with a subterranean superhero lair equipped with all the most modern crime-fighting amenities? Well hope you have over $100 Million then.

The Wayne Manor, home of Batman, which includes a large mansion, 150 acres of land and one Batcave, is priced at $105 million. How exactly did analysts come up with this number? Let’s go through a quick breakdown of the Wayne Manor.

The Wayne Manor includes 11 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 42,500 square feet of land, a pool, a gym, a library, a ballroom, a game-room, a gallery, a multi-car garage, and a laboratory. For the purposes of answering the all important real estate rule of ‘location, location, location,’ it is assumed that Gotham City is Chicago. All these factors price the Wayne Manor house itself to be $35 million. The other $70 million come from the large cave below the house.  


 
The Batcave, a high-tech crime-fighting station large enough to host super computers, tanks, and helicopters, is the ultimate tool for fighting crime. One cannot even hope to fight crime without having one.

In addition to all this, the estate comes with an amiable, yet preachy, elderly British butler. He is impeccably well-mannered and bears an uncanny resemblance to the British actor Michael Caine.

Butlr, The Fantasy Millionaire Game, is offering the WayneManor for a price of $35 Million. The Batcave is priced at only $70 Million extra. Buy them now!

3 Ways to Spend $1,000,000: Dragons, Warriors, and more


What can you do with a $1,000,000 besides buy a house, a new car, and a college education for your child? After this point the list begins to run dry for some prospective millionaires, but I am here to enliven your imagination a bit.  Here are three things you could spend a million dollars on:

Scarecrows are out of vogue. And who’s scared of them anymore? A giant dragon hedge, however . . . now that will scare away more than just crows. You won’t have to worry about sparrows, crusading knights, OR invading armies. No real millionaire fantasy is complete without one of these. In fact a garden without one looks empty and dull.

 
Hover Scooter $13,000
Who still walks? Certainly not a millionaire with any self-worth. Right now, everybody who’s anybody, all the fashionable millionaires, travel by hover scooter. Getting from point A to point B in a stylish way now only costs $13,000! Warning: You may look slightly goofy while riding it.



If your artisan dragon hedges don’t do the trick of scaring people away, then this ancient warrior sworn to protect its master will. This is the most loyal guardian a millionaire could ask for, it will even stay dedicated to your service beyond the grave. Also, it is a nice antique piece for any collection of ancient statues.

How to Spend a Million: 3 Ways to Spend $1,000,000


The majority of us if given such a large sum of money would pay off debts, set aside college funds, and perhaps invest. But that’s dull stuff, so very dreary. So what does one do after that? Well in this post, I hope to provide you with some inspiring ways to spend money as millionaire, whether it be rocket-powered transportation, dancing under the sea, or saving lives.  


So you have a big bag of money? Well let's talk about how you will spend it . . . 

The modern millionaire’s dilemma: “How do I get from one yacht to another in a quick, efficient, and stylish manner”? The answer is very simple, and only $99,500. A jetpack! The Jetlev R200 is a hydro-powered jetpack and perfect for traversing small water-filled with spaces. No millionaire fantasy is complete without it.

Another dilemma of the modern millionaire is the inevitable boredom of disco rooms. Dancing is fun for a while, but then it grows dull. You need something to entertain you while you dance. Well how about a giant aquarium? I mean what’s the fun of being rich if you cannot dance under the swimming colors of an aquarium?

A third dilemma of the modern millionaire: “How can I help the common man”? Well perhaps the best way, is guiding forlorn sailors to the safety of shore. You can purchase a lighthouse and lead a solitary existence being a beacon of hope for those lost at sea (Warning: This is a serious job. Minimal sick days are allowed. One must also possess knowledge of how to change a light bulb).

Who, What, When, Where, How of Buying a RollerCoaster


How do you spend $500,000 wisely these days? An flashy car is always nice, but everyone has one of those. A new house is always nice too, but you need a few million if you want a truly spectacular house. And vacations are nice, but they are far too short-lived. It seems millionaires are at a loss how to spend their money. 


But what about a rollercoaster? You don’t see many of those nowadays! Well if you are interesting in buying a rollercoaster, this will tell you everything you need to know. Rollercoasters range in price, but they usually cost around $500,000. You can find many rollercoasters online. In addition to the cost, you will need to pay for upkeep and repair (You will also need to pay a pimply kid to let people in and out of the ride and work the control panel).
But what type of Rollercoaster do you want? Are you the wild-vertical-drop-type? Or perhaps you’re more of the outrageous-twists which leave you upside down for the majority of the ride type. Or maybe you’re the crazy-twists-that-leave-you-running-for-the-nearest-trashcan type. Either way, there is a rollercoaster waiting for YOU to buy it.
In honor of wild rides and millionaires with hungers for excitement and insanity, Butlr is offering several rollercoasters for sale!

A Picture worth a 288,300 Words

The way people spend their money these days just befuddles my mind. Usually when one of your friends begins a sentence saying, “Yesterday I spent 288,300 dollars on a . . . “ it ends with something like a car. Or a house. Or a jetpack. But how often do you hear that sentence end with, “. . . A piece of comic book art”?

A few days a piece of original ‘Tintin’ art sold for $288,300. It was part of a larger auction that was entirely Tin-Tin themed. This auction amounted to a total of about $800,000. But this is nothing compared to the ‘Tintin’ comic book cover which sold for 1.6 million dollars individually a while back ago.  This was a hand drawn ‘Tintin in America’ cover.
To celebrate the absurd valuation of comic books, Butlr is now offering that very same Tintin rare book cover. Buy one now!

Millionaire Nicolas Cage and his $150,000 Pet Octopus


Octopi are difficult pets to have. They need a spacious home, they are anti-social, and some can be poisonous. These difficulties did not stop big-spender millionaire Nicolas Cage, an actor with a knack for buying bizarre and quirky things, from buying his own octopus. Oddly, his justification for buying the pet octopus was not leisure or enjoyment. Rather he hoped to be able to become a better actor from studying other life-forms. 

The octopus cost $150,000, What a price for a pet! Anyways, this millionaire was fine with the purchase. He still has a net-worth of $30 Million left!

In honor of this Butlr, the Fantasy Millionaire Game, is selling the octopus HERE.

11 Reasons To Hire A Butler


People do too much for themselves these days. Whether its retrieving a cooked hot pocket from a beeping microwave and missing who the killer was on CSI: Miami or having to *scoff* make your OWN breakfast in the morning, life without a butler is a shame! This is supposed to be the modern age, the age of COMFORT right
Well here are 11 Reasons to get a butler. 

1. So you can sit on our arse all day  and watch more television.
Think of all the great television moments you are missing while doing household chores! From the latest discovery on Storage Wars to the newest annoying commercial.

2. To make the neighbors look bad.
Be the envy of your block. The grass will indeed look greener on your side, but that's only because you will be paying someone to MAKE it green.

3. So your garden won’t die. I mean, its not like YOU were going to water it.
Remember that vegetable garden you always mused about last summer? Probably not, but your butler remembers! And he remembered to water and nurture it.

4. So people think you are more important than you actually are.
If you hire someone to do the things you don't to do, just imagine how important the things are that you DO want to do.

5. So you can get in a car and say, “Home, Jeeves”.

6. You have a greater chance of your life being turned into a sitcom.
Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, The Jetsons, etc. Life is simply more interesting with a butler.

7. To have someone shine your shoes for you.
You weren't going to shine them were you?

8. To have some trustworthy to keep your secret alter-ego as a midnight marauding vigilante hero.
Take a lesson from Batman here.

9. If you’re sick of your children you don’t have to take care of them.

Butlers are great at handling brats. Just think about all the bratty, surly, old men who have hired butlers as caretakers. Surely, they can handle your kids.

10.  Who else is going to mix you alcoholic drinks while you sit comfortably in a leather armchair and brood in front of the fireplace.



11. Because who doesn’t like British accents?

A Millionaire's Best Friend: A Tiger


Last week Michael Jackson’s Thriller died. No, not his immortal album, that shall forever live on in pop history. Rather his pet tiger died at the age of 13. In Tiger-years that is a pretty a good, long life!


Thriller was one of many exotic pets the millionaire Jackson had at Neverland Ranch. Among the other were elephants, orangutans, giraffes, flamingos, and many rare reptiles. People speculate that Thriller was one of the more prized animals in the collection hence the name. But there is also speculation that the tiger was a zombie, also a good rationale for the name. Whatever the real reason, Thriller was a popular tiger and attracted many visitors after it was removed from Jackson’s estate.

Michael Jackson’s net worth would amount to $600 Million today. However, the millionaire should be a billionaire being worth 1.5 Billion, but the lifestyle of the rich and famous exacted a heavy toll on his estate. The costs result from luxurious living and lavish spending. Some of the costs include:
$15 Million to buy Neverland Ranch
$5 Million annually for Neverland Ranch’s upkeep
$20 Million to settle lawsuits.
$65 Million for video projects
$12 Million for divorce settlement
$500 Million of debts
And many millions spent on cars, animals, art, and other needless eccentricities. 
So all this weighs Jackson’s supposed 1.5 Billion networth down to a measly $500 million. But not bad. You can learn a lot on how to live lavishly from this millionaire. 

In honor of Thriller's death Butlr is offering the following items:

When Yacht Racing and Car Collecting Get Boring


There comes a point in every millionaire’s life when racing yachts, collecting jets and cars, and owning professional sports teams becomes, well—dull. Boring. Average. So what do you do then? 

Well, there’s a lot of different answers, from finding a spouse thirty years younger, to chartering a flight to space. But one millionaire, or rather billionaire, Larry Ellison, had a different solution to remedy his pedestrian life. He bought a private Hawaiin island, or at least 98% of it. 


But first, let’s look at his life prior to this exciting $500 million purchase. Larry Ellison recently won the America’s Cup sailing race. It cost him $100 to buy and man a worthy yacht for the race. He beat out another billionaire, Ernesto Bertarelli, for first place. He also owns many planes and cars. Some of the highlights include a McLaren F1 and an Italian Marchetti jet plane. He also used to own a ‘mega-yacht’ that leaned more to the side of luxury cruise ship. This yacht had a wine cellar, theater, and even a basketball court and cost over $300 million. 


What I’m trying to say is that Larry Ellison’s millionaire lifestyle was a dull one. There were many just like it. But now, Ellison has added prestige to his reputation as a tycoon.  With the purchase of this $500 million private island adds a special air of megalomaniac power and stature. Owning a big house is one thing, but owning an entire island is something completely different. There can be no richer neighbors, nor even any neighbors Ellison doesn’t like. It’s just Ellison, his money, and his cars. But what do you get when a private island becomes boring

The Doggystyle Millionaire: A Spending Biography of Snoop Dogg


Like he’s told us before, Snoop Dogg always has his mind on his money and his money on his mind. That is, when he’s not rolling down the street in his 1967 Cadillac sipping on gin and juice. 


Snoop Dogg (Calvin Brodaus) is worth $110 Million. He’s not only a playa, but also a big player in the Millionaire’s club. Most rappers plateau quite young. They find themselves broke and forgotten by age 40. Snoop, however, at age 40 is still a multi-millionaire and major celebrity figure.  


So what is Snoop Dogg’s millionaire lifestyle? How does he spend his millions? Besides bling, marijuana, and champagne, Snoop Dogg invests in automobiles, real
estate, and pee-wee football teams.

Snoop owns a 1967 customized Cadillac. Customized in this case means ‘Snoop Dogg’ is written in bling on the front bumper of the Cadillac. He also has a yellow 1967 Pontiac convertible. So what about the year 1967 does Snoop love so much or want to remember? Maybe that Romania and Spain signed a commercial relations agreement? Or maybe he just likes the cars from the year? PersonalIy like to think he is remembering the 100-year anniversary of Canadian independent federation.  But then again, maybe he just likes the car. 


He also has a nice home in Diamond Bar. And his brand of gin? Tanqueray of course. And when he coached his son’s pee-wee football team to a championship he didn’t take them out for a pizza party, he bought them  chrome and gold footballs. And the kids weren’t driven to game by soccer moms in SUV carpools. They were chauffeured in a tricked-out bus. But what better way is their to spend your money than buy outrageous swag for your son's football team?

Gianni Versace was man of fine taste, his finest taste being his hunger for opulent and lavish living. He is now deceased, but his legacy is not dead. His Lake Como villa located in South Beach, Miami is on the market for the price of $125 million. Its contents which included rare art of all kinds have already been auctioned away. 



The house has 10 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. And what would a villa be without a 50 foot pool ornamented with 24-carat gold lining? And swimming is dreadfully dull without mosaics, frescoes, and statues adorning the pool to enjoy. I’ve always said if a pool doesn’t have a mosaic on the bottom then why swim at all? Exercise? Please, I worry about dollar signs and zeroes, not calories and carbs.

The Villa is so full of art that one might think the property belonged to a Roman emperor. Or that perhaps it was decorated after a Napoleonic-scale looting of the Louvre. But this is not the case. Gianni Versace was just rich and had wild imagination when it came to decoration.

The property is 19,000 square feet, underwent a $33 million renovation and expansion, and sits only several paces from Lake Como. Versace Gianni taught many how to be a true millionaire and in some ways defined the lifestyle of the rich and famous. His estate wasn't called the ‘iconic oasis for the rich-and-famous’, for nothing. His home is truly a one of a kind property.

So don’t pass up on this one of kind property! It is on sale in Butlr now, and you wouldn’t want to let any other lords or ladies beating you to the chase!
