Bus Driver! Move That Bus! And Now Bring It Back Because I Think We Need to Live In It!

So a home that those do-gooders at Extreme Makeover Home Edition built in 2005 is now facing foreclosure. Thanks Ty. Here's what the article had to say:

"The house was built in January 2005, after Atlanta-based Beazer Homes USA and ABC's "Extreme Makeover" demolished their old home and its faulty septic system. Within six days, construction crews and hoards of volunteers had completed work on the largest home that the television program had yet built.

The finished product was a four-bedroom house with decorative rock walls and a three-car garage that towered over ranch and split-level homes in their Clayton County neighborhood. The home's door opened into a lobby that featured four fireplaces, a solarium, a music room and a plush new office.

Materials and labor were donated for the home, which would have cost about $450,000 to build. Beazer Homes' employees and company partners also raised $250,000 in contributions for the family, including scholarships for the couple's three children and a home maintenance fund."

I'd totally take the kids scholarship money. If that didn't work I'd call Oprah and demand she give me money. If that didn't work I'd turn my wife into the porn industry and use my kids as drug mules. There would be no way I'd give up that house. Screw you, Ty. Screw you and that damn megaphone.

Source It Up!
