Margaret Schulte and Barry Stellrecht write:

We tend to drive a lot on back roads, and one of the things we've noticed all across the USA are the elaborate, landscaped gates with fancy subdivision names -- and nothing behind them. This one, which is in coastal North Carolina, is offering a free boat "with homesite purchase."

As a wacky couple who eschews living in a house and lives on a boat anyway, we thought it was particularly funny. We'll take a free boat, but you can keep the homesite!
