Get Free Avocado Toast for a Year … If You Buy This House

There are plenty of benefits that come with buying your own home, but rarely do they include complimentary breakfast. Still, a real estate company in Australia is trying to woo young professionals with townhouses that come with a year’s worth of avocado toast, according to Mashable.

The townhouses, located in a Brisbane suburb called Sherwood, are in a prime downtown location that’s surrounded by coffee shops. Where, in fact, you can enjoy avocado on toast. The listing even includes the above picture of toast, in case you need a visual. Sadly, the offer only extends to one piece of toast per weekend, it says:

Enjoy the local coffee trail and discover Gas Espresso, Three Girls Skipping, Annana's, Goodness Gracious—to name a few, and to help with the budget we are including 12 months free avocado on toast once a weekend at your favorite café.

Doesn't this living room scream "Eat a messy breakfast of green fruit here!" to you?

Avocado toast, a fantastic breakfast no matter where you live, is particularly popular in Australia. Last fall, a local magazine columnist made himself Brunch Enemy No. 1 by complaining that young people these days spend all their money on mashed avocado and feta on toast instead of saving for a deposit on a house. The BBC later calculated that it would take sacrificing more than 3800 avocado toasts (estimated at $22 in Australia, or about $16 in the U.S.) to save enough for a 10 percent down payment on a two-bedroom house in the Sydney area.

Apparently, real estate agency Ray White Sherwood wants to make sure young people can have their toast and eat it too. Sure, the townhouses cost almost $439,000, but think of the money you’ll save on brunch!

Unwinnable Video Game Challenges You to Keep a Shopping Mall in Business
"American Mall," Bloomberg
"American Mall," Bloomberg

Shopping malls, once the cultural hub of every suburb in America, have become a punchline in the e-commerce era. There are plenty of malls around today, but they tend to be money pits, considering the hundreds of "dead malls" haunting the landscape. Just how hard is it to keep a mall afloat in the current economy? American Mall, a new video game from Bloomberg, attempts to give an answer.

After choosing which tycoon character you want as your stand-in, you're thrown into a mall—rendered in 1980s-style graphics—already struggling to stay in business. The building is filled with rats and garbage you have to clean up if you want to keep shoppers happy. Every few seconds you're contacted by another store owner begging you to lower their rent, and you must either take the loss or risk them packing up for good. When stores are vacated, it's your job to fill them, but it turns out there aren't too many businesses interested in setting up shop in a dying mall.

You can try gimmicks like food trucks and indoor playgrounds to keep customers interested, but in the end your mall will bleed too much money to support itself. You can try playing the bleak game for yourself here—maybe it will put some of the retail casualties of the last decade into perspective.

It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood for fans of Mister Rogers, as Funko has announced that, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, the kindest soul to ever grace a television screen will be honored with a series of Funko toys, some of them limited-edition versions.

The news broke at the New York Toy Fair, where the pop culture-loving toy company revealed a new Pop Funko! in Fred Rogers’s likeness—he’ll be holding onto the Neighborhood Trolley—plus a Mister Rogers Pop! keychain and a SuperCute Plush.

In addition to the standard Pop! figurine, there will also be a Funko Shop exclusive version, in which everyone’s favorite neighbor will be wearing a special blue sweater. Barnes & Noble will also carry its own special edition, which will see Fred wearing a red cardigan and holding a King Friday puppet instead of the Neighborhood Trolley.

Mister Rogers’s seemingly endless supply of colored cardigans was an integral part of the show, and a sweet tribute to his mom (who knitted all of them). But don’t go running out to snatch up the whole collection just yet; Funko won’t release these sure-to-sell-out items until June 1, but you can pre-order your Pop! on Amazon right now.
