Wisconsin parents are mocked for selling a house with ‘Welcome to POUNDTOWN’ sign above their bed

One Wisconsin couple got a bit carried away hanging cutesy signs around their home, going way beyond the clichéd ‘live, laugh, love’ and erecting a sign that reads ‘Welcome to Poundtown’ directly above their bed.

The unidentified couple is now selling the four-bedroom, three-bathroom house in Onalaska, but kept all of their signs — including the PG-13 one — in place when staging the home for real estate photos.

The bizarre design choice — particularly in a home with children — has left social media users in stitches.

The master bedroom in the 3,600-square-foot home is otherwise normal-looking, done in grays and whites with a homey feel.

But above the headboard — which itself has an intricate carved design — is a rectangular black-and-white sign that reads: ‘Welcome to POUNDTOWN.’

It’s not the only sign in the bedroom — there are also ones reading ‘his only’ and ‘this is us’ — but it’s the only sexually-charged one in the whole home.

While signs that the couple favors can often be found in stores like HomeGoods, Marshall’s, TJ Maxx, and Michael’s, it seems unlikely that the ‘poundtown’ sign was found at any of these places.

Etsy does have several signs with those words but in different fonts. This couple may have had theirs custom-made.

The living room appears to have the most signs of all, including ‘gather’ and ‘gather together,’ as well as both a sign and a pillow that say ‘blessed.’

There is another ‘this is us’ sign, plus ones that read ‘welcome to our beautiful chaos,’ ‘you, me, and the kids,’ ‘party of five,’ and ‘welcome to our crazy fun loud happy home.’

Also abundant in the home are freestanding ampersands, symbols that stand for the word ‘and.’ It’s unclear what context they are being used in in the home.

In fact, plenty of commenters were more in awe of the whole effect than just the poundtown sign.

‘What in the Chip and Joanna Gaines is going here,’ one wrote, while another said, ‘This house talks too much.’

‘I like to think this is the work of a house stager who is going through some sort of crisis,’ quipped one more.
