Inspired by the not-so-unusual tale of the house at 2524 McLendon St. in Brentwood (which was apparently renovated, sold, and then demolished just last month), commenter Jimbo posted this challenge to Swamplot readers — which has so far gone unanswered:
Is there a suitable adjective for the activity of renovating a house to flip only to have the new owner demo it immediately?
An adjective? We’d settle for a noun.
It’s not Sisyphean because I’m sure they made money but there must be some fancy Greek mythology parallel for it.
Yeah, try Greek — or maybe Aztec . . . or some term from the mortuary business, or . . . Ayn Rand?
