Spite house for a new age -- painted pink, with mocking, cross-eyed, long-eyelash emojis, seemed to punish neighbors in surrounding, dull painted dwellings who ratted out the duplex's short-term rental code violation.

El Porto neighborhood, on 39th St off Highland. Private residences; be quiet and respectful.
2022: No longer emoji spiteful.

Pink Emoji House

The hot pink paint and emojis are gone!

Pink Emoji House

A perfect example of stupid. Perhaps the new benchmark of stupid. Hurry! It's bound to be removed by the hoard of adjacent angry homeowners.

[Vance Erwin, 09/10/2019]

Pink Emoji House is a recent spite painting project commissioned by the owner (who doesn't actually live there) to annoy neighbors who reported the duplex's short-term rental code violation.
