This @StuckHouseATX parody account is sure to give you a laugh

It was only a matter of time.

For four days in a row, this house has been stuck in the middle of East Live Oak Street in South Austin, causing a traffic nightmare for nearby residents and an abundance of jokes, and now the house has its own Twitter account: @StuckHouseATX.

As evidenced by the famed Austin Cobra, the Jade Helm Cobra, the Austin Mongoose and of course, Evil MoPac, nothing is too sacred for Austin’s Twitter jokesters.

The house, which was being moved from Austin to Lockhart when it hit a utility pole and became stuck on Saturday, is proving to be a pain to move. The moving company responsible for the house obtained the necessary permit to relocate the temporary roadblock, but as of Tuesday afternoon, no work had been done on the house.

If it isn’t removed by Tuesday night, National Night Out could be extremely interesting for Travis Heights residents.

The people who live in the neighborhood may not be laughing, but at least this whole thing has given the rest of the city a good chuckle. After all, we should count our blessings: At least the house didn’t get stuck on I-35.
