'Law and Order' real estate mashup mocks 'The Hunt'

If imitation is the finest form of flattery, mockery might also be a sign that you’re doing something right — or have at least succeeded in occupying a little corner of popular culture.

How else to explain the New York Observer’s mashup of The New York Times’ “The Hunt” real sestate column (home of “the most unnecessary real estate story to ever come out of the Grey Lady,” chides the Observer’s Drew Grant) with the iconic NBC cop show, “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.”

An imaginary “Law and Order” episode scripted by Grant has Ice-T and detectives Benson and Rollins arguing the finer points of co-ops, comps and prewar restorations with a jet-setting couple looking for a home in the Financial District. Enjoy. Source: observer.com.
