Betsy DeVos's Summer Home Is Basically The McMansion From Hell

"A scoop of vanilla ice cream is merging with Scrooge McDuck's money piles to form an eldritch hellscape."

Hey, so you probably know a thing or two about Betsy DeVos, the current Secretary of Education.

But you might not know that she has an actual, honest-to-God vacation home that makes your local Costco look like a dollhouse.

Yes, vacation home! That means she has at least one other property that is likely larger than this!!!!!!

At first glance, it looks like your average cartoon billionaire's dream shack, but upon closer inspection, there is a lot going on, and most of it is bad.

It's like a real-life house from the Life board game on steroids. It's like a child's drawing of what a rich person's house would look like if the rich person lived in the clouds. It's like if all of the houses in the town from The Truman Show melded together and became haunted.

Apparently, the DeVoseseseseseses built the "cottage", in the town of Holland, Michigan, in 2010, and caused quite a stir in doing so.

"For months, cars have slowed along South Shore Drive as gawkers have followed the construction of the DeVos home, the biggest house in Holland, if not Ottawa County," Grand Rapids News said at the time.

Seven years later, pictures of the manse have made it onto Twitter, where people are having a grand old time with them.

They're fairly certain they've seen something like it...somewhere...

They're trying to guess HOW they ended up with such a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.

They've noticed its distinct architectural features.

They're getting awfully excited figuring out how it even happened.


Oh, and don't worry, it most definitely has not been embraced by locals.
