Believe it or not!

There used to be a section in the newspaper that drew my attention, News of the Weird. I would say this story qualifies, and I am embarrassed to say that it happened in my town.

Hit him where it hurts, in the wallet or in the groin, that's what most scorned wives would do. Lorena Bobbitt bobbed it, and many other women are behind bars because they committed a crime of passion in the heat of the moment.

In a very serene neighborhood, in a good part of town, as most folks were settling in for the evening, neighbors heard an explosion and ran outside. Apparently a neighbor woman who had caught her husband cheating, dragged his recliner outdoors and blew it up. Kaboom! Luckily he wasn't in it.

Ask any police officer...domestic calls are the worst ones to handle.

Wow...just his recliner? haha. It is a tough situation to be in and how you handle it is anyone's guess. There will probably be a "weird things" reality show on soon. Or is there already? ;-)

Not sure about the recliner, but if the TV remove was in it ... well, that would hurt! LOL

To borrow a line from Nancy Kerrigan: "WHYYYYYYYY?"

Why did the recliner have to suffer for HIS wrongs? A recliner is a terrible thing to waste. I feel faint.

Oh my gosh, Linda.
That wife who blew up her husband's recliner gives new credence to someone who is "off her rocker." ha ha ha

If hubby had been in it, he'd be singing "Fly me to the moon."

I think that column in the newsapper must have been quite entertaining. Thanks for sharing. Susan

Actually happened in this town. Hubby was lazy and let kids be wild while wife worked. She caught his recliner empty, dragged it out of the trailer, and set 'er afire!

Lucky for HIM. Unlucky for her...

That's funny. Strange how she picked his recliner! Perhaps it was one that he was really, really fond of. As others have said above, at least he wasn't in it! Eeek!

Val's comment cracked me up - a recliner is a terrible thing to waste. I feel faint. HA. Boy could I tell you a story or two!

We used to live in Thailand, where men take on second wives, and many others on the side. Doing a 'Lorena Bobbit' is not unusual there. Unfortunately, some wives do not wish their husbands a 'speedy recovery' and use helium balloons to make sure there is no 'evidence' for doctors to work with.
True and weird!! :)
