Unless it's a hoax, but the video is still kind of remarkable

(Newser) – There's not taking the breakup well, and there's this. A man in Germany who has split with his wife sawed their possessions in half and is now selling them on eBay, reports the Local. He even documented the actual sawing in a YouTube video that has more than 3 million views. The stuff he cut in half ranges from the big (a car and a couch) to the small (a smartphone and a teddy bear). And each has a bitter product description. On that teddy bear, for instance, with a translation from BGR.com: "Although she doesn’t need a stuffed animal to snuggle, there are affectionate fellow workers for that.” The top bid on the bear was $102.

"My wife left me after 12 years of marriage to be with a friend," the man identified only as Martin tells Metro UK. "I was really angry, so cut up everything and sent her half. I put the rest on eBay as a joke and a message for Laura. Now it’s everywhere on the Internet, it’s crazy." There's no word from Laura. The story first gained steam on Reddit, notes the Cult of Mac, which isn't entirely convinced the tale is legit. "Either way, the YouTube video posted with the items is both fun and painful to watch." (Click to read about five unusual factors that could raise your chances of divorce.)
