Hell hath no fury like, well, like a guy with the means to buy the house next door to his ex-wife and the lover with whom she allegedly cheated, and it probably also doesn't have Alan Markovitz's vindictive creativity, either: Seems the Detroit-area man then had a 12-foot statue of a middle finger built at his new digs, reports Fox 2. Then—because, really, why do things halfway?—Markovitz lit up his creation with a spotlight, lest his ex forget the giant bird being flipped her way when the sun's not shining. Markovitz, who owns three strip clubs in Detroit, says that he thought his shrine would fly under the radar, which it did ... until his ex's daughter tweeted a photo of it. Click over to Fox 2 to get a look, or here for more adventures in bird-flipping. (Read more middle finger stories.)
