Man Buys House Next to Ex-Wife and Erects Giant Middle Finger Toward Her Home – Crafty or Classless? [POLL]


“Revenge is a dish best served cold.” Or so goes the saying.

And when you throw a little money in the mix along with a bit of creativity, the results could be either hilarious or nerve wracking.

One metro Detroit businessman, seeking revenge on his cheating ex wife, bought the house next to the one she presently occupies, and erected a giant hand with an extended middle finger facing her back yard.

Get the message across some? I think. But I’m sure there have to be a few who’d think it classless.

According to this:

In Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, Alan Markovitz, not satisfied with expressing his distaste for his ex-wife in just words, has bought and moved into a home that sits right next door to a house that’s occupied by…his ex-wife.

That’s funny enough, but the cherry on top of this cupcake is an almost 12-foot high statue of a middle finger Markovitz put in his back yard, pointed toward his former love and her new boyfriend.

And also! It has a spotlight that illuminates it during the evening.

(A local TV station) wasn’t able to get the ex-wife on the horn, but did speak with Markovitz. He told them that the plan was to get even with the new boyfriend, because two had allegedly had an affair while she was still married to (Markovitz). He also told them that it wasn’t his intention for this to be public and that it only spread after his ex-wife’s daughter posted a picture on her Twitter account.

A private message, however, would be out of character for Mr. Markovitz. He’s quite the deal in Detroit.

(A local TV station) asked a very good question: is this legal? Their legal analyst Charlie Langton says “Unless this city has some ordinance, that prevents these kind of fingers from being illegal of some kind – no!

You could have a statue, some people might call it art, I don’t know, but there’s nothing illegal about it…I know it doesn’t look good, but there’s nothing illegal about it. Get over it!”

However were she to get back at him – what would be a fitting gesture? I have something in mind but don’t think it fit to print on these pages.

Perhaps you can regale us with some tales of how you’ve gotten even with a cheating ex!
And please take the poll – is our cuckolded ex husband crafty or classless?
