Talk about splitting up.
Following his divorce, this German man appears to have decided to split all of his belongings with his wife—literally.
The disgruntled ex-husband, who goes by the name Der Juli online, posted a video to YouTube showcasing him cutting chairs, beds and phones in half for his ex-wife. The video's translated description reads "Thank you for 12 'beautiful years,' Laura! You've really earned half. Greetings also to my successor."
Phones, laptops, teddy bears—you name it, he split it.
From their mailbox to their sofa, all of the man's remaining halves are now up for sale on eBay, reports Mashable. One of the descriptions on his eBay page roughly translates as: "From my half I must now separate, fond memories you can not remove."
Unfortunately for Americans looking for some cut-up furniture, the man is not shipping to the U.S. If you are in the neighborhood though, he says he will accept cash payment upon delivery.
(Update: This turns out to have been a marketing gimmick by a German lawyers' group, and not actually the result of a divorce case, as noted in this June 22 story.)
