A German man has gone the extra mile to take the old divorce adage of splitting “half of everything you own” a little too literally.
German YouTube user, Der Juli (translated into English as “The July” for those who were wondering), uploaded a video titled ‘Fur Laura’ (“For Laura,” his wife) this week that records him masterfully sawing every significant material item they own into two equally-sized pieces that now have zero function or purpose.
One can imagine what went down between these two to cause a split with so much friction. I can only hope and pray that it wasn’t worse than the American wife who made her poor husband sell his golf clubs.
I’m not one to judge, but if I were a betting man, I’d say there’s a legitimate amount of fault in both parties here. Sure, he comes off as a bit rash for pulling this stunt in line with the satirical folklore that is Ron Swanson (Ron would totally do this with Tammy II, right?), but the woman has to be held accountable for her role in this too. I’ve never been to Germany, but I’m pretty freakin’ sure it’s a worldwide cultural value for a man to put a great deal of worth into his car and his big screen TV. Something very weird happened to make this poor bastard go completely scorched earth like that.
