On the first day after his divorce, he sadly packed his belongings
into boxes, crates and suitcases.

On the second day, he had the movers come and collect his things.

On the third day, he sat down for the last time at their beautiful
dining-room table, by candle-light; he put on some soft background
music, and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar, a bottle of
spring-water, 3 cans of sardines.

When he'd finished, he went into each and every room and deposited a
few half-eaten shrimps dipped in caviar, and some sardines into the
hollow center of the curtain rods.

He then cleaned up the kitchen and left.

On the fourth day, the wife came back with her new boyfriend, and at
first all was bliss.

Then, slowly, the house began to smell.

They tried everything; cleaning, mopping, and airing-out the place.
Vents were checked for dead rodents, and carpets were steam cleaned.

Air fresheners were hung everywhere. Exterminators were brought in to
set off gas canisters, during which time the two had to move out for a
few days, and in the end they even paid to replace the expensive wool
carpeting. Nothing worked!...People stopped coming over to visit.

Repairmen refused to work in the house...The maid quit.

Finally, they couldn't take the stench any longer, and decided they
had to move, but a month later - even though they'd cut their price in
half - they couldn't find a buyer for such a stinky house.

Word got out, and eventually even the local realtors refused to
return their calls.

Finally, unable to wait any longer for a purchaser, they had to
borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place.

Then the ex called the woman and asked how things were going. She
told him the saga of the rotting house. He listened politely and said
that he missed his old home terribly and would be willing to reduce his
divorce settlement in exchange for having the house.

Knowing he could have no idea how bad the smell really was, she
agreed on a price that was only 1/10 nth of what the house had been
worth ... but only if he would sign the papers that very day.

He agreed, and within two hours her lawyers delivered the completed

A week later the woman and her boyfriend stood smiling as they
watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home
and to spite the ex-husband... they even took the curtain rods!

Must be the most substantial curtain rods I've ever heard of.
