Man erects giant middle finger

Lisa sends this NY Post story about an angry ex-husband:
Alan Markovitz is “so over” his ex-wife.

So over her. Which is presumably why he bought the house next to hers and erected a $7000 statue of a hand with its middle finger raised in the backyard.

The bronze statue, which is about 3.5 metres tall, faces the windows of Mr Markovitz’s ex-wife Lea Tuohy’s house.
It’s even spot-lit to ensure the neighbours can see it at night, Gawker reports.

Mr Markovitz is a “local legend” who owns three strip clubs in the US city of Detroit. He reportedly lives with his 17-year-old daughter, Tiffany, from a previous relationship. ...

Mr Markovitz has a colourful reputation to say the least. He’s been shot twice and targeted by a murder contract, all while buying and selling local topless clubs, Deadline Detroit reports.

Mr Markovitz has also written an autobiography, modestly entitled “Topless Prophet: The True Story of America’s Most Successful Gentleman’s Club Entrepreneur”. The book is currently being turned into a TV series.

Oh, and the guy obviously has enough cash floating around to casually buy a house and put a $7000 statue in the yard just to spite his ex-wife and her new partner.
Compared to all the other ways that ex-spouses get revenge, both legal and criminal, this is tame and amusing.
