|Divorce settlement: Half for you, half for me|
On the one hand there are the demolitions of Sept. 11, 2001, and the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq for which no one has adequately apologized, and on the other there is the burgeoning touchstone of skepticism that such legerdemain inspires ... if everyone is a liar, is it anything more than a practical joke to try to winkle out the truth?What seemed to be an extreme act of revenge by a husband against a cheating spouse turned out to be a marketing campaign by a German legal information company.It was a parting statement - literally. A newly-divorced German man, "Martin", recorded himself sawing all his possessions in half, and then put them up for sale on eBay.
It is a lot nicer when the practical jokes don't get people killed.
Practical joking seems to be impractical on the one hand ... but it's so much fun to laugh, on the other.
