My cousin shared this story on Facebook over the weekend and I thought it was pretty funny, at least too funny to not share. Go read.
My first reaction, was of course, to wonder what it must be like to have enough money that you can waste $100 on a practical joke. My second was, oh man, I've had that fight over towels/something else I thought needed replacing and my frugal husband didn't. I don't think even if we had the money, I would get a giant metal chicken, but I might get something else and say, "at least it isn't towels."
But anyway, my cousin shared this on Facebook and her wall erupted with comments over whether the husband is abusive and threatening, whether the couple has a good relationship or not, on where one can get a giant chicken, and I thought I would share here, because I can't help but wonder how much of this argument is accurately retold and how much is sensationalized for the internet. Either way, I'm not so sure it's such a good idea - but maybe I'm wrong. Other thoughts?
