What started as a joke by a construction site turned into a full-blown controversy, as the above sign sparked anger among female protesters, even leading to a petition to have it removed.

What do you think? Is it a harmless joke, or a blatant attempt by the male conglomerate to further oppress women through construction site billboards?

At first a traveling exhibit of donated items, the Museum of Broken Relationships in Zagreb, Croatia, strives to be a monument to the emotional impact of lost love. It has all kinds of relationship relics, from clothing like the wedding dress from a failed marriage and bras of ex-lovers (above), to more bizarre items like a bowl that a boyfriend insisted his lady use to make bread to appease his fetish, and an axe that a jilted boyfriend used to chop up his former lady's furniture (therapeutically, of course). The museum sends traveling exhibitions out every so often, so this mausoleum of forever alone might be coming to a venue near you soon! You can even add to the show!

This girl added insult to cancer-injury by demanding that the guy she broke up with (JUST because he had cancer, mind you) still give her the $8,000 tickets to the big game. Bad form, madam, bad form.
