Man Over Board


Worldwide Weirdness Starts In Germany

A story from Stuttgart, Germany, that could make Jerry Springer and Maury Povich jealous. Things started innocently enough with Demetrius Soupolos, 29, and his former beauty queen wife, Traute, wanting dearly to have a child but after trying themselves for sometime a doctor’s visit reveals the husband is sterile.

Soupolos, gets the bright idea to hire his neighbor, Frank Maus, 34, to impregnate his wife, who has reservations about such a pact but goes along with the idea after some convincing. Neighbor Maus is seemingly a happily married father of two children, who actually as a bonus resembles Soupolos, so they make the daring offer. Maus’ wife objects, but he convinces her saying, “I don’t like this any more than you. I’m simply doing it for the money. Try and understand.”

Soupolos pays his neighbor $2,500 for the job and for three evenings a week for the next six months, amounting to 72 different times, Maus tries to fulfill the contract and impregnate Traute. After all those tries Soupolos gets inpatient and insists that Maus have a medical examination, which he does. The doctor finds that Maus is also sterile, which pretty much shocks everyone except his wife, who is forced to confess that Maus was not the real father of their two children. Now Soupolos is suing his neighbor for breach of contract in an effort to get his money back, but Maus refuses to give a refund because he said he did not guarantee conception, but only that he would give an honest effort. Courtesy from ChattahBox

It Even Happens  In Croatia

“Your Cheating Heart” isn’t just a song played on the radio.

A Croatian husband was caught cheating when his wife had his favorite radio host call him for his birthday while he was away on a business trip — only to have the woman he was sleeping with answer the phone.

Things turned ugly when the wife chimed in on air accusing her husband of being a jerk.

They’re Weird In China Also

A man in China, re-marrying after losing his wife in a car crash, has convinced his second wife to have plastic surgery in order to make her look like his deceased first wife.

32-year old Zhao Gang spent six months recovering in hospital after the car crash which killed his wife Lu. ‘I wish I could have died with her,’ he noted to local newspaper the Chongqing Business News.

However, following on from the crash three years ago, Zhao says he came under increasing pressure from his parents to remarry. The lucky lady was a girl called Cai.

‘I got married only because she looks a bit like her and I want to have a chance to make up for my mistakes,’ said Zhao.

And now Cai has bowed to pressure from Zhao to undergo the cosmetic surgery to enhance the similarity between herself and the dead woman. ‘Maybe it’s more or less unfair to her,’ admitted Zhao, ‘but she has agreed and I will embrace her with all my love.’

Cai, for her part, was looking on the bright side: ‘I feel conflicted. I don’t want to become another’s shadow, but I also don’t want to lose the family. Now I only hope the surgery will not make me look ugly.’

Their plans may have to be put on hold, however, as doctors are insisting they undergo a full psychological evaluation before the surgery. As the director of plastic surgery at Chongqing People’s Hospital, Zhang Lianfeng, pointed out: ‘Plastic surgery is not the best way to sustain a relationship.’

Or In Russia Too

A Russian man lost his wife in a game of cards after putting her up as a stake instead of cash.

Andrei Karpov from Murmansk had run out of money in a game of poker and offered his opponent his wife instead of cash to stay in the game.

When he lost the game and his opponent Sergey Brodov turned up to claim his winnings his wife Tatiana was so angry she decided to divorce her husband and started a relationship with Brodov.

She has since married Brodov, and said she does not regret leaving her first husband.

She said: ‘It was humiliating and I was utterly ashamed. But as soon as my ex-husband did that I knew I had to leave him.

‘Sergey was a very handsome, charming man and I am very happy with him, even if he did “win” me in a poker game. from the Metro UK

And Finally From the UK

A naked woman was found by police beating up her husband in a van, then ran off wearing just a coat when officers tried to arrest her.

Mary Nurse, 40, had stripped after getting soaked in the rain and was waiting for her husband to bring her some dry clothes.

Police nearby were distracted by arguing and screaming and found her beating up her husband while parked in the street in Brynawelon, Wales, at about 8pm on Sunday January 21. Mrs Nurse of Penyfan Road, Penyfan, was given a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £60 court costs after she admitted causing harassment, alarm and distress when she appeared before Llanelli magistrates.

Prosecuting solicitor Sian Vaughan said: ‘Officers asked her to put her clothes on and she replied: “They are wet and I’m not going anywhere until I get my money.”‘

Mrs Nurse, who has previous convictions for domestic violence, then grabbed a yellow fluorescent jacket and ran down the street with it over her shoulders.

Defending solicitor Peter Martin said his client had been drunk and was very embarrassed by it.

He added: ‘She had got wet in the rain and took her clothes off. Her husband was supposed to go into the house and bring some out for her, but in the meantime an argument followed, which got completely out of hand.’

  3. Yikes! Some people just don’t have both oars in the water, you know?

  4. The husband paying the neighbor to sex his wife to death was my favorite. Was that poetic justice or what?


  6. The first one was indeed the most entertaining for myself, but the plastic surgery one made my head do a few spins.

    It reminds me a little bit of why I have little tolerance of people. I wonder where their brain wanders off to, as I just can’t fathom why some do the things they do. Try to but man can people just irk me =/

  7. The German story is Interesting.
    I am sure neighbor won the case.
