Revenge is a dish best served on eBay

Ah, eBay. It's not just for nerds who want mint-condition action figures anymore; no, it's become the go-to site for humiliating cheating spouses:
An Australian woman has taken revenge on her cheating husband by putting a photograph of his lover's underpants up for sale on the auction site eBay.

In the listing the woman says she is selling a picture of a pair of lacy black knickers and an empty condom wrapper "size small" found in her bed after her husband had an affair with another woman.

The seller -- identified on eBay only as annastella007 -- provides a rather unflattering description of the knickers.

"They are so huge I thought they may make someone a nice shawl or, even better, something for Halloween perhaps."

The eBay listing, entitled "Empty condom packet & a photo of 'The Tart's' knickers," also includes a detailed account of the events leading up to the discovery.
Get ready for it, people, because those events amount to a great, big, hilarious pile of FAIL...
The woman says she returned from work after receiving a romantic text message from her husband of 22 years that was clearly misdirected to find him at home watching a DVD and discouraging her from entering their bedroom.

In the room she found the empty condom wrapper under his pillow and "the Tart's knickers ... at the foot of the bed."
The article goes on to say that she's selling a photo of the underpants because of a company policy that prohibits the sale of used undergarments. I bet that's unpopular in Japan, but I digress.

She's also selling his Harley, starting at the low, low price of 99 cents. That'll learn him to pay a little more attention to his texting.
