Wife or Orc? Man forced to choose.

Monday, January 11th, 2010

Orc breakups are messy.

Robert Cushnie, 42, had some big decision making to make last week when his spouse forced him to choose between his geekyness over her ladyness. Canadian wife Dee, 42, asked him to please get rid of his 6 foot tall World of Warcraft-ish ‘Orc’ statue that had shared a home with him for 6 years, or she was high tailing it back to her homelands without him.

The late night telecommunications manager explained “It came down to the wife or the Orc, she said there wasn’t any room for him in our life. I’ve had him for six years but Dee means more to me, so he had to go.”

Dee says: “I just don’t like it. I’m only 5ft 3in, so it towers over me, which is quite creepy.”

So now distraught Robert, of Aberdeen, has been forced to have his giant toy that he acquired from a Falkirk toy shop adopted.

Dee and Robert married last February and will move to Canada later this month, without the Orc statue. The Orc was able to find a good home with Aberdeen’s Michael Thomson, 61, and GOOD wife Patricia, 55 (we named her that).

Robert quotes: “I’ll miss him – but I’m glad he’s gone to a good home.”

We at strongly discourage this type of radical behavior and should be avoided at all costs. In the event that you run across this hurdle, please mail us all of your wife/husband hated nerd paraphernalia. We will honorably put them to use at our partys, events and social drinking engagements.
