Taking Aim


One woman shoots an apple off of her ex's head.

Moscow State Circus husband-and-wife team Anton and Nataliya Popazov are currently in the throes of a divorce. Nobody likes a split. (Boo, divorce!) Yet the couple must fulfill the remaining eight months of their contract with the circus. What, you may ask, do they perform? For one, Nataliya shoots—and will continue to shoot—an apple off of Anton's head with a crossbow. Yikes.

As Anton told The Times of London, "I still trust her because Nataliya is very professional. It's not every man's cup of tea to have his ex-partner firing arrows at him every day, but the show must go on."

We hope he offers her a healthy settlement…
