They say revenge is a dish best served cold. Thankfully, these ten jilted lovers ignored that old adage, otherwise we wouldn't have such a fun, ridiculous and hot list. Love can make you do a lot of crazy things, but the loss of love put these folks over the edge, online, and in some case…on fire!
10. Jilted Wife Sells Husband's Used "Small" Condom And Mistress' "Humongous" Panties On eBay
Hardworking wife "annastella007" came home to her husband of 22 years and was surprised when he tried to keep her from going into their bedroom. His offer of tea didn't deter her, and inside the boudoir she discovered an empty condom wrapper ("size small") and panties (size "humongous"). What to do with the evidence? Sell them on eBay, of course. She listed the items as "Empty Condom Packet & A Photo of 'The Tarts' Knickers Found in Our Bed After a Two Timing Low Life's Affair." "Anna" promised there were more auctions to come, with her hubby's Harley Davidson as "the next item that will probably be sold on eBay at a start price of 99c and, of course, with no reserve!"

9. Real Meathead: Ex-Boyfriend Covers Himself In Dead Animal Flesh, Breaks Into Woman's Home
Drugs are bad, m'kay kids? Example one: The U.K.'s Liam McGarry, high on amphetamines, broke into his ex-girlfriend's home while covered in meat. He then hit her and spit meat on her. We're sure somewhere in his mind this sounded like the perfect revenge plan. But once he sobered up (and was in police custody), even his lawyer couldn't explain it: "He [McGarry] is at a complete loss to explain the significance of the mince or why he had coated himself in it."
8. Drunk Boyfriend Burns Ex's Clothes, Bakes A Potato On The Fire
Alcohol's not much better: When Mark Vaughan saw his lover Kathryn Leigh kiss another man, he understandably wanted revenge. But then he got wasted and acted on his impulse. Vaughan created a very expensive bonfire in the middle of the street, using Leigh's entire wardrobe—and laptop—as well as a lot of gasoline. Apparently he built up an appetite, because police on the scene found him "extremely drunk" and attempting to bake a potato on the bonfire. Sadly, no amount of spuds could fill the hole in his heart…or help pay his arson fines. Getting Revenge On Your Ex: Is It Worth It?
7. Man Sells Ex-Wife's Wedding Dress On eBay
When Seattle-area rocker Larry Star found his ex-wife's wedding dress in his attic, he saw dollar signs. As his eBay ad read, "She took the $4000 engagement ring but left the dress…. This dress cost me $1200 that my drunken sot of an ex-father-in-law swore up and down he would pay for but didn't so I got stuck with the bill. Luckily I only got stuck with his daughter for 5 years.… Personally, I think it looks like a $1200 shower curtain, but what do I know." He knew something: the resulting ad got 6 million visitors to eBay, 113 bids, TV appearances for Larry…and five new marriage proposals. Starting Over eBay Style
