Man pretends to hang himself

Hitting on the novel idea that he could end his wife’s incessant nagging by giving her a good scare, Hungarian Jake Fen built an elaborate harness to make it look as if he had hanged himself.

When his wife came home and saw him she fainted. Hearing a disturbance a neighbour came over and, finding what she thought were two corpses, seized the opportunity to loot the place.

As she was leaving the room, her arms laden, the outraged and suspended Mr Fen kicked her stoutly in the backside.

This so surprised the lady that she dropped dead of a heart attack.

Happily, Mr Fen was acquitted of manslaughter and he and his wife were reconciled.
