And the Winner of the Infidelity Valentine’s Contest Is…

you suck valentineOnce again, CN, you made this very difficult. With your superlative snark, it was hard to choose a winner. But I winnowed it down. Here are the runner ups.

In the Limerick category:

There once was a chump who ran,
Starting over, she cried “I can!”
No more porn, hookers, or lies,
She cut all unhealthy ties,
Living her best life without the man.

The prostitute fucker got married
Now she gets the burden I carried
Nancy is it
He’s still a piece of shit
The past is now dead and buried

Nothing Chumpares 2 U
Can you believe all these dumb-ass fuckwits?
The ex-wife mistook hotel beds as “cockpits”
I was chumped and abused
But have the higher of the IQs
Takes her 2 hours just to watch 60 minutes!

I took four years to heal from the traumas,
Got career, house, and healthcare (Obama’s).
Ex is homeless and broke,
His teens think he’s a joke.
But at least he’s got three baby mommas.

Lady Loyal
It’s easy to say goodbye
To a spouse who would always lie
Adios mi amigo
You a cheetoh
Fry baby fry


A Tesla, capped teeth, and a whore
Midlife left you just wanting More
Now I’ve got the kids,
The house (pots, pans, and lids),
And happily, you got the door

Excellent imagery there! The capped teeth midlife crisis dentistry says it all. Congrats!

And in the haiku category! The runner ups are:

A dozen roses
(for her.) My gift was herpes
Faithful spouse my ass

Years of online sex
Their true love couldn’t survive
Two months IRL

The road you travel
Requires many things,
like penicillin.

He was my husband
25 years of hard labor
He’s your problem now


You said our problem
was “bad communication”–
I went no contact.


Winners, I’ll be in touch. Excellent entries everyone! Thanks for playing!

    We’ve got a very creative chump nation here. So funny, sad, and true.
