Jilted Wife Sets 400 Cell Phones On Fire

Hell Hath No Fury Like a Cell Phone ScortchedWe're pretty familiar with cell phones immolating themselves. Usually it's cheap, knock-off or poorly designed batteries that explode at the drop of a hat and cause some fireworks and fears of death. A story out of China reports of a very different sort of cell phone fire -- a much larger and rather more intentional type.

A 37-year-old woman in China named Mrs. Wang was rather irritated at her husband when he decided to leave their marriage. As retribution she went to the couple's store, where they sell cell phones, gathered 400 of them, put them in a pile inside their house, and lit the whole thing on fire. The pile was reportedly worth about $42,000, which means she obviously picked only the best handsets to ignite.

The look on Mr. Wang's face after he came home to the smoldering mess, however, must have been priceless.
