Not quite the same thought but reminds me of a joke I heard;
A fellow answered an ad in the paper for a classic car in mint conditon for $100. He asked the woman who answered the phone if perhaps the price advertised was a typo. No, that is correct, she said. When asked why the car was so cheap she said, The car belongs to my husband and he ran off with another woman last spring. He called me last week and asked me sell his car and send him half the money I get for it.
