Kevin Cotter recently found himself among the other 50 percent of Americans who wind up getting divorced from their first spouse. Rather than wallow in the broken remains of 12 years of marriage, the guy decided to have a little fun. See, his ex-wife refused to take her wedding dress when she left the house. Rather than throw the dress on Craigslist and call it a day, Cotter decided to write a book about the 101 uses a newly-single guy could come up with for a fancy piece of silk and lace.

Only no one was exactly champing at the bit to publish his idea. Instead, he did what any self-respecting freshly-rejected writer would do. He took to the internets! Cotter now runs My Ex Wifes Wedding Dress – a blog all about the wide array of uses he's come up with so far. While we're personally fans of the scarecrow, Cotter has also used the gown for a drip cloth when he changes the oil in his Honda Element and a gas cap. Hilarity ensues. Thanks for the tip, Jubby!

      Y dude and "not that Matt" sound like really insecure males.

      really confirms that he is no good to be married to.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Because you know his life or their relationship right?... Unless you've been in their business for the past 12 years you have no right to say "confirms that he is no good to be married to." You don't even know this guy which confirms that you are an idiot. Just because the guy has a sense of humor about this doesn't make him a bad person. Who knows, maybe this is HIS way of dealing with the situation. Everybody has their way with handling certain situations and trust me, he could have done much much worse things so just lighten up, open your friggin mind, and turn that frown up side down! :D

      Implying that a man driving an Element is gay, or that the Element is just a chick car? The world may never know!

      That picture reminds me of that line from Adam Sandler's song Ode To My Car.

      You say that as if you're classifying a figure skater as a sexuality. Funny, though, Evan Lysacek is a figure skater, yet he's in a relationship with an extremely hot former female gymnast and is a car guy.

      Does this guy wonder why he is now divorced? How is this any helpful to his relationship with his ex?
        • 4 Years Ago
        @James: I might be wrong but something is telling me that after 12yrs+divorce he doesn't give crap about being marriable. :P

        Dude tried to get her to take it with her. She didn't.

        It's just a dress after that.

        James and Mbuku, who pissed in your cheerios this morning?
        • 4 Years Ago
        who said he wants to get married again.
        he's free at last!

        now go have some fun with the second half of your life!

        If there are no kids involved, he may not want or need to keep a 'relationship with his ex'

        I doubt it was that good to begin with. Women are always writing things that slag on men, so what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I can she why she left his ass. Good luck being alone and bitter holding onto a stupid dress that somehow he feels empowers him like a voodoo doll or something. haha

        Agree with parent poster. How childish can one get? If he didn't want it around, he could have sold it eBay or Craig's list and picked up a few bucks. Instead he decides to act like a primate.

        No one cares that you don't like your ex-wife. You have, however, just made yourself unmarriable for any other woman on the planet who will google your name. Why would any woman want to put up with someone like this?

        Mbuku Kanyau Mbithuka - You are kidding right? Immaturity with finding things to do with his ex's wedding dress? What about all the games women play? What if this woman was unfaithful? You are giving her the benefit of the doubt without considering she may have been the source of the trouble and you go all out to blame the man who tried to make a negative into positive humor.

        Maybe its you who is immature.

        @ Mbuku Kanyau Mbithuka

        Because surely women can never do wrong in a marriage *insert extreme sarcasm here*

        @downhill.specialist
        I did not say she did no wrong, This guy obviously is displaying a pattern of immaturity that shows that he probably had more to do with the break up than she had.

        Where is her blog trashing his tux?

        "Where is her blog trashing his tux? "

        Probably doesn't exist, since - I'm assuming - it was a rental.
      R U kidding me?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Ok, I guess there is a niche for everything, and to each his own, but isn't the use as a gas cap - a traffic, safety and possible fire hazard?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Wow, someone's a little bitter....
      • 4 Years Ago
      No wonder he got divorced - he stole his wife's car.

      A Honda Element? Really?
