You know, the guy wearing the sign that said, "I CHEATED. THIS IS MY PUNISHMENT."
A man who identified himself as William Taylor of Centreville, Va. told a passerby that he cheated on his wife -- and she found evidence of it on his cell phone. So the wife allegedly doled out a rather creative punishment: He had to stand at the intersection during morning rush, wearing the handmade sign.
We haven't quite decided if this is a publicity stunt for some wacky YouTube channel or a ratings-driver for a morning radio station. But if it's true, we like it. We. Are. Amused.
People reported seeing him as early as 9 a.m., and his presence was discussed on several of D.C.'s morning radio shows. Taylor said his wife texted him a little before 11 a.m. and said he'd been out there long enough. He removed the sign and skedaddled.
Leesburg Pike in Tysons Corner is one of the most traffic-clogged arteries in the area, making for maximum viewing pleasure.
Hope it was worth it, buddy.
UPDATE: Yep, a hoax! We so called this one. Even though we WANTED it to be true.
