The Cuckolds Club

Local gossips in Canicatti had a lot to talk about after a mysterious 'cuckolds' club literally plastered most of the walls of the Sicilian town with the name of a new member. The club's betrayed committee' worked overnight to attach some 20,000 posters indicating the man's name and profession and welcoming him to the fraternity.

The poster praised the man for ''having put up with the betrayal of his wife with more than a few of his friends with courage and dignity''. His wife was given honorary membership in the cheating wives association of Canicatti, Italy's biggest producer of wine grapes.

Canicatti police said they'd have no problems finding the culprits but could not press charges unless the man or his wife filed a complaint.
