Chinese Mistress Contest Takes Tragic Turn (from cnn.com).

Here's the lead on the article:

A married Chinese businessman who could no longer afford five mistresses held a competition to decide which one to keep.  But the contest took a fatal turn when one of the women, eliminated for her looks, drove the man and the four other competitors off a cliff, Chinese media reported.  The spurned mistress died and the other passengers were injured, the reports said.

Sheesh.  How screwed up is our world if this sort of thing can happen?  You can't make this stuff up.

The four other women left him, as did his wife when she learned of the affairs.

Gee, 'ya think?
