Fabulous Acts Of Revenge

We all have those days where we fantasise about enacting revenge on those that have done us wrong. After this morning’s incident with my annoying neighbour I started thinking about revenge tactics, which inevitably lead to the development of this post. I’ve compiled a list of some of my favourite acts of revenge. Before I begin, I’d like to categorically state that I don’t condone any of these. I do, however, find them fabulous, inventive and inspiring and thought that I’d share them with you…

1. Dirty Panties

Girl finds another woman’s soiled panties at her house. Suffice to say, she wasn’t particularly happy about the situation.

Her revenge? Name and shame on Facebook. I obtained this from:

2. Cheating Wife

A man discovered his wife was cheating on him with his best friend.

His revenge? He sold two hundred sexy photos of her on eBay. The man offered the CD snaps of blonde Linsey, 24, at £4.99 each. Within 24 hours all the pictures had been bought.

The man explained: “She was playing away with my so-called best friend and now it’s payback time.”

 

image3. Cold Call Revenge

Richard Herman, a 53-year-old from the UK, was repeatedly cold-called by one particular firm, despite being registered with the Telephone Preference Service, which should have prevented these calls from happening. He decided to take action.

His revenge? He told the representative that he would be charging the company £10 a minute wasting his time and electricity and would be recording the calls as proof. Despite this, they called again, for nearly twenty minutes, and so he issued them with an invoice for £195. After thirty days he hadn’t received a payment and so he took the company to the small claims court. He won. The company paid his requested fees and £25 court costs.

4. Australian child body slams his bully.

Sixteen-year-old Casey Heynes was the target of repeat bullying by students at a school in Sydney, Australia.

His revenge? After repeatedly being harassed over several years Heynes decided to get revenge on the considerably smaller bully in 2012 by body slamming him to the floor. The incident was filmed, and the video went viral. Despite the clear act of self-defense, the school made the decision to suspend both students once the video began to circulate online. Heynes has since become a poster boy for anti-bullying campaigns and has appeared many times on Australian television. I, along with many others, don’t condone violence, but I must admit I applauded him for finally standing up for himself.

5. Alan Ralsky

Ralsky was an entrepreneur from Michigan who was known as the ‘spam king’ after sending millions of spam e-mails on behalf of various businesses. After a feature appeared in a newspaper about him local residents worked out his address.

Their revenge? They signed him up for junk mail on hundreds of websites, and sent junk flyers to his home. At it’s height, Ralsky was receiving hundreds of pounds of junk mail a day.

6. The Queen’s Royal Guards

Traditionally, the Royal Guards play for any visiting foreign dignitaries upon their visit to meet the Queen. The visit of Saudi King Abdullah was marred with controversy, mainly due to his tolerance of human rights abuses and his promotion of books such as ‘Why Women Deserve To Die.’ However, us Brits don’t like to beak tradition and despite their personal feelings it was decided that they should indeed play for the King’s Royal reception at Buckingham Palace.

Their revenge? The band greeted the King with a heart-felt rendition of ‘The Imperial March’, Darth Vader’s theme from ‘Star Wars.’ Brilliant.

And finally, the best act of revenge has to go to:

7. George Lucas

Lucas spent twenty-five years attempting to build an enormous digital media centre in his property in California, creating up to six hundred jobs and bringing large amounts of income to local businesses. However, he faced constant opposition from rich local residents, who complained about potential noise and light pollution and increased traffic.

His revenge? Lucas grew tired of the constant battle and so he sold the property to the Marin Community Foundation, a non-profit organisation that are planning to build low-income housing on the land. This has terrified local residents, who have claimed that this proposal in going to throw the area into a state of “sheer terror” and have accused Lucas of “class warfare”. Serves the snobby residents right.

  5. These are wonderful! Such a relief and too bad you can’t do something to stop your noisy neighbor. Like waiting until SHE’S asleep and banging on a skillet with a wooden spoon – preferably right under her window . . . . .

  6. Wow! Your writing is fresh and humorous! I would love to see the shock on Alan Ralsky when he started receiving mails and flyers!! Look forward to reading more of your psots! 😉

  7. My Favourite !!
    In October of 1648 Rev. Zachary Boyd preached an anti-parliamentary sermon to Oliver Cromwell and his Staff at a divine Service at Glasgow Cathedral. The staff were furious. However, after the service, Cromwell invited Boyd to share a meal with him. Grace was three hours long!!
