Wife forces man to choose between her and an Orc

A husband has been forced to make the ultimate compromise -- his wife, or his six-foot-tall World of Warcraft Orc statue. For years, 42-year-old Robert Cushnie was living the ultimate dream, sharing his home with both his woman and his greenskin. However, that dream (the same dream we've all had) was shattered when his Canadian wife threw down an ultimatum. 

The choice was simple but heartwrending -- live with the Orc forever, or watch her return to Canada without him. Cushnie, amazingly, summoned the courage to part with the statue, and had to put it up for adoption. 

"It came down to the wife or the Orc," says Cushnie. "She said there wasn't any room for him in our life. I've had him for six years but Dee means more to me, so he had to go."

Dee, for her part, said the Orc "towered" over her 5'3 frame, and that it was "creepy." The Orc has found a new home with Michael and Patrica Thomson in Aberdeen. 

Any woman who makes a man choose between her and an Orc is a bitch, by the way.
