Kevin Cotter thought his marriage would last forever, but after 12 years, he found his wife packing everything into her car—everything except her wedding gown, that is. Faced with his shock and confusion, the Tuscon salesman channeled his heartbreak into a blog that recounted the many comical ways Cotter put the dress to work, including a scarecrow (above)), a pasta strainer, a wheelbarrow, and even a homemade punching bag. A book, 101 Uses for my Ex-Wife's Wedding Dress, soon followed. Click through our photo gallery for some of our favorites. Hilarity will ensue, we promise.
