Chilean Miner Gets Offer to Endorse Cheating Website; Plus, 5 Truly Unfortunate Endorsements
So, our Chilean miner with the mistress -- Yonni Barrios -- whose wife and "lady on the side" found out about one another while he was stuck underground (and whose wife subsequently failed to meet him on the day of his ascent) has been offered a $100,000 endorsement deal from AshleyMadison.com, an online dating service for skeezy people who are on the hunt for extramarital affairs.
Barrios and his lyin' eyes.
Trickily, the contract requires that he stay married to his current wife, who, as soon as she gets whiff of this, will probably be running for divorce court. Sounds like the definition of "It's complicated." Not to mention, it will probably ruin any miner cute cred and goodwill that Barrios currently has -- although that may be fleeting since reports of a second mistress have emerged. Man, you get around!
In honor of Barrios, herewith, a refresher of our favorite other ill-advised, awkward, accidental, or shooting-self-in-foot endorsements.
