The Ex Files: A Museum Displays Tokens of Busted Relationship

Breaking up is hard to do, and not only because you're stuck with a Facebook album full of happy pictures and the possibility of running into your ex while you're shopping for Ben & Jerry's and RomComs in your sweats. Because inevitably, we all end up with a heavy box full of stuff from the Ex-files that we don't quite know what to do with: Underwear, teddy bears, grooming products, jewelry. But now you can donate those pink furry handcuffs to the Museum of Broken Relationships, a new traveling exhibit dedicated to failed love, founded in Croatia. So not only can you "get rid of controversial objects, triggers of momentarily undesirable emotions, by turning them into museum exhibits," but you can also probably really piss off your boyfriend by putting his underwear on display. Fellow Croatians have already submitted everything from a sweet little teddy to an axe used for destroying furniture (terrifying). The museum's collection is currently on tour, so get hustling: What bad relationship item will you be submitting? (Dossier)
