42 year old Robert Cushnie was made to choose between a 6 foot Orc (from World of Warcraft) statue or his wife. The wife, Dee told Robert that if he did not get rid of the “gruesome creature,” that she would move back to her homeland of Canada and without him. Robert was forced to choose between two of his most beloved possessions.
The couple is set to move to Canada later this month and because he does not want to lose his wife, Robert decided that his 6 year relationship with the statue had to end and Mr Orc would stay behind. This is a story of hope though, the Orc is being adopted by 61 year old Michael and 55 year old Patricia, who say, “We wanted him because he’s so unusual. Our grandkids love him.”
Robert on the other hand will miss his Orc, but said, “I’m glad he’s gone to a good home.”
