WTF of the day

a movie about a man living in the midst of tel-aviv, who has (at least) 32 wives and 89 children and the authorities are unable to do anything about it.

Because he claimed not to know the name of one of his wives. That tells me he doesn't care about them all that much. And if he doesn't, and they loose their attractiveness and their income generating abilities (the single mother subsidy only lasts for a few years, right? once the children grow up it's gone), I just see no motivation for him to keep them around.

Oh. I thought you meant that once he's dead, the remaining wives would be kicking out the elderly ones.

No, I think once he's dead half of them will try to commit suttee.

Yeah, that's pretty obvious.
