“Be careful who you cheat on” isn’t a famous, old adage, but it should be, because some scorned women go freaking crazy trying to get revenge on unfaithful spouses. Just last night, a 67-year-old woman in Queens, NY, woke up at 6 a.m., boiled a pot of water, and poured it on her husband’s private parts, leaving him with second- and third-degree burns from his knees to his abdomen. Oyinda Ojofeitimi told police she had recently learned her husband of 20 years had been unfaithful. “She was hurt and angry that after all this time married, he was stepping out on her,” a police source told the New York Daily News. “She wanted to shut down that possibility forever because he had treated her with such contempt.” Ojofeitimi then regretted what she had done and called 911, but that’s not really enough, is it? She has been arrested on assault charges. This isn’t the first time (and it certainly won’t be the last) that a woman has retaliated against her cheating husband. After the jump, a hall of fame for scorned women.

The three had been watching “War of the Worlds,” when Kharitovonova fell asleep. When she woke up, oral sex was going on, and she hit her friend and bit her husband. “I saw the blood spurting out of Liza’s mouth and then felt a sharp pain,” he said. “I don’t remember what happened next, I was unconscious.” Doctors were able to reattach the missing piece.

The message read, “I, Paul Owen Evans, am a sniveling, cheating, lying, arrogant little piece of shit. No, that’s not right — I’m worse than that: I’m a despicable, deceitful, dodgy, D**KHEAD who doesn’t reserve this attitude just for his wife. Oh yes, one more thing — I’ve got an extremely small penis that couldn’t excite a woman’s nostril let alone anything else. Thus endeth my confession. Regards. Paul Evans.” [The Register]
