Win a Divorce?

Campbell Live did a story on an Australian magazine that offers a competition to “win a divorce”, including a Playstation and a cleaner. Said story isn’t on their site yet. (I’ll retroactively link it when it is)

I wonder if these guys spent as much time building their relationships as they did trying to avoid them, they might not need to win a divorce. While I certainly agree the best thing two incompatible people in a relationship can do is to get a divorce, I don’t think offering it in general is either funny or appropriate.
