For some divorcées, one of the upsides of a split is the freedom to make fun of their exes.
Stand-up comedian Jennifer Eolin did just that in a video she posted online late last month.
"We were married for three years and it got to the point where one thing just was the straw in the camel's back, and that thing was toenails," she says in the video above. "Not the ones attached to his feet."
Eolin told the audience that she found her then-husband's toenails "not in a garbage can, not on the floor in the bathroom," but hidden behind the couch. And once she realized how they got there, she just couldn't get over it.
"There is just really not enough fire and bleach and Activia to make you feel clean after you realize what your husband's been putting in his mouth for three years and spitting behind the couch," she said. "I'm trying not to cry because it's true."
Eolin currently lives and performs standup in New York City, and is an executive producer and star of the webseries The Tutorialist . She got her start in comedy as a writers' assistant for the last two seasons of Seinfeld.

After just over a year of marriage, Russell Brand filed to divorce Katy Perry in December 2011. In his opening monologue as host of the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, Brand made light of the split: "Last time I did an MTV show I ended up marrying someone," he said, referring to his meeting ex-wife Perry at an MTV Video Music Awards rehearsal in 2009. "Tonight I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for my next wife."
George Lopez's wife, Ann Serrano, filed for divorce in November 2010 after 7 years of marriage. Several months later, on his since-cancelled talk show "Lopez Tonight," the comedian joked about his split with guest Camille Grammer: "Let's go through a couple of things that are happening. Let's see. You have a new cable show, you're getting divorced, and there's no pre-nup...Wait a minute...that's me."
"New Girl" actress Zooey Deschanel filed for divorce from Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard in December 2011.

"Male writers, you are so hot with your minds and plaid shirts. Hit on me."
"Cougar Town" leading lady Courteney Cox announced her split from husband David Arquette in October 2010. Both parties filed for divorce in June 2012. When TMZ cameras approached Cox about Arquette's decision to file divorce docs, she sarcastically responded, "He diiiiid? Oh my god, I didn't know."
Twice-divorced late-night host Craig Ferguson's first marriage to Anne Hogarth ended in 1986, and his second -- to Sascha Corwin, whom he wed in in 1998 -- ended in 2004. In his 2009 book American on Purpose: The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot, Ferguson took a humorous jab at divorce lawyers: "Divorce lawyers stoke anger and fear in their clients, knowing that as long as the conflicts remain unresolved the revenue stream will keep flowing. I like to believe there is an extra warm corner of hell for these f***ers who traffic in emotional misery."
