Breakups are tough, and we all cope in different ways. At Stumpy's Hachet House in Eatonville, NJ, you can express your rage toward a particularly bad ex by throwing hatchets at a bullseye with a picture of their face on it. Sounds like a totally great, not at all concerning idea, right?

The indoor ax-throwing venue hosts "Ax Your Past" parties, where participants can throw a sharp object right through the middle of their ex's stupid mug while surrounded by other scorned lovers doing the same exact thing.

As Trish Oliphant, the owner of Stumpy's, explained to The New York Post, “We encourage people to bury the hatchet, so to speak, so they can move forward to a brighter and better future. It’s better than sitting home and eating a gallon of ice cream."

Sure, okay. Still sounds a little crazy to us, but Deborah Serani, a psychologist and Adelphi University professor confirmed that throwing an ax at a picture of your ex could actually be very therapeutic.

"It's constructive deconstruction," Serani told the Post. "It's a way to take excess energy that may be agitating you and use it in a productive way. As long as it’s all in fun, I don’t see anything wrong with it... I imagine it would be very satisfying."

Satisfying? Sure. Still a bit frightening? Definitely.

And not to worry, even happy couples can get in on the ax-wielding fun. Apparently, throwing hatchets is a great way to bond with your significant other. You know how the old saying goes, "The couple who spends date night waving hatchets in each other's faces stays together."

Date night? #socialthrowdown #letitgo
