    wives make me laugh...

    I thought this might be a fun topic, as long as the wives dont read it, but what are some silly things your wife does/says.

    Last night, during 30 rock, they asked the question, this was the only mammal that lays eggs. My wife did not know, but then I asked what the difference between a reptile and a mammal were. Her answer... Mammals have noses. It took me 5 min to stop laughing.

    Then today, going off the dish/weather thread last night, she told her brother to go up on his roof and spray his dish with butter to keep the snow off. I think she says this just to make me laugh.

    Ahhhh...the stories I could tell...and will...later.

    Gotta finish watching Invincible.

    But seriously, spraying a non-stick cooking oil like Pam works well. It just won't help you once the dish is already covered in ice/snow.

    We were at Epcot Center and were set to head into Great Britain. I mentioned I'd like to get some fish 'n chips like I used to get in London and she says "I Thought London was in England"

    Someone recently published a study stating how women see men as more attractive with increasing IQ. The opposite was true for men; men typically see women as more attractive with decreasing IQ's.

    Two quickies:

    1.) What is more 1/4 or 3/4?

    2.) Who sings that song YMCA?

    Both are classics of my one an only...

    Re: wives make me laugh...

    I grew up on a farm and my wife is a full-blown "townie". One morning we were driving down the road and she asked me, "What do farmers do to the fields to make it steam like that?". I said "Honey, that is fog".

    Doesn't really surprise me. Many of the more "attractive" girls in class usually say the most surprisingly stupid things in class. For example: The professor asked what the American Dream was in The Great Gatsby. Hot girl answers "but it never said anything about Nick's dreams while he was sleeping"

    Re: wives make me laugh...

    She's not my wife, but she's pretty close -- my girlfriend thought for the longest time that the weather man, when referring to the wind chill, was saying that the actual temperature is 18, but the windshield of a car was down to 0.

    I guess the windshield of the car was colder to the touch than the wind was?

    Re: wives make me laugh...

    Two seasons ago, the Seahawks were beating the tar out of the Eagles on MNF. We were kind-of watching the game as it was a snoozer. The Eagles turned the ball over yet again and Seattle returned it for a score. My wife bravely says....

    "The Eagles are running themselves in the butt!"

    After laughing for a few minutes, I didn't have the heart to ask her just what in the heck she meant.

    Just one of many stories.

    I did, after all, marry the only person over the age of 10 with a giant foam "#1 fan" hand.

    The g/f constantly debates me over the difference between wheels and tires. She insists they are the same thing and that there is no difference.

    O my god, that would be tough to top. Was she from Beauty and the Geeks?

    Re: wives make me laugh...

    My wife is from the western suburbs of Chicago and claims to have never been to Iowa before she met me (post college days). The first time I brought her back (late July) for a family event, we're driving along I-80 when she blurts out, "who eats all that sweet corn and do they pick it by hand?"

    She followed it up later that weekend with some equally good material regardings cattle & hogs, but the "sweet corn" comment showed how oblivious my parochial school (and college educated) future wife was...

    Postcript: One of our nieces from Chicagoland came out to visit EIU and she said the same thing!
