I saw what you wrote, Shaffer, and I agree completely.

Serves you right for lingering in the "Show us your SWMBO" thread.

I think having a sense of humor is important. SWMBO is not an offensive term at all, as we all know it's tongue in check.

It goes along with the old phrase: "Happy wife, happy life". I don't think anybody in the world believes that the only key to happiness is to make his wife happy. But.........it never hurts to try!
The key to happiness is not to make your wife happy. It is to make yourself happy. However if SWMBO asks me to help her with something or even work on the honey do list and I just sit around enjoying home brew she has the tendency to get a little upset and find a way to make my life miserable. So with that in mind I believe that "SWMBO" is not an offensive term but a realization that most men CHOOSE to use because they know that in order to be able to partake in their hobby they must obey.

That is so F'ing stupid, everyone knows when you get to the bottom of the mayo or peanut butter you use the spoon you scooped it out with as a knife. However, having all knives when you need a spoon that is lyrics I could work with.

There's nothing subtle or difficult to get about it. The Office (UK) and Extras are two of my favorite shows of all time. This isn't subtle at all, it's lame.

Keep using it, if you want, but it isn't funny.
If you think we use it to be funny, you're missing the point. It's a convention of speech in the homebrewing world, among others. It's harmless. Like using a handle like "Rex Banner."
