Stop visiting the forums. Obey your old lady a little more, I suppose.

SWMBO isn't going anywhere, and for good reason: the evil man-hating women in our lives will continue to rule over us forevermore -- because they possess the GOODS gentlemen.

And RDWHAH is a perfect self-contained message for all the fretful beginner brewers out there, most of whom need to hear it a dozen or more times for the philosophy to stick.

Silly thread... go to sleep.

I'd drop the SWMBO, but it's cheaper to keep her!

wow. 19 years of humorless bliss....


Just kidding - really.
Obviously, different folks have different senses of humor. Wry is not one of yours, but is fairly common, which is why so many of us are okay with SWMBO.
Wry understands that SWMBO is tongue in cheek, not serious, maybe even funnier when stated seriously...

Wry is sarcasm that is not mean-spirited at all, but appreciated in good company. the dictionary calls us distorted, perverse in that the meanings we take are distorted from the original intent of the word. SWMBO is a perfect example. We don't take it as a directive, only as a reference to our significant other.

I'm guessing British humor leaves you scratching your head - but to each his own.

I don't like it, so I don't use it.

But really, Who the hell cares?

I called my significant other my SWMBO to her face last night -- she hugged me and said "I've been waiting for you to figure that out...."

That's the thing. It's not funny at all. It's not wry. It's dork humor.

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.

I think it's funny.

When I was in the Navy, wives were referred to as NAVWIFCOM.
