Last night the wife moved two of my gallon fermenters, one in each hand. I started laughing hysterically (I had been drinking, and I was rather tired). "What?" she said smiling. I couldnt get it out I was laughing so hard. "WHAT?! C'mon tell me!" big smile. She lost the smile instantly and gave me the Destroyer of Worlds face when I finally choked out "Nice jugs!"

Just don't try to exploit any irrational fears.

My wife is deathly afraid of spiders. It is not a joking matter. She turns pale white, faints, the whole shabang. It is my duty to destroy any and all spiders I encounter that might possibly cross her path. Funny thing is, show her a snake and she get's all ooey gooey and wants to hold it.

I have never purposely messed with her in this way, but once she got pissed at me because unbeknownst to her I had taken a cool macro digital pic of this freaky garden spider and she found it while scrolling through the camera.

She was completely unreasonable and was convinced that I did it on purpose. She probably still thinks that. That's the problem with being a practical joker...sometimes you get blamed for crap you didn't do. Oh well...it's still worth it.

With that being said, once she chooses say "oh yeah? Mine was Polk"... and then poke her. If you do this every 2 or 3 years you should be able to make it work each time.
You forgot to mention that if you try this, be ready for a slap. I got a great poke in her ribs, but was totally not expecting the hand flying at my face.

The one I have been able to carry on the longest came around by accident. I misspelled Awesome as Awsome and realized it really bothered her that I left off the e. That was probably 6 or 7 years ago so I have spelled it that way ever since. Texts, Emails, even cards we sign. I sign the card "Awsome Job!" and only sign my own name and leave it out for her to sign. I even argue my point about how I am right and the world is wrong. "The word is pronounced Aw-Some. Not Aw-E-Some. Why the f**k is there an E in there? People are so f**king dumb!" She hates it.

As a native Massachusetts speaker, I concur. The authentic MA phoenetic spelling is "ossum".

Speaking of the word concur, I will constantly use the word disconcur with my wife. She hates it so much all because "it's not in any dictionary known to man". Pshhh! I say if it follows the rules of the language it should be valid. Can't get her to agree with me.

I guess it probably didn't help that I did it once, and she just gave me a look and ignored me so I said it again and poked her again to get a response. I got one.
