The Doghouse

Yes, I know it's ultimately a commercial for somebody (which is why I didn't go to the site mentioned at the end).

But it is very funny (and if you are a guy, take it as a warning this holiday season).

Okay, I can see why the vacuum cleaner would be insulting. It sez that the woman is the only one who is supposed to vacuum (not that this is untrue in reality, reality is that us guys are just fine with a half inch of cat fur, cat barf, kibble fragments, toenail clippings, random dirt, etc. on our carpets and bother vacuuming only when someone comes over to visit), and the tummy exerciser is pretty obvious too (it says you value her appearance more than her brains). But the rest, I'm trying to get this straight. You're saying that the perfect gift must be a) desired by the woman, but b) not needed by the woman? Because if it was needed by the woman and you did not get it before now but rather waited to give it to her as a gift on a special date, then obviously you're a boor and beneath contempt? This bachelor is confused!

You are not confused, Dual-Bag, you have it exactly right. You're not supposed to give someone a gift of something they need. You're supposed to find something that the recipient wants or might want if she had thought about it.

But "need?" You might as well give a cart full of next week's groceries.

And, unless you have express permission and you confirm that, never ever give household appliances.

Am I golden or what?
I just got the Sweet Baby a...
Fifth of Black Jack and two little mini-bottles of Drambuie.
She got me a pneumatic stapler.
She is wife #4, so this knowledge isn't "as issued".

OHP, who says guys are not trainable?

I don't know whether to be angry over the rampant sexism of the advert, painting all blokes as thoughtless bastards, or just quietly pleased that I'm not one.

Then again, for our tenth anniversary my other half asked for a Nintendo DS Lite, specifically a black one. So maybe me being lucky plays a part, too.
