It makes this single guy happy.

Sheeet, he shoulda given her a Dyson. No dual-bag bool-sheet. The Dyson doesn't even have a bag. Sucker.

Somebody gave their old lady a vacuum?

I don't get YouTube anymore.

But the general rule is, if you want to progenate your gene pool, don't give her something that plugs in.

It depends on what and where it plugs in!! HEHE!!!

I have spent most of my 26 year marriage living in that dog house!

Um, did any of you notice at the very end of that whole thing that it was an ad courtesy of the Jewelry Department at JC Penney?




Thought so.

Am I the only person who thinks that the women in this are behaving like spoilt brats?

"If you really love me you'll gimme the shiny expensive thing I want now!"

Who needs that hassle?

Amy, if it helps, I noticed the jewelry when I was checkin' out her rack.

I'd be in the doghouse for good if I bought my special special lady something from the jewelry department of JC Penney. Actually, anything from JC Penney.

Plus, the diamond cartel is friggin' EVIL. Don't believe the hype, ladies. Diamonds have no value, the entire industry is a swindle dreamed up by DeBeers.

Whew, I feel better now.

I do it like this - I ask my wife what she wants, then I go buy it. Yeah, not romantic, but at least she gets what she wants. Better that than for me to buy something she might not like.

I have bought her things in the past not using the method mentioned above and it worked out fine. And I've never bought her a vacuum cleaner or any other domestic device if you will. I'm a lot of things, but I'm not stupid.

Notice also that as he put the wrapped vacuum cleaner down, she was briefly clapping like a trained seal.

Also, Frederick, kudos on creating a funnier joke with the link that appears by clicking your name.

Actually, I love gifts like vacuum cleaners. A whole chapter in the book I'm working on is devoted to my VitaMix, which the Goat gave me for xmas one year.

I did think the guy with the thigh-zer-sizer was funny as hell.

Rory! You noticed!

First they commercialised "Joe" and I stood by and did nothing. Then they commercialised "Dave" and still I watched. Then they commercialised "Sam" and "Bill" and "Doug".

By the time they got to "Fred" there was no one left to save me...
