"One time I walked into our kitchen to witness my wife tromping around in the dark, like a maniac. (Think of Godzilla stomping around crushing things). It was very random and had never seen her act like that. I bring it up often, she loves it." - u/phantompainintheass

LOL. This is the result of a wife asking her husband to pack her a lunch. Instead, he made a penis joke and sent her on her way with $20. That's the best lunch someone could ask for!

The startle

"I was went to meet my SO at a gas station near a party she had just been at so I could walk her the rest of the way to her dorm. I walked up behind her and I guess that surprised her enough to pee her pants in the middle of the parking lot. Once she started she couldn't stop either so she left a decent size puddle. I nearly fell to the ground laughing." - u/Primal122

The anniversary

"We were cleaning up our yard, raking up twigs and leaves out of the flower beds after the snow melted, that sort of thing. I come around the corner just in time to witness my wife step on a rake. Full on, home run swing CRACK right between the eyes. Straight out of a cartoon, it sat her on her ass and she just looked at the rake, looked at me, looked back at the rake, and hung her head in shame. I couldn't breathe I was laughing so hard." - u/luckyhunterdude
