    Saw this on BoingBoing yesterday, which shows the awesome graphics as well, and subsequently some kind soul uploaded the entire thing to Flickr, which is well worth a look.

    Most amusing!

    I notice you failed to rate your good lady wife (or at least failed to inform us of the score). Such wisdom from someone so young.:D

    he didn't dare even score it! :D

    (though in looking at Lau's links looks like I got the better spouse :eek:)

    </bad wife>

    though on the original image I 'score' most highly on the merits of number 11. ;)

    My wife scores 16, but only because many of the "demerit" items simply don't apply. Not only are her hose seams not crooked, she never *wears* hose. Plus she has a job and I cook most of the meals. I'd imagine if the creators of this survey thought those were options she'd score about a -32.

    The "s" word? Is "sex" a dirty word?

    I read the whole thing on Flickr, and though some things are dated, there's also some really good advice in there. There's a similar test for husbands in the same pamphlet. Most things just seem to fall under the general umbrella of being kind and loving toward one another.

    That's not to say that EVERYTHING is great in those lists; I merely wanted to point out that there's a lot of good things in them that still hold true today, and probably always will.

    FOR HUSBANDS:
    -Has date with wife at least once per week (five points per date)
    -Helps wife with dishes, caring for children, scrubbing
    -Often tells wife he loves her (five points)
    -Ardent lover--sees that wife has orgasm in marital congress (twenty points)
    -Gives wife real movie kisses, not dutiful "peck" on the cheek

    FOR WIVES:
    -Laughs at husband's jokes and his clowning
    -Has spunk--will defend her ideals and religion
    -Often tells husband she loves him (five points)
    -Is unselfish and kind-hearted

    What's the red nail polish thing all about? Is that some hidden code for "looking to f***" or what?

    Annndy!: I think that back in the day, prostitutes commonly wore red nail polish.

    Well, by the OP, I'm a pretty bad wife.

    My score goes up a little using the 100-question version.

    I'll have to show this to my boyfriend and see if HE thinks I'd make a good wife! ;) Maybe I'll get a ring out of him yet.

    I figure, if I can cook, clean (sometimes), remember to feed the dog, and actively contribute while watching a sporting event, I'm ahead of most :D

    That makes no sense. Why do you get points for dressing for breakfast? Nude breakfast FTW!

    The scars she'd get from the heated oil in the pan wouldn't be very attractive.


    I get deducted points for not cleaning the top of the milk bottle before opening it. :eek:
