An Aussie Husband Shows His Wife He Cares

I don’t know what I would do without email. Sure I get a lot of spam and and heaps of people running one scam or other but I also get a lot stuff that makes me burst out laughing. This is one that I found to be extremely funny, but that may be because of my Aussie humor. I’ve posted it just as I received it. What do you think, did you find it to be funny?

A note from a compassionate, loving and caring Aussie husband…


A couple of weeks ago, I was sitting on the patio, drinking beer and watching my wife mow the lawn.

Cheryl from next door saw us and was so upset that she came over and yelled at me, “You lazy prick! Sitting there drinking beer while your poor wife pushes that ancient lawn mower around! Get up off your fat arse and give her a break !”

I thought ‘Shit woman!’ Took another swig from my stubby, wiped the cold foam from my lips, lifted my sunnies, stared directly at this nosey cow and told her in no uncertain terms to sod off and mind her own business. I told her my wife had green fingers and that she really enjoyed gardening.

After a few days I felt really bad, so I went out and bought her a ride-on mower to show my sensitive side. I’m really proud of the deal I got and also very proud that my wife can now sit down while mowing the lawn. Yes guys, we should take good care of our wives… then maybe they’ll take good care of us.

I’ve attached a picture below…hope it comes through OK

Heck, if nothing else it shows off our Aussie ingenuity!

  1. Hi Sire
    Definitely Aussie humour :-) You sure do some interesting posts and I look forward to visiting your blog to see what you have for your readers each week.
    BTW I now have KeywordLuv thanks to my blogging coach. He set it up for me and I’ve been encouraged at the new visitors to my site who are now commenting. The blogging community sure is supportive.

    1. The blogging community is the best, which is probably one of the reasons I love blogging so much.

      Looks like you’ve got a good blogging coach behind you, must be cool being able to call on someone for help.

      As to what I’m going to come up with next, heck most of the time I even surprise myself.

  2. Oh my god that picture almost made me shoot coffee through my nostrils! :-D

  3. Totally Crazy, it was a good one; I just send the photo to my brother-in-law. He going to love it.

      1. Yes it does need the joke to go along with it. Then again, just imagining someone using that contraption is quite amusing.

  4. Hi Sire,

    Hilarious!!! I will definitely be sharing this!!

  5. I was having the ‘awww..’ moment until the picture! LOL! Although I must agree it took some initiative to create one ride-on mower like that. (Looks fun, can exercise too!)

    A mild humor of the day. :) But a good message though.

      1. What market? She’s better off with her old mower. :furious_tb: But someone who wants to make loan mowing more difficult would certainly buy that. Now, how many will they be? :grin2_ee:

        1. I don’t know James, this one would sure improve the muscle tone of her legs, not to mention the weight reduction effect. That’s always a positive. :innocent1_tb:

  6. Sire, gave you a tweet. Too funny. This reminds me of the time my friend’s friend tied a lawnmower to his tracker and rode around and cut the lawn.

  7. I hope this is just for laughs but I know this is happening in real life. I have seen couples with the exact predicament, wives working while their husbands are not doing anything. =)

    1. Of course it’s just for laugh, and I’m sure it happens in real life, and if it does then that’s awful, but this post is more on the humorous side.

  8. Mmmm – dunno. The ole ocker jokes! I’m ozzie but a female!
    I s’pose I’m not betraying my sisters if I tell ya I thought it was very funny.
    good one

  9. Niece one. I really thought that he bought her a really niece lawn mower that you could ride on and I thought that was very sweet but in the end I burst into tears as I laugh at the lawn mower that he bought for her wife.

  10. This was totally funny! Only as a joke though!

  11. Haha, thats the spirit. :)

  12. I was already touched with the story until I saw the Nice one. He was just indeed trying to help, its just that he needs to put more effort to it. I think its the thought that counts after all. But still, I can’t stop myself from

    1. If you’re laughing then I reckon the post worked.

  13. Too funny! Does it come in different colors? [grins]

    1. I’m sure your husband could paint it your favorite color for you :)

  14. I must forward this to my dad. It sounds like something he would say and my mom and dad have been married for over 60 years. Guess a sense of humor comes in handy.

    Maybe you can answer a question for me. I’m registered at comment luv and i notice that others have the little icon show up on their comments and I don’t. Maybe I should be going to the site to find out,just thought you would probably know and wouldn’t mind helping me out.

    1. Hey Gwen, I reckon you should go back and just make sure that you filled your url out correctly.

  15. Oh my goodness! What a crack up! The emotions that ran through me as I read this post! In the end it sure made me smile!!

    1. Thanks Linda, I’m always pleased to hear the post had the desired effect.

    1. Hey Perry, you’re right, the exercise factor would be a definite positive. :smile1_ee:

  16. Ya, I like what I read….funny ha ha…Really funny. Ride-On Mover…That is really great humor mate

    1. Yeah, thanks Alex.

  17. Brilliant Sire. The stuff you get in your inbox posts are some of my favourite on here. My funny coincidence, the day you posted this, my husband and I celebrated a decade of being wed but I didn’t get a gift like this. I feel a little cheated now. :wink_ee:

    1. Tell you what El, you just send him my way and I’ll give him some tips on what to get you next time. :innocent1_tb:

  18. The funny thing for me is that as I sat on my front porch reading this post with my laptop, my wife is actually mowing our yard. I showed her the pic of the rider but she said she’ll keep her Craftsman rider. I would have mentioned the one above offers better exercise but I’ve learned better that that in the years we’ve been married.

    1. Brian, you kill me. :lol_ee: I’m surprised she didn’t run you over with it. :nono_tb: :laugh_tb:

      1. She would have really had a fit if I had gone on with my first impulse – to snap a picture to show everyone instead of just saying it. I know that would have blown my lawn mowing service though ;)

        1. That’s for sure, not to mention that you’d probably be sleeping on the couch.

  19. Did you check to see if you could get 2 for 1, that neighbor is probably jealous now!

    Gardening, hilarious!

    1. I’m sure this is a one of a kind Kissie :tongue_wink_ee:

  20. i was about to comment on how sweet a husband you are and show my sentiments until I browse down and saw that contraption! LOL! I’m glad she didn’t mow over your laptop.

    1. Actually I wasn’t the husband portrayed in the post Paul.

  21. I hate the abbreviation “LOL” b/c I always wondered if anyone really “laughs out loud” but I just did! That’s too good.

    1. Yep, I’m just glad I’m not the only one that thought it was funny.

  22. Very funny! I thought “how sweet of you” until I saw the photo of the mower! LOL!!

  23. I laughed at this pic. I refuse to type LOL or HAHAHA. Although I just did.

    Very funny.

    1. Glad you liked it.

  24. It’s true.
    As an Aussie husband I concede we are a feckless, self indulgent lot, although my wife is untrained in mowing lawns at this point.
    Regardless, my wife is a great all-rounder and definitely contributes her fair share to the relationship, much to my regret.

    1. Hey Brenden, welcome aboard mate. What part of Australia are you from, and why would you regret the fact that she contributes a lot to the relationship?

  25. Twitter:
    You know, one of these days I’m going to send one of these to your wife so she can get in on the joke. Then I’m going to checkmate you as extra punishment. :thumbup_tb: :tongue2_tb: Still, I loved the image; I knew something was coming but wasn’t sure what until I got there.

  26. Lol Sire. I was having a nice read scrolling from top to bottom until I saw that! I was practically laughing off my pants :D:D Hmm did your wife see this post?? :gulp_ee:
