Marital Bliss?

So when I was super little my mom had a few records and one of them was really old and it was called The Bickersons.  I forgot all about it until I found this dump of funny marriage tweets (see below) so I decided to look it up.  There are a couple good jokes in it, but boy oh boy is it a product of olden times.  The characters, Blanche and John seem to both give as good as they get, but you can tell if you listen closely that it is really a product of its time.

But the rhubarb joke kills.

As for the tweets?  Well you tell me which ones you like.  I know which one is my favorite.

I have run the site since 2005. And I have to say I am pretty damn proud of it. I wrote the book Whalewolf (sold on and am not even close to tired so I am just going to keep going. I was born in Portland, Maine and I currently live in New York and Charlotte, North Carolina. I keep hoping that at some point all these weird rebels are gonna say: "SURPRISE!" and act normal. Eight years and counting....

    These are all really funny. Especially the one asking the husband what he wanted for dinner, then told him he was wrong!!! LOOOL. Plus comparing marriage to coffee. SO funny. I needed a post that would boost be up a little today! Very nice! Sharing this.

    If my husband were to grocery shop, that’s exactly what would happen. Also, I know the guy who tweeted that so I’m kind of famous.

    This is hilarious! I love the tweet of the husband being wrong about what he wanted for dinner. Deciding and agreeing on dinner seems to be a frequent conflict between couples!

    This is hilarious. I love how so many of the tweets are about the wife knowing more than the husband, because…yup. LOL.

    This is hilarious. It reminds of when I was a kid. I like the wall paper paste bit.

    This was so funny! I think my husband and I relate to Mark’s. Especially since our 3 year old climbs into bed with us most nights.

    I have pneumonia and I’m laughing my head off and it’s making me cough.

    These are hilarious! I admit I often pull the “at first you don’t succeed” dishwasher trick with my husband. He insists on loading the dishes now too. LOL!

    I still have that Bickerson’s album from my parents, great stuff. Also, a local brewery has ‘domestic bliss’ as one of their ales. 9.5%abv.

    These are all funny. It’s good to see couples having fun with one another. My personal favorite was the “don’t you die on me” although I probably shouldn’t be laughing at that one! lol
