Our spouses are our best friends, our rocks, our boo thangs forever-ever. It’s just that sometimes, we want to hug them around the neck. With leather clad hands. Tight. Tighter. So tight that their arms go limp. We would never do it, of course, but marriage means keeping the spark alive by acting just batshit enough that they believe we would.
This ultimate, and very much unofficial, spouse-off includes 25 brutal tweets from the funny hubses and wifeys of Twitter. Think of these as an affectionate rap battle where you call the other person an asshole, but lovingly.
My arm could be chopped off and I could be covering the wound with paper towels and my wife would be like, "Too many. You're wasting them!"

My wife is in charge of the television remote so I guess we are just slowly scrolling through the guide tonight.

My husband and I are playing a fun game where he texts me pictures of himself in potential new glasses frames and I text back I hate those.

My husband's so smart.
He's prepared for the Apocalypse by leaving pants puddled on the family room floor so he can make a quick exit.

Husband called to me tonight, “What’re you doing in the bathroom? Kids need to get in bed.”
I will make his obituary as eloquent as I can.

The rap battle at the end of 8 Mile, except me and my wife arguing about who does the dishes more often.

Dear husbands: When you’re in a heated discussion with your wife and she suddenly pauses, turns & says “WHAT?” it’s not bc she didn’t hear you, it’s cause she’s ‘bout to low key stab your ass.

"You always leave all the lights on!"
-my husband, who has never once turned off any light or the TV before going to bed, or leaving the house, or just going upstairs…

My wife reminded me she carried our kids in her body for 9 months, so I reminded her I probably carried them in my balls longer than that.

Me: *diligently picks up every coin I find and puts it in a locked container so it’s not a choking hazard.*
Husband: *casually dumps out pockets of change every night onto the closest flat surface.*

How people walk when they’re:
DATING *holding hands*
ENGAGED *arms locked*
MARRIED *one person is 5 feet in front of the other and yelling back at them for parking so far away*

My kid is walkin around the house, asking "Where's my balls?"
I don't know, son, but check your mom's purse. That's where mine are.

Sometimes I hang my husband's work shirts on my daughter's pink hangers to remind him that even though he makes the money, I run this place.

My wife had me take out more life insurance and now there's no grip left on the bath mat. Weird.

Wife: *laughing uncontrollably* So THIS is your midlife crisis??
Me: *struggles to get out of a Mazda Miata*

My husband gave me a break by doing the grocery shopping, but he didn’t take the kids with him so, I don’t think he knows how breaks work.

I made my wife time me while I sprinted around the store in the shoes I was trying on and now I don't have to go shopping with her anymore.
