If “pork pie” was a euphemism for a kinky sex move we might have been impressed, however a husband in the UK has done himself no favours by gifting his wife an actual pork pie for her recent birthday.
And I thought the year my husband bought me a set of pots and pans was bad. Because it's the 1950s and women can always use a new set of pots and pans...
Thankfully we live in a social media age and the wife shared her sad tale on Mumsnet so we could all delight in it. And it's not like she started it. She was merely responding to the following question that had been posed:
What is the shittiest present a dp [domestic partner] has even got you?
When confronted by his wife over his choice of gift the husband tried to explain that he found his wife difficult to buy for, but he knows she likes pork pies so figured that would do.
