"Babe, so I rigged the boxes so that we don't have to pay a ton of money for something that rarely works how we like it to.

I did it all legally too, no need to rip off software developers that overcharge for their mediocre crap, we use free, extremely usable and versatile programs! Yeah that's right, I did it all by myself. Who's the man baby?"
"Uh, you are the worlds greatest husband, please teach me the ways!"
