The word 'hubby' needs to be banned in 2016
Rid us of this scourge.

PLEASE, JOIN AN important campaign. Please.

A campaign to rid the world of the scourge that is the word….


Or perhaps to give it the font it feels more at home in…


It’s a word that conjures up images of  ”surprised me with a wkend away he always knows how to cheer me up lol” and brings forward flashes of “the boy did good”, with accompanying pictures of carefully stacked Christmas or birthday presents.

Often, use of the word ‘hubby’ goes hand-in-hand with spoiling of some sort; maybe a dinner out or even just a Dine in for Two meal he picked up from M&S, the dote.

Sometimes it’s used in playful exasperation or mock indignation when he might insist on dragging his long-suffering beloved to see The Force Awakens, or when he gives the kids pasta for breakfast, THE CLUELESS MESSER.

The hatred of the word may seem irrational, but a cursory glance at our old friend Twitter–dot-com reveals we are not alone…


Preach it!


Excellent forward planning here

You’re not alone James

So please, enjoy your husbands, revel in your married bliss. But never, ever say the word ‘hubby’ again. And don’t even get us started on ‘wifey’.

What do you think of the word ‘hubby’?
