I was going to terminate the squirrel I'd trapped, but SWMBO insisted that I release it in a nearby park.

Pronounced 'swimbo': 'she who must be obeyed'. Your wife, dumbnuts! She's the kind that makes you go to SOFEs 'significant-other forced events'!
A gentler form of SWMBO is a GLW: 'good lady wife', rare as a two-talied lizard!
