When he asks his wife what she thinks of his new purchase, she responds, “What is that? What the hell did you guys do?” 


When the man repeats his question, his wife calls his setup “ridiculous” and “so dumb.” 

“You’re nuts, that’s not staying there all Christmas season!” she snaps. 

She then vents her frustration about how she hasn’t been able to decorate with her choice of lights past holidays. 

“I don’t get the white lights on the tree, I don’t get the white lights anywhere I want them!” 

When the man attempts to argue with his wife that there is nothing wrong with the colorful lights, she tells him to “shut your face.”
