good wife/bad wife

Ran across a link to an old marital rating scale on Slate today and it was terrible enough that I had to talk about it more. If you ever feel nostalgia for a bygone era, reading this might make you rethink that.
According to the scale some negative traits in a wife are: wearing red nail polish, failing to sew buttons or darn socks regularly, having crooked seams in pantyhose, and wears soiled or ragged dresses and aprons around the house.
Conversely, positive traits include: the ability to carry an interesting conversation, dressing for breakfast, lets husband sleep late on Sundays and holidays, and never goes to bed angry--always makes up first.

I rated poorly. I don't dress for breakfast, much less eat/serve it. You'd make a good wife!
