I feel like I should be frightened that the (only slightly) colored parodies of ourselves were received with such deadpan replies... then I remember: Switzerland!
Ah no! That's not fair! You should say ... then I remember: It's the Englishforum!

I thought both introductions were very entertaining, too. I'm a little perplexed by some of the more acerbic responses to the OP's boyfriend/fiancee/husband.
My initial reaction when I read them:

One good thing about reading this thread however is that it reminded me to take a trip to the original Pickwick's this weekend!!!

Having said that, I'm with AbFab when it comes to explaining a joke (or a blatant fabrication). Throw it out there and forget about it. If you have to come back to explain it, you've lost it.
