Hubby is always right!

Did you hear about the One Red Paperclip Guy?
His story reminded me, in reverse, of Hans Christian Andersen´s fairytale "What the Old Man Does Is Always Right". It´s about a farmer who went to market with his only horse and returned with a bag full of rotten apples and was rewarded for his "lucky" buisness with a big hug and kiss from his wife.
This paperclip-guy started out at the other end, with one red paperclip and ended up with a house. He surely knows how to play his tune. Let´s hope that his woman was at least equally as happy with his buisnessdeals as the Danish farmer´s wife with her hubby´s in Andersen´s tale!
