@MademoiselleL: I like this idea… Or shortening it to something like “FANCOF.” She’d get it but no one else would 🙂

I think if its an inside joke it’d be a great idea! I definitely say go for it! Fiance said jokingly yesterday that he was going to engrave what ever he gets his best man with “Dumba**” he was kidding but honestly I think if he did his best friend would get a huge kick out of it because thats all they call each other when they are together. Good thing I’ll be ordering everything for everyone though so he doesn’t sneak it in! I don’t think other people would find it near as amusing!

My only question would be: could other people see it while she’s wearing it? Probably not, but if it would be kept private so that only she would see it and wouldn’t have to answer questions about such an interesting quote, I say go for it. She’ll read it and think fondly of you/laugh every time she sees it. If there’s the potential of other people seeing it and having to explain an inside joke that wouldn’t be funny to others, I would say skip it and include it in the card or something.

That’s what I figured. I have a visible tattoo on the inside of my wrist that’s in another language. Not super private but it kind of bothers me having to translate it when people ask. Just a thing to think about….

I like the idea of an inside joke, but I think I would phrase it as ‘You, dear, are cute and funny. 😉 ‘ or something along those lines. She’ll get the reference, and you don’t actually have to mention farts (which I agree are neither cute nor funny!)
