Stuff like using goofy voices in public places, howling at the moon, and making up stories for the cat. What kind of kooky stuff do you do with your partner?

1. Shake Hands Like Business Partners

“If my wife and I are holding hands and we somehow end up in a handshake position we shake vigorously and say hyperbolic business jargon like ‘good business deal, business partner.’ Or ‘production is hitting our KPIs this quarter.’ Done it for years and we do actually own a business together now but we still do this.” — Googunk

2. Pantsing

“My wife likes to pants me (pull down my pants from behind) when I’m doing things where both hands are occupied, like cooking or carrying things. I put up with it because she get really great belly laughs every time she is successful, and I love it when she laughs like that.” — pejeol

3. Trapping Heads

“Sometimes, we take the t-shirt we’re wearing, and trap the other persons head under it, holding them to our stomachs and telling them that they are now safe.” — FillinThaBlank

4. Codewords

“We have a codeword to determine if the other person is a shapeshifter. Randomly we will ask each to repeat it. Always causes a giggle or even a concerned ‘oh god…'” — TheRealDannySugar

5. Pegs On Clothes

“Secretly put pegs on each other’s clothes as we go about our day and wait to see how long it takes for one another to notice.” — chiefpea

6. Goofy Voices In Public

“The f*cking goofing voices in public. It’s made worse by the fact I’m 60 and she’s 50. Grocery aisle or any other store and one of us sees something cool, boom. Fake ass, exaggerated semi-aristocratic whatever the fuck accent we can contrive and, ‘Ooooh! So verah fanceh!’ Then the other chimes in, ‘So verah fanceh! What does it do?’ And off we go. Insufferable, really.” — Corvideye

7. Penis

“When my wife has a hard time coming up with a word, I suggest the word ‘penis.’ She says be careful, someday you’re going to say that in the wrong company.” — ImA12GoHawks

8. Messing Up The Calendar

“I used to mess up the name of the month on our dry erase calendar and now it has turned into us constantly doing it wrong on purpose to see who notices. Right now it is apparently Septemble.” — zimmerman_ty12

9. Stripping To Avoid Chores

“Before we had a kid, we used to strip to avoid running out for anything. It started with ‘you run out, I don’t have any shoes on.’ Then one day I mentioned we were out of milk, and neither of us had shoes on. My husband immediately dropped his pants around his ankles and declared ‘I don’t have pants on either.’ After that, every time one of us would say ‘oh, we’re all out of *blank*…’ we would exchange a quick glance and immediately start stripping to see who could be the farthest from ‘ready to leave the house.’ Good times.” — MamaSquash8013

10. Tag

“Tag, basically. I chase her around the house, furniture, etc. There have been both broken possessions and injuries. The worst was several years ago when I broke my toe trying to run past the fridge and kicked it at full speed. We still do it, though.” — Floppie7th

11. Bobby Hill

“We have a little paper cut out of Bobby Hill that we hide in random locations for the other to find, days or weeks later. It’s currently in a stack of toilet paper at her place waiting to be found again.” — mackerley

12. Blooping In The Store

“When we can’t find each other in the store we ‘bloop’ and the other person replies with a long ‘blooop’ until we locate each other. When people are around they’re pretty quiet which maybe makes it more awkward/creepy for the passerby.” — MisanthropicRN

13. Thousands Of Proposals

“Whenever either of us take off our ring for any reason (shower, washing dishes, gardening, etc) the other will grab it and put it back on them while ‘proposing.’ We have probably proposed to each other several thousand times by now.” — mrsmedeiros_says_hi

14. Butt Grabbing

“My wife and I have an unspoken thing we’ve done to each other for 10+ years where we sneak up behind each other, grab the other’s butt, and if the grabee’s butt tenses up the grabber will whisper ‘Fear…’ If the grabee goes without tensing up, then it’s usually ‘OH?! NO FEAR FOR YOU?!’ I have no idea where it came from or how it started, but it’s a joke that’s endured almost as long as our marriage and made for some funny moments over the years.” — Daedalus0313

15. Hand-In-Mouth

“Where to begin? If we are close enough when the other person starts yawning, we try to get as much of our hand in their mouth as possible.” — T4nkofDWrath

16. Making Up Lore For The Cat

“We make up lore for our cat. One of us will say something stupid and random like ‘he’s a stone cold businessman’ and the other will build on it, and we’ll just keep escalating until one of us dies of laughter. And now that same cat is a chicken sauce businessman, a celebrated figure in Japan, and a renowned soccer player, complete with a fleshed out backstory…” — enzymathicc

17. LeBron Toy

“We get Bark Box for our dog, and a few months back the theme was space jam. So we ended up with this tiny stuffed LeBron that our dog couldn’t care less about. So now we try to prank each other with LeBron. We have gotten multiple pics of each other sleeping with LeBron just chilling there. It’s quite entertaining, if not bizarre.” — Safraninflare

18. Howling At The Moon

“We howl at the moon like wolves. But at totally random times across the house. And if one of us does it, the other is obligated to join in.” — Noogatuck

19. “Hi”

“Me and my wife randomly greet each other with ‘hi,’ even if we’re just sitting on the sofa watching TV.” — obsertaries

20. Cyclops

“Sometimes my gf and I put our heads so close together that it looks we both only got 1 eye, and then one of us shouts ‘CYCLOP!!'” — reaL_phL·10d
