Lets break it down. With the word keggle:

1. You know it's a kettle

2. You know it's a converted keg

3. You know the size is 15.5 gallons.

and all with one word. How can that be gay?

It could imply  "Significant other who must be obeyed" My wife made it a point to say that
our wedding vows would not include the obey part. It didn't bother me. I just see it as a
"I have to consider the feelings of my other half before I buy another brewery item."

She is a pro at rolling her eyes when I say I need something else for the brewery.

I use it. I think it's funny. Do I 'obey' her; no. She doesn't tell me what to do and I don't tell her what to do. Works out great. I'm sure she has acronyms for me on cooking and housecleaning forums...... :o


I like keggle too. My keggle is very hetero!

  Holly said I had to vote yes. Well, I put my big boy man pants on, and voted no pants. (please no one tell her!)   ;D

We kid.  She is type A.  Attorney.  I am the outgoing one.

I am about the only one that she reasons with.

The accronym is a play on the tired old image of a working class guy not being able to brew or get his gadgets as fast as he wants.  That is all.

How about LDH? That's what Melissa calls me. I thought it meant Loving Devoted Husband, but I was wrong.

Not to get serious--but anybody know where the expression came from? As far as I know it was Rumpole of the Baily, the great John Mortimer character of novels and TV. A brilliant lawyer and great human being, Rumpole was hen-pecked unmercifully by SWMBO--a moniker he would mutter only under his breath. He was a good man living under the heel of a rather stupid, bullying woman. Tragic because that's not the way it's supposed to be. So, am I offended? Not really. Would I ever use the expression? Never. FWIW, I think we've already gone a bit too far down the path of male feminization.

In the context of a poll answer, and especially SWMBO I think it's doable. I think it's the equivalent of "meh".
But my OCDness is what compelled me to come up with a stupid acronym.
