What is the funniest thing you have ever heard in the studio?

I have a couple that attends my classes regularly.  The husband has a sense of humor.  I was complementing him on his recent weight loss and he looked me straight in the face and told me his wife doesn’t feed him. I totally lost it and so did the rest of the class.  His wife just shook her head.  Maybe you had to be there!
