Exactly what is the entertainment value of faking a pregnancy? Seriously... let's just play this one out.
Scenario 1 (partner would be happy about a baby)
I want to play a trick on my husband. I think it will be super funny to make him think I'm pregnant. This, apparently, is a long-running joke, as I will be getting bellies and ultrasound photos to match the gestational age throughout the joke period. So, I tell him I'm pregnant and start presenting my evidence over several months. Just as he is getting really excited about the new baby, I drop the bomb! I can just hear the laughter, now.
Scenario 2 (partner wouldn't be happy about a baby, but I might get him to do something he doesn't want to do if he THINKS I'm pregnant)
I want to play a trick on my boyfriend/husband to get him to feel greater commitment to me or get him to do something that he doesn't want to do. I tell him I'm pregnant and start presenting my evidence over several months. After I get him to do what I want, I drop the bomb! (insert laughter) Or is there a "fake-a-miscarriage" sister site to all this that I'm unaware of?
Scenario 3 (I have no partner, as he left me, so clearly this would be unwelcome news, and frankly I'm not sure why I'm doing it other than to see him sweat)
I want to play a trick on my ex. I tell him I'm pregnant presenting my evidence over several months. After he changes his underwear a few times, I drop the bomb! (laughter?) Or is there a "fake-a-child-support-order" sister site to all this than I'm unaware of for even more knee-slapping humor?
I truly cannot find a scenario where the target of the joke would find this kind of joke entertaining. Perhaps someone can enlighten me.
