This is a Compliment?
On my list of television commercials that I absolutely loathe is a current one for NutriSystem. There are several of these, but in the particular one I hate, a woman who has lost weight brags "My husband calls me his 'trophy wife.'"

This is a compliment? The trophy wife is the bimbo he marries after Wife #1 works to put him through school while he's composing his doctoral thesis or sticks with him during the lean years of walk-up flats until he becomes a millionaire only to be shoved aside for the pretty young thing looking for her sugar daddy. I wouldn't consider that a positive description!
