Abigail Van Buren ("Dear Abby") once received a letter, signed "Stuck in a Love Triangle," from a 34-year-old woman with three children whose "greedy, selfish, inconsiderate and rude" husband of 10 years had had the audacity to give her a bowling ball—embossed with his own name and drilled to fit his fingers—for her birthday as a present.

Abby's reply, entitled "Wife meets perfect match after husband strikes out," was pulled from circulation when someone pointed out that the letter was the work of a practical joker. Mrs Stuck, of course, was better known as... Marge Simpson!
