This is like the groundhog day of slap waking, but I don't think she was putting any mustard on those slaps.

While trying to restrain my giggling here at the office, the first thing that came to my mind was my mother's oft-repeated complaint that American comedies are terrible because "it's just people throwing pies at each other."

Next experiment: Area man asks his wife to wake him by pegging him. The arrangement lasts for 5 seconds....

I'm a little disappointed in their commitment as well. This would have made a great 365 day supercut. Think of the dubstep/trap remixes you could do. (SPOILER: the drop is a full-fisted punch)

Also smcniven: I totally just googled "pegging" at work. I've never tripped IT's content blockers on a wikipedia page before.

The kind of people who call that slapping are probably the same kind who call it "biting" when there's no blood.

WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS, AREA MAN

As an Area Man who has unfortunately and regularly contributed to household strife by being totally unable to get up in the morning, I've seriously considered this option.

You'd think he'd become conditioned to pulling the covers over his head the second he feels something on the back of his head.

Those were not slaps. Those were gentle pats. I'm guessing a real slap would wake that guy UP.

She really started to enjoy the slapping. He probably had to convince her to stop on day 15.

I resent the implication by the filmmaker that this was directly connected to the finding and killing of Osama bin laden.

I like when she started tickling his head to get him to turn. Wouldn't work with my husband, though. He has a tendency to lash out violently if you do that kind of thing to him while sleeping. More than once, he's kicked me or the cat for getting too up in his grill.

I'm going to need evidence to believe that Area Man. Please submit a waking upon slap video for us to review.

Needs more ice water and less slapping.

Clearly doesn't have a toddler at home. Area man, you could wake up to this every day! and 2 hours before your alarm goes off...

Or a cat. It's fun to be woken up by the little furball pushing all the books off the headboard.

One time I woke from a dream where I had been getting a thorough, incredibly luxurious shampoo done in a salon by a strapping young man..

I woke up, my scalp and hair were actually soaking wet and slightly sticky, and my cocker spaniel was sitting proudly next to me, licking her chops.

That's how you wake up a loved one.

It was boring until she got the idea to tickle him before slapping. Then it got boring again.

I was hoping for one of those to include her yelling PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER, MAN, then throwing a drink in his face.

Woke up last week from a boot being dropped on my face, and as I sat up groggily got a full spray-sneeze from the dog.

What they should do is sell slapping right. Seriously, I'd pay $20 to slap that guy awake. $40 if his wife made me breakfast after. It would be like a Bed and Breakfast, but the Bed is replaced with a slap.

cjorgensen - i had a friend who proposed his restaurant idea to us many years ago : "Flapjacks and Jackslaps". there would be two prices on the menu, dollars and slaps. when it came time to pay, you could either give them money or let your waitperson slap you the requisite number of times.

fun for the whole family! and plus the other patrons get a free show with breakfast!
