When caught red-handed, wrongfully accused or when the innocent husband just finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, many adopt the passive 'Statue Defence,' gambit. Most men learn this at a very early age and to be fair, almost all do indeed gain traction with its deployment. Overuse though quickly dilutes it's effectiveness. Used sparingly however, it can maintain it's efficacy right into middle-age. The young student of Lifemanship in the clip above is executing the Statue Defence with devastating consequences for his mother's cross face. Well done young fellow!
“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible." T.E. Lawrence; Seven Pillars of Wisdom
