It's easy to get complacent in a relationship, which is why it's important to spice things up every once in awhile. Some men take their significant others out for a spontaneous romantic dinner for example. Others come home with bouquets of flowers, not to say "i'm sorry" but simply to say "you rock." And some men like to keep things interesting by leaving cardboard cutouts of clowns in the washing machine and pretending to cut their partner's hair off when they've got their back turned. After all, nothing says "I love you" quite as much as a good old practical joke...right?

Scroll down for more examples, compiled by Bored Panda, of men who are willing to risk their relationship for the sake of a laugh or two. Don't forget to vote for your favorite!
