The ends of introductions

Academic book introductions typically end by thanking the author's devoted and caring spouse. Just once I want to see "And finally, I'd like to thank Jack, Rusty, Susan, and Brett, the three boyfriends and one girlfriend I had and lost during the writing of this book. Though I didn't spend enough time with them because I was working too hard, their senses of humor, good cooking (except Rusty), and skill in bed (mmmm, Susan) won't be forgotten."
