Most guys figure out the best way to GET OUT of doing stuff around the house that you hate is to do it poorly.  One load of stuffing blue jeans into the same wash as her lily-white sheets and you're off the laundry hook forever and ever, amen.

Well, BLAKE SHELTON is using that very strategy to make sure MIRANDA LAMBERT is the one doing ALL of their wedding planning.

Blake says, quote, "I don't want to brag, but I think the way that I've weaseled out of a lot of these duties is brilliant.  It's brilliant!

"(And) this is by design, I'm tellin' you.  Like when she asks me for my opinion or to go to a website and says, 'You know, hey, will you pick out somethin' here?'  I will purposely pick out the ugliest, crappiest lookin' dishes or napkins.

"And she'll say, 'Ah, you know what, I'll do it,' and then I go back outside, you know, and burn stuff... which is something I like to do."

(QUESTION:  Guys, what household chore did you screw up on purpose to make sure she'd never ask you to do it again?)

(Also:  Ladies, turnabout is fair play, right?  So what duty did YOU pretend to be clueless about . . . or too feminine to handle . . . so he'd be stuck doing it forever?)
