Translation:The wife is not particularly beautiful.
Right on, Nishuhn. If you're too thin or not thin enough in the owl's opinion, or too smart, it doesn't hold back either. And, very irritatingly, these rather judgmental comments (as you say, insulting and ever so slightly degrading, and not only about women) are repeated again & again, like a sort of dripping-water-torture or brainwashing. There's much to love about the Owl, but there also is much room for improvement.
