I'm presuming that Scoop is a nickname. Seems unlikely that a fellow in the news trade would be called Scoop prior to entering the brotherhood of journalism. So there's no way he would call his wife Mrs. Scoop. Nicknames don't transfer like that.

As we will learn eventually, Scoop is courting decapitation with this humble gift. Believe me: if only he knew what he was dealing with.

But that's a few weeks away.
