Compared to him, you're... George Clooney?

My husband's not speaking to me. Was what I said really so bad?

I was telling a story about my boss, who has macho jerk tendencies and never wants to show emotion. And I said to my hub, who is fairly reserved emotionally, "I mean, compared to him, you're practically Richard Simmons."
And that was that. He's not speaking to me, and I swear I don't get it. I was trying to make a point about my boss, not him, and yes, it was an exaggeration, but I tend to those.
All he'll say is, "Tell any married guy you know that story, and see what their reactions are. You'll understand."
So, be straight, I can take it.
