Subject: New store
A brand new store has just opened in New York City that sells husbands (to go). When women go to choose a husband, they have to follow the instructions at the entrance:
"You may visit this store ONLY ONCE!" There are SIX floors, and the value of the products increase as you ascend the flights. You may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you CANNOT go back down, except to exit the building!
So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband.
On the 1st floor the sign on the door reads:
Floor ONE - These men have jobs.
The 2nd floor sign reads:
Floor TWO - These men Have Jobs and
The 3rd floor sign reads:
Floor THREE - These Men Have Jobs, Love
Kids, AND are Extremely Good-Looking!
("Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going)
So, she goes to the Fourth floor and the sign reads:
Floor FOUR - These Men Have Jobs,
Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good-Looking,
AND Help with Housework.
("Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!")
Still, she goes to the Fifth Floor, and sign reads:
Floor FIVE - These men Have Jobs, Love
Kids, AND are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help
with Housework, AND Have a Strong
Romantic Streak and Sex Drive .
(She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the Sixth Floor where the sign reads:
Floor SIX - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband
To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opens a New Wives store just across the street.
The First Floor has wives that love sex.
The Second Floor has wives that love sex and have money.
The Third through Sixth floors have never been visited.
