Recently opened for the holiday shopping season, the New Husband Store, where they sell new husbands, opened in Los Angeles. Women may look around and choose a new husband of their liking. There are a few store rules the women must follow while browsing for a new husband. These rules are promently posted near the store’s entrance. One very important and highly visible rule reads:
You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the product increases as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but the shopper cannot go back down except to exit the building!
There are also directory signs that describe what type of husband’s are available on each floor. The directory signs are displayed at the beginning of each up escalators
A woman enters the Husband Store to find a new husband. She reads the signs and heads for the escalator.
On the first floor the sign on the escalator reads:
Floor 1 – These men Have Jobs.
The second floor sign reads:
Floor 2 – These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.
The third floor sign reads:
Floor 3 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.
Wow, I should look around this floor she thinks, but feels compelled and continues to keep going.
She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:
Floor 4 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-Dead Handsome, and Help With Housework.
“Oh my God!” she thinks, ” This store has everything. I can hardly stand it!”
Still she proceeds and goes to the fifth floor where the sign reads:
Floor 5 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-Dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.
Oh yeah, that’s the one…she is so tempted to stay, but she goes on to the sixth floor and the sign reads:
Floor 6 – You are visitor number 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 Store.
To avoid any law suits and gender bias charges, the New Husband Store’s owner also opened a New Wives store just across the street. The store’s rules of operation are the same.
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.
