The Husband Store

A store that sells new husbands has just opened in New
York City ,where a woman may go to choose a husband.

Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of
how the store operates: You may visit this store ONLY
ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products
may increase 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 you cannot go
back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a
husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs.
She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where
the sign reads:

Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids. "That's nice", she thinks, "but I want more ."So she
continues upward. The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are
Extremely Good Looking. "Wow," she thinks, but feels
compelled to keep going. She goes to the fourth floor
and the sign reads:

Floor 4 - 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 the sign reads:

Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead
Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong
Romantic Streak. She is so tempted to stay, but she goes
to the sixth floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 6 - 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 Store.

PLEASE NOTE:

To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opened
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, fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been
visited.

I think it was Billy Crystal who said that women need a reason to have sex, but men just need a place.
