The Husband Store

November 4th, 2007

A store that sells new husbands has just opened in New York City.

A woman may go there to choose a husband.

At the entrance there is a description of how the store operates:

  1. You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the cost of the product increase as the shopper ascends the flights.
  2. You may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, however you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, my wife, claiming dissatisfaction with my performance as a husband, went to the Husband Store to find a new one.

On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 - Men who have jobs.

She keeps going up.

The second floor sign reads:

Floor 2 - Men who have jobs and love kids.

She keeps going up.

The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 - Men who have jobs, love kids, and are very good looking.

“Wow,” she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

The fourth floor the sign reads:

Floor 4 - Men who have jobs, love kids, are good looking, and help with the housework.

“Oh, mercy me!” she exclaims, “I can hardly stand it”

Still, she goes to the fifth floor where the sign reads:

Floor 5 - Men who have jobs, love kids, are good looking, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes on to the sixth floor.

The sixth floor 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.
