Mickey-and-Minnie-kissIn the Big Apple, a specialty store opened for women in the market for husbands.

At the entrance, shopping instructions are posted:

* You may visit this store ONLY ONCE!
* There are six floors.
* Merchandise value increases as shoppers ascend.
* Shoppers may choose a husband from any floor.
* Once you leave a floor, you may not return.
* Shoppers cannot go back down except to exit the building!

Last week, a friend of mine went to the Husband Store to find a husband.

On the first floor the sign on the door read:

Floor 1 – These men Have Jobs.

She continued to the second floor, where the sign read:

Floor 2 – These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.

Excited, she decided to check out the third floor:

Floor 3 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.

“Wow,” she thought, before continuing on her way.  On the fourth floor, the sign read:

Floor 4 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Extremely Good Looking and Help with Housework.

“Oh, mercy!” she exclaimed, “I can hardly stand it!”  Urged on by curiosity, she went to the fifth floor:

Floor 5 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.

Although tempted to stay and shop on the 5th Floor, she eventually continued up to the sixth floor, where the sign read:

Donald-Duck-LaughingFloor 6 – You are visitor 3,456,789 to this floor. There are no men on this floor ~ it exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please.

Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

Disappointed, my friend came home empty-handed.

After being sued for gender bias, the store’s owner opened a New Wives store just across the street.

Betty-BoopThe first floor has women that love sex.

The second floor has women that love sex, and enjoy watching sports and drinking beer.

The third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been visited.

No rules.  Just write!
