Men&Women Jokes
A store that sells new husbands has open 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 five floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the stairs. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up the 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, where the sign reads: Floor 1 - These men have jobs and love kids. "That's nice," she thinks, "but I want more." So she continues upward, The second floor sign reads: Floor 2 - These men have jobs, love kids and are extremely good looking."Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going. She gets to the third floor and the sign reads: Floor 3 - These men have jobs, lve 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 fourth floor and the sign reads: Floor 4 - These men have jobs, loves kids, gorgeous, help with housework. She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the next floor, where the sign says: Floor 5 - 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.
