Shopping, for a husband........

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 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

Not all men are that easy to please! Some men never appreciate what they have until they don't have it.

The grass is never greener on the other side.

That was too funny.

Linda said...

So that's how one goes Husband Shopping! I've always wondered about that! Now ... if you could just get me the address of this place I don't live that far from New York City! :-)

Now that is funny!
Old Irish ditty: I finally met the girl of me dreams- who could ask for more?
She's deaf and dumb, and oversexed- and owns a liquor store...

Very nice mixture of humour and human behavior. Actually, I stumbled across your site, bcos mine is titled Everything is Nothing. You can see it at

secret agent woman said...

Maybe women who keep looking were hoping for good sex? I notice that wasn't in any of the men on the first five floors.

Connie T. said...

Too funny. Curiosity killed the cat though.

Jeff B said...

An accurate assessment of the opposite sexes I'd say.

Thanks for the chuckle

clean and crazy said...

this is too cute, i wanted to give you a heads up, today is the g-mans birthday, and i have posted a birthday card for him on my blog. my goal is to get as many bloggers as possible to copy and post the card on their blog possibly with tonight's 55. he is not feeling well today and probably won't be checking up on us until tonight, so this gives us a chance to give him a surprise birthday cyber party. i hope you can join the fun, i got a lot of other bloggers to invite, have a wonderful day.

Spiky Zora Jones said...

Hahahah! omg...I have to admit I wanted to see what was on the next floor because those previous floors were just not believable...i mean men like that just don't exist, like unicorns and flying pigs, big foot and Oprah. hehehehe.

loved the post sweetie.

Akelamalu said...

Folk email them to me Nessa.

I thought so too Bee :)

Isn't it just Mama Zen?

It's scary just how real it is Dr. John! :0

Welcome Dr. Vaidyanathan, what a coincidence our blog names are almost the same!

Ah that's a point SAW!

Oh yes, that's a good point Connie ;)

Glad you enjoyed it Jeff :)

Glad you enjoyed it Cloudia x

ann said...

well this is hardly equality

what's good for the goose is good for the gander - i reckon there'd definitely have been more takers if the men's qualities had been the same :>)

another oldie but goodie - keep 'em rolling
