A friend of mine told me about this new
Husband Shopping Center where a woman could go to choose from among many men for her
husband. It was laid out in five floors, with the men increasing in positive

the place. So, a couple of girl friends go to the place to find a man as a
First floor, the door had a sign saying:
"These men have jobs and love kids." The women read the sign and say, "Well
that's better than not having jobs or not loving kids, but I wonder what's further

Second floor says: "These men have
high-paying jobs, love kids, and are extremely good-looking." "Hmmm," say

high-paying jobs, are extremely good-looking, love kids, and help with the housework.
"Wow! say the women. "Very tempting, BUT, there's more further
up!" And up they go.
Fourth floor: "These men have
high-paying jobs, love kids, are extremely good-looking, help with the housework, and have
a strong romantic streak." "Oh, mercy me. But just think! What must
be awaiting us further on!" So up to the fifth floor they go.
The sign on that door said: "This
floor is just to prove that women are impossible to please."
