A husband shopping center (HusbandMart) has just opened where a woman
may go to choose a husband from among many men. The store is composed of
six floors, and the men increase in positive attributes as the shopper
ascends the flights. There is, however, a catch. As you open the door to
any floor you may choose a man from that floor, but if you go up a
floor, you cannot go back down except to exit the building.
So a woman goes to the shopping center to find a husband. On the first
floor the sign on the door reads: "Floor 1 – These men have jobs."
The woman reads the sign and says to herself, "Well, that's better than
my last boyfriend, but I wonder what's further up?" So up she goes.
The second floor sign reads: "Floor 2 – These men have jobs and love kids."
The woman remarks to herself, "That's great, but I wonder what's further
up?" And up she goes again.
The third floor sign reads: "Floor 3 – These men have jobs, love kids
and are extremely good looking."
"Hmmm, better" she says. "But I wonder what's upstairs?"
The fourth floor sign reads: "Floor 4 – These men have jobs, love kids,
are extremely good looking and help with the housework."
"Wow!" exclaims the woman, "very tempting. BUT, there must be more
further up!" And again she heads up another flight.
The fifth floor sign reads: "Floor 5 – These men have jobs, love kids,
are extremely good looking, help with the housework and have a strong
"Oh, mercy me! But just think… what must be awaiting me further on?"
So up to the sixth floor she goes.
The sixth floor sign reads: "Floor 6 – You are visitor
123,456,789,012,345 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 HusbandMart and have a nice day."
