Ain't that the truth. (in Off-topic)

A store that sells new husbands has 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.


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

Hey! I resemble, err, resent those remarks!

Fatil1ty February 6 2009 1:36 PM EST

What's on floor 3 of the New Wives store? I'm curious :)

Mesoshort February 6 2009 1:40 PM EST

Pamela Anderson. And Jessica Alba.

AdminShade February 6 2009 1:41 PM EST

Oh, in that case I might even try for floor number 4...

AdminTal Destra February 6 2009 1:41 PM EST

Mesoshort February 6 2009 1:43 PM EST

Oh my, have you heard about the comments she said on Oprah! Taboo indeed ;)

Ariac February 6 2009 2:14 PM EST

I'm convinced Jessica Alba is perfect. She was in Sin City. She's Hot. She hates and has called out Bill O'Reilly/Fox News. And...look at her...

I'm with Ariac.

I have heard it before, several times. But it makes me crack up for real each time! This must be the joke that spawned the Montepython sketch with the worlds most dangerous joke :-D

PearsonTritonRaveshaw February 6 2009 2:50 PM EST

What sketch?

P.S. Good joke. xD

Wasp [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] February 6 2009 3:05 PM EST

I've heard this before but it's still a good one!

Oooh, something else Ariac and I can argue about. Bill O'Reilly, that is, not Jessica Alba. ;)

In other news; very funny. And, I'm assuming, true. ;P
