    To know him is to loath him.

    Must have had some charm before, seeing as he’s had 5 wives.

    When they came out of the ether, it was all over.

    I guess this could be classed as “sexist.”


    Recently a “Husband Super Store” opened where women could go to choose a husband from among many men. It was laid out over five floors, with the men increasing in positive attributes as the women ascended. The only rule was, once a woman opened the door to any floor, she had to choose a man from that floor; if she went up a floor she couldn’t go back down except to leave the place; never to return.

    A couple of girlfriends went to the shopping center to find a husband…
    .
    First floor
    The door had a sign saying:
    .
    “These men have jobs and love kids.”The women read the sign and said, “Well, that’s better than not having a job or not loving kids, but I wonder what’s further up?” So up they went.
    .

    Second floor
    The sign read:
    .
    “These men have high paying jobs, love kids, and are extremely good looking.” “Hmmm,” said the ladies, “but I wonder what’s further up?”
    .
    Third floor
    This sign read:
    .
    “These men have high paying jobs, are extremely good looking, love kids and help with the housework.” “Wow,” said the women, “Very tempting.” But there was another floor so further up they went.
    .
    Fourth floor
    This door had a sign saying:
    .

    “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,” they cried, “Just think what must be awaiting us further on!”

    .
    So up to the fifth floor they went.
    .

    Fifth floor
    The sign on that door said:
    .
    “This floor is empty and exists only to prove that women are impossible to please. The exit is to your left.”

    Shame on you! Don’t you know that women are the only ones allowed to make sexist statements these days?

    Because usually you approach them smoking your cigar and after you been ‘swilling’ beer or some other concoction in a bar and you are not at your best personality wise which doesn’t help. Who wants a ‘booze’ guzzling, cigar smoking idiot.

    Great story. Swap genders/attributes, story still works. In fact, the format works for Modern Consumer shopping for The Perfect Widget to Make Me Happy.

    Shoe strikes me as the kind of guy who would derive surreptitious pleasure from knowing his pungent cigar was aromatically annoying to others…
    No, I’d guess that ‘puff of rage’ emanating from his head is more likely just frustrated resignation to the truth in Roz’s razor sharp response…

    This proves it…Shoe is the Archie Bunker of birds.
