Have fun passing this message along to family and friends because we all love free knowledge and we adore quotes! Now, here's this week's corny joke for your enjoyment:

Shopping for a Husband

A store selling new husbands just opened where you can go to choose a husband from among many men. The store has six floors and the men increase in positive attributes as the shopper ascends the flights.

But there is 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 leave the building. And so one day 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?"

The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 - These men have jobs, love kids, and are extremely handsome.

"Much better," she comments, "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 romantic streak.

"Wow!" she exclaims with delight. "But I wonder 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 26,875,953,012 to this floor.
There are no men on this floor.
This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please.
Have a nice day.

And YOU have a great week! Thanks for subscribing to our Quotations Newsletter!
