The cost of a good woman
God called Adam aside one day and said “I’ve been pondering the best way to expand on the species of man, I think procreation is the way to go so before creating a mate for you I thought I’d give you some options.
How would you like a mate who would always do as she was asked to with loving good grace, prepare delicious meals for you, keep your home in immaculate condition, bear you sons and daughters and bring them up as offspring that you would be proud of, and at the same time be always willing to satisfy your male needs”.
“Wow God” said Adam “that sounds really great, how much would a mate like that cost?”
“Well” said God, “that’s one thing about her, she would be expensive, probably an arm and a leg”.
“Gee God” said Adam, “what could I get for a rib?”
