That's great, lol. I love it.
That's excellent!!! Now I'll share a joke...

God said to Adam, "Adam, I want to give a wonderful companion. Someone who will listen to you, and keep you company. I will make her beautiful and she will give you joy. She will give your beautiful children and won't complain. She will be yours for as long as you live!"

Adam was shocked and said, "Ok God, that sounds really good, but what's this going to cost me?"

God said, "An arm and a leg."

Adam replied, "What can I get for a rib?"

The rest fellows, is history...

I know most of my friends go by this one "Find a prostitute and marry her.
-- Hosea (Hosea 1:1-3) "  then agian when you find your wife at a bar ...
LOL! I suppose this list is of Protestant origin, otherwise they would have added:

Find a woman who despairs of having a husband survive the wedding night. On your wedding night burn some fish liver as an exorcism, and spend the first three nights in prayer only. Then you're safe.

Tobit chapters 6-8.

Ok, one more joke in this arena:

Adam asks God, "Wow, this woman you gave me is wonderful! She is beautiful, friendly, and we get along just great. I just have one question."

God says, "Ok what is it?"

Adam asks, "Why did you make her so dumb?"

God replies, "So that she could love you too."

That joke makes women laugh as well.
