Wives can be male

- That's pretty sexist, you know.

- To want a wife?

- Yeah. And not a husband.

- Not at all.

- But you've assigned the menial tasks to a woman, and ruled out men.

- Meaning. . .

- Men are free to apply.

- What's the pay?

- Room and board, and the family's undying gratitude.

- Hey. That's less than minimum wage!

- Well, that is the job description.
