Adam and Eve

I heard a somewhat feeble joke today from one of my
daughters who attended a wedding last weekend (she
plays the traditional harp at such events). It was
the vicar who told this joke to everyone present in
the church, so it must be kosher.

Just after God had created Adam, God tempted him with
a lovely vision of what his future partner Eve could
be like: "She could be divinely beautiful, and be a
brilliant companion with a fine intellect and a GSOH.
She could be totally submissive and attentive to your
every need, and look after you superbly well if you
became ill and when you become frail in old age".
"Oh, gosh! She sounds wonderful," said Adam, "but what
would she cost?"
"Ermm," said God, pausing to think for a few moments,
"Well, she would cost you an arm and a leg".
"Oh dear," said Adam feeling disappointed, "I can only
spare you a rib."

There was a slight titter from some members of the
congregation.

GSOH?...unfamiliar acronym. At least to me.

Angel: yes, there's a good joke here about what men are looking for in terms of an ideal female partner.
TJ: ... and a good sense of humour is one of them, an abbreviation used a lot over here in the Lonely Hearts columns.
