An Australian woman has invested 2,000 on hiring a billboard for a month to find a husband. Helen Zou, 40, decided on the tactic after more traditional methods proved futile, reports the Australian Daily Telegraph. The 'Husband Wanted' ad appeals for professional men aged up to 45 with "a good sense of humour, a solid financial background, and someone who possesses a warm and caring nature".

The billboard, in Randwick, Sydney, states: "Beautiful intelligent Australian Chinese lady seeks to have dream family with a fabulous partner to enjoy a lifetime with". Miss Zou, a civil engineering researcher who has never married, said: "I'm surprised a lot of people think this is special or unusual. "It's Australia. There's a lot of freedom here. If you can put up a sign advertising Coca-Cola or whatever, why not write one about a husband."

Miss Zou has already received several emails from interested would-be husbands.

They did that on the Graham Norton Effect. They took a woman from the audience and put up a personal ad on the big screen in Time Square and they had 3 callers in less than 30 minutes.

This reminds me of the aged, lonely spinster, who decided that it was time to get married, so she put an ad in the local paper that read: "Husband wanted, must be in my age group (80s), must not beat me, must not run around on me and must still be good in bed! All applicants please apply in person."

On the second day she heard the doorbell. Much to her dismay, she opened the door to see a grey haired gentleman sitting in a wheelchair. He had no arms or legs.

The woman said, "You're not really asking me to consider you, are you? Just look at you... you have no legs!" The old man smiled, "Therefore I cannot run around on you!" She snorted. "You don't have arms either!" Again the old man smiled, "Nor can I beat you!".

She raised an eyebrow and gazed intently. "Are you still good in bed?" With that, the old gentleman leaned back, beamed a big broad smile and said, "I rang the doorbell didn't I?"
