“The key to happiness is to find a woman who can cook, clean and is great in bed” (joke)

A joke is told about happiness:

“The key to happiness is to find a woman who can cook, clean and is great in bed—and it’s important that these three women never meet.”

The joke—told about both a man and a woman—has been cited in print since at least 2002.
