No matter which girls he brought home, the young man found disapproval from his mother. A friend gave him advice. "Find a girl just like your mother --  then, she's bound to like her." So the young man searched and searched, and finally found the girl. He told his friendly adviser:

"Just like you said, I found a girl who looked, talked, dressed, and even cooked like my mother; and just as you said, my mother liked her".

"So," asked the friend, "what happened?"

"Nothing," said the young man.  "My father hates her."
