A good man, so they say, is hard to find. Apparently, they are even harder to buy when you’re on a budget.

The “You have $__ to build the perfect man” meme is currently spreading like wildfire across Twitter. The idea started as a satire of more earnest posts asking users to create the perfect man by giving them a budget and charging a certain amount for different traits. For instance, you might be given $5 to spend, but it costs you $3 to make your man sexy, $1 to make him smart, $2 to make him rich, and $2 to make him faithful. What a pickle.

People were quick to subvert this trend by making all but a few traits completely outside the budget. Leaving you dating men like Waluigi and Stuart Little.

Some guys even seem like they are trying to not-so-low-key sell themselves.

You can tell the meme has already jumped the shark because big-name brands like Netflix and DC comics are getting on board.

But it was really Comedy Central that came up with the best plan, not to mention the most realistic budget.

Happy shopping everybody.
