:-) A One-Wish Genie
A woman was walking along the beach when she stumbled upon a bottle. She
picked it up and rubbed it, and lo-and-behold 'a genie' appeared! The
amazed woman asked if she got three wishes.
The genie said, "Nope, sorry, three-wish genies are a storybook myth.
I'm a one-wish genie. So... what'll it be?"
The woman did not hesitate. She said, "I want peace in the Middle East.
See this map? I want these countries to stop fighting with each other
and I want all the Arabs to love the Jews and Americans and vice-versa.
It will bring about world peace and harmony."
The genie looked at the map and exclaimed, "Lady, be reasonable. These
countries have been at war for thousands of years. I'm out of shape
after being in a bottle for five hundred years. I'm good but not THAT
good! I don't think it can be done. Make another wish and please be
The woman thought for a minute and said, "Well, I've never been able to
find the right man. You know, one that's considerate and fun, likes to
cook and help with the house cleaning, gets along with my family,
doesn't watch sports all the time and is faithful. That's what I wish
for... a good man."
The genie let out a sigh and said, "Let me see that map again..."
