One Wish Only
A woman was walking along the beach when she stumbled upon a Genie's lamp.
She picked it up and rubbed it, and lo-and-behold, a Genie appeared. The
amazed woman asked if she would get three wishes.
"Nope... due to inflation, constant down sizing, low wages in third-world
countries, and fierce global competition, I can only grant you one wish. So...
what'll it be?" the Genie replied.
The woman didn't hesitate. Showing him a map, she
said, "I want peace in the Middle East. I want these countries to stop fighting with each other."
The Genie looked at her map and exclaimed, "Gadzooks, lady! These
countries have been at war for thousands of years. I'm good, but not THAT
good! I don't think it can be done. Make another wish."
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
helps with the housecleaning, is good in bed and gets along with my family,
doesn't watch sports all the time, and is faithful. That's what I wish
for... a good mate."
The Genie let out a long sigh. "Let me see that map again!"
