A woman was walking along the beach when she
stumbled upon a bottle. She picked it up and rubbed it, and
'low-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
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 reasonable."
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, is great in bed, and gets along with my family, doesn't watch sports all the time, and is faithful. That is what I wish for ... a good man."
The genie let out a sigh and said, "Let me see that
darn map again."
