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 got three wishes.
The Genie said, "Nope... due to inflation, constant
downsizing, low wages in third-world countries, and
fierce global competition, I can only grant you one
wish. So...what'll it be?"
The woman didn't hesitate. She said, "I want peace
in the Middle East. See this map? I want these countries
to stop fighting with each other."
The Genie looked at the 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 and said,
"Let me see that f@ckin' map!"
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
