Got this in an email and thought I'd share.
A woman was walking along a deserted beach one day when she saw an old
bottle. She picked it up and while she was rubbing the sand off, smoke
arose from it and 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, 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 the map."
