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 down-sizing, low wages in third world countries, and fierce global competition, I can only grant 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, at least not with my humble powers. 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 who is considerate and fun, likes to cook and helps with the housecleaning, is good in bed an 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 damn map again."
