    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."
