Illus: This reminds me of a recently divorced woman that was walking along the beach contemplating how badly treated she had been over the divorced settlement, when she saw a magic lamp wash up on shore. She rubbed the lamp, and out popped a genie!! The genie sensed her anger and allowed her to vent her troubles to him. As a consolation, the genie informed her that he would give her three wishes. But he cautioned her that because he did not believe in divorce, he would give her ex-husband ten times the amount of whatever she wished for. The woman is steaming mad, thinking that this is hardly fair, but she makes her first wish.
· The first wish was for a billion dollars. The genie granted her wish and she found herself sitting on a pile of one billion one-dollar bills. The genie then reminded her that her husband was now the surprised recipient of ten billion dollars.
· The woman could barely contain her anger when she made her second wish. The second wish was for a beautiful mansion on the shore of her own private beach. In an instant it was granted, exactly as she had imagined her dream home, in every tiny detail. But the genie reminded her again that her ex-husband now owned ten of what she had wished for, and pointed out across the bay to a small development of ten such mansions. Upon seeing this, the woman took her time to consider her final wish.
· Just as the genie was about to give up on her, the woman said she had made up her mind. But, before she could say anything, the genie again warned her that her ex-husband would get ten times whatever she wished for. "No problem," said the woman, smiling at last. "For my final wish ... I'd like to give birth to the meanest set of twins that have ever lived on this earth."
