The Genie

A female peace activist was exploring some caves by the beach when she stumbled upon a very old antique looking lamp bottle. The woman picked up the bottle and proceeded to rub some of the sand off of it. Suddenly, out of nowhere, a genie appeared from the bottle!

The genie just stared at the woman, and vice versa, until the shocked woman excitedly spoke:

"Are you a genie?" she asked.

"Yes." came the response.

"Does this mean I get three wishes?"

"Three wishes is only a fable," said the genie in return. "You only get one wish."

"Only one?"

"Yes. So what do you wish for?"

There was no hesitation from the woman who had dedicated her life to the quest for peace.

"I want peace in the Middle East," she said. " I want all the Arabs to love the Jews and vice-versa. I want it to be the start of world peace and harmony."

The genie thought for a moment...

"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'm sorry, but I'm afraid it can't be done. Please make another wish and please be reasonable."

The woman thought for a minute.

"Well, I've never been able to find the right man for my life," she said. "You know, a man that's considerate and fun, likes to cook and help with the house cleaning, loves kids and is great in bed, gets along with my family, doesn't watch sports all the time, cares about the environment, and is faithful. That is what I wish for, Genie... a good man."

The genie thought for a moment, let out a deep sigh and said, "Let me see about that peace in the Middle East."
