The Genie In The Lamp

A man was walking along a California beach and stumbled across an old lamp.

He picked it up and rubbed it and out popped a genie.

The genie said: "You have released me from my lamp… This is the eighth time this month and I’m getting a little sick of granting all of these wishes, so you can forget about three. You only get ONE wish. What's it going to be?"

The man sat and thought about it for a while before finally saying, "I’ve always wanted to go to Hawaii, but I’m too scared to fly and I get very seasick on boats. Could you build me a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over there to visit?"

The genie laughed and said, "That’s impossible. Think of the logistics! How would the supports ever reach the bottom of the Pacific? Think of how much concrete and steel that would require! No, think of another wish!" The man said "OK", and tried to think of a really good wish.

Finally, he said, "I’ve been married and divorced four times. My wives always said that I'm too insensitive. So, I wish that I could understand women… know how they feel inside and what they’re thinking when they give me the silent treatment. I'd like to know why they’re crying and what they really want from me when they say "nothing". I want to know how to make them truly happy."

The genie said, "You want that bridge two lanes or four?"
