Be Careful What You Wish For
Morris Sapperstein always considered himself one of the unluckiest men around. That’s why he was blown away when one day, he stumbled upon a genie – a real live genie. The genie offered Morris one wish.
"Well," said Morris, "I've always wanted to go to Fiji, but plane tickets are so expensive, and boats are so slow. Can you build a bridge from Los Angeles to Fiji?"
"I'm sorry, Morris," the genie said. "You're pretty much asking for the impossible. That's six thousand miles of bridge. Plus, you'll need fuel stations and motels on the way. I'm sorry, but you're going to have to ask for something else."
"Oh," said Morris, disappointed. "Well, can you grant me the ability to understand women?"
The genie cleared his throat. "How many lanes did you want on that bridge?"
