Two men were adrift in a life boat following a dramatic escape from a
burning freight vessel. While rummaging through the boat's provisions, one
of the men stumbled across an old lamp. Secretly hoping that a Genie would
appear, he rubbed the lamp vigorously. To the amazement of the castaways,
one did come forth.
This particular Genie, however, stated that she could only deliver one
wish, not the standard three. Without giving much thought to the matter
the man blurted out, "Make the entire ocean into beer!"
Immediately the Genie clapped her hands with a deafening crash, and the
entire sea turned into the finest brew ever sampled by mortals.
Simultaneously, the Genie vanished to her freedom. Only the gentle lapping
of beer on the hull broke the stillness as the two men considered their
circumstances. The other man looked in disgust at the one who's wish had
been granted. After a long, tension-filled moment, he spoke: "Nice going!
Now we're going to have to piss in the boat."
Happy new year :-)
