A woman was walking along the beach when she stumbled upon a Genie's lamp. She picked it up and rubbed it, and lo-and-behold a Genie appeared.

The amazed woman asked if she got three wishes. The Genie said, "Nope...due to inflation, constant downsizing, low wages in third-world countries, and fierce global competition, I can only grant you one wish.

So...what'll it be?" The woman didn't hesitate. She said, "I want peace in the Middle East. See this map? I want these countries to stop fighting with each other."

The Genie looked at the map and exclaimed, "Gadzooks, lady! These countries been at war for over 50 years. I'm good but not THAT good! I don't think it can be done. Make another wish." "The woman thought for a minute and said, "Well, I've never been able to find the right man. You know one that's considerate and fun, likes to cook and helps with the house cleaning is good in bed and gets along with my family, doesn't watch sports all the time and is faithful. That's what I wish for a good mate."

 The Genie let out a long sigh and said, "Let me see that map again."

Talking to God...

       A man was taking it easy, lying on the grass and looking up at the
       clouds. He was identifying shapes when he decided to talk to God.

       "God," he said, "how long is a million years?"

       God answered, "In my frame of reference, it's about a minute."

       The man asked, "God, how much is a million dollars?"

       God answered, "To me, it's a penny."

       The man then asked, "God, can I have a penny?"

       God answered, "Sure! Just a minute."
