Humor: A Wish

>> A man was walking along the beach and found a bottle.  He
>> looked around and didn't see anyone so he opened the
>> bottle.  A genie appeared and thanked the man for letting him out.
>> The genie said, "I am so grateful to get out of that bottle that I 
>will grant you one wish.  I can only grant one."
>> The man thought for a while and finally said, "I have always wanted 
>to go to Hawaii.  I've never been able to go because I cannot fly. 
>Airplanes are much too frightening for me.  On a boat, I see all that
>and I become very claustrophobic.  So I wish for a road to be  built
>here to Hawaii.
>> The genie thought for a few minutes and finally said, "No, I don't
>> think I can do that.  Just think of all the work involved.  Consider
>> all the piling needed to hold up a highway and how deep they would
>> have to go to reach the bottom of  the ocean. Imagine all the 
>pavement needed. No, that is just too much to ask."
>> The man thought for a few minutes and then told the genie, "There is 
>one other thing I have always wanted.  I would like to be able to 
>understand women.  What makes them laugh and cry,  why are they
>> why are they so difficult to get along with.   Basically, what makes 
>them tick."
>> The genie considered for a few minutes and said, "So, do you want 
>two lanes or four?"
