At some point, we’ve all thought about what we would “wish” for if we could have whatever we desired instantly. A lot of folks wish for stuff like being able to fly, becoming rich, super strength, super speed, world peace, and so on. Now, some cheat and wish for stuff like the power to do anything or unlimited wishes (losers). However, in the end, our wishes might be best left unfulfilled. After all, nothing is ever quite as good as we picture it in our heads, it’s the “wanting” of things that make them attractive, but once we get the object of our desires, they usually don’t measure up. Now, this joke has nothing to do with any of that, but it is funny. Check it out.
A cruise ship sank in the middle of the ocean. Three men managed to get in a lifeboat. They floated around for days without any water or food. One morning a golden lamp floated up to the lifeboat. One man could reach it. He pulled the cork, and a genie appeared.
‘I will grant each of you one wish,’ said the genie.
‘I wish I was home with my family,’ said the first man. Then he was gone in an instant.
‘I wish I was home with my girlfriend,’ wished the second man. He was gone in an instant, too.
The third man looked around, and his face saddened.
‘I am kind of lonely now,’ he said. ‘I wish my two friends were here with me again.’
