One summer afternoon, a guy walking along
the beach finds a bottle. he pulls out the cork
and a genie appears and tells him he has three
"But," the genie says, "I have to warn you,
whatever you receive, your worst enemy will get
twice as much as you."
"OK," says the guy, "first, I want ten million dollars."
The genie grants the wish and reminds him that his
worst enemy now has twenty million dollars.
"Next wish, I want a thirty-room mansion in the
Bahamas." The genie builds the mansion for him
and lets him know his worst enemy now has a
home twice as big.
"Fine. for the last wish," the guy picks up a big
stick and hands it to the genie, "beat me half to death."
