A Jamaican woman was walking along the banks of Dunn's River Falls
when she stumbled upon a old empty bottle.
She picked it up and rubbed it, and lo-and-behold a Genie
She talked with him awhile then the Genie told her he would grant
her ONE wish.
She said she heard from a cousin that she would get three wishes
if she ever found a Genie.
The Genie said,"Nope, sorry three-wish genies nuh real,
me is strictly a ONE-WISH Genie.So... what yuh want?"
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
and I want all the Arabs to love Jews and Americans and
vice-versa. It will bring about world peace and harmony. "
The Genie looked at the map and exclaimed,
"Lawd Lady, A wah wrang wid yu? PLEASE BE REASONABLE!
Dem countries yah a war fi how much thousands of years.
Mi shut up inna dis bockle fi 'bout five hundred of dem dey years.
mi good but mi nuh dat good!
Mi nuh know if mi can grant dis one. Do Lady, mek another wish!!
Mi a beg yuh... Be reasonable."
The woman thought for a minute and said, "Well, I've never been
able to find the right Jamaican man... You know, one that is
considerate and fun, likes to dance and helps with the cooking
& house-cleaning, is great in bed FAITHFUL.
That's what I wish for... a good Jamaican man.
The Genie let out a long sigh, shook his head and said,
"Mek mi see di map again!!!!"
