>An Arab has spent many days crossing the desert without finding a source
> of water. It gets so bad that his camel dies of thirst. He's crawling
> through the sands, certain that he has breathed his last, when all of a
> sudden he sees a shiny object sticking out of the sand several yards
> ahead of him. He crawls to the object, pulls it out of the sand, and
> discovers that he has a Manischevitz wine bottle. It appears that there
> may be a drop or two left in the bottle, so he unscrews the top and out
> pops
> a genie. But
> this is no ordinary genie. This genie appears to be a Hassidic rabbi,
> complete with black alpaca coat, black hat, side curls, etc.
> "Well, kid," says the genie. "You know how it works. You have three
> wishes."
> "I'm not going to trust you," says the Arab. "I'm not going to trust a
> Jewish genie!"
> "What do you have to lose? It looks like you're a goner anyway!"
> The Arab thinks about this for a minute, and decides that the genie is
> right.
> "OK, I wish I were in a lush oasis with plentiful food and drink."
> ***POOF***
> The Arab finds himself in the most beautiful oasis he has ever seen.
> And he is surrounded with jugs of wine and platters of delicacies.
> "OK, kid, what's your second wish."
> "My second wish is that I were rich beyond my wildest dreams."
> ***POOF***
> The Arab finds himself surrounded by treasure chests filled with rare gold
> coins and precious gems.
> "OK, kid, you have just one more wish. Better make it a good one!" After
> thinking for a few minutes, the Arab says: "I wish I were white and
> surrounded by beautiful women."
> ***POOF***
> The Arab is turned into a Tampax.
> The moral of the story is: Be careful of what you wish for. There may be a
> string attached.
