Save one for later

From the California coast...there is this guy who was walking along the beach
in Malibu when he came across this salt-incrusted piece of metal. He worked
for an hour or so to remove the salt. Lo and behold it was a very old oil
lamp. The guy started to buff it to remove the verdigris when "poof" a genie

This genie, like all genies, was so happy to be freed of the lamp that he
granted the guy three wishes.

"I wish to be a dollar richer than Bill Gates, " says the guy.

The genie wasn't sure who Bill Gates was until the guy told him to check
Forbes magazine. When the genie called up Forbes from inside the lamp he
learned that Bill Gates was indeed the richest man in the world.

"Guy," the genie said, "You will forever be a dollar richer than Bill Gates.

wish for later."

"Gee, this is most unusual. But you hold the hammer, I can't escape from this
lamp until you make a third wish. Call me when you're ready," and whoosh the
genie disappears into the lamp.

The guy carefully picks up the now-ever-so- valuable lamp and places it in
the trunk of the fire engine red Porsche. He turns the radio on to balance
the sounds and makes all the other adjustments needed to get his great audio
system customised to his ears.

After that, he pulled off the beach and headed south along the Pacific Coast
Highway. Soon he was up to 60, then 70, then 80. The Porsche handled
perfectly.The guy was so happy that he began to sing along with the familiar
commercial on the radio.
