The Jamaican Man and the Genie

Thanks Marie!

A Jamaican man was walking along the banks of a river when he stumbled upon an old empty bottle. He picked it up and rubbed it, and lo-and- behold a Genie appeared.

He talked with him awhile then the Genie told him he would grant him ONE wish.

He said he heard from a cousin that he would get three wishes if he ever found a Genie.

The Genie said, 'Nope, sorry three-wish genies not real, they always fool you , I am strictly a ONE-WISH Genie. So... what is your wish?'

The man didn't hesitate.

He 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 sah, What is wrong with you? PLEASE BE REASONABLE! These countries have been at war for thousands of years. I have been shut in this bottle for only about five hundred of those years!..... I am good, but not that good. I don't think I can grant that one... Please sir, make another wish!!.... I am begging you... Be reasonable please.'

The man thought for a minute and said, 'Well, I've never been able to find the right Jamaican woman... you know, one that is considerate and fun, don't like to argue and always listen to her man, do a lot of house work, and great in bed and is FAITHFUL and don't love money. That's what I wish for...a good Jamaican woman.

The Genie let out a long sigh, shook his head and said, 'Let me see the MAP again!

I think this is as very good joke but instead of 'woman' it should read 'man'. As we women know only too well most men, Jamaican or otherwise find it difficult to be faithful.
