Two Irishmen, Patrick and Michael, were adrift in a boat following a dramatic escape from a burning freighter. While rummaging through the boat’s provisions, Patrick stumbled upon an old lamp. Secretly hoping a genie would appear, he rubbed the lamp vigorously. To Patrick’s amazement, a genie came forth.? This particular genie, however, could grant only one wish, instead of the standard three wishes.? Without giving much thought to the matter, Patrick blurted out, “Make the entire ocean into Guinness beer!”
The genie clapped his hands with a deafening crash, and immediately the entire sea turned into the finest brew ever sampled by mortals. Simultaneously, the genie vanished. Only the gentle lapping of Guinness on the hull broke the stillness as Patrick and Michael considered their circumstances. Abruptly, Michael turned to Patrick, whose wish had been granted.
After a tension-filled moment, he spoke:? “Nice going Patrick, now we are going to have to pee in the boat!”
