A woman is walking along the beach contemplating how badly she was treated by her recent ex, when she spies a magic lamp washed up onshore. She rubs the lamp, and a genie appears. The genie notices she’s upset and invites her to share her story with him. “As a consolation for your troubles, I will grant you three wishes,” says the genie. “But in the interest of fairness I will give your ex twice the amount of whatever you wish for.”
The woman is steaming mad, thinking that this is hardly fair, but she makes her first wish for a billion dollars. The genie grants her wish and a large stack of bills appears before her. The genie reminds her that her ex is now the recipient of 2 billion dollars.
The woman can barely contain her anger when she makes her second wish. The second wish is for a beautiful mansion on the shore of her own private beach. In an instant it was granted, but the genie again reminds her that her ex now owns two beautiful beach houses.
Upon hearing this, the woman takes her time to contemplate her last wish. After the genie has waited some time for her answer, he reminds her that whatever she wishes for her ex will receive two-fold.
“No problem,” says the woman with a look of triumph. “For my last wish… I want to give birth to twins!”
