George Bush was jogging along the beach when he came upon a Genie's lamp. He picked it up and rubbed it around, and lo-and-behold a Genie appeared! George was amazed and startled, and asked the genie if he got three wishes? "No," said the genie "I'm afraid that due to constant down sizing, world stock market volatility, fierce global competition, deflation and low wages in Asian countries, I can only grant you but one wish sir. So please, what will it be?"
George didn't hesitate. He said, "There is something near and dear to my heart; I would like to see peace in the Middle East. Here, see this map? I want all these countries to stop fighting and make peace among them."
The Genie looked at the map and exclaimed, "Gadzooks, man! These countries have been at war for thousands of years. The hatred among them runs deep. Many have tried and failed at what you ask. I'm good but not THAT good. I just don't think it can be done. Please, could you make another wish?"
George thought for a minute, and then said, "Well you know, people just don't like my wife Barbara. They think she's bad tempered, has a big butt, and pushes me around too much. I wish for her to be the most beautiful woman in the world and have everybody really like her. OK, that's what I want."
The Genie let out a long sigh and said, "George, let me see that map again!"
