Funny Joke from the Forum
A Genie Joke

A State Government Employee sits in his office and out of boredom, decides to see what's in his old filing cabinet. He pokes through the contents and comes across an old brass lamp. "This would look nice on my mantelpiece," he thinks, so he takes it home with him. While polishing the lamp, a genie appears and grants him three wishes. "I wish for an ice cold diet Pepsi right now!"

POOF! A Pepsi appears before him on his desk, so he picks it up and guzzles it all at once. Now that he can think more clearly, he states his second wish. "I wish to be on an island where no one but beautiful & lonely women reside."

POOF! Suddenly he is on an island with gorgeous females fighting over him. He then tells the genie his third and last wish.

"I wish I'd never have to work ever again." POOF! He's back in his government office.

A Question That Completely Ruined the Moment

One day my wife was out shopping and I was watching our children ages five and two. My son was playing with the dog. My daughter, the two year old, was playing with her Barbie.

She and Barbie were having a little coffee get-together. I thought it was very nice of her to offer me a cup of coffee, and happily accepted even though it was just water.

After several cups and lots of praise for such delicious coffee, my wife came rolling in with the groceries. She watched as my daughter brought in other cup of coffee, started laughing, and asked me how many cups I'd drank.

When I admitted that I was waterlogged from all the coffee, my wife broke into hysterical laughter. Through the tears of laughter rolling down her cheeks she asked me a question that completely ruined that precious moment forever.

'

Did it ever occur to you', she said, 'that the only place a baby can reach water is the toilet?'
