A bad golfer was searching for his lost ball in a cave when he came upon an ancient lantern in the dirt. He rubbed it hard, and out came a genie. The genie said, “Today is your lucky day. I will grant you three wishes, but be forewarned – anything that I grant you will be granted to your mother-in-law in double quantity!”
“Cool”, the bad golfer thought as he pondered his three wishes. “First, I would like one set of Callaway Tungsten-titanium irons”, he told the genie.
“Your wish is granted,” said the genie, “and your mother-in-law has just had two sets of irons delivered to her home.”
“Second, I would like one million dollars to travel the world golfing”, said the bad golfer to the genie.
“Your wish is granted,” replied the genie, “One million dollars has been deposited into your bank account, and I have placed 2 million dollars into your mother-in-law’s bank account.”
“All right!” the bad golfer thought, “Now, for my third and final wish, I would like you to scare me half to death!”
