ex-wife gets double
Submitted by: RockyB
One day a man was walking along the beach and found an old bottle washed up on the shore. He picked it up and opened it, and a genie popped out and said "Thanks! You know the drill... you've got three wishes. The only catch is, whatever you ask for, your ex-wife will get double."
The guy thought about this for a minute and said, "OK, fair enough. For my first wish I'd like a million dollars." Poof! A million for him, two million for the ex-wife.
"OK, how about your next wish?" asked the genie. "Well, I think I'd like a mansion by the sea." Once again, everything went as expected - he got his mansion, and the ex-wife got two.
"What would you like for your last wish?" asked the genie.
"My last wish is that I'd like you to scare me half to death!"
