A recently divorced woman is walking along the beach contemplating how 
badly treated she got over the divorce settlement, when she spies a 
magic lamp washing up onshore. She rubs the lamp, and out pops a magical 

The genie notices her anger and lets her vent her troubles to him. As a
consolation, the genie informs her that he will give her three wishes. 
But, he cautions her that because he does not believe in divorce, he 
will give her ex-husband ten times the amount of whatever she wishes.

The woman is steaming mad, thinking that this is hardly fair, but she 
makes her first wish. The first wish was for a billion dollars. The 
genie grants her wish and she finds herself sitting in pile of one 
billion one-dollar bills. The genie then reminds her that her husband is 
now the recipient of 10 billion dollars.

The woman can barely contain her anger when she makes her second wish. 
The second wish was for a beautiful mansion on the shore of her own 
private beach. In an instant it was granted, but the genie then reminds 
again that her ex-husband now owns ten of what she wished for, and 
points out at the beach to a small development of ten such mansions.

Upon hearing this, the woman takes her time to contemplate her last 
wish. Just as the genie was about to give up on her, the woman informs 
the genie that she wants to make the last wish. But, before she can do 
this, the genie again warns her that her ex-husband will get ten times 
what she wishes for.

"No problem," said the woman as she grinned in ecstasy. "For my last
wish...I'd like to give birth to twins."
