Three guys: a Canadian, Osama bin Laden, and Uncle Sam are out
walking together one day. They come across a lantern and a genie
pops out of it.
“I will give each of you each one wish. That’s three wishes
total,” says the genie.
The Canadian says, “I’m a farmer, my dad was a farmer, and my
son will also farm. I want the land to be forever fertile in
With a blink of the genie’s eye, *POOF* the land in Canada was
forever made fertile for farming.
Bin Laden was amazed, so he said, “I want a wall around
Afghanistan, so that no infidels, Jews, or Americans can come
into our precious state.”
Again, with a blink of the genie’s eye, *POOF* there was a huge
wall around Afghanistan.
“Uncle Sam” (A former civil engineer), asks, “I’m very curious.
Please tell me more about this wall.”
The Genie explains, “Well, it’s about 15,000 feet high, 500 feet
thick, and completely surrounds the country; nothing can get in
or out – it’s virtually impenetrable.”
Uncle Sam says, “Fill it with water.”
