Three men stranded on an island. They were walking across the sand when they came across a magic lamp; they rubbed the lamp and out came a genie. The genie said "you have three wishes but make it quick." So they thought about what they were going to wish for. The one man said, "I wish I was at home with my family." so the genie said your wish is my command, and he was gone, then the second man said "I wish I was in the pub with my mates." So he was gone. The last man said, "I am lonely and I want my friends back."

A man found a brass lamp, rubbed it vigorously, and a genie appeared.
"For freeing me from the lamp, I will grant you any wish you desire," the genie said.
The man replied, "I want a spectacular job. A challenge that no man has ever succeeded at or has ever even dared try."
"Poof!" Said the genie. "You're a housewife."

One morning a wife told her husband that she had a dream of an angel telling her to wish anything three times will be granted to her on the spot. The husband laughed at her and said, "Don't be silly dear, nothing like that ever happened" The wife tried to insist that it was not an ordinary dream, it was just like a really angel speaking to her. "OK" said the husband "lets try this one. Lets have our house full of balls" Unbelievable, the room was full of balls hanging from everywhere, from the roof, the walls and on the floor. "My God" said the husband "I'm very sorry my dear, I shouldn't have ignored you on the first place. But you know, we have left with two more wishes” he continued, "But first lets get rid of these balls from the house" Then they started picking the balls but whenever they pick one the other comes over. They continued for hours and hours without any success until they all became exhausted. "Listen my dear" said the husband "Since we are left with two wishes, lets use one to clear the balls from the house and we will use the remaining one very wisely" "It is all right, since we have no other choice" replied the angry wife. "Let all the balls disappear from our house" wished the man. "Oh Lord!!" cried the man, "look here my wife, my balls have also gone" The wife looked at him and said "Don't worry dear, we still have one wish left, just wish for your balls to come back!"

Once there was this young who discovered a treasure trove. Amongst the old and valuable things he noticed a worn out lamp. He rubbed the lamp and out came the genie. "Yes master, express your wish", the genie howled. The man said, "Genie get me a grand villa where I can live happily ever after with my girlfriend". The genie looked at the man and said, "Well, if I could make a villa like that, then why the hell do you suppose I live in this stuffy worn out lamp?"
