Two men were adrift in a life boat following a dramatic escape from a burning freight vessel1. While rummaging2 through the boat's provisions, one of the men stumbled across an old lamp. Secretly hoping that a genie3 would appear, he rubbed the lamp vigorously. To the amazement4 of the castaways, a genie came forth5!
This particular genie, however, stated that she could only deliver one wish, not the standard three. Without giving much thought to the matter the man blurted6 out, "Make the entire ocean into beer!"
Immediately the genie clapped her hands with a deafening7 crash, and the entire sea turned into the finest brew8 ever sampled by mortals. Simultaneously9, the genie vanished to her freedom. Only the gentle lapping of beer on the hull10 broke the stillness as the two men considered their circumstances. The other man looked disgustedly at the one whose wish had been granted.
After a long, tension-filled moment, he spoke11:
"Nice going! Now we're going to have to pee in the boat."
