genieA guy is walking along a Florida beach when he comes across a lamp partially buried in the sand.

He picks up the lamp and gives it a rub.

A genie appears and tells him he has been granted one wish.

The guy thinks for a few moments and says, “I want to live forever.”

“Sorry,” said the genie, “I’m not allowed to grant eternal life.”

“OK,” says the guy, “Then, I want to die after the Democrats balance the budget and eliminate the debt.”

“You crafty little bastard,” said the genie.

    A little levity at a time like this is like Chicken soup for the soul! Thanks for the pun, Z!

    Great story, Z.

    I hate to be the one with the negative opinion. Living forever may not be a good thing. We see eternal life as a gift of God which we don’t deserve. Our assumptions about a heavenly eternal life is that we will not live it in our earthly bodies which start falling apart some time after fifty year life span.

    We would not be able to live without a constant stream of replacement organs. Our eternal life on earth would be like a 1948 Hudson Hornet in Havana, Cuba. In 2016 it still resembles a Hudson, but most of the internal parts have been replaced several times.

    We view eternal life as given by God as without pain, sickness, problems, or even a corporeal existence. We view ourselves in heaven as spirits, not bodies.

    Baysider…I so appreciate your input, and this is FUNNY and so clever.

    Glad you all liked it!

    Bob, its our SPIRIT that is destined to live, not our physical bodies. The spirit is not organic, ergo won’t deteriorate. Remember, Jesus BECAME incarnate, etc. He wasn’t in a body prior to that.
    My thinking is a spirit probably can travel instantaneously from one place to another without concern to distance of, say, a million light years. That’s my thinking, anyway.


  9. Kid says:

    Mal, I agree. What better way to spend eternity?


  10. Kid says:

    Mal, PS, and not only in space, but time as well.

    3 Guys are stuck on a desert island for 10 years.

    One is an American, one is an Italian and the other a Polish fellow.
    The American comes across a bottle that’s been washed up on the beach and says “What the heck, I’ll give it a rub”.
    Sure enough out pops a thousand year old genie. Who says “Thanks for helping me out of the bottle I’ve been stuck in for 1000 years”.
    I’ll grant you all one wish and one wish alone.
    The American says..”Ahh man…. to be back home and on the ranch again… and with mom’s apple pies and my horses”…Poof he’s gone.
    The Italian says..”Amore, amore to be back in Roma with the women I love”…Poof he’s gone.
    The Polish fellow…looks around and says…”Gee….I miss those guys, I wish they were here”.

    Be careful what ya wish for.

    OMG, I repeated your headline. Oops.


  14. Mal says:

    Imp, I’ve always wondered why their one wish wasn’t a thousand more wishes!


  15. Imp says:

    Mal…good question. That would be mine too!
