Joke 106

8 Jul

An editor, a photographer, and a journalist (not from The News of the World, obviously) are covering a political convention in Miami. They decide to walk up and down the beach during their lunch hour. Halfway up the beach, they stumbled upon a lamp. As they rub the lamp a genie appears and says, “Normally I would grant you three wishes, but since there are three of you, I will grant you each one wish.”

The photographer went first. “I would like to spend the rest of my life living in a huge house in the Bahamas, with no money worries.”  The genie granted his wish and sent him off to the Bahamas.

The journalist went next. “I would like to spend the rest of my life living on a huge yacht cruising the Mediterranean, with no money worries.”   The genie granted his wish and sent him off to the Mediterranean.

Then it was the editor’s turn. “And what would your wish be?” asked the genie.

“I want them both back after lunch,” replied the editor; ”the deadline for tomorrow’s paper is in ten hours.”

    Excellent cartoon.

    BTW: you’ve changed recently….
    when did you go yellow? (And should you get a blood test?)

      I started feeling a little jaundiced yesterday. Pink has never really been my colour but I like the Bueno theme features. I have been trying to change the background colour for months and yesterday I noticed at last (I’m slow but I get there in the end) the great big rectangle with the moveable button on the change background page that allows you to change the colour.

        Aha! So my fear that you’d been yellow for ages and I hadn’t noticed are not true! Do you have a large number of choices at your fingertips, now you have discovered the page you can edit ?

    Moral of the story: When sharing 3 wishes . . . go last! 😀

    BTW: I think I know that editor.

      No discrimination here: I try to make fun of all of my readers’ occupations 🙂

    Pseu: Yes, if I can remember how I did it 🙂


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
