Three men – an editor, a photographer and a journalist – are covering a political convention in Miami. While walking along the beach during lunch, they stumble 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 goes first. “I would like to spend the rest of my life living in a huge house in St. Thomas with no money worries.” The genie grants his wish and sends him off to St. Thomas.
The journalist goes 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 grants his wish and sends him off to the Mediterranean.
Finally, it is the editor’s turn.
“And what would your wish be?” asks the genie.
“I want them both back after lunch,” the editor says, “the deadline for tomorrow’s newspaper is in about 10 hours.”
