A little Guyanese Humor...

A Guyanese woman was walking along the banks of The Georgetown Seawall Bandstand when she stumbled upon an old empty bottle.She picked it up and rubbed it,and lo-and-behold a Genie appeared.She talked with him awhile then the Genie told her he would grant her one wish.She said she heard from a cousin that she would get three wishes if she ever found a Genie.The Genie said,"Nope,sorry three-wish genies are a myth.I'm a one-wish Genie.So....what'll it be?"

The woman didn't hesitate.She said,"I want peace in the Middle East.See this map,I want these countries to stop fighting with each other and I want all the Arabs to love Jews and Americans and vice-versa.It will bring about world peace and harmony."

The Genie looked at the map and exclaimed,"Lawd Lady,Ah wah wrang wid yuh?please be reasonable!These countries have been at war for thousands of years! I'm out of shape after being in a bottle for five hundred years.

I'm good,but not that good!!! I don't think it can be done.Please make another wish and please I beg reasonable."

The woman thought for a moment and said,"Well,I have never been able to find the right Guyanese man...You know,one that is considerate and fun,likes to dance and helps with the cooking and house-cleaning,is great in bed and is faithful.That's what I wish for... a good Guyanese man!"

The Genie let out a big, long sigh,shook his head and said:'Let me see that friggin' map again."
