Two Irishmen, Paddy and Ryan, were adrift in a lifeboat following a dramatic escape from a burning freighter.
While rummaging through the lifeboat’s provisions, Paddy came across an old lamp. Secretly hoping that a genie would appear, he rubbed the lamp vigorously and to Paddy’s amazement, a genie came forth.
This particular genie, however, stated that he could only deliver one wish, not the standard three. Without giving much thought to the matter, Paddy blurted out, “Make the entire ocean into Guinness!” The genie clapped his hands with a deafening crash, and immediately the entire sea turned into the finest brew ever sampled by mortals. Simultaneously, the genie vanished.
Only the gentle lapping of Guinness on the hull broke the stillness as the two men considered their circumstances. Ryan looked disgustedly at Paddy whose wish had been granted. After a long, tension-filled moment, he spoke: “Nice going Paddy! Now we’re going to have to pee in the boat.”
