Wednesday Open Post and Hawaiian Joke Week
The Road to Hawaii
A man was walking along a California beach and found a bottle. When he polished and opened it a genie appeared and said, "For your kindness I will grant you one wish."
The man looked across the ocean and said, "I have always wanted to go to Hawaii but I'm afraid of flying and sailing. So I wish for a road to be built from here to Hawaii."
The genie considered this and said, "No, I don't think I can do that. Just think of all the work involved with the pilings needed to hold up the highway and how deep they would have to be to reach the bottom of the ocean. Think of all the pavement that would be needed. No, that is just too much to ask."
The man thought for a minute and then told the genie, "There is one other thing that I have always wanted. I would like to be able to understand women. What makes them laugh and cry, why are they temperamental, why are they so difficult to get along with? Basically, what makes them tick?"
The genie paused for a few moments and said, "So, do you want two lanes or four?"
