A Million Bucks
Olaf & Sven were fishing one day when Sven pulled out a cigar. Finding he had no matches, he asked Olaf for a light.
"Ya, shure, I tink I haff a lighter," he replied. Then reaching into his tackle box, he pulled out a Bic lighter 10 inches long.
"Yumping yimminy Cricket!" exclaimed Sven, taking the huge Bic lighter in his hands. "Vere dit yew git dat monster??"
"Vell," replied Olaf, "I got it from my Genie."
"You haff a Genie??" Sven asked.
"Ya, shure. It's right here in my tackle box," says Olaf.
"Could I see him?"
Olaf opens his tackle box & sure enough, out pops the Genie. Addressing the genie, Sven says, "Hey dere! I'm a good
friend of your master. Vill you grant me vun vish?"
"Yes, I will," says the Genie.
So Sven asks the Genie for a million bucks. The Genie disappears back into the tackle box leaving Sven sitting there, waiting for his million bucks.
Shortly thereafter, the sky darkens & is filled with the sound of a million ducks...flying overhead. Over the roar of the million ducks Sven yells at Olaf, "Yumpin' Yimminy!! I asked for a million bucks, not a million ducks!"
Olaf answers, "Ya, I forgot to tell yew dat da Genie is hart of hearing. Do yew really
tink I asked for a 10-inch Bic?"
Be who you are & say what you will,
Those that matter won't mind and those that mind don't matter.
