An Employee

A government employee sat in his office, and out of boredom, decided to see what was inside his old filing cabinet. He poked through the contents and came across an old brass lamp. "This will look good on my mantel," he said, and took it home with him.

While polishing the lamp, a genie appeared and, as usual, granted him three wishes. "I would like an ice-cold Coke right now." He gets his Coke and drinks it.

Now that he can think more clearly, he states his second wish. "I wish to be on an island with beautiful women, who find me irresistible. " Suddenly, he's on an island with gorgeous women. eyeing him lustfully.

He tells the genie his third and last wish. "I wish I'd never have to work again." Instantly, he was back in his government office.

  1. Ha ha. Hilarious! What I loved the most is that there is a tragedy in this comedy. If you don't know what you are asking for, you won't be able to tell where you will go. Right?

  6. How did you find out about my boss? This happened to him just last week. Hahahaha. This was great, shared it with my admin co-worker. We are both laughing out loud right now!!! In our defense though, we do work, its truly a misnomer that government employees don't work. I just have mastered the theory of work smarter, not harder. So things run more effeciently, thus allowing me more blog reading and facebook time! ;)

  13. Hahahah good one! We have one "just" like it in Norway; we have these jokes about the people in Sweden and Denmark, with the swedes being the most stupid. Ok, here it goes: 3 men were stuck no an island. One from Norway, one from Denmark and one from Sweden. Suddenly, the Norwegian guy found this old brass lamp. Figuring it might be a genie inside it, all three of them rubbed it at the same time. And whattayaknow, a genie appeared. 3 wishes, off course, giving them one wish each; the Norwegian wished he was home at his farm with an ice cold Coke in his hand. Puff, he got it. The Danish guy wished he was home in Copenhagen, riding his brand new bike. Puff, he got what he asked for. Then it was the Swedes turn. He thought about it for a while, and said: "with both of the other two gone I`ll become lonely, so I wish them both back here!". Puff... Hahah...xD

  15. Kat - Found your hubby thought Entrecard. I'm a dog lover and well there's Tanner. I would lurk on his site. So, he had that beautiful header and also the wonderful picture of Tanner. I chose the header. I've made many, many Entrecard avatars. I just enjoy making them. So that's how I met your hubby. He's a nice man. I wish the two of you were together for Christmas. :)

  18. I was a government worker all my working life.
    First in an Elgin National Watch factory makinig proximity fuses for the Navy.
    Then the U.S. Army for five years.
    After that a Ford aeorspace engineer for the Air Force and NASA for 17 years. Finally a college professor for 22 years.

    It was a good life. My favorite line was "spend it before you/we lose it" referring to budget money.
    ..
    I hope no one ever recognizes me in my strip tease act if I'm messed up. That would be soooooo embarassing. I do think this one you found was staged.
