A man is digging for archaeological treasures when a genie suddenly appears. “I want to know who you hate the most”, says the genie. The man says, “That’s got to be my ex-wife. Why?” The genie says, “I am a cursed genie. I will grant you three wishes, but whatever you wish for, your ex-wife will get double the amount.” “OK”, says the man, “I wish for a billion dollars.” The genie says, “Granted, but your ex-wife gets two billion dollars.” “I wish for a mansion with a swimming pool and two tennis courts”, says the man. “Granted, but your ex-wife gets two”, says the genie. After a moment of silence, the genie says, “Now make your final wish.” The man says, “See this shovel? I’d like you to beat me half to death with it.”
