An explorer goes into an undiscovered tomb for the first time and in the centre of the tomb finds a lamp.
He picks it up and as he starts to rub the dirt off it, a genie comes out of the lamp and says:
“I want to know the person you hate the most.”
The explorer says:
“That’s got to be my ex-wife. Even though she got a huge divorce settlement, she still finds ways of hassling me. Why do you ask?”
“I’m a cursed genie. I will grant you three wishes, but whatever you wish for, your ex-wife will get double”
“Okay, I wish for a billion pounds”
“Granted, but your ex-wife gets two billion pounds.”
“I wish for a huge country estate, complete with stately home, but modernized.”
“Granted, and your ex-wife gets two.”
“Now make your final wish.”
The explorer walks around for a few minutes, returns to the genie with a stick, and says:
“You see this stick? I’d like you to beat me half to death with it.”
