East of Broken Bow
A guy finds a magic lamp, and a genie pops out. He says that there are new rules, they only can grant one wish, so use it wisely.
The guy says he always wanted to go to Hawaii, but was afraid to fly, and didn't like boats, so could he have a bridge built all the way to Hawaii? The genie said that what he was asking was going to be a horrible amount of work for him, not just materials, but figuring out how to do it without disrupting shipping lanes, or causing other problems somewhere else. Plus making it stormproof, etc, etc. He told the guy it would all but exhaust all the magic he had, and pleaded with the guy to come up with something else.
The guy thought a while, then said he wished for a way to make his wife happy, and keep her that way.
The genie shrugs, sighs, and says, "About that bridge, is 6 lanes enough, or does it have to be 8?
