Robin’s 2¢:
There were two guys fishing in a boat—and they haven’t caught anything all day. Suddenly, the one pulls up a old lamp and wipes if off. Out comes a genie.
“I will give you one wish, what will it be?” asks the genie.
So the guy says turn the whole lake into beer.
“Poof” the lake is beer.
The guy turns to the other and says, “So, what do you think of that?”
His buddy replies, “I think you’re a stupid idiot. Now we have to pee in the boat.”
