A guy is driving his brand new Ferrari down the streets and as he stops at a trafic light he recognizes an old friend from high shcool driving a barely functioning Fiero. The guy can't resist making fun of his old classmate and his apparent bad luck with money
* - Hey Mitch, it's been a long time ! How are you doing ?
*- Oh it's fine, I guess... hmm it's Ferrari's last model you have there, right?
*- Yeah, he says smiling. You like it ?
*- Of course I do. I like it so much, I'd like to trade
it for my car."
The guy in the Ferrari burst out laughing. Why would he trade
his Ferrari for a beaten up car ? But the old classmate has more than just a car: "Let's go park somewhere down the street, I'll show you something".
As they stop and go out of their cars, Mitch pulls out an old lamp from the Fiero. "Check this out" he says. He scrubs the lamp for a second, and a genie comes out. "Hey genie, could you give us two cold beers please ?" And poof! The two old friends get their beers.
Amazed by this, the guy is ok to trade his Ferrari for the Fiero and the lamp.
The guy is so proud of himself, he honks several times when he reaches home, causing his wife to get out of the house.
"What the hell is this shitty car ? Where is your Ferrari ?" asks the wife.
"Forget about the Ferrari, I have something even greater!"
He pulls out the lamp, scrubs it, the genie appears. The man then asks the genie to give his wife flowers, and the same Ferrari, but in a different color.
To which the genie answers "Sorry sir, I can only grant you cold beers."
