The little man walked into a pub carrying a large brown grocery bag. Strolling up to the bar, he sets the bag down and orders a beer. The bartender fills the order and nods at the bag. “What do you have there?”

Silently, the little man reaches into the bag and pulls out a tiny piano, followed by a bench, and, incredibly, a small man, who proceeds to sit down and star playing the most beautiful music.

Fascinated, the bartender watches for a bit, then asks, “Where did you find something like that?”

Once more reaching into his bag, the little man pulls out a dirty brass lantern and speaks for the first time. ” I was walking down the beach when I saw this lantern sticking out of the sand. I pulled it out and rubbed it to get some of the filth off. All of a sudden, a genie pops out and says I’ll be granting one wish for freeing him.”

Thinking a bit, the bartender says, “May I try it?”

“Help yourself.”

Eagerly grabbing the old lantern, the man starts vigorously rubbing on it until, exactly as told, a large genie pops out. “For freeing me from the lantern, I’ll grant you one wish!”

Without hesitating, he stated, “I want a million bucks!”

“Done!” roared the genie, snapping his fingers.

Suddenly, all around the pup, a clamor arose. Ducks were appearing all over the bar from nothing,quacking and raising all sorts of yelling form other customers.

Horrified, the bartender asked, “What’s the matter with him? Is he hard of hearing or something?”

The little man shrugged, sipping his beer. “You don’t really think I asked for a twelve inch pianist, do you?”
