Bill Cross met a man who claimed to be a genie in an alley.
"I'll grant you the proverbial three wishes," the genie told Cross.
"For my first wish, I want a world without lawyers," Cross said.
"Done," said the genie. "Now you have no more wishes."
"But you said I had three wishes," Cross said.
The genie smiled and lit a cigarette.
"So sue me."
