Wet Wish

Plans for traveling to Wisconsin?


Three guys, an Iowan, a Wisconsinite and a Minnesotan are out walking along the beach together one day. They come across a lantern and a genie pops out of it.

“I will give you each one wish,” says the genie.

The Iowan says, “I am a farmer, my dad was a farmer, and my son will also farm. I want the land to be forever fertile in Iowa.” With a blink of the genie’s eye, “POOF” - the land in Iowa was forever made fertile for farming.

The Wisconsinite was amazed, so he said, “I want a wall around Wisconsin, so that no one can come into our precious state. Again, with a blink of the Genie’s eye, “POOF” - there was a huge wall around Wisconsin.

The Minnesotan asks, “I’m very curious. Please tell me more about this wall.”
The Genie explains, “Well, it’s about 150 feet high, 50 feet thick and nothing can get in or out.”

The Minnesotan says, “Fill it up with water.”
