Mick and Paddy were fishing on the river Moy when Mick takes out a cigar, finding he had no matches, he asked Paddy for a light, Hold on a minuet says Paddy and then reaching into his tackle box, pulls out a Bic lighter 12 inches long.
Good God man! exclaimed Mick, taking the huge Bic lighter ‘Where did ya get that monster of a thing?’
‘I got it from a Genie’ who lives in my tackle box’ says Paddy….
‘Could I see him?’
Paddy opens his tackle box and sure enough, out pops the Genie.
Mick says, ‘Hello I’m a good pal of your master here, would you grant me one wish?’
‘Yes, I will,’ says the Genie.
So Mick asks the Genie for a million bucks.
The Genie disappears back into the tackle box leaving Mick sitting there waiting for his million bucks.
Shortly, the Irish sky darkens and is filled with the sound of a million ducks flying directly overhead…..
Over the roar of the one million ducks Mick yells at Paddy, ‘What the hell? I asked for a million bucks, not a million ducks!’
Paddy says ‘I forgot to tell ya the dam Genie is hard of hearing…..Do ya really think I asked for a 12 inch Bic?’
