[Welcome back: Brad Roter <>...  -psl]

A guy grabs a seat in a bar, looks over and sees a tiny piano on top of the
bar.  He asks the bartender "What's the piano for?" and the bartender says
"Watch." and claps his hands.  A one-foot tall little man jumps up onto the
bar and begins to play the piano....  The visitor is amazed!  When he asks
about him, the bartender says he discovered a genie in a bottle at a web
site on his computer, and using voice recognition, he was granted a wish!

So the guy says, "Hey, is that your computer over there?  Can I try, too?"
The bartender says, "Sure, go ahead."  So the guy goes over to the computer,
surfs to and sure enough, a lamp appears, a genie comes out,
and says in a computer-generated voice "Yes master, what is your wish?"  So
the guy says, "Give me a thousand bucks."  Immediately a thousand grey
mallards come crashing in through the windows, filling the bar with loud
honks and feathers.  The guy says to the bartender, "Hey!  I said I wanted
a thousand bucks..."  The bartender replies, "Do you think I wished for a
12-inch pianist?"
