Doubling down on investment bankers

Subscribe to our Newsletters

From Stephanie Allard of Loveland, Colo. . . .

A man opened a bottle on the beach and a genie popped out. “I’ll grant you three wishes,” the genie said. “But I must warn you, everything you receive will be doubled for every investment banker in the world.”

“I don’t care,” the man said, “give me a red Ferrari.” Poof! A red Ferrari appeared. “Now,” the genie said, “every investment banker in the world has two red Ferraris.”

“I don’t care,” the man said, “give me $1 million.” Poof, $1 million was in a heap at his feet. The genie said, “Now every investment banker in the world has $2 million.”

“I don’t care,” the man replied. But then he thought a bit and said, “I’ve always wanted to donate one kidney.”
