Ostrich Genie
Genie-ous attempt to live forever

A man walks into a bar with an ostrich behind him. The bartender asks for his order, and the man says, “I’ll have a beer,” and turns to the ostrich. “What’s yours?”
“I’ll have a beer, too,” says the ostrich.
The bartender pours the beer and says, “That will be $3.40 please,” and the man reaches into his pocket and pulls out exact change for payment.

The next day, the man and the ostrich come again, and both order a beer. Once again, the man reaches into his pocket and pays with exact change.

This becomes a routine until, late one evening, the two enter again and the bartender asks, “The usual?”
“Well, it’s close to last call, so I’ll have a large scotch,” says the man.
“Same for me,” says the ostrich.
“That will be $7.20,” says the bartender.
Once again, the man pulls exact change out of his pocket and places it on the bar. The bartender can’t hold back his curiosity any longer.
“Excuse me, sir. How do you manage to come up with the exact change out of your pocket every time?”

“Well,” says the man, “several years ago I was cleaning the attic, and I found an old lamp. When I rubbed it, a genie appeared and offered me two wishes.
My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything, I just put my hand in my pocket, and the right amount of money will always be there.”

“That’s brilliant!” says the bartender. “Most people would wish for a million dollars or something, but you’ll always be as rich as you want for as long as you live!”

“That’s right! Whether it’s a gallon of milk or a Rolls Royce, the exact money is always there,” says the man.

The bartender asks, “One other thing, sir. What’s with the ostrich?”

The man replies, “My second wish was for a chick with long legs.”
