A Benny Shaved
About thirty years ago, a man by the name of Benny found an old oil lantern at Wasaga Beach. He took it home and started cleaning it. Suddenly, a genie appeared. He told Benny that he would grant him three wishes as long as he granted him one. "What would that be? Benny asked." "Don't shave for the rest of your life" replied the genie.
"What would happen if I did that?" inquired Benny. "I'd turn you into an urn", retorted the genie.
Benny agreed to the conditions and made his three wishes. With a good job leading to a government pension, he married and had ten children. As time went on, Benny's beard grew longer and longer until it reached the ground. His wife told him to shave it off or she'd leave him. Benny asserted that the genie would make him into a turn if he did that(Benny's memory wasn't that great.). Benny wife fired back "The genie hasn't been around for thirty years. He's not interested in you anymore."
Benny loved his wife and didn't want her to leave. He ran quickly to the bathroom and shaved off his beard.
The genie appeared and turned Benny into an urn. The morale of this story:
"A Benny shaved is a Benny urned."
