The Third Wish

An old lady is rocking away the last of her days on her front porch, reflecting on her long life, when -- all of a sudden -- a fairy godmother appears in front of her and informs her that she will be granted three wishes.

"Well, now," says the old lady, "I guess I would like to be really rich."

Poof! Her rocking chair turns to solid gold.

"And, gee, I guess I wouldn't mind being a young, beautiful princess."

Poof! She turns into a beautiful young woman.

"And your third wish?" asked the fairy godmother. Just then the old woman's cat wanders across the porch in front of them.

"Ooh -- can you change him into a handsome prince?" she asks.

Poof! There before her stands a young man more handsome than anyone could possibly imagine. She stares at him, completely smitten. With a smile that makes her knees weak, he saunters across the porch, bends down slowly, and whispers in her ear:

"Bet you're sorry you had me neutered."
