A Provincial Health
Ministry Official sits in his office twiddling his thumbs. After he gets tired
of doing that, he decides to see what’s in his old filing cabinet. He pokes
through the contents and comes across an old brass lamp. “This will look
nice on my mantelpiece,” he decides, and takes it home with him. While
polishing the lamp, a genie appears and grants him three wishes. “I wish
for an ice cold Molson right now!” He gets his drink and sips it. Now that
he can think more clearly, he states his second wish. “I wish to be on a
