Subject: WISH A man was sitting in the bar when he noticed another patron a few stools away. The guy had a body like Charles Atlas, but his head was the size of a thimble. The first man said "please excuse me for staring, but I can't help but be curious as to why your body is so well developed, but your head is so small?" The man said "buy me a drink and I"ll tell you." The drink was ordered and the story began. "I was in the Navy and my ship was sunk by a torpedo. I was the only survivor and I managed to make it to a deserted island a few miles away. I had been there for several months and was sitting on the beach one day waiting for a bird or fish to come by so I would have something to eat; looking up I saw a beautiful mermaid sunning on a nearby rock. She swam over to me and informed me that she was a magical mermaid and could grant me three wishes. Great, I said. I'd like to be rescued. She slapped the water with her tail and a ship appeared, sailing straight for my island. Next I asked for a body like Charles Atlas. Another slap of the tail and here it is. Then, noticing how beautiful she was and all my other wishes fulfilled I asked if I could make love to her. She said no, it just wouldn't work, her being half fish and all, so I said well, how about a little head then?
