three friends got ship wrecked in a remote island in the pacific. one day, as they were looking for food, juan stumbled upon a magic lamp. he wiped the lamp and then a genie came out of the lamp. greatful, the genie offered each one of them three wishes.
Mario: "I'd like to be back home and have a million bucks and a brand new ferrari!"
with just the genie's wave of his hand, Mario disappeared. Pedro was too excited so he made his wish after Mario did.
Pedro: "I definitely would want to go back home too and I'd like a couple of million bucks plus a lamborghini gallardo!"
and with the genie's wave of his hand, Pedro was home with his gallardo and his two million.
then Juan's turn came. he wanted a huge fully-furnished house in the remote island and three million bucks.
the genie snapped his fingers and voila! he is now several steps from his front door and he has a bagful of cash!
on his last wish, he thought, "i've a huge house and lots of cash, but its sad being alone"
so he told the genie, "bring back Mario and Pedro here!"
