After a ship sank in the ocean, three men ended up stranded in a lifeboat. They floated around for days without food or water. One afternoon a bottle floated up to the boat. The men grabbed the bottle and when they pulled the cork out of the bottle, a genie appeared.
"I'll grant each of you a single wish," said the genie.
"I wish I was home," said the first man. Then, poof! He disappeared.
"I wish I was home, too," said the second man. Poof! He disappeared.
The third man looked around. "Gee, I'm kind of lonely," he said. "I wish my friends were here with me."
