    Three women rub a magic lamp and a genie pops out and says, "You are each granted one wish." So the first woman says, "I'd like to be smarter." To that, the genie goes **POOF** "You're a cardiologist!" The second woman says, "I'd like to be 50% smarter than that!" The genie goes **POOF** "You're a neurosurgeon!" The third woman says, "Well, I'd like to be even 100% smarter than that!" The genie goes **POOF** "You're an RN!"
