At the risk of some boo's and hisses, this is one of my favorites...
A man was walking along the beach when he found a peculiar gold lamp. Excitedly he begins to shine the lamp using his shirt and POOF!! Out comes a genie!
The man screams, "HEY I KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS! YOU'RE A GENIE AND YOU HAVE TO GIVE ME THREE WISHES!!!"
The genie says, "Hold on there, I didn't ask you to rub that lamp. One wish, that's it. And make it snappy!"
The man thinks and thinks and thinks, and finally says, "I've always wanted to go to Hawaii but I'm afraid to fly or get onto a boat. I wish for a road between California and Hawaii."
The genie, now visibly upset says, "Do you know what is involved with building a road? I can't just "poof" it into place! Traffic studies, concrete and asphalt orders, supports (and in the water, nonetheless). Nope. Too complicated. Pick something else."
The man thinks once again, and finally makes his request: "I wish that I could tell what my wife really wants from me."
The genie replied, "Would you like a 2-lane highway or a 4-lane highway?"

Pierogies, Potato pancakes, halushki, halupki -- typical firefighter bazaar food. Generally if it's deep-fried or smothered in butter and salt, it makes the list. Granted, you can't overeat this kind of food, but when I visit home in the summertime, nothing beats this kind of treat!
If your aren't familiar with bazaars, they are events similar to a community carnival, and are generally held by churches, fire companies, etc. I'm originally from Northeastern Pennsylvania where firefighter's bazaars are a way of life!
