A man wearing a trenchcoat enters a bar. He goes to the counter and orders a drink. While the bartender is preparing the drink, the man pulls a small baby grand piano and sets it on the counter. Then he reaches into another pocket and pulls out a tiny man, about a foot tall, who proceeds to play a lovely concerto.

The bartender is rather amused and bewildered by the scene. But, the music is nice and it doesn't seem to be bothering any of the other patrons, so he moves along to serving his other customers. As the night continues, the man orders a couple more drinks and nurses them over the course of a few hours. The tiny man continues to play a variety of music, including a few requests made by other customers.

As closing time came around, the man finished his last drink, put on his coat and proceeded to put the tiny man and the little piano back in his pockets. The bartender, who had restrained his curiosity all evening, walked over to the man and said, "Hey, I know its none of my business, but what's with the midgit and the piano?"

"Oh, nothing much...I just found a genie bottle and made a wish," the man replied.

"Nothing much!" the bartender exclaimed. "That's incredible! Man, I think it would be freakin' awesome to find a genie and have it grant my wish."

The man paused a second, then reached into another pocket of his coat and pulled out an old looking bottle. "Be my guest," the man said as he handed the bottle to the bartender.

The bartender gladly accepted the bottle, popped the cork, and out came the genie. "Your wish is my command," the genie announced.

"I want a million bucks," the bartender stated in gleeful anticipation.

POOF! There was a bit cloud of smoke, and suddenly the room was full of birds. There were ducks all over the place - eating the peanuts, waddling about, knocking down bottles and pooping all over the place. "Hey," the bartender cried over all the noise of the ducks. "Your stupid genie is hard of hearing!"

"No kidding," the man replied. "Like I really would have wished for a twelve inch pianist!"
