One day, a man stumbled upon a magic lamp. Naturally, he rubbed the lamp and to his utter amusement, a genie popped out.

“I will grant you one wish, but you have to pick from three choices. You can either be the richest man in the world, the most popular man in the world, or the wisest man in the world,” the Genie offered.

After some thought, the man finally decided to make a choice.

“We all know that money does not bring happiness, and that popularity just makes you a slave to the whims of others, but wisdom is everlasting. I want to be the wisest man in the world,” he said.

With a nod and a special wave, the genie granted the man’s wish and in no time, the man felt wiser than ever before.

“I should have taken the money!”
