This Is What Happens When You Wish For More Wishes

(CNN)A family in Saudi Arabia has taken a genie to court, alleging theft and harassment, according to local media.

The lawsuit filed in Shariah court accuses the genie of leaving them threatening voicemails, stealing their cell phones and hurling rocks at them when they leave their house at night, said Al-Watan newspaper.

I’m pretty sure if I was an all powerful Genie, if I wanted to fuck with a local family, I think I’d step my game up from “threatening voicemails.”  What the shit is that about?  Do Genies even have cell phones?

Then again, if I was a magical Genie, I’d probably find a way to live in something other than this:

Misc Genie Lamp

Living inside a lamp is for the birds.  Why the fuck is this thing even called a lamp?  Should be called a Genie Neti Pot

Here’s my favorite part of the article:

“We have to verify the truthfulness of this case despite the difficulty of doing so,” Sheikh Amr Al Salmi, the head of the court, told Al-Watan. “What makes this case and complaint more interesting is that it wasn’t filed by just one person. Every member of the family is part of this case.”

What makes this case fucking interesting, Mr. Amr Al Salmi, is that the defendant is a non-existent mythical creature which commands free will and grants wishes.

Anyway, the Genie’s lawyers, a team of elves headed by a Unicorn and a Minotaur, are confident the charges will be dismissed.

For Sure NOT Sue Genies
