Three wishes with a twist

An explorer goes into an undiscovered tomb for the first time, and in the center of the tomb there’s a lamp.

She picks it up, and as she starts to rub the dirt off of it, a genie comes out of the lamp and says, “I want to know the person you hate the most.”

The explorer says, “That’s got to be my ex-husband. Why?”

“I am a cursed genie. I will grant you three wishes, but whatever you wish for, your ex-husband will get double that amount.”

“Okay, I wish for a billion dollars.”

“Granted, but you ex-husband gets two billion dollars.”

“I wish for a mansion with a swimming pool, and tennis courts, everything.”

“Granted, and your ex-husband gets two. Now make your final wish.”

The explorer walks around for a few minutes, returns to the genie with a stick, and says, “You see this stick? I’d like you to beat me half to death.”
