A beautiful fairy appeared one day
to a destitute Mexican refugee
outside an Arizona immigration
"Good man," the fairy said, "I've
been sent here by President Obama
and told to grant you three
wishes, since you just arrived in
the United States with your wife
and eight children."
The man told the fairy, "Well,
where I come from we don't have
good teeth, so I want new teeth,
maybe a lot of gold in them."
The fairy looked at the man's
almost toothless grin and --
PING!-- he had a brand new shining
set of gold teeth in his mouth!
"What else?" asked the fairy, "Two
more to go."
The refugee claimant now got
bolder. "I need a big house with
a three-car garage in Annapolis on
the water with eight bedrooms for
my family and the rest of my
relatives who still live in my
country.. I want to bring them
all over here" --- and -- PING!--
in the distance there could be
seen a beautiful mansion with a
three-car garage, a long driveway,
and a walkout patio with a BBQ in
an upscale neighborhood
overlooking the bay.
"One more wish," said the fairy,
waving her wand..
"Yes, one more wish. I want to be
like an American with American
clothes instead of these torn
clothes, and a baseball cap
instead of this sombrero. And I
want to have white skin like
Americans" ---and --- PING! -- The
man was transformed - wearing
worn-out jeans, a Baltimore
Orioles T-shirt, and a baseball
cap. He had his bad teeth back
and the mansion had disappeared
from the horizon.
"What happened to my new teeth?"
he wailed. "Where is my new
THIS IS GOOD . . . . . .. . .
NO, ACTUALLY THIS IS VERY GOOD .
. . . .. . .
The fairy said:
"Tough shit, Amigo, now that you
are a white American, you have to
fend for yourself."
