Sis and Hoyt were vacationing at Hilton Head Island. One morning as they were strolling along the beach, Sis kicked up an old bottle. She took the cork out and out popped this Genie. The Genie said, “Whew, I’ve been in that bottle over 200 years and I thank you and I will grant you any two wishes that you want.” Sis said, “I want you to make me the best looking woman in the world.” Poof, she turned into Vanna White. She then told the Genie, “Now I want you to make Hoyt the sweetest thing in the world.” Poof, he turned Hoyt into a box of Russell Stover chocolate candy!!
