It had been years since the wish had been granted. People had come to accept the fact that no matter how much food was produced, there was never enough to go around. The world was in a state of perpetual hunger.
Every day, people would line up in their respective countries, hoping to get a few scraps of food to sustain them. But no matter how hard they tried, the food never seemed to last.
One day, a man decided he had had enough. He wished to the genie that there was enough food on this Earth that no one ever had to go hungry.
The genie granted his wish with a laugh, but nothing changed. The man was left to wonder why his wish had not been granted.
He soon found out why. The genie had granted his wish, but not in the way he had expected. Instead of food magically appearing, the genie had created a world where everyone was hungry all the time, no matter how much food was produced.
The man was horrified. He had wished for a world of plenty, but instead he had been granted a world of perpetual hunger.
