Want to buy Aladdin's lamp?

Some people seem to believe its somewhere around. Or at least that one can have the power to summon up a genie.

Two men went on trial yesterday for conning a policeman(!) out of 8,200 dirhams in exchange for the ability to control a magical genie. The prosecution said that the two accused told the victim that they could summon up a genie for him, who would follow all of his orders, if he paid them the money.

Having read too many fairy tales, cop paid the money. As the estonian proverb says, "a fool gets beaten up even in the church".
