.A Bear, A Rabbit and A Frog

There's a bear and a rabbit in the woods and they come across a golden
frog, they think this is an amazing discovery and they are even more
amazed when it talks to them. The golden frog admits that he doesn't
often meet people, but when he does he gives them six wishes. He tells
The bear immediately asks that all the other bears in the forest be
female. Which the frog immediately does.
The rabbit after thinking for a while, asks for a crash helmet and one
appears, which he places on his head.
The bear is amazed at this, but carries on with his next wish, he asks
that all the bears in the neighboring forests be female as well, and thus it is so!
The rabbit then wishes that he could have a motorcycle, it appears
before him, and he climbs on board and starts revving the engine. The
bear cannot believe it, he remarks to the rabbit that he has wasted
two wishes that he could have had for himself.
Shaking his head, he makes his final wish, 'That all the other bears in
the world be female as well.' The frog replies that it has been done and
they both turn to the rabbit for his last wish.
The rabbit revs up the engine and thinks for a second, and then says,"I
wish for the bear to be gay!" and promptly drives off as fast as he can!
