Three fishermen were fishing when they came upon a mermaid. The mermaid offered them one wish each. The first fisherman said, “Double my I.Q." The mermaid did it and to his surprise, he started reciting Shakespeare. The second fisherman said, “Triple my I.Q.” and sure enough the mermaid did it and amazingly he started doing math problems he didn’t know existed. The third fisherman was so impressed he asked the mermaid to quadruple his I.Q. The mermaid said “Are you sure about this? It will change your whole life!” The fisherman said “yes” so the mermaid turned him into a woman.
