Miami Beach Vignette: A Bronx lady ( the look-a-like of Molly Goldberg) was
wandering along the beach and came across an old lamp...She didn't know it was
 Aladdin's...She picked it up--rubbed off the sand and a huge Genii
appeared...The frightened woman started to weep..."Don't be afraid," comforted  Mr.
Genii, "I am your servant. I will get you anything you want. Just name your
slightest desire"..."Please," she said, "make me a malted"..."Okay," was the
retort, "you're a Malted!"

("I'm sick. Could you call me an ambulance?") followed by Granny ("OK,  you're
an ambulance").
