Family Sues Genie Screenshot-sm 1

The only wish that a Saudi Arabian family has is that their troublesome genie behaved better. They have filed suit against their unwanted spirit in the hopes that a court can give them some peace. The family accuses the genie of stealing cell phones, throwing stones, whispering threats and "making sounds most unpleasant." Sheikh Amr Al Salmi, head of the local Sharia court, has promised to look into the claim, saying, "We have to look into this case and verify its truthfulness despite the difficulty of its consideration. What is interesting is that the complaint has come from every member of the family, and not just one."
