Synopsis
Woody purchases an old kerosene-type lantern from a shady antique dealer. The lantern turns out to be the home of a genie. The genie grants Woody's wishes, but they never seem to come out quite right. Eventually, the antique dealer who sold Woody the lantern learns of the genie and lures Woody back to his shop, which just happens to have a torture chamber in the basement, complete with rack, guillotine, iron maiden, and electric chair. Woody is saved by the genie and his last wish is to have everything back the same as it was at the start of the story.
