The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
« on: April 16, 2011, 07:54:27 AM »
I've seen a simmilar forum game on the xkcd-forums, and it's quite funny. Here's how it goes:

  • Person A makes a wish
  • Person B grants the wish from person A, but he spoils is in such a way that you end up with a funny and bad result.
  • Person B makes a new wish
  • Person C grants the wish from person A, but he spoils is in such a way that you end up with a funny and bad result.
  • etc. etc. etc...

An example of how it may look in action

A:
I wish I could play SimCity 4.

B:
Granted! You can now play SimCity 4 on your old Commodore 64.
I wish I had a faster computer.

C:
Granted! Your Commodore 64 is upgraded to the fastest computer available in 1991.
I wish I had more money.

And so on...

Keep in mind that forum rules apply here. So no obscene and offensive language. We should keep things civilized, funny and enjoyable. Additionally the three-post-rule also applies here.

Now let's start with the first wish (and let's see what's the result):

I wish I had more money.

I wish I had a better car.

Granted! You now have a V-12 sports car--but the gas and insurance cost more than your house.

I wish summer was here.

Granted! It's warm outside, but you have to work the whole day inside.

I wish I don't have to go to school.

Granted.  But it snowed last night and the power is out.

I wish it would rain.

Granted! Good luck getting to school/work now, because all the streets are flooded.

I wish I can fly.

I wish I was a superhero.

Granted! However you do not have any superpowers (kind of defies the point of being a superhero, but anyway :P)

I wish studying wasn't so boring.

Granted.  Now it's just hard.

I wish I lived closer to the store.

Granted! The store is now just across the river, but the first nearby bridge is 10 miles away.

I wish I had a boat

I grant you a boat. But it's made from old popsickle sticks, has no motor, no oars or no masts. But it does have helmsman that is always yelling at you.

I wish my potted plants wouldn't keep dying

Okay, your potted plants are now immortal. However, as a bit of a nasty side-effect of that, they kept on growing and engulfed your house.

I wish I had a better house.

Granted! It sucks that there is a giant tornado barreling down on it though  :D

I wish I had a 64 GB iPod Touch.

Granted! But you have nothing to put on your new iPod. That means downloading (and paying for) every song from iTunes AGAIN!

I wish I had a time machine...

Done. It's called a clock. Enjoy.

Given my recent circumstances, all I would wish for is a new bed.

You have a new bed--a great bed! But you live on the arctic circle with no curtains and and it's summer so you're unable to sleep.

I wish someone would do my accounting for me.

Granted! But that accountant secretly takes 70% of your money away and put it on it's own bank account.

I wish I lived in the 24th century...

Granted, but Sc4D doesn't exist anymore and you can't go back.

I wish I knew what to wish for.
