    Your wish is granted...

    Okay, we get to play evil genies.
    I'll make a wish.
    The next person grants the wish but corrupts it somehow. Then he or she posts a new wish for the next person to corrupt. And so on.

    Example-
    ME: I wish I had Spiderman's powers.

    NEXT PERSON: Granted, but you now have four extra arms and an appetite for flies. I wish I were immortal.

    NEXT PERSON: Granted, you're stuck in suspended animation forever. I wish I were taller.
    etc.

    Alright, for real...
    I wish I had a best-selling novel.
    Oh boy, potato-flavored chips! That's my favorite!

    Granted. Here's a copy of The DaVinci Code. All yours, free of charge.

    I wish I had a million dollars.

    Granted, but it's all in pennies which are going to drop down on you from the sky right about....now.

    I wish I were dating a supermodel.

    I wish I were a professional jazz musician.

    Granted--your salary will be around fifty bucks a year. But you're STILL a pro.

    I wish I had a note-taking machine.

    Granted! Unfortunately, it takes all the notes in an obscure Proto-Indoeuropean language that you don't speak.

    I wish I could take a vacation.

    Granted. You will spend six days and seven nights in...Death Valley! Water, sunscreen, air conditioning, and car to leave in are not included.

    I wish I could speak 5 different languages.

    Granted, it has no ceiling, crumbling walls and has been built before there was anything remotely like a heating system, but it's a castle.

    I wish I would never suffer from writers block.

    Granted, but all you're able to knock out is cheesy dialogue for the lowest of low-budget porn flicks.

    I wish I had x-ray vision.
    I'm back singing now. You can hear me here, here and here. And, if you didn't get what I was doing there, you can hear me here as well...

    Granted, and Dahling, you look absolutely devastating in that skimpy Virgin Atlantic flight attendant's uniform.

    I wish for a spot among the top 5 on the New York Times best seller list.

    You got it. Who would think a Pornographic picture book would be such a hot seller?



    I wish I was satisfied with my life.

    Granted. You find it but no one will hire you because you're "overqualified."

    I wish I were the next American idol.

    Granted. The only problem is they're are all posters in the Take It Outside thread. Good luck.

    I wish Microsoft XP was somewhat more secure than a paper bag with holes in it.

    Sure. Unfortunately, XP was just replaced with a new operating program.



    I wish my house was clean.

    Granted, but now it's so antiseptic, it's actually toxic.

    I wish for a chocolate chip cookie.

    You are. Oops. They messed up your classification. Sorry, they made you senior janitor. Close enough for government work.

    I wish I had a horse.

    Best I could do is a zebra. Oh, and your other pets have become a pride of hungry lions.

    I wish I could fly anywhere anytime I want in a private jet.

    You can. Unfortunately, you'll still have to pay for the gas. ($12K per tank, is what I hear.)


    I wish I could go back in time.
