Corrupt-A-Wish!

I'm Better than You Man, known elsewhere as Gloogorshkin!

Allright, this is a fun little game. It goes like this: Person A makes a wish. Person B is the genie, demon, pixie, or whatever other supernatural entity that is being wished to. Person B has to come up with some way to corrupt Person A's wish into something that, technically fits into the bounds of the wish, but is not what Person A wanted. Person B then comes up with their own wish, which it is up to Person A, C, D, or anyone else to corrupt in turn. None of the traditional "rules" apply, you can wish for death, love, etcetera, just be warned that it will not be how you expected it.

Well, let's start then.

I wish for a puppy.

Your wish is granted. Your weekend seems to stretch into eternity when you become shipwrecked on a desert island, without even three CDs to keep yourself entertained.

I wish for a Double-Bacon Cheeseburger.

Your wish is granted. One sock is buried 200 feet inside the Rocky Mountains and is guarded by 16 pythons. The other is to be found 20 000 leagues under the sea in the mouth of a ferocious dark-sea shark. Enjoy the journey.

I wish for a loving partner

Your wish is granted. Here is a pig which you must kill, slice and cure. Here is wheat, yeast and milk - a kiln is available 200 miles away by foot. Here is 57 thimbles each an exact quotient to make up an entire pint. Enjoy your feast.

I will send you five or six contacts per day (courtesy of BG) offering that and much more. All you have to do is give them your account number. Where do you want it from?

I want Microsoft to stop dominating the world.

Granted. A ravenous Saber-Toothed Tiger is now roaming the halls of your home.

I wish that it didn't take so long for games to be developed and released, without any downward trend in the quality of the games.
