The Corrupted Wish Game
How to play:

One person makes a wish. The next person grants that wish with a caveat that makes the wish go bad, then makes their own wish for the next person to corrupt.

Examples:

I wish I had a new Corvette.

Granted. Here's your Corvette. The license plate reads NO TAG, so all violations committed by a car with no license plate will be attributed to you, as will the associated fines and points on your license (because the cops and meter maids write NO TAG where it says "License Plate" if the car has no tag).
I wish I was out on my boat on a beautiful summer day.

Granted. You're out on Lake Superior, which is really cold even in the middle of summer. There's a hole in your boat the size of a dinner plate, you're three miles from shore, your cell phone is dead, and you have no life jacket.


Corruptions are invalid if they undo the grant. Consider this wish:
I wish I had blond hair.

An appropriate corruption would be:
Granted, but you can't write checks anymore because you don't look at all like your driver's license photo. The next time you are pulled over for speeding, you are arrested on suspicion of using a fake ID.

An INAPPROPRIATE corruption would be:
Granted, but three days later it turns back to its original color.

Hopefully you get the picture.

Anyone who uses toilet humor to corrupt wishes will die a horrible, screaming death, trapped in the tank of a Port-o-Potty throughout the month of July (how appropriate). Punishments for other crimes, such as failing to grant or make a wish or improper corruption (see above) must be creative; see previous punishments to make sure you don't repeat. Punishments for failing to make a wish may be carried out by anyone; punishments for failing to grant or improperly corrupting a wish may only be carried out by whoever made that wish.


I wish I understood calculus.

Poof! You understand calculus, unfortunately that knowledge has pushed other neccesary tidbits from your grey matter, like how to open a door. You are now trapped inside your bedroom with a graphing calculator and a calculus textbook.

I wish I had a pastrami sandwich.

Granted. Before you can take a bite, an eagle swoops down and snatches it out of your hand, taking a good-sized chunk of your hand with it. On the plus side, you can make up a cool story to go with the scars and missing fingers.

I wish I could get a full scholarship, including room and board.

Your impressive knowledge of calculus has impressed the University and they have given you a full ride scholarship. Unfortunately you are still trapped in your room...

Voila! You have a bandage for your hand. It is still attached to a mummy. The mummy is angry and wants his bandage back.

I wish that I had started on this CS program earlier.

By failing to mention what CS stands for, your wish is granted. You are now finished with the most awesome Cross Stitch program ever. Millions of old greasy grannies want to be your groupies. They love you, worship you, and they throw panties.

Granny panties!

I wish all my enemies have long prosperous lives... **cackles**

All alone, or in twos,
The ones who really love you
Walk up and down outside the wall.
Some hand in hand
And some gathered together in bands.
The bleeding hearts and artists
Make their stand.

And when they've given you their all
Some stagger and fall, after all it's not easy
Banging your heart against some mad buggers wall.

You now have started on the program earlier, however, it has cost you the last three nights of sleep. The lack of sleep induced you to offer your hand in marriage to that 300 pound, transgender behemoth who works at the convenience store.

I wish I were taller.

All your enemies live longer than you. However, while living they torment your psychological, physical and spiritual health. Long after you die, they are still tormenting your family using economic and any other means they can think of.

POOF!

Your wish lands you in the White House. You have a blue dress. Be careful, it stains easy.

Right about now, I kinda wish I had a chunk of Godiva chocolate. Consequences be damned!

You have a large chunk of Godiva chocolate, but you are pulling it out of the picnic basket on a day with 95 degree heat, 80% humidity, less than ten feet from a full beehive.

I wish I had a bottle of 18 year old Glenturret Scotch.

Is that hot or something? Where I live, we hit 100 degrees easy, with 100% humidity, 115 to 125 degree heat index, and we have AFRICANIZED honey bees and fire ants.

You have your bottle. But only your bottle. It's not empty however, it's filled with bees!

Your wish is granted! You have thirty-two hours in a day. Unfortunately, you only have 45 minutes in an hour. Even more unfortunately, you also have ten bees in each minute. Ouch. They're drunk and belligerent, no less.

I wish I could get an interview with this security/cryptography company I've been looking at.

Oh they'll interview you, all right. As you're dropping off your application, you are mistaken for a prowler. They take you to a windowless room, deep underground, and subject you to an intense and unpleasant "interview."

I wish I could get a teaching job.

Why can't we all just get along
