Corrupt-a-wish

Postby Drake Zure » Fri May 18, 2007 3:19 am UTC

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and introduce one of my favorite examples of pessimism, a game I learned on a different forum, and introduced to a second:

Corrupt-a-wish!

The rules are simple:

I make a wish, and the next person to post finds an ironic way to derive bad consequences from granting the wish, or to otherwise tag a downside to it, and so on and so forth.
For example:

1 wrote:i wish i had a Corvette
2 wrote:granted. you got it real cheap because it was crushed under a giant anvil.

i wish i was the most attractive person in the world
3 wrote:granted. you are the most attractive person in the world, and both sexes now want your body.

i wish i had a big, juicy steak.
4 wrote:granted. how's your diet going?

i wish i was invulnerable to every kind of harm.
5 wrote:granted, however, you can no longer drive down one-way streets on Tuesdays.

i wish for world peace


If a wish is uncorruptable, there are two courses of action: corrupt it anyways, or answer the wish with "not granted".
The latter is by far the funnier option, in my opinion.

So, what does everyone think?

Oh, by the way...

I wish for three buckets of rotten plums.

I knew there was something missing from here!

Granted, but the buckets have holes in them.

I wish I had a DeLorean DMC-12.

(Also, you have a nice signature Drake. That is one of my favorite songs from SA2. Now I have it stuck in my head)

i'm a Beatlemaniac. i'm listening to Yellow Submarine right now. i'm singing along....

granted, but you can't get it up to 88 mph.

Granted, but it's pedal-powered.


I wish I'd won the $30 million lotto last night.

P.S. I love this game. This is the whole reason why it took the DnD group I used to run 40 minutes to craft a wish to undo the effect from a Deck of Many Things that made one's magic gear disappear.

Unfortunately, for all the bases they did cover, they forgot to specify when they wanted the gear returned.

cool. people like the thread!


granted. a tax hike is target specially at you.

i wish for a fish that will give me a second wish.

(i've seen the "rotten plums wish" corrupted as "your three buckets of politicians arrive a bit late." it was quite funny. i tend to recycle wishes, just so you know.)

Granted, but that fish only grants the second wish on a leap year. The benefits of that wish you won't see till the following leapyear.

I wish for perfect, manipulative control over gravity.

Granted, but only until three seconds after you are off the ground.

I wish I would have realized that signature was referring to a Beatles song, and not E.G.G.M.A.N. from Sonic Adventure 2.

EDIT: I meant it to be for Phenriz's wish, yet it STILL makes sense for crazyjimbo's wish. :shock:

Granted, however you have no control over your eyes and the lasers shoot whenever you reach an elevated emotional state. How's that computer game going? Oh damn, your screen is melted.

I wish I was taller.

Granted, but you can't turn it off, so you eventually get smothered in a pie of meat.
