Everyone is familiar with the game started by lyqyd on the original forums so I probably don't NEED to go over the rules, but for the sake of redundancy:
QuoteHere's another fun one. In each reply, you state a simple wish and grant the wish of the person above, but add a restriction or other caveat that corrupts or undermines the point of their wish, in a humorous manner. Here's an example:

I wish I could fly.

Reply:

Granted, but you can only fly a foot off of the ground.

I'll start us off...

Thanks lyqyd, but no you won't :P

I wish I could write flawlessly efficient code.

I wish I could select, copy and past multiple lines of code in the cc advanced computer in minecraft.

I wish I had a pet chinchilla.

osmarks

Granted, but the chinchilla hates all humans and will attack them mercilessly.

I wish for all future wishes made by me to be interpreted as I intend.

hugeblank

Granted, your intentions change to support how the user responds to your wish. Nice try though.

I wish I could have a lifetime supply of free IHOP breakfast meals.

Granted, but it's burgers and not pancakes.

I wish I could be more of a help in the communities I leech off ofam a part of.

Ale32bit

Granted, but you'll only receive potatoes instead of krists.

I wish I could write code with only a click

osmarks

Granted, but the code is not for what you actually wanted to do.

I wish for the ability to grant wishes as the wisher intends.

informer

Granted, but the true goal of the wish is obfuscated to the wisher rending their intentions undeterministic.

I wish for carpal tunnel syndrome.

hugeblank

Granted, a van of people repeatedly go under a wide bridge. (carpool tunnel syndrome)

I wish my sound system was better looking.
