This is a direct lift from Mumsnet. I'm not putting it on a Games thread, as I know that there are a lot of us who don't look at games, but I found it funny and cheering, and I think we all need something like that just now!

You have to make a wish, and the next poster grants your wish, but in a way which ruins it. S/he then posts another wish. For example:

I wish I could speak another language fluently.

Poof! Your wish is granted. You can speak another language fluently, but it's Klingon.

I wish I could go on a mountaineering holiday.

Poof! Your holiday is booked. In East Anglia.

I wish I had long, blonde hair.

Poof! Your hair is long and blonde. And growing on your feet.

I wish my garden was tidier.

Poof! Your wish is granted. I've had it concreted over.

I wish I lived nearer my granddaughter.
