    Corrupt Wish Game 2014

    For those newer to Cyburbia it works like this

    I wish everyone in my department would use diligently use hand sanitizer before/during/after a front counter shift.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    They use so much sanitizer that your immune system is weakened and you all get measles.


    I wish that I could get paid to do what I love.

    Shazam! It's blissful for a brief time but after only two short weeks The Town Next Door shuts down "Hink's All Male Pole Dancing Revue" for running afoul of the adult regulated uses ordinance.

    I wish I had a really nice fedora to wear

    Along with a strange beard and a black trenchcoat.

    I wish that my knees could take bicycling again.

    You can bicycle all you want, sadly bikes no longer come with bike seats.

    I wish that I had a 4 wheel drive today.

    You think like a liberal but wreck your TV when you throw your NPR coffee mug through it while watching Fox news.

    I wish I was at the Tucson gem and mineral show.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    When you regain consciousness you are welcomed by the sights and smells of Baghdad!

    POOF! PAID!

    While celebrating the extra money that was saved, you get a $150 parking ticket for parking on the street on a snow day and your car is towed to the town impound lot where the fee to spring it after the weekend is over is $750.



    I wish close family members were easier to deal with!

    Mike sends DOD's family to the blackjack tables at Oneida, but with DOD's credit card.

    I wish that US 41 was six lanes between Appleton and Green Bay.

    6 lanes it is, but it's always backed up from a jack knifed oil tanker that spilled oil next to a bus load of green peace demonstrators.

    I wish I were back in Phoenix.

    I wish it wasn't so !@#$%$#@! hot here in the summer.

    Sure! Now you have to use Microsoft products for the rest of your life........

    I wish I was living no more than a one hour drive from my wife and sons....
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Poof! You are now back to living with them. Unfortunately, you have to move back right when every one of them catches chicken pox!

    Congratulations, you can now be the mad man in a tank. Also your new cell mate enjoys Silence of the Lambs a little too much.

    I wish I could get a decent wish granted around here.
