Notice: This is the first post in a sticky topic, and will repeat on every page.
Corrupt-a-Wish: Be careful what you wish for!

In this game, you grant somebody's wish, but with an unexpected twist.  Then you make your own wish.

Spoiler: How to play (click to show/hide)

Spoiler: Example (click to show/hide)

Other important rules:

The goal: What it is and what it isn't
The point of the game is to be clever and creative.  There are no winners and losers in this game, there are only those awesome enough to win TEH 1NT3RN3TZ.
The goal isn't to make a "foolproof" wish that is impossible to corrupt.  Not only do such wishes have the potential to ruin the game, but they also tend to be quite bland, both in the wish itself and in how its corrupted.  Believe me, it's nothing we all haven't seen before.

Off-topic discussion is bad
Try not to start off-topic discussions.  Believe it or not, just like with every other forum game in existence, this game's number 1 critical weakness is non-game discussion.  It's especially tempting to start an off-topic discussion when you feel your wish wasn't really corrupted.  For instance, if you say "I wish it was 70 degrees outside" and somebody responds "Granted.  Your thermostat is now stuck at 70 degrees.  Kelvin, that is," you may be tempted to point out that your wish was for it to be 70 degrees outside (the astute might also be tempted to point out that there's no such thing as "degrees Kelvin").  But don't.
Unless... (read on)

Side discussion is okay
Let me add an exception to that rule.  Off-topic discussion is allowed as long as you keep the game going in every post.  If you must comment on what somebody said, make an effort to play the game, too.
As long as every post corrupts the above wish and makes a wish of its own, any discussion on the side is perfectly fine.

Don't forget to make a wish when you post!
This is the easiest mistake to make!
If you really want to corrupt somebody's wish but can't come up with a good wish of your own, then just think of an object you wish you had.

But some will still forget, anyways.
In the event that somebody corrupts a wish without posting a wish of their own, and they don't edit a wish into their post within an hour, you can assume they aren't going to, and then you can just make a wish of your own to get the game going again.

Now then, let's begin:

I wish Saira was free.

Edit by Mod: Rules update: This topic is sticky, so this post is sticky on evey page. If the previous poster forgot to post a wish, ignore the post. If you don't every post from the moment where it went wrong will be deleted upto the post where things went correct (if any)

Granted; now nobody ever talks to you or acknowledges your existence, ever.

I wish the upcoming JoJo's Bizarre Adventure part 5 anime would stick with a female voice actor for Narancia. It's been that way since 2002; giving him a male voice actor just... wouldn't feel right.
Edit: Never mind. He sounds perfectly fine. Instead, i'll wish for... uh... infinite money or something.

Granted. You cough up coins every hour for the rest of your life.

I wish for a set of 256 never-before-seen tilesets for use in Knytt Stories.

Granted. They are shitty re-colours of the existing tilesets. But hey, you've never seen them before.

I wish for a satisfying meal.

Granted. You come to a restaurant. You are asked to sit next to the table of a happy couple. You watch them eat and hear how satisfying the meal is they want. When the waiter comes to you, you decide to be honest and tell him you don't actually have money. The waiter throws you out without food. But that meal that couple had, it was a satisfying meal.

I wish I had the ability to teleport anywhere anytime without restrictions.

Granted! In order to activate your power you have to recite pi to fifty digits. Under your breath is fine. Oh, and every time you use the power there is a 1 in 10,000 chance of you instead being sent to the surface of Venus.

I wish I had a magic item that boosted my willpower.

Granted. You now act purely on impulse. You move to Alabama and get a job as a travelling air conditioner repairman, just because you can.

I wish Knytt Stories came with 255 songs by default.
