Genieatall

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: jee nee at all

Sentence: Norbert was one smart, shy dude, but the ladies viewed him as a geek. One day he found a brass lamp and imagining himself to be Alladin, he rubbed it. A big blue genie floated out of the lamp and told Norbert he could have 3 wishes. Norbert's first wish was to look handsome, but have dark curly hair. Poof he got his wish. His second request was to be able to sing well and play the guitar...Poof, he became musical! His third wish was to have a sense of humour, so that he could talk to the ladies. Poof, he developed a ribald, ascerbic wit! He was so delighted that he went up to the first gorgeous girl he saw and started chatting her up. She reeled back in horror and said, "You're Weird Al Yankovic and you are way too old for me!" Norbert picked up the now vacant lamp and cursed it! "You're no genieatall and why are those Candid Camera people following me?"

Etymology: Genie (a spirit who lives in a lamp. The one who finds it rubs the lamp and gets 3 wishes, before the spirit can be freed from the lamp.) & At All (in the slightest degree or in any respect) Also wordplay on genital (of the sex organs) to which many wishes allude...

Good word chris. I have been giftmiffed a few times. Hey, does anyone know what the official title will be for the game winner? They should be able to come up with a good title. How about adding "VbD" to the playername since the winner should be awarded a "Doctorate in Verbotomy".

The winner (mother?) will be drunk with the power, so how about "Verbloto"?

- 2006-11-24: 11:48:00
Mother drunk?? Never!!! (heavy sarcasm)

My vote's for Mother. Consistently clever. Having said that ... watch your back in round 2!

'I wish that girl would talk to me...'

DEFINITION: v. To get what you wished for, but not exactly what you wanted. n. A wish come true that's a total let down.
