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.

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"?

Mother drunk?? Never!!! (heavy sarcasm)
