Make A Wish


BASHFUL: Oh, look!  A lamp!  And like everything else around The Nest, it’s both outdated and dirty!  Maybe I should just shine it up a bit here and I can take it to the pawn shop to hock for stripper money….

Bashful rubs the lamp and you’ll never guess what happened next…..


GEORGE: Greetings, Master!

BASHFUL: Wow!  Who are you?

GEORGE: I am George the Genie!  I was trapped inside of that lamp for over a million years and you have finally freed me!

BASHFUL: Hmmmm, is the lamp more valuable with a genie inside?  Maybe I should stuff you back in there…

GEORGE: I am forever indebted to you for releasing me from my prison, and have the power to grant any three wishes your heart desires!

BASHFUL: What?  Three wishes?  Me!?!?  Oh boy!!!  Gee, what do I want?  World peace?  An end to poverty?  Justin Bieber to take a long walk off a short pier?  Nah…. hey Genie!  I really wish I had some booze!



A small bottle of booze appears out of thin air…

BASHFUL: Oh wow!  And hey, that bottle looks familiar.  OH, wait!  What have I done!?!?  I just wasted a wish on a bottle of alcohol!  If I’d have wished for a lot of money, I could’ve bought so much booze that someone could’ve wrung it out of me, and still had two wishes left!

GEORGE: I have to admit, Master, that was the lamest wish I have ever granted in all of my eons of genie-ing.  Maybe you should think harder before deciding on your second wi….

BASHFUL: Money!  That’s what I want!  I wish I had one million dollars!!!



A penny emerges from nothing in front of Bashful…

BASHFUL: Ummmmmmmm……. where’s the rest of it?

GEORGE: Do you think I carry that kind of money on me, Master?  Just because I spend most of my life cooped up inside of a lamp doesn’t mean I can’t get robbed!

BASHFUL: But you owe me $999,999.99!!!!

GEORGE: And you’ll get it….. one penny a day, without interest, for the next 99,999,999 days!  That’s only about 274,000 years to collect your million…. heck, I’ve taken naps that long.

BASHFUL: I’m starting to see now why someone imprisoned you inside of a lamp…

GEORGE: So, how about it, Master?  What would you like for your third and final wish?

BASHFUL: I wish I had a gorgeous chick to share this booze and…. ahem, fortune with.  No tricks!  I want a real knockout!


GEORGE: Of course, Master!  I am here to serve you…

George disappears in a puff of smoke, and when the magical mist disappears….


BASHFUL: Hubba hubba….

MITZI: So, what do you think about your servant genie now, Master?

BASHFUL: Wait a min….. is that YOU!?!?

MITZI: LOL!  Like, of course it is, Sugarbritches!  This is my totally awesome other form, Mitzi the Bimbocorn!  And I’m looking to party down with a real hunk of rock!

BASHFUL: Eh, who cares if you used to be a guy.  It’s you and me tonight, Cutie pie!


BASHFUL: So….. any chance I might get a bonus request so I can wish for a harem?

MITZI: Don’t push it, Master, or I just might change back into George when you least expect it…..

Sorry I’ve neglected poor Bashful’s adventures the past few days, but I promise there’ll be more to come before I kick him out send him back to Bacon.  And Aunt Sharon gets a ton of credit for inspiring this idea upon noticing a striking similarity between George and Mitzi last year!

    Oh friends – don’t say I didn’t warn you BUT you have to check out Bashful’s most recent escapades. Trust me. You won’t be let down – I’m still shaking my head! XOXO – Bacon

  3. I’ve always heard “be careful what you wish for” and this is a prime example of the UHOH that might come our way if we are too hasty with our wish-choosing! Although something tells me this is a match made in heaven…….as long as alcohol is involved that is.

    By now everybody should know that you wish for an unlimited number of wishes first …

    I love “Bimbocorn” It sounds like some kind of sugary popcorn you’d find at Costco. I want a lamp like that. It’s very cool looking.

    • I think the lamp is the remnant of some old bowling trophy from a long time ago.

      Bimbocorn is made from all artificial ingredients, is extremely fluffy and full of empty calories. But it’s fun to eat, nonetheless….

  7. pishnguyen says:

    Oh no! It looks like Bashful got more than he bargained for! Bimbocorn totally cracks me up!

  8. Those genies are a gip, they always get you with those minor details. Me thinks Bashful has maybe met this match. 😉

    A rock and a bimbocorn…there have been some strange interspecies pairings at The Nest but this has to be the strangest! I would worry about any potential offspring that might emerge from such a union (a unicorn statue maybe? That would be painful to birth!) but since the genie used to be a dude, I guess we won’t find out. This is turning out to be a vacation to remember for old Bashful!

    • On the bright side, I think unicorn statue children would be very well behaved and are always seen and not heard. Or maybe not given the way their father acts…

      I was worried when I was asked to host Bashful because I can’t give him the adventures he’s used to having on his travels. But I can certainly concoct some of the most interesting “adventures” for him without ever needing to leave The Nest!

  10. I have never before seen a Bimbocorn! Wow! Are there one of those on the original Unicorn Tapestries? That’s so cool. At least he finally got sort of a wish. I think you have to be awfully careful how you word your wishes to genies. They are all lawyers in disguise!

    • I’m sure there have been bimbos going all the way back to the days before unicorns got left off the Ark. And speaking of the world’s oldest profession, lawyerly genies have been around for ages as well….

  11. BOL!!! Bimbocorns and rocks – two of my favorite beings. And everybuddy luves wishes. I never met you before but I am Louis Dog Armstrong. I heard about you from my furrend Bacon.

    Bashful’s having the time of his life over at the nest! Booze and Bimbocorns indeed…

  13. the idea with the booze was not bad… but I had asked for a check instead of cash… :o)

  14. 1jaded1 says:

    Lol…refine wish for a million dollars to be paid in full in denominations of 20 dollar bills.

  15. gentlestitches says:

    LOL! Cue the djs to spin Wilson Picket “take your pleasure where you find it!” That bottle will not last Bashful long, I wonder if genies can grant their own wishes? 😀
