Episode 190 – Wishwar.Dec 02
Oh, man, another entry in the war.
You’ve never played Wishwar?
No, that sounds like an awesome game. Tabletop RPG? Video game? What platform is it?
None of them. No, Wishwar is a game you play with a friend and Amazon.
Amazon, the website?
Yes, Sven, the website. Not some six foot two warrior woman missing a boob.
Well, that sounds both more and less fun.
Still, Wishwar is awesome.
You just buy things from a wishlist for someone?
That wouldn’t be a war. No, if you add something to your cart for a person, from their wishlist, you can add anything else as well and have it shipped there.
And then you remove the item they wanted and can send them anything in the world that strikes your fancy.
And just mail bomb them with strangeness. But wouldn’t they have your address then?
Sure! But they get back at you and send you something strange, too. That’s why it’s a war.
This is like some horrible game of truth or dare.
No, those always end up with sex.
You play better truth or dare than I do. When I play it’s always only a few rounds until someone starts an embarrassment chain.
Oh, yeah those suck. And yes, this is sort of like that.
Why would you do that to yourself?
Because I dream of a world where a game of Wishwar ends in tractors.
Can you even afford a tractor?
One could end up on a lighting deal or something. You don’t know!
So what’d you get this time?
I don’t know. I learned to only open them in private after… well… after a round a while back.
Oh no. What was it?
Don’t worry about it.
You have to tell me now!
Fine, it was a rather detailed sex doll.
Yeah. Trying to explain Wishwar to a woman, in your apartment, while holding that box? Not smooth.
I would have paid to see it, though. How’d you return fire on that?
Let’s just say magazine subscriptions count, and Amazon offers a lot of those.
Oh, good lord. No.
Well. Good luck?
Thanks! And hope for tractors, man.
Why do you even want a tractor?
Think of how awesome I would look driving down Broadway in a tractor!
I don’t think that would work the way you want it to.
Probably not but it makes me laugh to think about.
