Granted! Instead it's the best WoW expansion ever. Amazing, in fact. So enthralling and magnificent. Then you look up from your monitor, and realize that you've been playing non-stop for 50 years and a day.

Everyone in the world now has a kitten at their workplace, and are far too distracted watching adorable kitty antics to fight... or do anything productive at all! The world economy screeches to a halt as everyone stops what they're doing to play with the adorable little kittens.
I wish my pet kitten would stop jumping on the kitchen counters.
Granted! The person who just bought an awesome house on sale in your neighborhood is found murdered mysteriously, allowing you to buy it. When the crime scene investigators track you down (since you were obviously interested in that house), they find mysterious ninja gear in your mysterious gym bag. You are mysteriously arrested, but you can't prove your innocence when you mysteriously claim "the ninjas did it". You later find out while serving your mysterious 15 year prison sentence, that it wasn't the ninjas, but the mysterious housing committee.

I wish I didn't have a doctor's appointment tomorrow.
Granted. I will not corrupt your wish for a longer nose. unfortunately for you, your wish didn't actually include wishing for a longer nose, merely that I would not corrupt said wish.
on the bright side, when you make your next wish for a longer nose I'll not corrupt it.
Granted, their acts are totally unrecognizable as being really corrupt. They kill off all the people who just don't get it for their own good since it's better for them if they don't have to live in a corrupt state.
