I hear some people actually wish for smoky potions. I couldn't help but think of this situation.

Dudley fail. As usual.

Or, if the djinni were hostile:

The djinni hits! You strike at the djinni's displaced image and miss him!

Rated E. I was missing some original nethack-contained joke, without external references.

wishing for smoky potion is the one and only possibility to get a wish from a wish.

The djinni says, "May I see your ID?"

k - 10 potions of fruit juice.

Hey, If I were dudley (in real life), I would wish for the same. I mean, drunk people always want more "stuff".

@ctaboir: wrong, it's theoretically possible to wish for a container and have it contain a wand of wishing.

It's also theoretically possible to get a wrestable wand of wishing from a wish.

Wishing for WoW gives at best 1 wish, for net gain of 0. Wishing for a stack of smoky potions gives you a chance of multiple wishes, and thus of actual net gain (though the odds suck). Wishing for a container could also give multiples, but the odds REALLY suck. In any case, I wouldn't bother unless blessed smoky potions were valuable for something other than wishing in my particular game.
