Fairy Godmother - game

Other word game threads seem to be slowing down, although maybe it's just the Christmas season. I've thought of a new one! This one is more conceptual than about words per se. The idea is, name an item that someone in humanity desperately needs to have bestowed upon them. The item is completely your own invention. The logic of why the item needs to be bestowed, might be completely lost on everyone else, and that is to be expected. Feel free to put an explanation in [brackets] so that people get what the heck you're on about.

I'll include a canonical example from The Wizard of Oz as an example. Try to imagine you've never seen the movie / read the book.

"Brotherskeeper".

[A cross between a compass and a smartphone. Finds a lost brother anywhere in the world, contacts him with instructions on how to fill in the paperwork to reunite with family.

Based on a true story heard over dinner tonight of a Syrian Kurdish refuge family who had arrived in Canada but had "lost" a brother along the way. He turned up in a refugee camp in Germany but needed someone to help him fill in the volumes of paperwork to be reunited with the rest of the family. Enter our friends' son who, as chance had it, now lives in Germany not far from the camp, works with refugees and stepped in as the "fairy godmother" to get this young man's paperwork completed, submitted and approved.

But not everyone lost will have a handy contact nearby, hence the need for a device to do this for anyone anywhere.]

We have something similar here - its menthol you rub on your nose, throat, chest... whatever area is congested. I do agree a steamy hot menthol face rag would be better.


A control-Z in real life.

Skintone pinwheel. Has a calming effect on people's racial animosities and certitudes.

A bottle of Confidence Juice for when you are facing major challenges like going on a job interview, asking for a raise, speaking to a crowd, etc.

Re: Fairy Godmother - game

Lick 'O' Sense. Basically a salt lick, maybe with some kind of acerbic or vinegary undertaste to it, to jar the brain into gear. Needs to be handed out in large numbers to various politicians, especially Trump. Like would he make unsubsantiated accusations about Obama wiretapping him, if he had a Lick 'O' Sense? Plus the oral stimulation might cause him to shut his mouth more often. Many other people in his political stable could benefit from the Lick 'O' Sense as well.

Finger Cuffs. Companion piece for people who compulsively tweet before they think. Or tweet when they're not supposed to be doing so, like driving a car. Although, the design would need refinement to be safe for that application. Maybe they look a lot like mitts, so you can use your whole hand to guide a steering wheel, but you can't push push push on a dumbphone screen.
