Didn’t they wish that she was human again? I can see her not being able to get back in her lamp but what other problems?

Having to pee?

I mean, in genie form the output ports just didn't exist. Anything extra just "went away." So now Griha has the bottom half, she can apparently still do magic but now that she is human she's going to have human problems.

aha! So the secrets are true...

I'm glad your having good humor with the jokes.
nice art btw been following for a couple years now i think. Thanks for the enjoyment over the years. rule number one always pay attention to the authors name in posts, was taught that back in 02-03 with a author that didn't like jokes like the one i just did. Stay safe and if at all possible happy. you have incredibly fast response times btw

It's good to look at life with positive attitude and humor. =P Keeps you sane. Besides it obviously was a joke! If an author can't handle jokes like that, then they really should think twice about hosting a webcomic with a comment field hahaha.

I'm glad to hear you've enjoyed the comic all these years. Your support means the world to me :3 And yes! I always check the comments multiple times a day because I'm excited to see what people think! I'm a freelancer so I'm home a lot.

How dare you question the quality of my work! If you're experiencing bugs, it's because you did not follow the proper installation procedures! And just for that I'm adding all the paid DLC's!

Does one pay for the DLCs with more wishes? Longer service time? Something more esoteric?
I'm probably reading too much into this metaphor....

"Genies do not have legs."

But humans do. So the wish worked. Kinda. She's still blue (?) and she's still seven feet tall.

OK, maybe she was seven feet tall as a human. Very rare, but not unheard of. I once met a seven-foot-tall woman. I know she was seven feet tall because she had to duck to get in the door of the shop I was serving in. Her father came in next. He was shorter - only about 6'6" or so. Then her mother arrived - she was a good foot taller than her husband!

And here's me at 5'6"...

Its a skin condition.

All she has to do is say that she has Methemoglobinemia. predominate feature of this condition is blue skin. kinda rare but people will just say, "Oh, like that papa Smurf guy right?" done and now shes eating pizza out on the town with the gang.
Though this another chapter in the Lifetime movie theory, because I can see EX getting all kinds of jealous now.

@WENTHRAL
See I was just going to have someone say "She ate too many blue skittles. You can't favor one color over the others!" but maybe Methemoglobinemia is a better idea...

Maybe she had to visit the umpa loompas after a industrial blueberry accident and became tall and blue at a factory that need not be named?

I was thinking that another way of explaining the blue skin was say that her parents tattooed her blue when she was a baby. That, and other reasons, were why they were arrested for child abuse.

All of this follows from the 3rd wish being, “I wish that Griha had legal ID, that she was healthy and medical notes that explained Griha’s strange features.”

The wish from comic 248 has come true

Back in comic 248 they made the wish for Griha to be human again, and it didn't manifest immediately like previous wishes. But it does seem to have worked.

Wording,, it's all about the wording, with wishes.. IE: "I wish this "'GENIE"' in front of me to be human."
so as i read it ..
he said 'genie' so still genie.. "to be human." so she has human body..

Great legs or not, when it's unnatural for you to have them, you tend to freak out =P

everyone is talking about her legs, and while they are amazing, I'm more curious about this "phone a friend" situation.

Is their a genie help call centre? or an FAQ?
