What Would Your Fountain Coin Say?

Check out this great post by community MVP Palehoof:

I saw a thread over on my realm forum which I really enjoyed, thought I’d mention the same over here.

High level fishermen (or fisherorcs, fisherbulls, etc) can fish in the Dalaran Eventide fountain and catch, occasionally, coins that figures from WoW history have thrown in, complete with the wish they made when they did so etched on the coin. My favorite is Landro Longshot, who wished "I wish i still had that coin." Amusing from the purveyor of TCG loot items.
With that in mind, if someone caught your coin from the fountain in Dalaran, what would it say on it? I’ll start.

Palehoof Geargrinder’s Shiny Silver Coin:
"I wish I knew how to make a Mechanostrider!"

Here’s Bornakk’s:

Bornakk’s copper coin: There are so many cool coins and you got mine, poor you!

And I felt this was simply too good not to share. So I ask you dear readers (and bloggers), what would your fountain coin say? Here’s mine:

Matticus’ Shiny Gold Coin:

“I can’t heal damage of that magnitude! That’s inconceivable!”

What’s yours?
