Whether you knew it or not, we were testing you. Earlier today, we published a story about an ATM that dispenses tasty, tasty cupcakes, jump-starting a brainstorm of Dream ATMs amongst ourselves. Then we asked you what you wanted an ATM to dispense. Our Facebook and Twitter crews stepped up to the challenge and the DNewsroom was a-buzz with dreamy ATM wishes. The Top 10 Dream ATM responses were...
Real Men or Real Women Chocolate and other comfort foods like bacon or mac & cheese World Peace Lots of Money!
Beer, Wine, Tequlia, Coffee Suncreen and beach accessories (or for another season) scarves and mittens Helpful items for parents (Diapers, Wipes, babyfood, snacks)
Organic foods, packets of herbs and spices or potting soil Baguettes and ice cream!

It seems many of you wanted the ATM to spit out metaphorical or intangible things like messages from the afterlife, notes from God, happiness, contentment, energy, time and one person hoped for an ATM that dispensed the end of ignorance. But, on the opposite end of the spectrum were some truly earthbound responses: airplane tickets to anywhere, good jokes, one hundred dollar bills instead of tens, millions instead of hundreds or simply just free money.
