It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Lib
by Derek Smart
If you are, like me, of a *ahem* certain age, you're almost surely familiar with that old road-trip pastime, the Mad Lib. For those unfamiliar, here's how it goes: you are given a list of particular types of words (nouns, verbs, etc), and you must fill them in with whatever comes to mind. Having done that, those words are then plugged into pre-determined spots in a block of text which you had no knowledge of beforehand. This is then shared with others, hilarity ensuing. Here's an example:
I ask for a noun, and you say, "mattress".
The sentence I was looking at read like this: Please drive the (noun) to town.
You have now inadvertently made the sentence, "Please drive the mattress to town".
Since this offseason is becoming one long, boring road-trip to WallyWorld, without the added benefit/detriment of Chevy Chase doing the driving, what I'm proposing is that we do our own Mad Lib to get us through this winter darkness. Below is a list of words for you to fill in.
*Important! Do this before making the jump, or the hilarity will be less hilarious!*
Once you've done that, plug your chosen words into the text after the jump, then post your text in the comments for all to see! Like I said: Hi-lar-i-ous!
Enough, then. Here are your words:
