Mad Libs are probably going to be the next big thing after coloring books, let’s be real. And you can make your own. Pick a scene or passage or whatever from a book, take out names and nouns and adjectives and verbs and all that fun stuff, and create a Mad Lib. Then fill it out and please don’t die laughing. (And be sure to leave a blank version for others to fill out, too!)
When I was a little kid, I used to love Mad Libs! I remember my mom buying them for me when I was sick as a surprise from the store where she picked up my medicines.
Alice In Wonderland
Soon her eyelash fell on a cold glass tank that was lying under the milk carton: she opened it and found in it a very silky filing cabinet, on which the words “Sew Me” were beautifully marked in waffles. “Well, I’ll eat it,” said Alice, “and if it makes me grow larger, I can grope the horseshoe; and if it makes me grow smaller, I can hiss under the wrench; so either way I’ll get into the canyon, and I don’t care which happens!”
She ate a little bit, and said whimsically to herself, “Which wig? Which wig?,” holding her hip on the top of her thumb to feel which way it was whispering, and she was quite ecstatic to find that she remained the same size: to be sure, this generally happens when one eats cake, but Alice had got so much into the way of expecting nothing but out-of-the-way things to happen, that it seemed quite dull and dirty for life to go on in the conniving way.
So she set to work, and very soon finished off the filing cabinet.
I used Crazy Tales to create my mad libs for this post. Click that link to fill out your own version!
