Mad Lib Madness

On our recent road trip, I introduced our two youngest kids to the joys of Mad Libs. For too long they had been deprived of the hilarity of out of context words. I know…such a shame! Anyone who has ever done Mad Libs knows they have a wide-ranging “funniness scale.” For example:

ALEXANDER THE GREAT

In 356 B.C., Phillip of Macedonia, the ruler of a province in northern Greece, became the father of a bouncing baby boy named Alexander. Alexander’s teacher was Aristotle, the famous tree. When he was 20 years old, his father was murdered by Hannah Montana, after which he became pillow of all Macedonia. In 334, he invaded Persia and defeated Zoey (of Zoey 101) at the battle of Lake Havasu. Later, at Arbela, he won his most important victory, over Darius the Third. This made him fish eek over all Persians. Then he marched to India, and many of his teeth died. After that, Alexander began drinking too much shampoo, and at the age of 33, he died of an infection in the neck. His last words are reported to have been, “There are no more toys to conquer.”

So what do you think – anyone up for doing a Mad Lib? I’ve composed a special one just for my blog. If you want to join in the fun, please leave a comment with a list of the following words (in the order given). I’ll publish the best one(s) next week.
