Hey kiddies! It’s that time of the month again! No, I don’t mean the menstrual cycle, I mean it’s time to play Mad Lib-erals! Don’t fret or sweat, it’s easy. Here’s how you play. You just take a sentence from a news story and place the best word in the blank to make the sentence tickle you in your most sensitive parts. For example:
The First ______ (Lady, harpie, lunchbox) of the United States, Michelle Obama, made a controversial _____ (poopoo, backflip, remark) at a 9/11 memorial during the ______ (sheep, flag, septum ring) folding ceremony. Her _____ (fries, panties, face) was scrunched in a look of ______ (disapproval, phlegm, arrogance) as she whispered something ______ (sexy, mysterious, funny) to her ______ (personal trainer, labradoodle, husband) who was standing next to her. The mysterious ______ (remark, excretion, banana slug) has caused an outpouring of ______ (speculums, speculation, phlegm) that perhaps Michelle Obama may not actually _____ (like, digest, floss) the United States all that much. Mrs. Obama insists that she was, in fact, just ______ (sneezing, lap dancing, telling) her husband what a ______ (beautiful, gangrenous, syphilitic) ceremony it was.
