Get Up Offa That Slump: Mad Libs

 

Today for the Blogging Extravaganza hosted by Rachel at Beauty and the Bookshelf, I have created a Mad Lib! I chose part of a scene from Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken! You can find it on pages 366 to 367!

This was a lot harder than I was expecting it to be. I think I needed a refresher course in basic English to do this, but with a little help from two equally clueless humans, I finally got something I'm happy with! Enjoy! :)

Mad Lib:

     "Just shut up and start VERB (ING) each other's PLURAL NOUN already," NAME 1 grumbled, VERB (ING) ADVERB against the NOUN. She would never admit it aloud, but I knew the PLURAL NOUN on her NOUN were VERB (ING) her alive with NOUN. "I'm trying to make up for the NOUN I VERB (ED) when you started VERB (ING) at each other like PLURAL NOUN in heat."
     "Miss NAME 1," NAME 2 said, "has anyone ever told you that you are positively the NOUN on the sundae of NOUN?"
     She VERB (ED) at him, "Anyone ever told you your NOUN is shaped like a NOUN?"
     "That is physically impossible," NAME 3 VERB (ED). "He'd be ---"
     "Actually,"NAME 2 began, "NAME 4 once did try to --- What?"
     "Oh, I'm sorry," NAME 3 said, "apparently the middle of my NOUN VERB (ED) the beginning of yours. Do VERB."
     "I'm going to guess you probably don't want to hear about the time he VERB (ED) my NOUN through the neighbor's NOUN...."
     "Was there a lot of NOUN?" NAME 1 asked, suddenly interested, "Did you lose an NOUN*?"
     "NAME 2 held his PLURAL NOUN up next to his PLURAL NOUN*, indicating both were still ADVERB VERB (ED) to his NOUN.
     "Then, no," she said. "No one wants to hear your ADJECTIVE-ass NOUN."

-The * indicates that both of those nouns should be the same word.

Mad Lib filled out:

     "Just shut up and start DANCING each other's BATTERIES already," GRETCHEN grumbled, RELOADING SLOWLY against the LAKE. She would never admit it aloud, but I knew the ANTLERS on her FAN were SQUATTING her alive with BELT. "I'm trying to make up for the TRAILER I SWAM when you started FISTBUMPING at each other like PINGPONG BALLS in heat."
     "Miss GRETCHEN," PEG said, "has anyone ever told you that you are positively the CORD on the sundae of TOE?"
     She SHOWERED at him, "Anyone ever told you your LID is shaped like a DOG?"
     "That is physically impossible," DANIEL DUG. "He'd be ---"
     "Actually,"PEG began, "DOUG once did try to --- What?"
     "Oh, I'm sorry," DANIEL said, "apparently the middle of my TREADMILL ATE the beginning of yours. Do WEAVE."
     "I'm going to guess you probably don't want to hear about the time he SCRATCHED my WINDSHIELD through the neighbor's CURLING IRON...."
     "Was there a lot of CLOCK?" GRETCHEN asked, suddenly interested, "Did you lose an JACK-O-LANTERN*?"
     "PEG held his CROWNS up next to his JACK-O-LANTERNS*, indicating both were still LOUDLY SWUNG to his OVEN.
     "Then, no," she said. "No one wants to hear your BRUISED-ass NAIL GUN."

Original Scene:

     "Just shut up and start sucking each other's faces already," Vida grumbled, leaning awkwardly against the stump. She would never admit it aloud, but I knew the burns on her back were eating her alive with pain. "I'm trying to make up for the sleep I lost when you started screeching at each other like cats in heat."
     "Miss Vida," Liam said, "has anyone ever told you that you are positively the whipped cream on the sundae of life?"
     She glared at him, "Anyone ever told you your head is shaped like a pencil?"
     "That is physically impossible," Chubs groused. "He'd be ---"
     "Actually," Liam began, "Cole once did try to --- What?"
     "Oh, I'm sorry," Chubs said, "apparently the middle of my sentence interrupted the beginning of yours. Do continue."
     "I'm going to guess you probably don't want to hear about the time he pushed my head through the neighbor's fence...."
     "Was there a lot of blood?" Vida asked, suddenly interested, "Did you lose an ear?"
     "Liam held his hands up next to his ears, indicating both were still firmly attached to his skull.
     "Then, no," she said. "No one wants to hear your boring-ass story."

Did you end up with anything super hilarious? I'd love to hear what you came up with! Share in the comments? :)

    1. When I first had someone fill this out so I could see if I wanted to change any words back to the original it said "caroling like carrots in heat"! Haha! That was hilarious! This was so much fun!
