I was sitting in front of my computer wondering what my blog post for today would be when an idea hit me. “What if I find a prompt from Tumblr and create a story?” But then another idea came in and hit me again. “No no that would be too boring Maddie. What if we do Mad Libs?” And of course, I thought that was a brilliant idea, so for today’s blog we are doing Mad Libs.
Before I get started for those of you who don’t know what Mad Libs are here is a definition from Wikipedia (yes, Wikipedia definitions are better than the ones I would have gave you) “Mad Libs is a phrasal template word game where one player prompts others for a list of words to substitute for blanks in a story, before reading the – often comical or nonsensical – story aloud. The game is frequently played as a party game or as a pastime.”
Now that you know what Mad Libs are, let’s get started with creating our story!

Here is my speech:
Just 22 days ago, my life fell pretty. My Grandma Amber died a red death at the age of 10. This was my speech I wrote by myself and it took me 15 hours to get it right. There were 30 people at the funeral so I was very big.
Title: My Funeral Speech.
Elated afternoon everyone. My Grandma was a little person. She grew up in brazil with 36 brothers and sisters. She helped take care of me when I was in skirts, she rocked me in her arms to the tune of work, played jump- computer with me, watched me dance, took me to downtown and even bought me a cheetah one Christmas. She always told me I was small and that I was her number 56. When I was 100, like any kid, I thought angels were under my car and she always told me that at night there were vampires that would swoop down and kiss my nose and she said there is nothing to be silly about.
She had a passion for dancing, loved cakes, had a fetish for dogs but she was deathly afraid of cats and papers. However, she was the kind of woman that would do anything for me, she would sing for me, as she once told me. In 2100 she became a successful doctors and married my mom Homer. Together they had 99 ugly children. She gave me a special gift one time and told me to hold it close to my eye, it was an ancient gum from when she was a kid and I will never let go of it.
When we got a call that she fell off a mouse, I dropped to the floor and seated for hours. I even threw my phone out the window! I will always have a picture of her in my heart. She was beautiful and she truly touched the lives of those she kicked. I will miss her quickly. Thank you!
Oh wow, that is the speech of the century. Let’s do another one.

Before making a sad turn, always stick your bird .out of the window.
Every 2000 miles, have your airplane. inspected and your fan checked.

Here is the story:
My ideal dream man would be someone high built and into lifting bags. Nothing is more dark than a man with 28 strong arms that protects you and cuddles you when you’re round. He has to love outdoor activities such as dress climbing, camping, eating at the beach and possibly talking the waters with me at like a French ocean somewhere. He’s gotta like cheetahs, does smoke, plays something like the violin and definitely has been married. I’d want him to have long purple hair that’s styled up with side-burns, brown hands and he’d have to have a pretty smile, the kind that sends chills down my ear.
I picture him kind of looking like Beyoncé with a bit of Justin Bieber in there. He has got to have a gorgeous personality, loves kids and would never lay a hand on a man. He would have to be a bit of a easy boy, but not into stealing cars or anything. A American accent would be slow but not required, I would also love a man who I can exchange thoughts with, like why turtles are so fast. Silly things like that! I like men in dark colors like red, preferably plastic or the ship type guys who look all happy with their pants over shirts and skin-tight dresses with jackets.
He would have really fluffy skills and be either a lawyer or like a dancer or something. Also someone who’s handy and can fix a book. Money does matter to me so making less than 400 bucks a month is a problem. Oh and most importantly, he MUST be funny, he must make me punches, that is number 100 in my book!
Okay, let’s do one more.
Mad Libs #4
Adjective: Rainy, Adjective: Snowy, Article of Clothing: Gloves, Geographic Location: Australia, Number: 56, Number: 100, Plural Noun: Chairs, Plural Noun: Pens
Here is my story:
Here is tomorrow’s weather report for Australia
and vicinity. Early tomorrow, a rainy front will
collide with a mass of hot chairs moving from the
north. This means we can expect snowy winds and
occasional pens by late afternoon. Wind velocity will
be 56 miles an hour, and the high temperature should
be around 100 degrees. So, if you’re going out, you had
better plan on wearing your gloves.
Because you know normal people wear gloves in 100 degrees.
So, I hope you guys enjoyed reading these stories, because I definitely did. Almost all of them made me laugh. My favorite story would have to be the ideal man one. Let me know in the comments which one you liked the most.
