(For those of you who haven't completed a mad lib before, I'm going to ask you to choose words from the text(s) you're reading and sub them into a short script.)
Using whatever book you're currently reading (or several of the ones you've read through the loooong night), assemble the following:
1. A noun from page one of the text you are reading.
2. An adjective to describe the cover of your book.
3. Your name or the name of a character.
4. A verb found on page 23 of your book (or the nearest page with text on it).
5. A noun from the title or the "About the Author" section of the book.
6. A verb ending in -ing from approximately page 76 (or the nearest page with text on it).
7. and 8. Two adjectives from the opening paragraph of a chapter or article from anywhere in the text.
9. Another verb found at the bottom of page 100 (or the nearest page with text on it).
10. The longest time period it has ever taken you to read a book.
Don't look ahead to see the text you'll be using these words in until you're ready to let the hilariousness unfold.
Now, copy and paste the text below and sub your selected words into their appropriately numbered blanks. Leave the completed text in the comments section of this post or leave the url to a post at your own blog. Be sure to let us know which books or texts you pulled your words from.
And remember, humor is always appreciated.
