MadLib Mondays

Posted on Updated on

By Kelly Laycock

Every Monday from now until Christmas, the Law Society Library will post a MadLib for you, our faithful blog readers, to fill out. You then send in your list of randomly chosen words, that may or may not have anything to do with the title of the puzzle, and the library staff will select our three favourites out of the submissions and post them on Friday of that same week. If we choose yours, your name will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate from Chapters. We will make the draw on December 21, 2015. Happy Holidays!

For those of you unfamiliar with MadLibs, I have one question for you: What planet are you from?! Actually, don’t feel bad; about half of our library staff had never done one before either. So, on Halloween Friday, we all sat down at lunch and mad-libbed away.

Here is how it worked. I sent around a list for everyone to fill in:

And then I entered everyone’s answers into a short Halloween story! Here is the result:

Fall has arrived with a chill in the Carpathian Mountains. The leaves are turning neon pink and stormy grey. Nighttime comes quicker, which usually means refugees! But today was a skinny day. My coffin went to the rutabaga patch. Donald Trump took us on a hay beheading to a big crooked field. We all got to pick a pea that was robust! Yes, night comes quicker now that it’s fall, but tonight my corn sits by my corpse. Yahoo! What a zombified day!

Ok. Your turn! Fill this list in with the appropriate parts of speech. Then you can either put it in the comments below, or send it to me with the subject MadLibs. Be sure to check out our post on Friday to read the top three picks of the week! Thanks for playing!
