Bookish Mad Libs

I’m a little behind, but here is day four of Rachel at Beauty and the Bookshelf‘s GUOTSBA; today is all about mad libs!

I have always love Mad Libs, I mean how can you not like something that’s meant to make you laugh??

The prompt: Mad Libs are probably going to be the next big thing after coloring books, let’s be real. And you can make your own. Pick a scene or passage or whatever from a book, take out names and nouns and adjectives and verbs and all that fun stuff, and create a Mad Lib. Then fill it out and please don’t die laughing. (And be sure to leave a blank version for others to fill out, too!)

Okay, this was hard. At least a lot harder than I thought. I had no idea what book to choose to start this and then I didn’t know which passage to choose. After skimming a bunch of books, I finally decided on one. It’s a little short, but I chose it because it had enough of words to take out.

The Key

  1. Noun
  2. Verb
  3. Verb
  4. Verb
  5. Verb that ends in -ing
  6. Adjective
  7. Noun
  8. Plural Noun

The Mad Lib

Kudos to the person who can figure out where this came from :)

Oh, it’d be nice to see his     1     spill across the marble. She’d    2     her temper once before – once, when her first overseer     3     the wrong day to     4     her too hard. She still remembered the feeling of      5     the pickax into his gut, and the     6     of his     7     on her hands and face. She could disarm two of these     8     in a heartbeat. Would the captain fare better than her late overseer? Contemplating the potential outcomes, she grinned at him.

My Answers

To complete this, I actually had a friend give me the answers to make sure that it was as random as possible. Here goes nothing …

Oh, it’d be nice to see his pine cone spill across the marble. She’d climbed her temper once before – once, when her first overseer picked the wrong day to sway her too hard. She still remembered the feeling of skipping the pickax into his gut, and the voluptuousness of his ink bottle on her hands and face. She could disarm two of these secretaries in a heartbeat. Would the captain fare better than her late overseer? Contemplating the potential outcomes, she grinned at him.

Not too bad! I hope I got all the grammar right haha.

Happy Laughing!
