For fun, in the comments, tell me the sentence you came up with.

Maybe we’ll get some new band names out of it.

The Zit Juice Ninjas is already a pretty good one.

    They probably decided to do a homage mad lib in honor of Leonard Stern, the creator of Mad Libs, who died today…

    Do you know the guy who invented Mad Libs just died? http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/10/arts/television/leonard-b-stern-creator-of-mad-libs-dies-at-88.html?src=recg

    Your post is sort of like a tribute to him.

    Not the sentence, but Flatulent Live Chickens would make a great band name, too. Monkey Penis Pumps not so much.

    * Thought #1: Even without the plunger, my Bessemer man could have SO taken the trooper (though that is a bad thing)!

    *Thought #2: I love Mad Libs.

    BTW…how’s the meds working for you Ginny? I ask only b/c my kids get fluid in the ear frequently due to colds/allergies and they told us no meds will help and we just have to wait it out…which lasts like 2-4 WEEKS! However I don’t know if that’s the same as fluid behind the drum.

    You had me at “bottle of whiskey.”

    Mine happens to be legal West Virginia moonshine.
