Recently, I entered The FOG Extravaganza Giveawayery. Normally, I don’t enter contests, because I never win. I did this time for 3 reasons: One, with a name that cool, this contest was bound to be epic. Two, it was Mad Libs, and Mad Libs rule. Three, it was done by Goldfish, who is talented, smart, and beautiful.
What? She already announced the winners and I didn’t need to do that? Oh well, she’s still my favoritest fish, so I stand by my ass-kissery. Continue reading »
It’s time to play Mad Libs, fuckers! Get out your funny dictionary and fill in the blanks with funny words so I can laugh at with you. Post your words in the comments and I will insert them in to the story in your comment so it’s easier to read and laugh at. Have fun!! Continue reading »
Last week, FOG had a Mad Lib Contest where I took out several key elements of a story and asked you to replace them. The story is one I wrote called The Spanish Main, which happens to be the most researched story on this whole blog (which isn't saying much). It's about pirates! For the contest, I used part of the first paragraph, which originally read as follows:
After an overwhelming majority of readers voted that I should create the new Mad Libbed feature (7 to be exact), I decided that I should give my legions of fans what they want. It’s what any great blogger would do, eh? Without further ado, I present to you the first edition of Mad Libbed. Here is a link to the original post, if for some strange reason you’re actually interested in reading it.
So apparently it takes (number) years to get from (place) to the edge of the solar system. In (year), the same year I was born, NASA launched (name) and it is just now (verb ending in “ing”) our solar system. I don’t know why, but I found this very (adjective) while watching it on CNN. Some interesting facts about (same name as before):
Every time (same name as before) transmits a (noun) it takes about 16 (increment of time) to get back to Earth from where it’s at.
By the year 2025, (same name as before) will be too far away from Earth to (verb) with it.
It will take (same name as before) 40,000 years to get to the next closest (noun).
I really don’t know what else NASA is going to learn from (same name as before) now that it’s outside of the (place). There’s nothing (that I know of) in deep space to (verb).
If you’re so inclined, please play the game and leave your results in the comments. Have fun!

Okay, this is a bit challenging, but quite easy to circumvent. How will you know that I actually wrote 500 words and removed half of them? Ha ha. You won’t! I win!
As a child, and even as an adult, I’ve always loved playing Mad Libs. Often times growing up our family game nights would include Mad Libs. Each person would take a turn asking for the words while the rest of us took turns giving the words. Then hilarity ensued when the person taking the words would read the finished product aloud.
As an adult, what I found to be even more fun is to play Mad Libs while you’re drunk. During a family vacation to Myrtle Beach a few years ago we did this on the deck of our rented condo almost every night after the kids went to bed. Good times.
I am contemplating creating a new feature here call Mad Libbed in which I will turn a previous post into a Mad Lib game with the goal of getting readers to play the game and leave their results in the comments. The goal is to get more reader interaction and offer something fun for my readers besides coming to this site and getting a) an angry, but funny, rant or b) reading about my life’s problems.
I think the challenge of actually creating a Mad Lib instead of filling one out would be fun. However, I don’t want to do it if people aren’t going to play.
So what say you, dear readers? If I do this will you play?
Since everybody is doing polls today in honor of El Guapo’s birthday, I’ll let you vote for it.
