Last week, I had some down time and was playing around on the Internet when I ran across a ‘Road Trip Mad Lib‘. I LOVE mad libs. I think have a couple of Mad Lib books of my own and love seeing what kind of stories come from them.
In case you’re not familiar, this is how a mad lib works.
You have a short story, usually about as long as a paragraph. Your story can come from a book, the Internet, or you can write your own. Through out, there are words omitted and replaced blanks and each blank is labeled as a part of speech like noun, location or verb. The blanks are filled in without knowing the context of the story. Once that’s done, the story is read aloud. Typically and when done right, your story will be completely and utterly ridiculous. That’s the point. Just let that inner child out and laugh at the tomfoolery you come up with! It’s the most fun with other people, and is played a lot at parties or gatherings but you can definitely enjoy mad libs by yourself too. Mad libs happen to be great for trips because they’re really fun and get everyone involved.
So anyway I’m sitting there and I get this amazing idea: I’m going to get some of my friends involved in this! The results were golden. GOLDEN!! I reached out to my mom, sister, and two friends, combined their responses, and ended up three of the most nonsensical, ridiculous, and hilarious mad lib and I just knew I had to share!
Here is the original blank story:
And this is what my friends and their ideas did to that story (click on each picture to get a better look):
Since I’m a child trapped in an adult’s body, I couldn’t stop laughing! So, give it a try!! Don’t think too deep into it. This works best when you use the first word that comes to your mind. Leave a comment and let me know how it goes! Ready… Set… Go!
