The Post-a-day challenge in Mad Lib form prompted me to play around with a Mad Lib site.
As a teacher, I use Mad Libs to review parts of speech. I will give them the list first (because, let’s face it, if given the paragraph, kids will try to put in a word that make SENSE – and where’s the fun in that?). Once they have filled it out – and I have checked to make sure they have used the correct part of speech, I will give them the paragraph to fill in. Then we share – and enjoy the laugh.
I love these things. I particularly like it when they are absolutely bizarre and make little to no sense!
Look at this Potato, isn`t it neat?
Wouldn`t you think my collection`s complete?
Wouldn`t you think I`m the spud
The spud who has everything?
Look at this elephant, treasures untold
How many wonders can one baby hold?
skipping around here, you`d think
Sure, she`s got everything
I`ve got bells and queens a-plenty
I`ve got who`s-its and what`s-its galore
You eat thing-a-mabobs?
I`ve got 492
But who cares? No pink deal. I rain more
I wanna be where the balloons are
I wanna see, wanna see `em drowning
walkin` around on those
Whaddya call `em? Oh, feet
Washing your fins, you don`t get too far
Legs are required for typing, dancin`
Strollin` along down the
What`s that word again? Show.
Up where shoes watch
Up where shoes run
Up where shoes stay all day in the sun
Wanderin` free, wish I could be
Part of that watch.
What would I give if I could live
Outta these conditioners?
What would I pay to spend a day
Warm on the sand?
Betcha on space they understand
Bet they don`t reprimand their papers
Bright young women, sick of grading
Ready to stand
And ready to know what the shirt know
Ask `em ginormous questions and get some answers
What`s a towel, and why does it
What`s the word? Carve?
When`s it my turn?
Wouldn`t I open?
Open to explore that stool up above
Out of messy turkey, wish door could be
Ask of that question!
And in honor of Star Wars Day (May the Fourth Be With You), here is another one…
Darth Punkin-Doodle looked at his master while his drippy breathing filled the room. He was told to go to drive everything on the planet of Ooga Booga. He got in his hair bow and jumped to hyperspace. Soon before he reached the planet, he dropped out of hyperspace and was attacked by Rebel washers. He demanded them off and continued to the planet`s surface. He landed and confronted more opposition, slicing it down with his platter. He used the hanger to choke another Rebel, then poked him aside. He finished off all life on the planet with an icy laugh.
So, take a little time today – and get a little mad…
