The TBB Presents: MLB Mad Libs

Last week we spent a lot of time making fun of the All Star Game. In keeping with that theme, we asked if you felt the outcome of the game would have been different had the American League been running at full capacity. The results? A 2-2 tie between “No, they’re all a bunch of nansy pansies” and “Yes, Justin Verlander doesn’t lose to nobody!”

This weekend, we held a 2-day garage sale with all of the sales going toward Fred K’s Cancer. On the weekend, we raised about $550! But that’s not what we’re going to talk about today.

On Day 2, with 2 hours left in our basura sale, the heat and humidity finally started to take a toll. Shoppers were dwindling down and we were getting pretty bored. Never fear, Brother is here. Amid the sea of random items scattered on assorted tables, rested a small electronic handheld game called Mad Libs. Brother pounded immediately. We spent the rest of the day gathered around Brother and feeding him nouns, adverbs, verbs, and adjectives and then laughing our asses off as he read the results. The joy we gained from this game prompted the idea for this week’s blog: MLB Mad Libs. What we’re going to do is give you 15 grammatical words and you’ll select the words you want in each blank space. For example: Noun = dog. Then scroll down and insert the words into the appropriate spaces and read the story you’ve created aloud to your friends and family. Maybe your neighbors and co-workers too. Remember, no cheating. Pick the words first before scrolling to read the story.
1. Noun (plural)
2. Place
3. Noun
4. Noun
5. Noun
6. Adverb (might we recommend, “gracefully?”)
7. Exclamatory phrase
8. Adjective
9. Adjective
10. Color
11. Adjective
12. Verb (ending in “ing”)
13. Verb (past tense)
14. Adjective
15. Noun

Once upon a time, the Traveling Baseball (1) visited (2) , California to watch a baseball game. Once at the game, they ate (3) and (4) . While sitting in their seats eating, a (5) flew at their heads at high speed. They (6) ducked, shouting, “ (7) !” Amid the chaos, a (8) , (9) , (10) -headed pitcher ran over to find out about the (11) situation. Feeling bad about nearly (12) the girls, he (13) a ball for them. Eventually, the three individuals became the three best friends that anybody could ever have. Unfortunately, the story would not end happily ever after. The pitcher turned out to have a suffocating and (14) personality. It has ruined the (15) of knowing a professional baseball player personally. The end.


Hopefully, you did this properly and did not read the story first because it’s only funny when you have no idea what kind of story you’re fitting the words into is.
