When I was a kid, I used to love doing "Mad Libs." In elementary school, we used to do them at recess and use dirty words for every single word option. I'm sure my experience with "Mad Libs" is fairly similar to everyone else's.
This year, I've been doing "Mad Libs" with my class. It is a good space filler for a few minutes when you need it and it is a good teaching tool of nouns, adjectives, etc. The kids know better than to give me dirty words. But sometimes, they give me words that fit in a most appropriate fashion.
I probably shouldn't have even given this particular page, but I didn't really think about it beforehand. The original copyright of this version of the book is 1959 if that helps put the subject matter into some sort of context.
So I present to you "Letter Received By the Father of a Marriageable Daughter" with the child suggested words in caps.
I am in love with your PINSTRIPED daugher LISA and I would like to ask for her ELEPHANT in marriage. She is my idea of a perfect ICE SKATE. She is the only SNAKE I have ever loved and I want her to be the mother of my LEOPARDS. At present I am employed as an assistant JAGUAR and I make a CHAOTIC salary of GOOGLE dollars a week. I have a split-level MATH picked out in PHOENIX that we can live in. If you give your permission, I promise to make her WET and to be a CUDDLY TEACHER.
