Mad-Lib Newspapers

Local and national news daily, in Mad-Lib form

Every day you get your local and/or national news, but most of the verbs, nouns, adverbs, and adjectives are replaced with blanks and you get to fill in your own.

"Bush signs peace treaty"

becomes, perhaps,

"Bush impregnates peace monkey"

Let the good times roll!

       //verbs, nouns, adverbs, and adjectives // doesn't leave much text at all really.

       Yeah, and MadLibs require two people in order to play properly.

       This would work for on-line news reports.

       Maybe if the newsreaders played Mad-Libs with each other to avoid undue mental strain to the audience.

       Newsreaders already present the news without mental strain to the audience.

       Baked I'm afraid.

       Insofar as madlibs 'work'. I think they're asinine, but whatever turns your crank.
