An attempt at a new game if anyone is interested. BP Mad Libs. Make a new sentence or so in traditional ML style, and fill in the previous poster's sentence.

Our family plays a game called "Cards Against Humanity" that seems to work on the same principle, except that it's random and anonymous. Can you follow up with an A to Zed example of how Mad Libs are conducted?
Sure. CAH is fun. Mad Libs usually are sold as a booklet with sentences like the black cards in CAH except instead of anything goes in the blank spaces (or blanks on a black card filled by choice of white card in CAH) it specifies a type of word adjective noun verb adverb and so on. Traditionally, I'm used to one person reading the list of words called for without revealing the sentences until the end. So person 1 would say give me a noun, now a verb, a verb again, an adjective a noun etc.. Person 2 would supply the called for words without seeing the sentences (or black card text) and the usual practice is to give silly choices so that when person 1 reads the paragraph back with person 2's choices it ends up silly. Not sure on the board how to keep the sentence "secret" so slightly different.
If I supplied the text:
(Noun) was busy competing in the (adjective) sport of (insert sport name). He/She had a good (verb) and exclaimed (free choice word)
The next poster would answer copying and pasting the previous sentence with their word choices,
DON was busy competing in the FUNKY sport of darts. He/She had a good FART and exclaimed BLIMEY!
and then supply a new sentence/paragraph for the next poster to pick words for.
I'm open to suggestions/tweak a to make this as forum compatible as works best.

Press Release: XTC have announced a new release titled MADE YOU LOOK. It has all the archival GUANO a fan could want. Superfan donavan commented: "I am especially excited to hear BRIGHT BOLL WEEVIL and CUNNINGLY PARTING remastered and remixed to emphasize the FLUGELHORN and STEEL DRUM."
What was your original thought, bluedemon25? I remember it being hilarious when you have no idea what the story around the parts of speech you submit are, but that scenario can also make absolutely no sense whatsoever.
I agreed the mystery of submitting words that you don't know for context of a used in is hilarious I'm open to suggestions but I don't know how to adapt that to the Forum so in a sort of just winging it way I guess I was suggesting until better suggestions come forth someone post a paragraph and instructs what type of words to go in and then the person goes with it in the next post and makes their own but by all means if someone can figure out a way to keep that sort of wackiness a mystery by soliciting the words lni hidden way having the text they fit in that would be great I'm not really sure how to do that
I wonder is there some sort of way to do what other forms do when there's a spoiler where you have to highlight the text or click it to reveal what's underneath the spoiler hidden text. That might be a way for someone to post their fill in the blanks paragraph as well as call for x amount of different types of words and then the person who submits it and then either they copy and paste the spoiler covered text and reveal it fitting in the words where the original poster goes back and does it whatever is easiest but that way there's an air of mystery if one picks the words without seeing the context but the contextalready exists yet it's just hidden under a spoiler cover that can be revealed after
Oy, mate we need to call for a number first eh? Like : It was Don's Day today. He could be found (verb or gerund) -98 bottles of (noun). They tasted (adjective). He exclaimed (free space sentence/blimey).
Introvertigo: No, thanks, Mare--I don't smoke.

Mare: I have always said things other people only thought...I got laughter and me, too! as reward. Sometimes, though, I felt regret about what I had brought to the surface. Is that my lot in life-to be an instigator?
