Mad Libs 7th Round!

Come on over to Tom's House for the lighter side of Tolkien Fandom. Remember Tom's House is both powerful and innocent, so keep it clean and nice.

Wow! Okay, let's see what you've got here. The Mad-Lib is based off of Frodo's lament for Gandalf, because I flipped the book open randomly looking for ideas and landed on that page. Here we go.

When o'dark thirty in the pub was magenta,
His footsteps on the hill were dreamed.
Before noonish he went away,
On journey grotesque without a word.

From dollar store to pizza parlor,
From north-by-northwestern waste to southern rocket ship,
Through dragon-lair and easy-bake-oven,
And darkling woods ejected at will.

A pickled sword, a globular nose,
A back that bent beneath its load.
A flutaphone-voice, a swimming echo dot;
A corpulent walkie-talkie on the egg-beater.

He stood upon the bridge alone,
And abdomen and beer both delivered.
His Scrabble board was broken on the candle wick,
In Scotland Yard his salsa tingled.

Well, there you go. My first Mad-Lib in a while (not very good perhaps, but the best I could do). Poor Gandalf's life summed up in a haunting balled about tingly salsa and broken scrabble boards. :D - personally, I'm especially fond of the phrase "flutaphone-voice".
Here is the original song:

When evening in the Shire was grey,
His footsteps on the hill were heard.
Before the dawn he went away,
On journey long without a word.

From Wilderland to Western shore,
From northern waste to southern hill;
Through dragon-lair and hidden door,
And darkling woods he walked at will.

A deadly sword, a healing hand,
A back that bent beneath its load.
A trumpet-voice, a burning brand,
A weary pilgrim on the road.

He stood upon the bridge alone,
And fire and shadow both defied.
His staff was broken on the stone,
In Khazad-dum his wisdom died.

And it looks like Tookish, you're the next in line, if you'd like the honor.
I hadn't realized how hard it is to craft a really good Mad-Lib - I used to do them all the time. :blush:

Egads. :shock:
Here is the result:

The young toucan-lings danced a cuddly red rubber ball around the treacherous toucan while she bellied danced to hop the alarm clock. Cuddling herself between her frigid rocking chair and Gilbert Grape, she lubricated directly toward the goldfinch with no more brush than as though he had been a wombat. On preened my seductive drawer. On activated the affectionate toucan. It slurped like a pipeweed to the picture frame, or at least a comfortably fire house bell.

:shock:

seductive drawer??? :D


The original paragraph is from one of my favorite childhood books, Rascal, by Sterling North. :D

The ducklings performed a marvelous maneuver around the mother duck while she turned back to face the intruder. Putting herself between her endangered brood and Rascal, she swam directly toward the raccoon with no more fear than as though he had been a muskrat. On came my crazy pet. On came the determined mother duck. It seemed like a duel to the death, or at least a head-on collision.
