"friends, Romans, countrymen..."

Another day spent fully in front of the comp enjoying the joys of surfing and downloading songs. A full 12+ hours and counting since lunchtime after the Malaysian Studies final exam. Well I am currently so bored that I decided to play with a JavaScript version of an old game... a game I used to play in BASIC or LOGO back when computers were DOS based and any computer user was BASIC competent just as our HTML buddies are nowadays. So here's a madlib version of... but let me digress for what is a madlib I hear you say? Well a madlib... (skip the small-fonted section if you already know what a madlib is)...

" a word game that asks you to replace words in a small story. A madlib tells you the type of word, wether it be verb, noun or exclamation, and you fill in the blank with a word of that type. When you fill in all the blanks, you push the button and a new window pops up with your story in it. Here are a list of word types you may be asked for while playing a madlib:

Adjective: An adjective is a word that describes a noun. Some examples include stinky, bloated, and blue.

Adverb: An adverb describes an action. Some adverbs include quickly, joyfully, or quietly.

Animal: An Animal is any living being that isn't human (or who can't speak since this is Ren and Stimpy). Some examples include baboon, crocostimpy, or needle billed chihuahua.

Body Part: A body part is anything that can grow on a person or animal's body. Some include tongue, bugged out eyeballs, or spleen.

Exclamation: An exclamation is anything you say that is exciting or loud. Some examples include "Oh joy!", "What ees eet man!" or "You fat bloated sack!".

Noun: A noun is a person place or thing. Some examples include happy helmet, pants, or rubber nipple. There are many other specific nouns in madlibs including body parts, things, and place names.

Noun Plural: A plural noun means that there are more then one person place or thing. Some examples include hog jowls, stinky socks, and magical singing cheeses. Whenever your asked for a plural word, just remember to write it as if there are more then two of them.

Occupation: An occupation is a job or career. Just about anything you can do can fall under occupation. Some examples include zoo keeper, tank paratrooper, or bomb tester.

Person: A person is any human being. Any name that can go with a human can be used here like Stinky Whizzleteats, superhero, or Canadian.

Person's Name: A person's name is a more specific person (or animal since this is Ren and Stimpy). You can use full names or first or last names. When you're asked for a person's name, use words like Mr. Horse, Brainchild, or Wilbur Cobb. Sometimes you're asked for full, first or last names as well.

Phrase: A phrase is any complete sentence. Some examples include "He ist Ole, du ared Sven!", "Why am I all the time so mean to you?", or "Congrabulations! Ye Gradjiated!."

Place: A place is anywhere you can physically or mentally travel. When you're asked for a place, use words like the hermit's lair, my backyard, or the Land of Weiners.

Place's Name: A place's name asks for a more specific place. Use words like the Lincoln Monument, Canada, or Powdered Toastman's Lair for place's names.

Sound Effect: A sound effect is a noise. Any noise you can spell out can be used for a sound effect, Some examples include "hwarf", "whiz", and "poot".

Thing: Any object or animal can be considered a thing. When you're asked for a thing use words like chicken, cheese phone, or space ship.

Verb: A verb is an action. Anything you do can be described with a verb. Some verbs include run, climb, and eradicate.

Verb Past Tense: A verb past tense is the same as a verb except it's written as if it's being done in the past. Some examples include ran, climbed or eradicated.

Verb Present Tense:
A verb present tense is a verb that is happening right this moment. Some examples include runs, climbs or eradicates."

As I was saying, here is a madlib version of:

Mark Anthony's Address from 'Julius Caesar'
Friends, Romans, people lend me your penises; I come to fuck Caesar, not to praise him. The evil that men do lives after them, the good is oft interred with their pinpins; so let it be with Dr.Mahathir. The noble Brutus hath told you Caesar was ugly; if it were so, it was a grievous fault. If you have panties, prepare to shed them now. You all do know this g-string. I remember the first time Caesar put it on. Through this well-beloved Brutus stabbed; for Brutus, as you know, was Caesar's doctor: this was the unkindest day of all. Here is the week, under Caesar's seal. To every Roman month he gives, to every several man, seventy five dogs. Here was a/an chapati! When comes another?

Now if Shakespeare had written that, so can you. Click here to make your very own madlib of Mark Anthony's speech! (important note: allow JavaScript pop-ups or the story won't show in the end)

Speaking about Shakespeare, here is something for you to do, my friend, . I have only tested this button with IE ver 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp2.030422-1633. It doesn't seem to work with my Opera ver 7.21. What does it do? Just click for an earthquakey headache!
