Last Wednesday, Jade and Dave took a leaf out of an Ellen episode and composed their own MadLibs.

(Our MadLibs inspiration, Ellen DeGeneres experimenting with hair products after listening to Jade's Shoe Swap)

For those not privvy to this fun, narrative game... here's how it's done. Write a short story, take out the nouns, adjectives, objects or whatever words that can be substituted. Then get a mate to fill in the blanks without them knowing what the story is about.

Did I just make that ten times more confusing? Watch Aunt Ellen do it with Courtney Cox - maybe that'll help...

And then attempt your own Diff'rent Strokes MadLibs story:

Once upon a time, there was a __________ JOY listener named __________. His bank account was huge but his _________ was bigger. He had anywhere between $_______ to $______ sitting in his wallet at any time.  

One day, after listening to a __________ show called _____________ on JOY 94.9, he decided to SMS in to win the ___________ prize they were giving away that hour. He soon got a call from _____________ who was working on program support, to inform that he's won the ________ prize. 

To show his gratitude, he decided to take her ________ out on a date to  _________ in his _____ meter-long, ______ car. She brought her ________ along and tapped her _____, ____ times for good luck. 

He wore a _______, ________ which reminded her alot of the _________, __________ she dated. And that's when she decided to call it a  night and take a taxi back home to __________.

1) Adjective
