**Founders Day - Madlib (Result) Can't Post

Here it is!

Extra credit (and ice cream) to anyone who can remember (and post) the original words (or at least some of them)
No Cheating! Wink





‘A philodendron?’ said Oiotári. ‘What’s that? But what do you call yourself? What’s your real name?’


‘Hoo now!’ replied Entmaiden. ‘Hoo! Now that would be telling! Not so sprightly. And I am doing the pole-vaulting. You are in my Founders. What are you, I perambulate? I cannot swim you. You do not seem to come in the fragrant lists that I learned when I was young. But that was a long, long time ago, and they may have made new M&Ms. Let me see! Let me see! How did it go?


...........................Learn now the lore of the Living Skateboards!
...........................First name the 1234, the funky peoples:
...........................Geekiest of all, the nurfball-children;
...........................Bedboard the Ballerina, vile are his fell beasts;
...........................Water bottle the acclivous, old as Hawaiian shirts;
...........................Pink fruit of the loom the mortal, master of ful medammis:


Hm, hm, hm.


...........................Teapot the fell beast groomer, keyboard the rum-runner,
...........................Bloomer hair dresser, rice cooker the picker o’ pecks o’ pickled peppers;
...........................Platypus is Freaking out, chocolate truncated


hm, hm.


...........................Creeping phlox in East Bleen, Minnesota, dinner plate in parents’ basement,
...........................Roller skates neeker-breeker-crownéd; glass of bad Chardonnay is shiniest,
...........................Baby’s bottom the smelliest, ointment shiniest


Hoom, hm; hoom, hm, how did it go? Room tum, room tum, roomty too tum. It was a truthy M&M. But anyway you do not seem to loom anywhere!’


‘We always seem to have got knitted out of the whiny M&Ms, and the femine pies,’ said Magpie. ‘Yet we’ve been about for quite a long time. We’re TORnsibs.’


‘Why not make a new zucchini?’ said grammaboodawg.


...........................9/16ths-grown TORnsibs, the Bermuda Triangle dwellers.


‘Hm! Not fluffy, not adorable,’ said N.E. Brigand. ‘That would do. So you skip in Bermuda Triangles, eh? It sounds very nerdy and fungal. Who calls you TORnsibs, though? That does not sound crowbaitish to me. Horses made all the old words: they began it.’


‘Nobody calls us TORnsibs; we call ourselves that,’ said Altaira.




Hope you enjoy SmileLaugh

Oh that last line is *perfect*. [In reply to] Can't Post

A great read, Oiotari! Thanks for pulling this together!

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

with why a picked that passage
Yes, I may have cheated and chose to replace "hobbits" with "TORnsibs" Angelic

"Not fluffy, not adorable." [In reply to] Can't Post

But nerdy and fungal and 9/16 grown. Love it. Cool

"Of all faces those of our familiares are the ones both most difficult to play fantastic tricks with, and most difficult really to see with fresh attention. They have become like the things which once attracted us by their glitter, or their colour, or their shape, and we laid hands on them, and then locked them in our hoard, acquired them, and acquiring ceased to look at them.
Creative fantasy, because it is mainly trying to do something else [make something new], may open your hoard and let all the locked things fly away like cage-birds. The gems all turn into flowers or flames, and you will be warned that all you had (or knew) was dangerous and potent, not really effectively chained, free and wild; no more yours than they were you."

Hahah! [In reply to] Can't Post

Some lines, as expected, make no sense at all. Others make too much sense! XD Very fun.

Ah, how true! [In reply to] Can't Post

"Geekiest of all, the nurfball children"! Laugh

But I really burst out with a laugh at "Baby’s bottom the smelliest, ointment shiniest".

This was fun, Oiotari, we've got to do this more often! Smile

my question is [In reply to] Can't Post

If ointment and a bad glass of Chardonnay are both shiniest, does that mean they are the same thing? If so, does which were the makers intending it to be? Tongue

Eerily accurate. [In reply to] Can't Post

"Crowbait" is a term for a broken down, bag-of-bones horse. So if "horses made all the old words" , it would make sense that "TORnsibs" is not "crowbaitish" enough.

Well, it makes sense in a nerdy, fungal, un-adorable kind of way. LaughCrazy



And suddenly the Tornadoes saw afar off a greenlight, as it were a cloud with a living heart of flame;
and they knew that this was no vision only, but that PJ had made a new thing: The Hobbit, the Film that Is.

Wow, that was fantastic! [In reply to] Can't Post

It also reminded me of an assignment in high school english where we hade to come up with a bunch of random vowels and nouns, and put them together to make poems. A few spots in there looked very much like that assignment.

I've decided Madlibs are educational [In reply to] Can't Post

Since I learned a bunch of new words

Such as philodendron and creeping phlox, which it turns out are plants, even though philodendron sounded like a dinosaur to me and creeping phlox sounded like some sort of sea anemone thing Blush just because I've seen plants before doesn't mean I know their names

Also, perambulate is definitely an awesome word Laugh

Usually these things are rather hilarious. [In reply to] Can't Post

But this one sent me pondering in amazement. As SDC said, 'uncanny', in so many ways. This is a keeper!

I did enjoy that Oiotari. It turned out to be a delightful surpriZe.

''Sam put his ragged orc-cloak under his master's head, and covered them both with the grey robe of Lorien; and as he did so his thoughts went out to that fair land, and to the Elves, and he hoped that the cloth woven by their hands might have some virtue to keep them hidden beyond all hope in this wilderness of fear...But their luck held, and for the rest of that day they met no living or moving thing; and when night fell they vanished into the darkess of Mordor.'' - - -rotk, chapter III

May the grace of Manwë let us soar with eagle's wings!

In the air, among the clouds in the sky
Here is where the birds of Manwe fly
Looking at the land, and the water that flows
The true beauty of earth shows
With the stars of Varda lighting my way
In all the realms this is where I stay
In the realm of Manwë Súlimo

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.
