**World Hobbit Day** Mad Lib! Can't Post

What's "Mad Lib"? Well, a section of text has certain words removed, and replaced with the same kinds of words, provided by the players - who have no idea what word it is that they're replacing, or for that matter, what text it is they're helping make a shambles of! Laugh

I've taken a short but important section from The Hobbit, and removed certain words, which will be replaced by - you! Below are numbers corresponding to where each word is in the text, and what kind (noun, verb, etc.) of word it is. Your task is to provide new words in their place - to create a "revised" text! Angelic

To play, select a word to replace. For example, word #7 is a noun, and if you'd like to replace that word with "umbrella" in the text, then in the Subject Line of your response write "7. umbrella". Keep your responses in the Subject Line ONLY, and don't select a number that someone else has already posted! (And if you can guess the text, don't give it away!) Ready? Here goes:

1. Name of a fellow TORn member
2. Emotion, ending in -ly
3. Noun
4. Occupation
5. Noun

6. Noun
7. Noun
8. Noun
9. Noun
10. Noun

11. A sound
12. Animal
13. Color
14. Animal
15. Place

16. Adverb
17. Plural noun
18. Name of a fellow TORn member
19. Noun
20. Noun

21. Action verb, past tense
22. Noun
23. Body part
24. Noun
25. A sound

26. Another sound
27. Noun
28. Noun
29. Noun
30. Name of a fellow TORn member

31. Noun
32. Noun
33. Verb
34. Number
35. Number
36. Noun
