Regency Mad Libs

I tried to find an on-line make your own mad lib, but the one I found either didn’t work or was designed for collecting emails and since I don’t have time to write an app myself, here’s a Regency Mad Lib for you to play with. It’s probably more fun if you at least mentally go over the list of words, then if you like (please!!) paste the result into a comment so we can all laugh at those wacky Regency heroines!

The mad lib itself is below the list….

  1.  City or Place or just something geological
  2. adjective beginning with a consonant
  3. verb
  4. body part (male or gender neutral)
  5. adjective beginning with a vowel
  6. age
  7. Month
  8. piece of furniture
  9. item found in an office
  10. complimentary adjective
  11. a man’s first name
  12. another man’s first name
  13. amphibian
  14. adverb
  15. adjective
  16. an older Woman’s name
  17. gerund
  18. Day of the week
  19. male profession – something in trade or service
  20. paltry number
  21. Adverb

What exactly are “colorfully robotic” advances? I’ve never heard of those before. Should I be worried? Newt fit perfectly though.

We played mad libs at my sister’s wedding shower. It was pretty funny.

Clearly, I was too excited about the opportunity to Regency Mad-Lib to actually read the example. Though it is interesting to see that my mind runs in the same vein as Carolyn’s.

Hah! You guys are great!

The heroine definitely is going for cheap.

I wonder if his lordship will rescue the amphibian averse heroine or if she will end up belonging to the blacksmith for 2 pounds.
