(CONTEST) Aaby Christmas Letter Aab-Lib!

For all who have done Mad-Libs, be prepared for the Aab-Libs!

Be warned, this may take 5-10 minutes, but hey, it’s Christmas break, you have the time! These usually produce some hilarity, so let’s see what happens as you help us form our Christmas letter made specifically for you!

Four Quick Instructions.

  • You’ll need to have a piece of paper or an open word document.
  • Go through the numbered list below and give your creative words for each specific word-type (just like Mad-Libs).
  • Copy the story below and add your words that correspond with the numbers in the story (obviously, erase the numbers).
  • Insert this as a “comment” and it’ll post.  Be patient if it doesn’t post as a comment right away, in some cases I’ll need to approve you as a commenter.

After some time I’ll list those that cracked me up the most and then pick a winner based off those.  The winner gets a great White-Elephant gift to give away next year.

DO NOT READ THE STORY FIRST!!! Fill in these words first (note: it is usually obvious to read the ones that people read ahead first).

  2. A holiday
  3. Something eatable

  5. Verb
