Mad Libs Shakespeare

The inventor of Mad Libs, Leonard B. Stern, has died.


It seems only fair to mark his passing with a little Mad Libs Shakespeare. This is a quicky so it's not formatted well (and you basically have to DIY), don't read the second half until you're ready to fill in:

(*) I realize that a few numbers are missing, I realized after doing this that words were repeated but didn't feel like renumbering all the slots :)

That was probably the best Mad Lib game I've ever played. And I have played a lot of games of Mad Libs.

Duane, hey it's Greg from NC. I actually do this in Shakespeare class. I also did it with the first paragraph of A Tale of Two Cities, making my seniors talk about their lives and graduation. It works great!
