Fill in the blanks to win a prize! Today’s contest is a fun-filled game of MadLibs.
If you don’t know what MadLibs are: where the heck have you been hiding? Okay, seriously, if you need a refresher or want some more details, read a quick explanation of MadLibs here.
Julie has “doctored” a NewsBreak page with fake headlines. To get the full MadLib-ian effect of this contest, we recommend that you first find a partner: grab a friend, a co-worker, or just tap the guy’s shoulder next to you on the train. All you need to do is ask your friend for the words in blue – don’t read them the full headlines! Write down their answers, and when you’re finished, read them aloud – you should get some pretty silly results!
Fill in as many of the headlines as you like, and send us your entries as replies to this post. You’ll need to type the entire headline into the comments, not just your answers to the words in blue – otherwise it’s going to make even less sense. We’ll do the judging and announce the winners tomorrow.
This is the first contest in our week-long 11 year anniversary celebration. We’ll be giving away one first prize of a $121 Amazon gift certificate for the best and funniest entry. Plus, we’ll have runner-up prizes of a complete package of our software and swag to many others. Enter as many times as you like, by sending your entries as a replies to this post. Employees and friends of Ilium Software aren’t eligible to win the prizes, but are welcome (and encouraged) to participate anyway. Today’s contest closes at 9:00 a.m. eastern time tomorrow morning.
