We’re going to start off our week of anniversary contests with a blast from the past – er, a blast from one year ago, that is.
One of the best contests we ran for last year’s party was a fun-filled game of mobile-style MadLibs; we got a lot of hilarious responses. So, I decided we really should go for another round!
If you don’t know what MadLibs are, well, that’s just sad – they were a childhood staple where I grew up. I’ve got some fond memories of rainy afternoons sitting around laughing at the crazy MadLibs my friends and I used to make up. And that was just last week! Anyway, you can get a crash course on MadLibs here, then head on back to this post more details on our contest.
Ready? All right – here’s the deal: go get a pen and paper (you do still know what pen and paper are, right? If not, open a new “note” on your phone) and ask someone (preferably not a stranger on the bus, but you can if you’d like) for just the words in blue on the screenshot below. Don’t read them the whole sentences! Trust me, you’ll get better results if the person isn’t trying to think of words that really fit the headlines. Write down all their answers, put them together in each headline, read the results aloud, and have yourselves a nice big laugh!
Fill in as many of the headlines as you like (you don’t have to answer every one), 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 12-year anniversary celebration. We will pick four winners during each contest: the winners can choose between an iTunes or Amazon gift card as their prize. First place winners receive a $50 gift card, and runners-up will get $25. Enter as many times as you like, by submitting your entries as replies to this post. Employees and friends of Ilium Software aren’t eligible to win, but are welcome (and encouraged) to participate anyway. Today’s contest closes at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time tomorrow morning. Winners will be announced during the day tomorrow.
And don’t forget, we’ve got more going on this week besides contests! Shop for anything in our online store and get a big $12 discount off your purchase! You can read more here and start shopping now.
