Australians probably don't know what Mad Libs are, so here's the deal...
Mad Libs are a booklet of single page stories with fill in the blanks peppered throughout each story. When I was little, one person asked the other for the required words, giggling to themselves as they filled in the blanks with answers from their friend. The blanks are usually to be filled in with either a noun, adjective, or verb; occasionally they ask for a food, body part, or other random item. When the blanks were completed we would read the story aloud, it was always hysterical. Here's a example of what a Mad Lib looks like:
The teacher's name was Miss __________ (adjective). Some kids thought she was _________ (adjective), because she kept a/an ____________(noun) in her _________ (noun).These days, there is a page proceeding the story which looks like the following example (but longer) to be filled in:
The end result could sound something like this:
The teacher's name was Miss funny. Some kids thought she was hairy, because she kept a chair in her purse.
So whether you're an American who grew up with Mad Libs, or an Aussie who is saying to your self, "Self, I have no clue what Florida Girl is talkin' bout even after that lengthy, yet unimpressive explanation.", the bottom line, is Mad Libs are damn funny. And I think this video of my five year old doing Mad Libs for the first time hilarious, his laugh alone is worth watching, but then again-- he's my kid, I'm not at all objective.
It's totally unfortunate that you cannot buy Mad Libs in Australia.
And now after watching the video again, I have a feeling I may be the only person who thinks it's funny.
