Wikipedia fill-in-the-blanks
« on: 12 Sep 2009, 11:26 »

I cut some text from Wikipedia, you tell me what the blanks are supposed to say. And no cheating by googling the entire paragraph.

Quote
In the Middle East, it is widely rumored among American and coalition military forces stationed there that [...] will feed on living human flesh. The story goes that the creature will inject some anaesthetizing venom into the exposed skin of its sleeping victim, then feed voraciously, leaving the victim to awaken with a gaping wound. [...], however, do not produce such an anaesthetic, and they do not attack prey larger than themselves unless threatened. Other stories include tales of them leaping into the air, disemboweling camels, screaming, and running alongside moving humvees; all of these tales are dubious at best. Due to their bizarre appearance many people are startled or even afraid of them. This fear was sufficient to drive a family from their home when one was discovered in a soldier's house in Colchester, England. The greatest threat they pose to humans, however, is their bite in self-defense when one tries to handle them. There is essentially no chance of death directly caused by the bite, but, due to the strong muscles of their jaws, they can produce a proportionately large, ragged wound that is prone to infection.

So what does it describe?

Very good. Now, what would you want it to describe? It would be pretty cool if it was zombie gibbons.

Some words are taken out and you fill in the blanks depending on what you think fits/is funny

Or as a group, one person asks the others for (for example) an adjective, another adjective, a verb, a noun, another verb, or whatever the paragraph calls for, and then reads back the story with the group's randomly chosen words filled in.

In that case, Madlibs is exactly what I had in mind.
