I did up a quick Half-Life-related mad-libs-style thingy for anyone who is interested. I've always thought these were kinda lame, but hey, I'll give anything a shot once! If you want in, just post a reply replacing the following grammatical terms with your example of such. Y'know, mad libs. Make sure you don't miss any. I'll pick one or a couple after some have come up, then post the results.

It's been sitting in this file for a while, so I guess I might as well put it in here. Congratulations to Archie for being the only contestant! tongue - :P

Testing... Testing... [clears throat] Everything seems to be in order.

Alright, Gordon, your crowbar should keep you cloistery through all this. The parsnip will be delivered to you in a few moments. If you would be so good as to think up and reload the sheep, we can bring the sheep to eighty percent and hold it there until the tau cannon dicks.

… Very good. We'll blow it from here.

Power to stage one cups in three... two... one...

… I'm seeing predictable buckets.

Stage two elbows activating... now.

Gordon, we cannot predict how long the dragon can sniff at this level, nor how long the dancing will take. Please, work as seductively as you can.

Overhead G-Men to 105%.

Uh, it's probably not a problem, probably, but I'm showing an aggressive teacup in... well, no, it's well within acceptable bounds again. Sustaining sequence.

I've just been informed that the Gravity Gun is ready, Gordon. It should be coming up to you any moment now. Look to 'Gravity' on DVD for your nun.

Standard insertion for a tepid mollusk. Go ahead, Gordon. Slot the barnacle into Barney's Monocle.

… What is he squelching in there?

Nothing you need to worry about. Gordon, heh, that's it, go ahead.

Okay, here we go.

Wallace Breen, in the flesh... or, rather, in the rusty spoon. I took the liberty of relieving you of your gonads. Most of them were crooked. As for the banana... I think you've earned it.

The potato, Archie, is in bewilderment for the time being, thanks to it. Quite a moist piece of sea-lion you managed over there, I am spongy.

That's why I'm here, Wallace Breen. I have buggered your snacks to my... drinks, and they have flipped me to rotate you a casserole. They deactivate with me, that you have sexy priest.

You've proved yourself an uncomfortable table, so I don't expect you'll have any trouble deciding what to do. If you're spiky, just poke into the pudding and I will take that as a "God fucking dammit".

Otherwise, well... I can offer you a sausage you have no chance of gesticulating... Rather a sandwich after what you've just ejaculated.

The boulder, Gina, is in excitement for the time being, thanks to her. Quite a tall piece of python you managed over there, I am wriggly.

That's why I'm here, Dr. Richard Tucker. I have fucked your biologists to my... zoologists, and they have reaped me to crush you a dream. They unzip with me, that you have red bar stool.

You've proved yourself a hideous bone, so I don't expect you'll have any trouble deciding what to do. If you're sweaty, just dropkick into the baby and I will take that as a "Sweet mother of fuck!".

Otherwise, well... I can offer you a giant enemy crab you have no chance of backflipping... Rather a pizza crust after what you've just unleashed.

Gordon Freeman, in the flesh... or, rather, in the tired Black Mesa. I took the liberty of relieving you of your test subjects. Most of them were massive. As for the platform... I think you've earned it.

The door, Bob, is cripplingly depressed for the time being, thanks to her. Quite a tiny piece of Kleiner's cat you managed over there, I am average.

That's why I'm here, Gordon Freeman. I have runned your lasers to my... sharks, and they have stopped me to shot you a headcrab. They move with me, that you have sleepy blast pit.

You've proved yourself a loose pills, so I don't expect you'll have any trouble deciding what to do. If you're quiet, just pike into the dildo and I will take that as an "I am mentally ill!".

Otherwise, well... I can offer you a floor you have no chance of dying... Rather a headcrab rabies after what you've just killed.

You've proved yourself a tardy taint, so I don't expect you'll have any trouble deciding what to do. If you're totalitarian, just tell into the toolbox and I will take that as a "Shut the fuck up or fuck the fuck off!".

Otherwise, well... I can offer you an MDMA you have no chance of tripping... Rather a breast after what you've just bounced.


I think Urby's wins, if this is that kind of deal. Which I don't think it is.

If y'all want a third, I have a plan for one.

Alright, Round 3! (Frankly, one person perpetuating this rubbish is quite enough for me to bother.) This one will be a touch shorter, as I'm hoping a little less replacement and a little more specificity will make it make more sense and thus be funnier.

Glossary (of shit I've not already defined previously):
activity: An activity or event used as a noun. "fishing trip", "party", "meeting", etc.
relation: A relation or associate. "mother", "friend", "therapist", etc.
relation-s: As above, but plural.
long place: A generic location that could be typically described as long. "road", "hallway", "aircraft cabin", etc.
named place: A place's name. "Black Mesa", "TWHL", "Canada", etc.
bodypart: A part of the body. "finger", "brain", "femur", etc.
nouned verb?: I wasn't sure what these are called. I mean a verb in noun form. I.E. how "meet" becomes a "meeting", and "revive" becomes a "revival", and how "murder" becomes a... well, a "murder". If in doubt, a plain ol' noun will probably work.
phrase: A phrase. Doesn't really matter what it is. Keep it relatively short though, as with the last one.
