Ad Libs - Do you know this?

Message  gerardM le Jeu 13 Juin - 15:19

Hi everyone,

Do you know what mad libs are?
The title of the thread was "Mad Libs - Do you know this?". I truly read "mad libs" (see pic aside) but, in fact, it is a stupid pun: the true name is "Ad Libs".

After some time on the Internet, I can figure out what it is but I didn't know this game/exercise, did you?
Do we have an equivalent in French (or say is it a game)?

As far as I could undertand, it is a sentence with blanks and you have to fill in the blanks

Example #1 ->

Example #2 -> Let's play mad libs! Fill in the blanks!
My ____ brings all the ____ to the ____ they're like it's better than ____ damn right it's better than ____ I could ____ you but I'd have to ____.

Enjoy!

Hi everyone,

Now I remember it should be a kind of exercise named "phrase à trous"... no?

I never did this but maybe something I heard from my ex wife way back.

Hi everyone,

> Mad Libs - Do you know this?
Now, I've to confess I made a mistake.

The present title of the thread is "Mad Libs - Do you know this?". I truly read "mad libs" but, in fact, it is a stupid pun: the true name is "Ad Libs".
I'm going to change the title from the initial message.
