Mad Libs Retail Therapy: Who says you can't learn language arts from Baby Phat?



Remember Mad Libs, the fill-in-the-blank stories that kept you cracking up while covertly teaching you the difference between an action verb and a plural noun? Those sneaky grammarians are at it again with Adult Mad Libs: Retail Therapy, which invites you to complete tales with the names of your favorite labels, stores and other key words. Hilarity is sure to ensue. (While browsing, I also stumbled upon Diva Girl Mad Libs. Why didn't we think of that?)


I came across the Retail Therapy edition last week at the Urban Outfitters in Centro Ybor, where it sells for $3.99. The 48-page paperback easily fits into most purses, providing old-school entertainment during your Auntie Anne's Pretzel break in the mall food court. Moms can bust out the 'libs to sneak in some learnin' during a mother-daughter shopping trip.

Just one question: Does Ann Taylor count as a person or a place?
