Liblr is one of the most perfect uses of the internet I have ever seen. It is simple and ridiculous and fun. And the name is clever.
I don’t know if elementary and junior high school kids still play with Mad Libs, but there used to be these books with lots of blanks in various sentences. Mad Libs was a play on the expression ad lib. One girl at a sleepover would hold the book and ask for a name and an adjective and a noun and an adverb and a verb and another noun or whatever and the other girls would yell out “Tammy”, “silly”, “dog”, “cheerfully”, “fucking”, “algebra” and those words would be slotted into various blanks in various sentences in the Mad Libs book. Then the girl running the Mad Libs would read aloud whatever the resulting horrifying paragraph was. And then Tammy would act like she was just hitting the Mad Libs girl with a pillow, but really she’d be punching her underneath.
The Liblr site lets you play Mad Libs without the inconvenience of having to sleep someplace unfamiliar around other people and all the punching and wondering what happened to your toothbrush that might entail. At its best, the internet is simultaneously endlessly amusing and stiflingly isolating. Basically, you input a word or phrase twits commonly tweet on Twitter and a word or phrase to replace it with. Press Do it –> and see the hilarity ensue!
We can make this a little more social. Try Liblr and post some of your best replacements here.
