Junk Mail Mad-Lib

I get a lot of junk mail. Every day I open and then promptly throw out four to six envelopes worth of mail. Today I thought I would try to get something more out of this disposable communication than my regular complaining and paper cuts. And so I proudly present a Mad-Lib based on one of the offers for your hopeful entertainment.

i did this mad-lib last night, even with real lame nouns & verbs (that someone else gave me) i thought it was really funny.

maybe we should post them on gutsy once we are done with them? an idea...

the cardinal rule of mad-libbing is to use the word 'butt' at least once. guaranteed to be funny.

please do post any completed versions of this letter as a comment. should make for some humorous reading.
