Common Word Types
This is a list of words you are likely to encounter. There may be additional word types depending on the story, so if it's not in this list just use your imagination.
  • Noun - a person place or thing (mailman, swamp, toaster)
  • Adjective - a descriptive word (drippy, obese, stinky)
  • Verb - an action (fling, grapple, twiddle)
  • Adverb - a word that describes an action, usually ending in "-ly" (quickly, carefully, secretly)
  • Clothing - anything that you wear (shawl, helmet, jockstrap)
  • Animal - any creature, whether furry, winged or scaley (anteater, pelican, gila monster)
  • Exclamation - something you would say when surprised or excited (Zounds! Cripes! Holy macaroni!)
  • Noise - any sound (plop, boom, screech, splat)
  • Foreign Word - any word in any language other than your own (agua, fromage, blitzkrieg)

Tips
  • Try to pick unusual or uncommon words.
  • Fill in ALL the words. If you leave a blank, your story won't make sense.
  • Don't try to think too much about it. Just drop in the first word that comes to mind.
  • Run the same story again once you're familiar with it. Different words can make the story even funnier.
  • Try making the story with a friend or in a group - if you trade off picking the words, you'll get a much better variety.
  • Use a thesaurus or dictionary to expand your word choices.
  • Your story pops up in a separate window for ease of printing, so you can keep a copy of your favorite ones. Preserve the madness.
  • Brighten someone's day - copy and past your story into an email and pass it on.
