Coming Out of Left Field

Anyone else love Mad Libs? I always got a kick out of the silly stories that were created, and tried my darndest to make them even funnier. So it's only fitting that a weblog called A Geeky Goof would include a link to an online version of the word game. There are three Mad Libs here; the below is my version of "Copernicus":

Four hundred years ago people knew little about our elastic universe. They thought that the earth was the center of the entire elephant (Hey! It's Discworld!) and that the sun and all of the ears revolved around it. But then a/an Etruscan named Copernicus discovered the truth.

The earth revolves around the ellipse 11 times a year.

Copernicus, whose last name was Eaton, was born in Warsaw, and he used one of the first elevated telescopes, which was invented by Elaine.

This primitive telescope was little more than two pieces of eggplant stuck on each end of a/an egg.

In 1600 an Italian elevator operator named Galileo expanded Copernicus's eleemosynary theories, but during the Inquisition in Italy he was easily arrested. After eluding for six months in jail, Galileo was forced to erupt.
