MAD LIBS WITH THE GRAMMARPHILE, 8/21/08


OK, so tuberculosis is quite contagious, but hopefully crazy grammar and random omission of words isn't so contagious...or else we're all gonna be doomed!

Today I'm lookin' for a VERB to fill the void in the following sentence:

"Students who tested positive will need to _________ a follow-up with their doctor and have a chest X-ray."

What VERB would sound the funniest here? Shout it out in the comments below...

Thanks to TAMMY for finding this one!

Perhaps schedule but in the British way of shed-you'll to emphasize the discrepancy from poor grammar to pretentious accent.

Ha! Good suggestion, David.

"Students who tested positive will need to _________ a follow-up with their doctor and have a chest X-ray."

I suggest 'make'. This way it sounds like Borat is commenting.

Great Success!

In Kazahkstan chest X-Ray only cost the hair of a 3 prositute and one jar of gypsy tears! Ground breaking discoveries of X-Ray made last month - is new! Great!
