MAD LIBS WITH THE GRAMMARPHILE, 10/23/08


Ooh, you guys, I'm giddy! The first game of the World Series ended just a few minutes ago. Cole Hamels pitched brilliantly, Chase Utley hit a gorgeous 2-run homer, Brad Lidge continued his streak of being lights-out, and the Phillies took game 1 by a score of 3-2.

It's time for a fun edition of Mad Libs with the Grammarphile! This one involves lawyers. Everybody loves a good lawyer joke, right? So gimme a VERB that would sound really funny in the blank portion of the following sentence...

"Police cordoned off the block and shut down a post office next door to the law firm, which _________ personal injury and wrongful death, according to its Web site."

Thanks to MELISSA for submitting this one. Hit up the comments below with your Mad Libs words!
