Fun with Bible Mad Libs (or, Why Didn’t I Think of This Before?)

For tonight’s junior high youth group, I decided to use a Bible Mad Lib as a “springboard” into a Bible Study time. I’m sure everybody does this, so I’m sharing it only for the pure delight. These things made me laugh. And by “laugh” I mean cackle.

Here’s the template I constructed, using Luke 5:36-39:

Bible Mad Lib

No one (present perfect verb)*___________________ a piece from a new (noun)______________ and sews it on an old (noun)______________; otherwise the (noun)_____________ will be (past tense verb)**________________, and the (noun)______________ from the (noun)_______________ will not (verb)____________ the (noun)__________________. And no one puts new (plural noun)____________________ into (adjective__________________) wineskins; otherwise the new (plural noun)________________________will burst the (plural noun)_________________ and will be (past tense verb)_____________________, and the (noun)_____________________ will be destroyed. But new (noun)______________ must be put into (adjective)________________ (plural noun)____________________. And no one after drinking old (type of drink)_______________ desires new (type of drink)____________________, but says, “The (first type of drink)____________________ is (adjective)__________________.”’
And here’s but one example of what resulted. Again, cackled.

Bible Mad Lib

No one (present perfect verb)*laughs a piece from a new (noun)Billy Mays and sews it on an old (noun)Whitehouse; otherwise the (noun) couch will be (past tense verb)**blinked, and the (noun) trash can from the (noun) ball will not (verb) catch the (noun) Elmo. And no one puts new (plural noun) Elmos into (adjective smelly) wineskins; otherwise the new (plural noun) heaters will burst the (plural noun) lights and will be (past tense verb) jumped, and the (noun) chair will be destroyed. But new (noun) Atlantis must be put into (adjective) soft (plural noun) fans. And no one after drinking old (type of drink) soda desires new (type of drink) water, but says, “The (first type of drink) soda is (adjective) rough.”’
