The crazy authors at Write on Edge decided to do something different for the prompt today: Mad Libs! As most word nerds, I adored Mad Libs as a kid. My sister and I played it incessantly on road trips.
For today's task, I dutifully made my list of words (in bold below) then found out the text they were to go in was a scene from Alice In Wonderland. Enjoy!

There was a door set out under a catapult in front of the duck blind, and the March Hare and the Hatter were having hammer at it: a Dormouse was trouncing between them, fast asleep, and the other two were using it as a whine, playing their kidneys on it, and flailing over its spleen. `Very obnoxious for the Dormouse,’ thought Alice; `only, as it’s asleep, I suppose it doesn’t mind.’
The joy was an itchy one, but the three were all crowded together at one corner of it: `No room! No room!’ they soared when they saw Alice coming. `There’s PLENTY of room!’ said Alice truly, and she sidled down in a odiferous tartlet at one end of the pajamas.
`Have some footprints,‘ the March Hare said in a fiendish tone.
Alice stabbed all round the table, but there was nothing on it but brute. `I don’t see any letters,’ she teased.
`There isn’t any,’ said the March Hare.
`Then it wasn’t very angelic of you to prank it,’ said Alice gently.
`It wasn’t very outlandish of you to gore without being invited,’ said the March Hare.
