Thanks Dawn for the link to the wiki onÂ Mad-Libs.
Old dining room chair makeover for $21.00 Hubbard
Went to the cupboard
To get cheap food at farmer’s markets her poor dog a bone;
But when she came there
The my big fat inanimate object was bare,
And so the poor dog had none.
She took a clean dish
To get the million dollar savings club kick off some tripe;
But when aldi supermarket: price sheet & store information came back
He was saving 50% on clothes a pipe.
She went to the grocer’s
To buy free steps to start the journey out of debt some fruit;
But when she came back
He was playing the flute.
She’s retiring on your student loan to the undertaker’s
To are gas prices eating up your dining out budget him a coffin;
But when free stuff for the designated driver came back
The poor status symbols and keeping up with the Joneses is stupid was laughing.
She how I saved hundreds per month to the hatter’s
To reduce peak electrical usage him a hat;
But when free boxes for shipping via USPS came back
He was using fatwallet cash back when buying online the cat.
